The TL-R1620Sep-RP SAS 12Gb/s storage expansion enclosure is designed for expanding the storage space of your QTS or QuTS hero NAS. Up to sixteen expansion enclosures can be daisy-chained via high-speed mini SAS HD cables to support up to 4.6PB raw capacity, ideal for archiving/backing up virtualization applications, surveillance recordings, large data, or multimedia. Featuring Broadcom® SAS DataBolt™ bandwidth optimization technology, the TL-R1620Sep-RP consolidates 6Gb/s infrastructure into 12Gb/s. With four mini SAS HD SFF-8644 Wide Ports, the TL-R1620Sep-RP delivers up to 192Gbps transfer speed when connected to a single host. When connected to a QTS/QuTS hero NAS that supports multipath routing, the TL-R1620Sep-RP can achieve smoother data transmission and continuous system operation.
Note: The QNAP NAS requires QTS 4.5.1 / QuTS hero h4.5.1 (or later) with SAS ports or with a QXP PCIe SAS storage expansion card installed. Check PCIe SAS card compatibility
Achieve up to 96Gb/s with link aggregation
The TL-R1620Sep-RP is powered by a low-power 28nm SAS35x36R SAS Expander and supports 12/6 Gb/s SAS/SATA drives. Also, it has four 12 Gb/s SAS 3.0 (x4 Lane) SFF-8644 SAS Wide Ports. By connecting the TL-R1620Sep-RP to the host NAS and daisy-chaining multiple JBODs with two wide ports configured with link aggregation, the solution delivers up to 96Gb/s transfer speed.
Dual 10GbE connectivity optimizes high-speed data transfer and supports RDMA/RoCE
The TS-h1886XU-RP comes with a pre-installed dual-port 10GbE SFP+ Smart NIC (that uses the Broadcom NetXtreme®-E Series BCM57412, NVIDIA® Mellanox ConnectX®-4 Lx, or the same level SmartNIC) to improve bandwidth-demanding data center and virtualization applications and to support RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE and RoCEv2), allowing data to bypass general network drivers, the socket layer, and directly enter the ESXi server and storage memory buffer. RoCE technology can improve NAS performance while lowering the CPU usage of applications that use Ethernet networks, ideal for low-latency and high-speed large data transfers. QNAP also offers numerous options of managed and unmanaged 10GbE switches, assisting organizations in implementing high-speed, secure and scalable network environments without going over budget.
Note: Broadcom® SmartNIC for RDMA support is available in QuTS hero h4.5.2.
Supports SAS DataBolt™ technology, delivers 12Gb/s speed using existing 6Gb/s infrastructure
Featuring Broadcom® SAS DataBolt™ bandwidth optimization technology, the TL-R1620Sep-RP features an intelligent data buffer for transferring data to drives at speeds that match the performance of the host NAS. Whether the TL-R1620Sep-RP uses 12Gb/s or 6Gb/s drives, the NAS host will transfer data to the TL-R1620Sep-RP at 12Gb/s, allowing you benefit from high-speed 12Gb/s SAS transmission with existing 6Gb/s infrastructure.
Note: The QNAP host NAS requires QTS 4.5.1 / QuTS hero h4.5.1 (or later) with SAS ports or with a QXP PCIe a PCIe SAS storage expansion card installed. Check PCIe SAS card compatibility
