Qtier now supports "On Demand Allocation Priority", providing customizable flexibility to arrange tiered storage suited for your system environments and application demands.
Built-in 10GbE ports with 40GbE compatibility
The TS-1685 offers not only four inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports but also two 10GBASE-T ports to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks, capable of delivering lightning-fast throughput for businesses that demand higher bandwidth for virtualization and fast backup & restoration for an ever-growing amount of data. The extra PCIe slots allow for installing optional 10GbE/ 40GbE network cards for flexible high-speed network deployment. Coupled with its large storage capacity potential, the 10GbE-ready TS-1685 is perfect for companies to store massive amounts of data and excel in fast data transmission.
550W power supply fuels GPU passthrough
Graphics cards are optimized for graphical calculations and transformations, but require significantly more power compared to other hardware. The TS-1685 offers an option with a 550 watt power supply that is capable of powering an AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card for smooth GPU passthrough to virtual machines.
Upgrade your IT environment with QNAP's fast and affordable 10GbE Switch!
QNAP 10GbE/NBASE-T unmanaged switches allow you to instantly upgrade your network environment at a cost-effective price. With a 10GbE network you can enjoy blazing-fast transfer speeds, empower bandwidth-demanding tasks like virtualization, and enable simultaneous real-time access to large NAS-based files using multiple workstations (ideal for video editing and multimedia). QNAP also provides a 10GbE PCIe network expansion card for Windows/Linux PCs to take advantage of high-speed LAN environments.
QTS 4.3 - The most intelligent and intuitive NAS operating system
With modularized multiple applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more. New intelligent agent services have also been added to simplify system operations and management. The user-friendly QTS features an intelligent desktop that allows you to find desired functions quickly, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently with greater working efficiency, and provides a built-in App Center with install-on-demand apps to extend NAS functionality. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences and incorporates advanced features.
Storage for comprehensive virtualization applications
The TS-1685 is a comprehensive iSCSI/IP-SAN storage solution, and supports VMware, Citrix, Microsoft Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012 R2, benefiting flexible deployment and management in virtualization environments. The TS-1685 supports VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supports QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications.
Optimized performance for VMware Virtualization with iSER
The TS-1685 supports the iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER) protocol to boost data transfer performance of the TS-1685 as VMware ESXi storage and to reduce the CPU load of the ESXi server. iSER can provide up to 20% increased performance, providing an essential tool to optimize demanding virtualization applications.
Note: To create an iSER connection with VMware ESXi, both the server and NAS require compatible Mellanox ConnectX-3 Pro network cards (LAN-10G2SF-MLX, LAN-40G2SF-MLX) and switches compatible with Mellanox or supporting PFC (Priority Flow Control) configuration.
Integrated virtualization and container solutions
Virtualization Station allows you to host virtual machines (VM) on the TS-1685 and access them via a web browser or VNC. It supports multiple operating systems, fast VM creation, VM backup & restoration, VM import/export, snapshot, and Device Management for centrally managing VMs. No longer constrained by physical network performance, the Network & Virtual Switch greatly increases data transfer between VMs, containers and NAS through the internal interface. The TS-1685 also features Container Station, which integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies. You can operate multiple isolated Linux systems on the TS-1685 as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry. Containers Station also supports the QIoT Containers platform that helps quickly structure your IoT environment and deployment on your private IoT cloud.
QRM+: Centralized management solution for networked computing devices
QRM+ is QNAP's Centralized Management Solution, designed for IT teams, for networked computing devices. It provides a single-point solution to discover, map, monitor and manage all of the critical computing devices (including servers, PCs, and thin clients) in your network, and facilitates device discovery with the graphical topology diagram. QRM+ supports IPMI 2.0, provides remote KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) for certain IPMI devices, and supports tracking every action using KVM recording and playback. Simply install QRMAgent on your Windows and Linux devices and you will see their system status on the QRM+ management interface. With centralized management using QRM+ on the NAS, IT infrastructure and device security is enhanced while troubleshooting and network resource performance analysis is greatly simplified.
