POMONA, Calif., Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- QNAP®, Inc. releases its first-of-its-kind Enterprise computing NAS- TDS-16489U featuring dual processors which brings together an ultra-high performance application server designed to compute and store simultaneously seamlessly.  The extremely robust  storage server comes with 16 hot-swappable drive bays + 4 2.5" SSDs for tiered SSD/SAS/SATA storage options along with scalable iSCSI expansion for a maximum of 1,152TB of addressable storage.  The TDS-16489U is powered by dual Intel E5 processors (up to 8 cores each), upgradeable RAM up to 1TB, delivers up to 3,800+ MB/s throughput and 260,000+ IOPS in a single 3U rack-mounted unit. QNAP's powerful embedded QTS 4.2 management software provides easy storage and application management along with stand out features such as Qtier technology, GPU Pass-through and much more.

TDS-16489U Hardware Overview

Powered by dual Xeon E5 processors and 16 DIMM slots for up to 1TB of DDR4 2133MHz RAM, the TDS-16489U features 4 10GbE network ports and is 40GbE ready out of the box.  Three independent 12BGBs SAS controllers allow for maximum I/O performance among the 16 drives and 4 PCIe NVMe SSDs used for caching.  Support for optional RadeonÒ R7 & R9 graphics cards for full GPU pass-through to virtualized machines. With its server grade performance for Big Data applications, the TDS-16489U is cost effective, reliable, and scalable.

QNAP Qtier Technology and GPU Pass-through – part of QTS 4.2

QNAP's Qtier technology dynamically analyzes and balances data into 3 tiers and is part of the embedded QTS 4.2 management software. "Hot" frequently-accessed data is kept in the SSD cache for fastest delivery, less-frequently used "warm" data in high-performance SAS HDDs, and infrequently used or archived "cold" data on the most cost-effective SATA drives. This combination of data management with ultra-fast SSD caching is proven to accelerate network performance with lower total cost of ownership.

In addition to Qtier technology is the GPU-Pass-through capability of the TDS-16489U. As graphics capabilities have long been limited on virtualized platforms, with this feature solves this issue and lets an external dedication GPU be assigned directly to a VM to provide full support for rich 3D graphics/graphic-intensive applications. The recently refreshed QTS for business NAS models feature many other business critical applications including centralized backups and data replication.
