ZFS-based QuTS hero operating system enhances NAS performance and data integrity

QuTS hero combines the app-based QTS with the 128-bit ZFS file system to provide flexible storage management, comprehensive data protection, and optimized performance to tackle the complexity and performance demands of modern IT. From storage management, virtualization, to collaborative media workflows, QuTS hero streamlines your business-critical tasks.

Data integrity is key

QuTS hero’s self-healing ensures data integrity and reliability. Write Once, Read Many Times (WORM) is also supported by QuTS hero.

RAID Z enables robust data protection

Multiple RAID levels allow flexible capacity utilization. RAID Triple Parity and Triple Mirror deliver higher levels of data protection.

Multi-level cache technology with both read and write

Main memory read cache (L1 ARC), SSD second-level read cache (L2 ARC), and ZFS Intent Log (ZIL) for synchronous transactions are simultaneously supported to boost performance.

App Center ecosystem extends NAS functionality

Apps for backup/sync, business, content management, productivity, and more features can be installed on demand to expand the application potential of the TS-h686.

Tiered storage configuration for a QuTS hero NAS

Follow these steps to acquire optimal storage efficiency and performance for QuTS hero.

  • Step 1: System Drive - The first Storage Pool you create is the system drive. Using an SSD RAID with at least two SSDs for the system drive is recommended.
  • Step 2: Read Cache & ZIL - Use more SSDs for read cache or ZIL. You can also install QM2 expansion cards to add M.2 SSDs for expanding cache space.
  • Step 3: Data Storage - Allocate HDDs/SSDs to create a RAID for storing files and application data. If needed, you can configure an all-flash configuration for optimal performance.

Inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction drives big data storage efficiency

QuTS hero supports advanced block-based data reduction technologies (including inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction) to reduce file sizes, conserve storage capacity, and optimize performance. For example, if 20 virtual machines on a NAS are replicated using the same template, then storage space requirements for all 20 virtual machines can be reduced by up to 95%. Whether acting as primary or backup storage, the TS-h686 optimizes storage utilization to provide a reliable storage cornerstone in the Big Data era.

Loading

Real-time SnapSync ensures minimal RPO with real-time disaster recovery

Real-time SnapSync ensures that both the primary and secondary NAS maintain identical data. When data is written to the source, it is immediately written to the destination. If the primary NAS goes offline, IT staff can simply adjust the privilege settings of the secondary NAS to ensure continuous operations. SnapSync provides the strongest support for nonstop business operations and helps users to reduce the risk of data loss.

All-in-one virtual machine and container hosting solution

You can count on Virtualization Station and Container Station for comprehensive virtualization support. Coupled with the Network & Virtual Switch app that boosts interoperability between virtual machines, containers, QNAP NAS, and other physical devices on the network, you can flexibly allocate physical and virtual network resources to simplify network deployment.

  • Virtualization Station - Run multiple Windows®, Linux®, UNIX®, and Android™ virtual machines and access them via a web browser or Virtual Network Computing (VNC). Businesses can run virtualized server applications on a single NAS without the need for additional physical servers.
  • Container Station - Experience LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry®, import and export containers, and create abundant microservices.

Move business data to the cloud and enjoy low latency access to cloud-based data

The TS-h686 perfectly integrates NAS with mainstream cloud services. By deploying cloud storage gateways and enabling local caching on the TS-h686 using M.2 SSD slots (M.2 SSDs purchased separately), organizations can seamlessly use the cloud for storage, backup, and data recovery with low-latency access. This greatly helps in realizing cost-effective, flexible and secure hybrid cloud applications.

  • HybridMount file-based cloud gateway - Flexibly expand storage capacity by connecting to cloud storage. You can leverage QuTS hero apps to manage and edit your cloud files or multimedia files. HybridMount is ideal for file server online collaboration and file-level data analysis.
  • VJBOD Cloud block-based cloud gateway - VJBOD Cloud supports streamlined NAS backup to object cloud storage. The block-based data transmission uploads random data and large files to the cloud in blocks, and only transmits block-based volume or LUN changes (such as addition, modification, or deletion). This is ideal for enterprise-level applications with large file transfer requirements, such as databases, VM volumes, and videos.

Switch operating systems to upgrade current storage

The TS-h686 can also switch to using QTS - QNAP’s standard NAS operating system. This allows you to migrate drives from your current QTS-based NAS to the more powerful TS-h686 to upgrade your storage infrastructure.

Attention: QTS and QuTS hero use different file systems. You must remove all the drives from the TS-h686 before switching from QuTS hero to QTS.
