Dual 10GbE connectivity optimizes high-speed data transfer and VMware virtualization with iSER

The TVS-972XU-RP provides two 10GbE SFP+ ports that use the Mellanox® ConnectX®-4 Lx SmartNIC controller. They support the iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER) protocol, allowing data to bypass general network drivers, the socket layer, and to directly enter memory buffers of the ESXi server and storage to offload CPU workloads. When both the VMware® server and the TVS-972XU-RP support iSER, it can provide up to 60% increased random read/write performance and 50% decreased latency, providing an essential tool to optimize demanding virtualization applications.

Abundant I/O capability with PCIe expansion

The TVS-972XU-RP features one PCIe Gen3 slot that allows for the usage of various expansion cards to expand application potential.

Empower GPU-accelerated computing with graphics cards

Graphics cards are optimized for graphical calculations and transformations. The TVS-972XU-RP provides a PCIe slot for installing an AMD Radeon™ or NVIDIA® graphics card to boost data-intensive AI machine learning, while also providing benefits for imaging processing and virtual machine performance (via GPU passthrough).

Note: 1. 3U/4U models support high-profile graphics cards that require external power; 1U/2U models support low-profile graphics cards that do not require additional external power (For example, the NVIDIA GT1030). 2. GPU support for QTS only applies to NVIDIA graphics cards. GPU Passthrough for VM is supported by AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards. 3. When Virtualization Station uses graphics cards, the NAS will temporarily stop hardware transcoding acceleration for QTS (and vice versa). 4. Always consult the QNAP Compatibility List for supported NAS and graphics cards before purchasing a graphics card for the NAS.

SSD caching and auto tiering enable 24/7 optimized storage efficiency

By enabling Qtier™ auto-tiering on the TVS-972XU-RP, organizations can just buy the amount of SSDs needed, and attain the highest value/performance and optimal storage efficiency for data storage and sharing.

Improve random data access speeds with an SSD cache

SSD caches accelerate IOPS performance and reduce latency for storage volumes. They are perfect for IOPS-demanding applications (including databases and virtualization) and can significantly improve overall workflows. The TVS-972XU-RP also supports write-only SSD caches to greatly boost write-intensive applications and also RAID 5/6 SSD caches for higher performance and caching space.

Maximise the value of SSDs with Qtier Technology

Qtier™ Technology empowers the TVS-972XU-RP with auto tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency by automatically moving data between 2.5-inch SSDs and high-capacity HDDs based on the data's access frequency. Qtier™ 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD-tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSDs.


Attain enterprise-grade SSD performance levels from affordable consumer SSDs

With SSD prices continuing to fall, even small businesses and home users can easily integrate cost-effective SSDs to boost their NAS performance. The TVS-972XU-RP supports software-defined SSD extra over-provisioning (OP) that allows you to allocate additional OP space (from 1% to 60%) to optimize random write speeds and to extend SSD lifespan. Now you can use affordable consumer SSDs for the TVS-972XU-RP, adjust the SSD OP, and potentially attain performance and endurance levels similar to enterprise-grade SSDs to enjoy faster file backups, smoother multimedia experiences, and optimized virtualization applications.
