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 (WORM) is also supported.

Data reduction improves storage efficiency and performance

Inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction reduce file size to conserve storage capacity and optimize performance.

Multi-level cache technology

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

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.

QSAL (QNAP SSD Antiwear Leveling) enhances data protection

RAID-level SSD lifespan is automatically and regularly detected to prevent simultaneous SSD failure, improving your data protection and system reliability.

App Center ecosystem extends NAS functionality

Apps for backup/sync, virtual machines/containers, content management, productivity, and more features can be used to expand the application potential of the TVS-h1688X.

Tiered storage configuration for a QuTS hero NAS

Basic requirements for setup are similar to QTS. We recommend you to follow these steps to acquire optimal storage efficiency and performance for QuTS hero.

Step 1: System Drive & Default Shared Folders
Step 2: Read Cache & ZIL
Step 3: Data Storage

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 TVS-h1688X optimizes storage utilization to provide a reliable storage cornerstone in the Big Data era.

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.

The TVS-h1688X also supports snapshots and remote backup to help organizations accomplish routine backup tasks cost-effectively and efficiently.

 

Snapshots multiply backup protection

Attain peace of mind with near-limitless, instant snapshots. Copy-on-write technology makes snapshot creation almost instantaneous without affecting ongoing data writing. Snapshot Replica replicates snapshot files to the backup NAS, simplifying data protection with version control.

HBS simplifies 3-2-1 backup plans

HBS centralizes backup, restoration, and synchronization for easily transferring data in the TVS-h1688X to another QNAP NAS, remote server, or cloud storage space. HBS supports QuDedup technology that eliminates redundant data at the source and makes multi-version backup faster.

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.
