Product Description

QNAP TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 is the world's first unified NAS supporting Auto Tiering to deliver ongoing optimization of data across high-performance SSD, 12Gbps SAS drives and high-capacity SATA disks. Powered by an Intel Xeon E3 CPU, the 40GbE-ready TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 delivers exceptional performance and supports cross-platform file sharing, comprehensive backup solutions, iSCSI & virtualization applications, and more practical business functions. With the powerful QTS operating system, the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 performs as a reliable, scalable and unbeatable unified and tiered storage solution for businesses. QNAP's Qtier Technology empowers the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 with Auto Tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency. With Auto Tiering, the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 can automatically move hot data to high-performance storage tiers and cold data to lower-cost, higher-capacity drives, making the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 an extremely efficient shared resource. Businesses will no longer have to invest heavily in expensive Flash technology, but can still enjoy exceptional application performance and lower TCO of storage from Auto Tiering with the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2. Implementing DataBolt technology, the TVS-EC1680U-SAS-RP R2 can deliver twice the throughput for 6Gbps SAS drives by automatically aggregating the bandwidth from 3Gbps and 6Gbps drives to fully utilize 12Gbps, effectively accelerating the existing infrastructure.
