The compact 2U rackmount TS-873AeU combines an AMD Ryzen™ V1000 series V1500B quad-core/eight-thread 2.2 GHz processor and dual-2.5GbE connectivity in one chassis. Compared to its previous generation, the TS-873AeU is enhanced with two M.2 PCIe Gen3 x 1 ports for NVMe SSD cache acceleration or Edge TPU empowered AI image recognition. Cutting-edge hardware integrated with comprehensive software solutions makes the TS-873AeU the preeminent choice to tackle resource-demanding applications and tasks, such as virtual machines or intensive multi-user access. The space-efficient short depth design of only 11.7 inches (297.4 mm) makes it easy to install in small media cabinets or places with a lot of cabling. The TS-873AeU also features two redundant power supplies to ensure maximum system uptime.

Dual-2.5GbE connectivity

Features two 2.5GbE ports. Up to 5 Gbps transfer speeds can be achieved by using port trunking.

PCIe expandability

Features one PCIe Gen3 x 8 port. Add extra functionality with PCIe cards, including 10/25GbE ports, QM2, or Fibre Channel.

Optimized SSD performance

Features two M.2 PCIe Gen3 ports to install NVMe SSDs and empower Qtier™ and SSD caching technology

Hybrid cloud storage

Supports block-based and file-based cloud storage gateways with local caching for low-latency access to cloud data.

Virtual machine applications

Host multiple virtual machines and containers to run a wide range of applications.

2U Short depth design

The rackmount NAS has a short-depth design of only 30 cm. It is perfectly suited for installation in a compact rack, or places with a lot of cabling

Absolute performance with AMD Ryzen™ and up to 64GB RAM

Powered by a 4-core/8-thread AMD Ryzen™ V1500B 2.2GHz processor with AES-NI encryption acceleration and up to 64GB DDR4 RAM (supports ECC RAM), the rackmount TS-873AeU delivers aggressive yet power-smart performance to drive resource-demanding business applications such as VDI, R&D, private cloud, and server virtualization.

Reliable, high-performance storage for virtualization

The TS-873AeU supports block-based iSCSI LUN as a reliable, high-performance, and affordable storage solution for mainstream virtualization environments. It supports VMware® VAAI and Microsoft® ODX to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively.

Optimized performance for VMware Virtualization with iSER

The iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER) protocol boosts the data transfer performance of VMware® ESXi storage and reduces the CPU load of the ESXi server. iSER support can be added to the TS-873AeU by installing a QNAP QXG-10G2SF-CX4 10GbE PCIe card, which uses the Mellanox® ConnectX-4 controller. iSER can provide a significant increase in performance, providing an essential tool to optimize demanding virtualization applications.
Note: To create an iSER connection with VMware ESXi, both the server and NAS require compatible Mellanox® NICs and switches compatible with Mellanox® or supporting PFC (Priority Flow Control) configuration.

All-in-one server to host virtual machines and containers

By running multiple virtual machines and containers on the TS-873AeU, you can deploy multi-tenant environments and applications to increase management efficiency and save hardware costs. 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

QM2 - Upgrade your QNAP NAS Experience with M.2 SSD Caching and 10G in One Card

QM2 is designed specifically to upgrade your entry and mid-end QNAP NAS system! QNAP puts 2 M.2 SSD slots (SATA or PCIe NVMe) and one 10GBase-T network port into a single PCIe expansion card. Installed M.2 SSD sticks are covered by a giant heatsink as well as a smart fan for heat dissipation which ensure operational stability and longevity. With this PCIe expansion card, you can enable SSD Caching or auto tiering while populate all your NAS bays with high capacity HDD!

Application for QM2 SSD slots:

  1. Create a volume on these SSD and use them as extra storage
  2. Enable Read Cache
  3. Enable Read/Write Cache
  4. Enable Qtier feature
  5. Boost performance in case of memory swapping

What is Qbit?

Configured system orders start here!
The selected drives are batch controlled and tested using our HDD and SSD servers. Passed drives are then installed in the NAS with Volume and RAID set. Our pre-burn testing prepares the NAS with an initial system and drive testing cycle to ensure that the integrity of the entire system is tested and passed with no issues at all.

Our stress testing (burn-test) cycle commences for a minimum of 24 hours and extends to 48 hours if requested or required. This is undertaken in order to ensure stability when used in a normal environment. These tests can include extremes of workload (constant I/O's), CPU and memory use, thermal load (heat), clock speed, or voltages, bus and connectivity components, with the primary stress testing software aiming to test stability by trying to force a system to fail. Our tests put a greater emphasis on robustness, availability and error handling heavy loads.

Once the tests are complete we QA and pack the system back into it's retail box. Then it's double boxed to protect the unit during shipping. You receive your QNAP NAS Ready To Plug 'N' Store. It doesn't get any easier. Buy your NAS from the QNAP EXPERTS at QNAP DIRECT.
