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 Data reduction improves storage efficiency and performance Multi-level cache technology
QuTS hero’s self-healing ensures data integrity and reliability. Write Once, Read Many (WORM) is also supported. Inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction reduce file size to conserve storage capacity and optimize performance. 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 QSAL (QNAP SSD Antiwear Leveling) enhances data protection App Center ecosystem extends NAS functionality
Multiple RAID levels allow flexible capacity utilization. RAID Triple Parity and Triple Mirror deliver higher levels of data protection. RAID-level SSD lifespan is automatically and regularly detected to prevent simultaneous SSD failure, improving your data protection and system reliability. Apps for backup/sync, virtual machines/containers, content management, productivity, and more features can be used to expand the application potential of the TNS-h1083X.

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

The first Storage Pool you create is where the system drive, default shared folders, and apps are stored. In this step, it is recommended to create an SSD RAID with at least two SSDs to attain optimal system performance and efficient app metadata management. (With an all-HDD configuration, the first Storage Pool is also where the system drive and default shared folders are stored.)

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.

Build a highly-efficient backup center with inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction

QuTS hero supports advanced data reduction technologies (including inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction) to reduce file sizes, conserve storage capacity, and optimize performance. By deploying a GM-1000 system, you can configure one TNS-h1083X as primary storage and the other TNS-h1083X as backup storage, or offload services between the two NAS nodes and set cross backup. The TNS-h1083X also comes with snapshot protection, real-time SnapSync, and HBS remote backup services to assist organizations in accomplishing daily backup tasks with greater efficiency and cost-effectiveness.


Snapshots multiply backup protection HBS simplifies 3-2-1 backup plans
Near-limitless, instant snapshots bring peace of mind. Snapshot Replica simplifies data protection, while real-time SnapSync enables strict data synchronization for real-time disaster recovery.
Note: SnapSync will be available from QuTS hero h4.5.2.
HBS centralizes backup, restoration, and synchronization for easily transferring data in the TNS-h1083X 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.

Perfect backup storage paired with dual-controller Enterprise ZFS NAS

QNAP’s QuTS hero and QES operating systems use ZFS. Therefore, the TNS-h1083X is the perfect backup storage for the dual-controller Enterprise ZFS NAS using real-time SnapSync. If the Enterprise ZFS NAS unexpectedly stops, the TNS-h1083X (with synchronized, identical data) can immediately take over operations and services to prevent costly downtime.

Note: Enterprise ZFS NAS requires QES 2.1 (or later).


Cloud Storage Gateway provides low latency access to cloud-based data

The TNS-h1083X perfectly integrates NAS with mainstream cloud services. By deploying cloud storage gateways and enabling local caching on the TNS-h1083X using M.2 (NVMe Gen 3 x2) and U.2 (NVMe Gen 3 x4 / SATA 6Gb/s) SSD slots (M.2 and U.2 SSDs are purchased separately), organizations can seamlessly use the cloud for storage, backup, and data recovery with low-latency access, realizing cost-effective, flexible and secure hybrid cloud applications.


HybridMount File-Based Cloud Gateway

Flexibly expand your storage capacity by connecting to cloud storage. You can leverage QuTS hero apps to manage/edit cloud-based files or monitor 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.

High-performance 10GbE and 2.5GbE networking

The TNS-h1083X comes with two 10GbE SFP+ and two 2.5GbE RJ45 ports that support Port Trunking and failover, satisfying bandwidth-demanding applications including virtualization, large files transferring, high-speed backup/restoration, and any real-time application. QNAP also offers numerous options of managed and unmanaged 10GbE/2.5GbE switches featuring 10GbE SFP+/RJ45 combo ports or Multi-Gigabit NBASE-T™ connections, assisting organizations in implementing high-speed, secure and scalable network environments without going over budget.


Abundant I/O capability with PCIe expansion

The TNS-h1083X features two PCIe Gen 3 slots that allow for various expansion cards for expanding application potential.

10GbE/25GbE/40GbE network cards

Enable lightning-fast throughput for bandwidth-hungry tasks (such as virtualization, massive data transmission, and fast backup/restoration).

QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE cards

Add M.2 SSD caching or 10GbE (10GBASE-T) connectivity for optimized performance and bandwidth.

QXP expansion cards

Connect the TNS-h1083X to TL SATA JBOD enclosures by adding multi-lane SATA 6Gb/s transfer for high-performance storage expansion.

SAS expansion cards

Connect the TNS-h1083X to REXP expansion units and support petabytes of storage capacity by adding up to 128 SAS/SATA drives.

All-in-one solution for hosting virtual machines and containers

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 TNS-h1083X without needing additional physical servers.

Container Station

Experience LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, and download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry®, import or export containers, and create multiple microservices.

High-performance, reliable storage solution for virtualization

  • Supports block-based iSCSI LUN as a high-performance, reliable, and affordable storage solution for VMware®, Citrix®, Microsoft® Hyper-V®, and Windows Server® 2019 virtualization environments.
  • Supports VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supports QNAP vSphere Client plug-in with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications.

Build an affordable Fibre Channel SAN environment

Common Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks (SAN) devices are often costly. By installing a QNAP dual-port 16Gb/32Gb Fibre Channel expansion cards or compatible FC card from Marvell® or ATTO® in the TNS-h1083X, you have more budget-friendly options to add a NAS to a SAN environment. You can set a Fibre Channel Target using the iSCSI & Fibre Channel app. Moreover, the LUN Masking and Port Binding features provide an additional layer of data security.
