HDD + SSD hybrid-structure AMD Ryzen™ 1U rackmount NAS with up to 4 cores/4 threads Powered by AMD's powerful Ryzen™ processor, the TS-977XU delivers high system performance with up to 4 cores/4 threads and Turbo Core up to 3.4 GHz. The TS-977XU features a hybrid structure with four 3.5-inch HDD and five 2.5-inch SSD drive bays, allowing for enabling SSD caching and Qtier™ auto-tiering technology to greatly boost IOPS to meet the performance requirements of demanding applications. The TS-977XU features two SFP+ 10GbE ports and two Gigabit ports for high-speed connectivity, providing businesses and organizations with an ideal solution for quickly deploying a high-bandwidth, high-reliability storage environment. Install up to five SSDs in the 2.5-inch drive bays to enable SSD caching and Qtier for optimal system performance. Two 10GbE SFP+ ports provide higher bandwidth to empower applications like virtualization, 4K video editing and file sharing. PCIe expandability allows for installing QM2 expansion card, USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) cards, or wireless network cards. Snapshots add an extra layer of protection for disaster recovery plans. You can set a custom snapshot schedule and can use snapshots to recover data from a local or remote NAS. Scalable storage supporting virtualization, containerized apps, centralized storage, backup, sharing, and disaster recovery. Besides using QNAP storage expansion enclosures, you can also leverage QNAP VJBOD technology to use the unused storage space from other NAS. Top-class hardware engineering with high I/O expandability The hardware design of the TS-977XU provides exceptional system performance and expandability to fulfill diverse application requirements. Absolute performance with AMD Ryzen™ and up to 64GB RAM Powered by a high-performance AMD Ryzen™ 3 1200 processor with AES-NI encryption acceleration and up to 64GB DDR4 RAM, the TS-977XU delivers aggressive yet power-smart performance to meet your multitasking demands. For resource-demanding business applications such as VDI, R&D, private cloud, and server virtualization, look no further than the TS-977XU. Hybrid structure for enabling SSD and tiered storage The TS-977XU features an HDD+ SSD hybrid structure (including five 2.5-inch and four 3.5-inch drive bays), allowing you to leverage the benefits of both hard drives and SSD to provide high storage capacity and high performance. Qtier™ Technology empowers the TS-977XU with automatic tiering that continuously optimizes storage utilization across high-performance SSD and high-capacity hard drives. The new 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 SSD. Dual-channel memory delivers power-smart performance The TS-977XU supports dual-channel DDR4 memory and features four Long-DIMM slots. When using paired memory modules, the TS-977XU leverages the power of dual-channel architecture to boost performance. You can also customize the memory configuration (supports up to 64GB RAM) of the TS-977XU, making it the most ideal and cost-efficient storage solution for environments like virtualization that contain dynamically-changing workloads. Extend NAS functionality with PCIe cards The TS-977XU features a PCIe slot that allows for installing a 10GbE/40GbE network card, a QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE PCIe card, or a wireless network card to provide greater application potential.
