Intel Xeon E processor, extraordinary performance
The TS-1683XU-RP features an Intel Xeon E-2124 quad-core 3.3 GHz processor (burst up to 4.3 GHz), 16 GB DDR4 ECC memory (upgradable to 64 GB), and a redundant power supply, delivering server-grade performance and dependable reliability for rugged enterprise IT environments as a cost-efficient NAS solution. Besides 4 Gigabit RJ45 LAN ports, the TS-1683XU-RP comes with two 10GbE SFP+ SmartNIC LAN ports to provide a significant performance boost.
ECC memory forestalls data corruption to assure reliability
The Intel Xeon E based TS-1683XU-RP uses ECC memory that can detect and correct single-bit memory errors as they occur to prevent downtime and data loss, which is essential for always-on, mission-critical, server-grade applications. The TS-1683XU-RP supports dual-channel DDR4 memory in four Long-DIMM slots. When using paired memory modules, the TS-1683XU-RP can leverage the power of dual-channel architecture to boost performance. You also customize the memory configuration (supports up to 64 GB RAM) of the TS-1683XU-RP for greater performance to tackle dynamically-changing workloads such as virtualization.
Server-grade hardware: Sturdy and expandable
The TS-1683XU-RP features outstanding hardware and expandable architecture, enabling optimum performance and flexibility to fulfill business needs in performance and application diversification.
Dual 10GbE connectivity optimizes high-speed data transfer and VMware virtualization with iSER
The TS-1683XU-RP provides two 10GbE SFP+ ports that use the Mellanox ConnectX-4 Lx SmartNIC controller. They support the iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER) protocol, allowing data to bypass general network drivers, the socket layer, and to directly enter memory buffers of the ESXi server and storage to offload CPU workloads. When both the VMware server and the TS-1683XU-RP support iSER, it can provide up to 60% increased random read/write performance and 50% decreased latency, providing an essential tool to optimize demanding virtualization applications.
Recommended usage of PCIe slots
The TS-1683XU-RP provides multiple PCIe slots. To ensure that the SATA drives have sufficient bandwidth, it is recommended to only use low-end expansion cards, (such as a 1GbE NIC, USB 3.0 card, or Wi-Fi adapter) with the PCIe Gen2 slot (Slot 1) as this slot is connected to the PCH. For high-end expansion cards (including 10GbE/40GbE NICs, SAS cards, Mustang-200 acceleration card, and graphics cards), it is recommended to use PCIe Gen3 slots (Slot 2, 3, 4) as these slots are connected to the CPU.
Abundant I/O capability with PCIe expansion
The TS-1683XU-RP features 4 PCIe slots that allow for the usage of various expansion cards to expand application potential.
SSD caching and auto tiering enable 24/7 optimized storage efficiency
By enabling Qtier™ auto-tiering on the TS-1683XU-RP, organizations can just buy the amount of SSDs needed, and attain the highest value/performance and optimal storage efficiency for data storage and sharing.
Improve random data access speeds with an SSD cache
SSD caches accelerate IOPS performance and reduce latency for storage volumes. They are perfect for IOPS-demanding applications (including databases and virtualization) and can significantly improve overall workflows. The TS-1683XU-RP also supports write-only SSD caches to greatly boost write-intensive applications and also RAID 5/6 SSD caches for higher performance and caching space.
Maximize the value of SSDs with Qtier Technology
Qtier™ Technology empowers the TS-1683XU-RP with auto tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency by automatically moving data between 2.5-inch SSDs and high-capacity HDDs based on the data's access frequency. 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 SSDs.
