QNAP TS-H973AX-32G - 9 x Total Bays SAN/NAS Storage System

QNAP TS-H973AX-32G 9 x Total Bays SAN/NAS Storage System - 5 GB Flash Memory Capacity - AMD Ryzen Quad-core (4 Core) 2.20 GHz - 32 GB RAM - DDR4 SDRAM Tower - Serial ATA/600 Controller - RAID Supported - 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60, Hot Spare, JBOD RAID Levels - 3 x RJ-45 - 10 Gigabit Ethernet - QuTS hero 4.5.0
Enhance business productivity using the quad-core 9-bay QuTS hero NAS that supports U.2 NVMe SSD and 10GbE/2.5GbE connectivity

Featuring an AMD Ryzen™ V1000 series V1500B quad-core processor and 10GbE/2.5GbE connectivity, the 9-bay TS-h973AX packs a high-capacity hybrid storage infrastructure into a compact physical footprint. With five 3.5-inch SATA 6Gbps drive bays, two 2.5-inch U.2 NVMe SSD slots (Slot 1 & 2 support both U.2 NVMe and SATA SSDs ), and two 2.5-inch SATA 6Gbps SSD slots, the TS-h973AX can benefit from SSD caching to boost IOPS-intensive applications. With the ZFS-based QuTS hero operating system, the TS-h973AX ensures data integrity and supports block-level inline data deduplication and compression, near-limitless snapshots, and real-time SnapSync to satisfy mission-critical file servers, virtualization servers, collaborative video editing, and efficient data backup and recovery with business-class performance, job reliability, and lower overall cost.

  • Install high-performance U.2 NVMe PCIe Gen 3 x4 SSDs or SATA 6Gb/s SSDs in the dedicated SSD slots for cache acceleration and improved random I/O.

  • One 10GBASE-T Multi-Gig and two 2.5GbE LAN ports accelerate virtualization, intensive file access, large backup/restoration tasks, and media transfer.

  • Experience a business-class backup center, supporting backup/restore of cloud data and VMs (including Google™ Workspace, Microsoft 365®, VMware® and Hyper-V).

  • Host multiple virtual machines and containers to run a wide range of applications on the TS-h973AX.

  • Cloud storage gateways realize hybrid cloud applications by working with the cache space reserved on NAS to ensure low-latency data access to the cloud.

  • Flexibly scale your total storage capacity to match your business growth by connecting USB expansion enclosures (TR series JBOD).

Absolute performance with AMD Ryzen™ and up to 32 GB RAM
Powered by an AMD Ryzen™ Embedded V1000 series V1500B 4-core/8-thread, 2.2 GHz processor with up to 32GB DDR4 RAM, the TS-h973AX delivers aggressive yet power-smart performance for compute-demanding applications. AES-NI encryption support boosts encryption performance while also maintaining the security of your NAS data. SSDs can be flexibly installed for cache acceleration to maximize network and storage performance for data-intensive applications.
Dual U.2 NVMe PCIe Gen 3 x4 SSD slots for optimal I/O and low latency
The TS-h973AX has four 2.5-inch SSD slots - with slots 1 & 2 supporting both high-performance U.2 NVMe PCIe Gen 3 x4 SSDs or economical SATA 6Gb/s SSDs. For tackling latency-sensitive applications, you can take advantage of U.2 NVMe PCIe Gen 3 x4 SSDs that supply up to 32Gb/s bandwidth to attain optimized performance and efficiency. You can also use QNAP's QDA-UMP adapter to replace U.2 NVMe SSDs with cost-efficient M.2 NVMe Gen 3 x4 SSDs to maintain high-level performance while saving more costs.
Coupled with QNAP's SSD-aware features, the TS-h973AX maximizes performance with high cost-effectiveness.

SSD cache acceleration

Increases IOPS performance and reduces latency for storage volumes - perfect for IOPS-demanding applications including virtualization and databases.

Write Coalescing

Transforms all random writes to sequential writes along with reduced I/O, effectively increasing SSD write performance.
