The TS-EC1680U R2 16-Bay Unified NAS Enclosure from QNAP quickly takes care of your enterprise data storage needs by featuring two 10GbE SFP+ ports and 16 bays, which can each house a 2.5" or 3.5" SATA III hard drive or SSD. This enclosure sports a dual-core 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3-4150 processor and 4GB of DDR3 ECC memory to run iSCSI and virtualization applications as well as the QTS operating system. You can configure your drives in a RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, or 10 mode to enhance the drive's reads and writes, while preserving data in the event a drive fails. To increase I/O throughputs, QNAP has outfitted this enclosure with two mSATA slots so you can install flash modules for caching data. Additionally, four Gigabit Ethernet ports are on board to serve many simultaneous connections.

Once drives are installed, the TS-EC1680U R2 can reach a throughput of up to 3,500+ MB/s and 390,000+ IOPS. Powering and cooling these features are accomplished by two redundant 650W PSUs and four 80mm fans. Using the four USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other external drives. For safeguarding your data, this enclosure encrypts your data with FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption. Aside from data protection, it supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX networks. In addition, you can meet future data needs by cascading optional QNAP RAID expansion enclosures to the TS-EC1680U R2 NAS enclosure.

QTS Operating System
QTS's intuitive user interface helps system operations of the TS-EC1680U R2 to be smooth and handy. Its intelligent desktop allows you to find the desired functions quickly, create desktop or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently
Qsirch
Quickly and easily find documents, photos, videos, and music with Qsirch, QNAP's search application lets you find what you need in real-time. Simply type in as much as you know about what you are trying to find, including bits of the file name or even words/phrases in the document, and Qsirch will display a list of matches, complete with thumbnails, as you type. Qsirch even remembers your search history so you can quickly navigate to files you've previously searched for
Performance
The TS-EC1680U R2 supports 6 Gb/s hard drives driving over 3,500 MB/s throughput and 390,000 IOPS. Featuring a 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3-4150 dual-core processor and 4GB of DDR3 ECC RAM, this enclosure enhances the efficiency of CPU-consuming tasks and serves more concurrent tasks at the same time
Internal Cache Port for IO Acceleration
The TS-EC1680U R2 supports two on-board mSATA internal cache ports and up to 4 SSDs for caching. By installing optional mSATA flash modules, the IOPS performance of storage volumes can be increased. It is well suited for improving the overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as those for database and virtualization. The internal cache port design reserves the space of hard drive tray for more storage capacity
Removable Motherboard Drawer
With the TS-EC1680U R2's removable motherboard drawer, IT administrators have easier access in upgrading and installing components such as RAM and internal cache. The motherboard itself can be removed and replaced without needing to remove the heavy TS-EC1680U R2 from the rack cabinet, making it especially useful in maintaining the TS-EC1680U R2 in data centers with multiple rack cabinets. However, please note that power-off is necessary before removing the motherboard drawer. It is not hot-pluggable
Connectivity
The TS-EC1680U R2 offers four built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports and features two 10GbE SFP+ ports that deliver a 10 Gigabit high-speed network. The TS-EC1680U R2 provides increased data throughput when compared to a standard Gigabit adapter. Coupled with the support for large storage capacity, it is well suited for data centers to store large amounts of data and for editing large-sized videos on-the-fly without transferring the videos between the TS-EC1680U R2 and desktop computers
Capacity Expansion
The TS-EC1680U R2 supports online capacity expansion by cascading multiple QNAP RAID expansion enclosures to meet the needs of growing business data. With the QNAP scale-up solution, raw storage capacity can be gradually expanded to 864TB. It is especially useful for large data applications, such as video surveillance, data archiving, TV broadcast storage, and more
QNAP Flexible Volume
QNAP flexible volume provides a more secure and flexible way to store the NAS data. This next generation volume offers features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID group protection, thin provisioned volume with space reclaim, block-level iSCSI LUN, and online capacity expansion. The QTS Storage Manager presents tools and options for managing system storage which simplifies the process of NAS capacity expansion and QNAP RAID expansion enclosure management
Cross-Platform File Sharing, Centralized Data Storage
The TS-EC1680U R2 supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX networks.
