Storage Expansion for Enterprise ZFS NAS

The EJ1600 v2 expansion enclosure is designed for expanding the storage space on a QNAP Enterprise ZFS NAS. It connects to your NAS via high-speed mini SAS cables. Featuring a 12 Gb/s SAS interface on the chassis, the EJ1600 v2 ensures fast data passthrough from 12 Gb/s SAS-enabled Enterprise ZFS NAS servers even when using SATA or SAS storage drives. This is especially useful for virtualization applications and large data applications that require high-performance interconnection such as video surveillance, archiving large data and TV broadcast storage. To provide businesses with optimized efficiency and maximized ROI, the EJ1600 v2 connects to the Enterprise ZFS NAS via a dual path mini-SAS design to sustain continuous operations even if an external JBOD cable is disconnected.
  • Dual-channel (Dual Path) to tolerate single node failure for uninterrupted operations
  • Missing Mode protection
  • High density, high efficiency and high scalability
  • Flexible management with the QES Storage Manager
  • Ideal backup storage for the dual-controller Enterprise ZFS NAS
  • Supports 6 Gb/s SAS, backwards compatible with SATA hard drives and SSDs

Dual-Path Design

The EJ1600 v2 and your Enterprise ZFS NAS come with a dual-channel (Dual Path) design that tolerates a single node failure. Even if an external JBOD cable is disconnected due to external damage to the mini-SAS cable, it can still run normally. This is essential for intermachine data protection and capacity scalability for uninterrupted mission-critical enterprise tasks. Simply connect a EJ1600 v2 to an Enterprise ZFS NAS and power it on, your NAS will detect the hard drives in the EJ1600 v2 as newly-installed local drives. You can seamlessly expand and manage the NAS capacity by using the QES Storage Manager.

Missing Mode Protection

When a RAID expansion enclosure disconnect is detected, the Enterprise ZFS NAS blocks IO access to protect the data. The system can recover from a missing mode to its normal state with the data staying intact.

Scalable

The EJ1600 v2 fits in a 3RU rack space and supports up to 16 hard drives, which can provide a total raw capacity of 128TB. The EJ1600 v2 has two SAS wide ports (IN and OUT ports) for each controller (with 4 SAS wide ports in total with dual controllers) for host connectivity and daisy-chaining respectively. Each SAS wide port combines four SAS channels, with each supporting 12 Gb/s full duplex speeds. This solution delivers performance of up to 48 Gb/s per host connection.

QES Storage Manager

The QES Storage Manager delivers tools and options for managing the system's storage with an intuitive graphical user interface, which simplifies the process of NAS capacity expansion and EJ1600 v2 management. IT administrators can easily monitor the health of the EJ1600 v2 and the disks within it. When cascading multiple expansion enclosures in a rack, the Locate Disk and Locate Enclosure functions assist IT administrators in quick maintenance.

Backup Solution for Enterprise ZFS NAS

In addition to expanding an existing volume, IT administrators can use the EJ1600 v2 as a cost-effective external storage to perform speedy and secure backup tasks for an Enterprise ZFS NAS. The QNAP RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) or rsync service lets IT administrators back up NAS data to the EJ1600 v2 on a real-time or scheduled basis.

Flexible Drive Type and Capacity

The EJ1600 v2 offers flexibility in drive selection. IT administrators can choose enterprise-level SAS HDDs with high performance and high reliability for mission-critical applications, low-cost but high-capacity SATA HDDs for large data archiving, or high-speed SSDs for I/O-intensive operations.
