QNAP TS-1277 overview

  • 1Description

Powered by a 3.0 GHz AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Eight-Core processor, the TS-1277 12-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP is a high-end desktop business NAS for improved video and virtual machine performance. When combined with its integrated hardware and multitasking software, the TS-1277 is ready to tackle resource-demanding applications and tasks, including virtualization and 4K processing.

Aside from its AMD Ryzen 7 1700 processor, this NAS is driven by 16GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM in a 2 x 8GB configuration, and network connectivity is achieved using four Gigabit Ethernet ports that support service binding, port trunking, and MPIO configurations. A variety of RAID modes are supported, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, 60, Hot Spare, and Global Hot Spare, each of which offers data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both. For those who do not need a RAID, JBOD and Single modes are also supported.

This 12-bay enclosure has the ability to natively house both 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s hard drives for data storage, as well as 2.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s SSD drives for caching, thanks to eight 3.5"/2.5" drive bays and four 2.5" drive bays. There are also two M.2 SATA III SSD slots for caching or caching pools to help accelerate performance, with support for M.2 2240, 2260, 2280, and 22110 form factors.

PCIe expansion affords the option to expand this NAS with 10GbE or 40GbE network adapters, PCIe NVMe SSDs, graphics cards, 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 cards, and wireless network cards. The TS-1277 is equipped with one PCIe 3.0 x8 slot, one PCIe 3.0 x4 slot, and one PCIe 2.0 x4 slot. When using dual 10GbE cards, sequential read speeds can reach as high as 2346 MB/s and sequential write speeds max out around 1859 MB/s. When running encrypted sequential transfers, read speeds max out around 2323 MB/s, while write speeds reach 1725 MB/s.

Using the one USB 3.1 Type-C port, one USB 3.1 Type-A port, and six USB 3.0 Type-A ports, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other QNAP devices, as well as other external drives and displays, thanks to HDMI support via PCIe expansion. The TS-1277 is also validated with FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, helping to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.

The TS-1277 12-Bay NAS Enclosure operates using a 550W power supply that runs on 100-240 VAC @ 50/60 Hz. It includes two Ethernet cables, a power cord, flat head screws for 2.5" drives, flat head screws for M.2 SSDs, and two M.2 cooling modules. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.

QTS - NAS Operating System
With modularized multiple applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more, making your NAS experience easier, efficient, and more flexible. Qboost provides a NAS optimization tool that helps accelerate applications, free up system resources, and schedule applications. The built-in App Center, with hundreds of install-on-demand apps, realizes far more extensive NAS functionality.
Optimized Collaboration with Seamless File Sharing and Sync
The TS-1277 centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP, and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX networks. Coupled with Qsync (a utility that turns a QNAP NAS into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization), any file uploaded to the TS-1277 will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops, or mobile devices. You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. Files can be centrally managed using File Station, including files from mobile devices and optical disc drives. File Station also allows you to mount a remote NAS and transfer files between your NAS and public cloud services for greater convenience.
Complete Backup Planning
The TS-1277 provides a reliable, flexible backup & disaster recovery solution to assist organizations in routine backup jobs with cost-efficiency and high productivity.

Windows & Mac Backup
Use the license-free QNAP NetBak Replicator utility to back up/restore Windows files, alongside Time Machine support for Mac devices. It is easy, fast, and convenient.

Hybrid Backup Sync
Consolidates backup, restoration, and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, and CIFS/SMB) for transferring data to local, remote, and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan.

Snapshots for Volume & LUN
Snapshot is essential for NAS data protection, and its block-level feature makes it a dependable method for protecting data in the face of the growing threat of ransomware. The TS-1277 supports up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN, and maximum 1024 snapshots per NAS.

VM Backup
With high-performance, potentially huge storage capacities, integrated virtualization solutions, and support for snapshots that record the state of the system at any time, the TS-1277 is well-suited for backing up virtual machines.
4K Live Streaming on a Private Cloud
Live-stream broadcasts enable real-time audience interaction and increase engagement, providing great potential for versatile business and lifestyle applications. The TS-1277 supports DJ2 Live, an exclusive live broadcasting platform based on a private cloud that supports up to 4K video live-stream broadcasts, providing a complete solution for integrating live broadcasting, storage, and sharing. You can capture live videos from computers, mobile devices, or webcams to stream to DJ2 Live with high-speed intranet transmission, and store all the videos on the private, secure, high-capacity TS-1277. It also supports streaming to video services such as YouTube and Facebook for universal live broadcasting.
Comprehensive Surveillance Solution for 24/7 Monitoring
The TS-1277 provides an intelligent video management system that assists you in managing real-time monitoring, video & audio recording and playback with a wide range of customizable settings to safeguard your physical environment. You can use the Vmobile mobile app to manage the monitored channels, or install the Vcam mobile app to turn your device into a network camera to instantly record to your NAS. The TS-1277 also supports QVR Pro (Beta) that integrates QNAP's professional QVR system into the QTS operating system. You can establish a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the NAS and leverage the advantages of scalability and storage manageability from QTS.
Flexible Storage Expansion
You need an easy solution to increase storage capacity when running out of space. QNAP provides several ways to expand your NAS storage as needed to accommodate data and business growth.

VJBOD Use VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) to expand your storage capacity by using the unused storage of other QNAP NAS devices. Up to eight QNAP NAS can be mounted as local disks on the TS-1277.

Upgrade RAID Capacity
Hot swap lower capacity drives with larger capacity drives so that your QNAP NAS can grow with your business.
