Add dual M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe 2.0 x2 SSDs and a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port to select QNAP NAS devices with the QM2 M.2 2280 PCIe SSD & 10GbE Expansion Card from QNAP. By combining M.2 SSD storage and 10GbE connectivity into one solution, the QM2 helps improve overall NAS performance, while also providing an affordable upgrade path for adopting 10GbE networks.
The QM2 operates using a PCIe 2.0 x4 host controller. M.2 SSDs are not included, but once installed, can be used to form a caching pool to boost performance, or create an auto-tiering volume to optimize storage efficiency with Qtier technology. In addition to providing 10GbE network connectivity, the RJ45 port is backward compatible with 5GbE, 2.5GbE, 1GbE, and 100MbE networks. M.2 SSD thermal sensors allow real-time temperature monitoring, and a quiet cooling module, comprised of a heatsink and a smart fan, helps minimize overheating risks and sustain performance. There are also LED indicators for monitoring the status of each M.2 drive.
