Qtier™ technology and SSD caching enable 24/7 optimized storage efficiency.
Scalable storage supporting virtualization, containerized apps, centralized storage, backup, sharing, and disaster recovery.
RAID 50/60 is recommended for NAS with over 6 disks to strike a balance between capacity, protection, and performance.
Absolute performance with AMD Ryzen™ and up to 64GB RAM
Powered by a high-performance AMD Ryzen™ 7 1700 or AMD Ryzen™ 5 1600 processor with AES-NI encryption acceleration and up to 64GB DDR4 RAM, the TS-1277 delivers aggressive yet power-smart performance to meet your multitasking demands and is capable of running up to 16 virtual machines simultaneously*. For resource-demanding business applications such as VDI, R&D, private cloud, and server virtualization, the TS-1277 with gold-standard performance is your ideal choice.
Top-class hardware engineering
The feature-packed hardware of the TS-1277 bolsters overall system performance. Coupled with the flexible and expandable architecture, the TS-1277 fulfills diversified application needs.
Extend NAS functionality with PCIe slots
The TS-1277 features three PCIe slots (1 x PCIe 3.0 x8, 1 x PCIe 3.0 x4, 1 x PCIe 2.0 x4) that allow for installing 10GbE/40GbE network cards, QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE PCIe cards, or compatible wireless network cards for greater application potential.
10GbE/ 40GbE adapters
Install 10GbE/40GbE adapters to support lightning-fast throughput for bandwidth-demanding tasks such as virtualization and fast backup/restoration for an ever-growing amount of data.
QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE cards
Install QNAP's innovative QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE card to add M.2 SSD caching or 10GbE (10GBASE-T) connectivity to the NAS to enjoy optimal performance.
Wireless network cards
Install a compatible wireless network card to work with WirelessAP Station to transform the NAS into a convenient wireless base station, allowing network resources of the NAS to be shared with multiple devices.
Fuel GPU-accelerated computing with a 550W power supply
Graphics cards are optimized for graphical calculations and transformations, but require significantly more power compared to other hardware. The TS-1277 offers PCIe slots to support AMD Radeon™ or NVIDIA® graphics cards and a 550 watt power supply that is capable of powering a graphics card for boosting imaging processing in QTS and performance of virtual machines via GPU passthrough. When enjoying videos with the TS-1277, you can use the remote control (RM-IR004, optional purchase) that supports QButton for a more convenient control of your multimedia experience.
1. The 550 watt power supply unit provides a 8-pin (6+2) power connector and a 6-pin power connector for a graphics card.
2. When Virtualization Station uses graphics cards, the NAS will temporarily stop hardware transcoding acceleration for QTS (and vice versa).
3. GPU support for QTS only applies to NVIDIA graphics cards. GPU Passthrough for VM is supported by AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards.
4. TS-1277 supports graphics cards with dimensions up to 266 x 112 x 45 mm.
5. Consult the Compatibility List for information on supported NAS and graphics cards.
SSD caching and auto tiering enable 24/7 optimized storage efficiency
The TS-1277 provides four 2.5-inch SSD slots dedicated for caching to increase IOPS performance, and supports optional M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSDs. Using an SSD cache boosts overall system performance, and is perfect for improving the overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as virtualization. Qtier™ Technology empowers the TS-1277 with auto tiering that further helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across M.2 SSD, SSD, high-capacity SATA drives, and the optional PCIe NVMe SSD with around-the-clock acceleration. The new Qtier™ 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSD.
Note: M.2 SSD sold separately. M.2 SSD operations can easily generate excessive heat, and it is recommended to install a heatsink (from QNAP or a third-party provider) on M.2 SSD.
Performance & reliability. Your wise choice.
The TS-1277 supports advanced business features to provide maximized efficiency, performance, and to ensure round-the-clock services.
When using a NAS with over 6 disk bays, RAID 50/60 not only provides greater data protection and random write performance than a single RAID 5/6, but also maximizes usable storage compared to RAID 10.
iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER) protocol working with a compatible 10GbE/40GbE SFP+ NIC helps boost data transfer performance of the TS-1277 as VMware® ESXi storage, providing an essential tool to optimize demanding virtualization applications.
Designed for IT administrators, QRM+ provides a single-point solution to discover, map, monitor and manage all Windows®, Linux® and IPMI devices in your network, and facilitates device discovery with a graphical topology diagram.
Block-based iSCSI LUN: Ideal choice for virtualization storage
The TS-1277 supports block-based iSCSI LUN that provides a more reliable and isolated environment than file-based LUN. Supporting VMware®, Citrix®, Microsoft® Hyper-V® and Windows Server® 2012 R2, the TS-1277 provides a high-performance, reliable and affordable storage solution for virtualization environments, while also supporting VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supporting QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications.
