Tiered Storage Configuration for a QuTS hero NAS
Basic requirements for setup are similar to QTS. Follow these steps to acquire optimal storage efficiency and performance for QuTS hero.

Step 1: System Drive & Default Shared Folders
The first Storage Pool you create is where the system drive, default shared folders, and apps are stored. In this step, it is recommended to create an SSD RAID with at least two SSDs to attain optimal system performance and efficient app metadata management. (With an all-HDD configuration, the first Storage Pool is also where the system drive and default shared folders are stored.)

Step 2: Read/Write Cache
Use more SSDs for read cache or ZIL. You can also install QM2 expansion cards to add M.2 SSDs for expanding cache space.

Step 3: Data Storage
Allocate HDDs/SSDs to create a RAID for storing files and application data. If needed, you can configure an all-flash configuration for optimal performance.
Inline Data Deduplication, Compression, and Compaction Drives Big Data Storage Efficiency
QuTS hero supports advanced block-based data reduction technologies, including inline data deduplication, compression, and compaction to reduce file sizes, conserve storage capacity, and optimize performance. For example, if 20 virtual machines on a NAS are replicated using the same template, then storage space requirements for all 20 virtual machines can be reduced by up to 95%. Whether acting as primary or backup storage, the TS-h2483XU-RP optimizes storage utilization to provide a reliable storage cornerstone in the Big Data era.
Real-Time SnapSync Ensures Minimal RPO with Real-Time Disaster Recovery
Real-time SnapSync ensures that both the primary and secondary NAS maintain identical data. When data is written to the source, it is immediately written to the destination. If the primary NAS goes offline, IT staff can simply adjust the privilege settings of the secondary NAS to ensure continuous operations. SnapSync provides the strongest support for nonstop business operations and helps users to reduce the risk of data loss.

The TS-h2483XU-RP also supports snapshots and remote backup to help organizations accomplish routine backup tasks cost-effectively and efficiently.

Snapshots Multiple Backup Protection
Attain peace of mind with near-limitless, instant snapshots. Copy-on-write technology makes snapshot creation almost instantaneous without affecting ongoing data writing. Snapshot Replica replicates snapshot files to the backup NAS, simplifying data protection with version control.

HBS Simplifies 3-2-1 Backup Plans
HBS centralizes backup, restoration, and synchronization for easily transferring data in the TS-h2483XU-RP to another QNAP NAS, remote server, or cloud storage space. HBS supports QuDedup technology that eliminates redundant data at the source and makes multi-version backup faster.

Note: SnapSync will be available from QuTS hero h4.5.2.
