Dual 10GbE connectivity optimizes high-speed data transfer and VMware virtualization with iSER
The TS-2483XU-RP provides two 10GbE SFP+ ports that use the SmartNIC controller. They support the iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER) protocol, allowing data to bypass general network drivers, the socket layer, and to directly enter memory buffers of the ESXi server and storage to offload CPU workloads. When both the VMware® server and the TS-2483XU-RP support iSER, it can provide up to 60% increased random read/write performance and 50% decreased latency, providing an essential tool to optimize demanding virtualization applications.
Recommended usage of PCIe slots
The TS-2483XU-RP provides multiple PCIe slots. To ensure that the SATA drives have sufficient bandwidth, it is recommended to only use low-end expansion cards, (such as a 1GbE NIC, USB 3.2 Gen 1 card, or Wi-Fi adapter) with the PCIe Gen2 slot (Slot 1, 3, 5) as this slot is connected to the PCH. For high-end expansion cards (including 10GbE/40GbE NICs, SAS cards, Mustang-200 acceleration card, and graphics cards), it is recommended to use PCIe Gen3 slots (Slot 2, 4) as these slots are connected to the CPU.
Abundant I/O capability with PCIe expansion
The TS-2483XU-RP features 5 PCIe slots that allow for the usage of various expansion cards to expand application potential.
Note: 1U, 2U rackmount models use low-profile graphics cards; 3U, 4U rackmount models use high-profile graphics cards.
40GbE/ 25GbE/ 10GbE network cards
Enable lightning-fast throughput for bandwidth-demanding tasks such as virtualization, massive data transmission, and fast backup/restoration.
QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE cards
Add M.2 SSD caching or 10GbE (10GBASE-T) connectivity to the NAS for optimized performance and bandwidth.
SAS expansion cards
Designed for connecting the TS-2483XU-RP to REXP expansion units to increase storage capacity by adding up to 128 SAS/SATA drives.
Empower GPU-accelerated computing with graphics cards
Graphics cards are optimized for graphical calculations and transformations. The TS-2483XU-RP provides PCIe slots for installing an AMD Radeon™ or NVIDIA® graphics card to boost data-intensive AI machine learning, while also providing benefits for imaging processing and virtual machine performance (via GPU passthrough).
1. 3U/4U models support high-profile graphics cards that require external power; 1U/2U models support low-profile graphics cards that do not require additional external power (For example, the NVIDIA GT1030).
2. GPU support for QTS only applies to NVIDIA graphics cards. GPU Passthrough for VM is supported by AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards.
3. When Virtualization Station uses graphics cards, the NAS will temporarily stop hardware transcoding acceleration for QTS (and vice versa).
4. Always consult the Compatibility List for supported NAS and graphics cards before purchasing a graphics card for the NAS.
