QNAP TS-639 Pro Turbo NAS Part 2


This morning I received my 2 Western Digital VelociRaptor Enterprise disks to put into my QNAP TS-639 Pro Turbo NAS. The disk is described as the world’s fastest SATA disk! Google it and read the reviews, especially at Tomshardware.com. IOPS wise, the disks are significantly faster than any other SATA disk. BTW to calculate disk IOPS, read my other post on that subject.

My QNAP TS-639 Pro Turbo NAS doesn’t allow you to configure anything before at least one disk is installed, that’s a shame!Maybe because it was still running firmware revision 2.x. Anyway, once I popped in the disks, I went through the configuration wizard and 3 minutes later tadaaaam my QNAP TS-639 Pro Turbo NAS is running 2 WD VelociRaptor in RAID0 for maximum performances…

In the following post, I will talk about how to configure iSCSI, how work with jumbo frame, how to set the NIC’s for load balancing and failover.

Stay tuned!
