Unified storage with simple management

TrioNAS consolidates NAS and IP-based iSCSI SAN in one box. Unified storage can help consolidate your IT infrastructure and reduce hardware expenses. You don’t need multiple file servers for SMB, NFS, AFP, FTP, and WebDAV. TrioNAS supports all these protocols in one box including iSCSI. TrioNAS will be your common storage pool that is accessible at either file or block level over existing IP networks. It’s the most cost-effective and efficient storage solution.
Controller-based cableless design

No hassle for cables and no reduction in thermal efficiency. Neat and cable-less backplane design gives TrioNAS LX the lower latency and the best heat dissipation capability. And it is super easy for hardware maintenance.
High-speed host interfaces

With versatile host interfaces (10GbE iSCSI, 16Gb Fibre Channel) to choose from, U300 is the genuine multi-protocol unified network attached storage. Both iSCSI and Fibre Channel are supported at the same time in one enclosure. U300 can easily fit into enterprise IT environment and consolidate your file servers and storage area network (SAN) applications.
ZFS and RAID protection

TrioNAS LX adopts ZFS file system, which is a transactional, copy-on-write, crash-free file system with 128-bit huge addressing space. ZFS can detect silent data corruption and has self-healing capability and guarantees end-to-end data integrity. There are abundant RAID levels to choose from to meet application requirements such as redundancy and performance.
Q-Turbo offload engines

Q-turbo offload engine includes both SOE (Samba Offload Engine) and ZVIOS (ZFS Volume IO Scheduler) modules, two Qsan innovated in-house IO acceleration technologies. SOE can greatly improves SMB (Small Message Block) protocol performance. ZVIOS can accelerate block IO such as iSCSI protocol performance.
Optimized throughput

Powered by Intel® Xeon® E3 (Haswell microarchitecture) processor, U300 can deliver up to 1690MB/s throughput for read access and 1270MB/s throughput for write access. Random IOPS can be further enhanced by using SSD caching function for up to 20 times improvement.  U300 can help you enable a number of applications that use SMB and NFS protocols.

* Test model : U300-P20
SSD caching support

TrioNAS LX supports using high performance SSD drives as fast storage tiering. SSD caching can greatly improve random IO performance. You can combine SSD drives and SATA drives as a hybrid storage pool and have a net performance result of a pure SAS storage pool.
Hybrid storage for flexibility and performance

All Qsan NAS product lines can leverage the strengths of SSD drives to become a so-called Hybrid Storage. With SSD caching function, SSD drives act as a fast tier between traditional hard drives and memory to speed up random IO performance.
3x times storage efficiency

Thin provisioning allows just-in-time capacity and allocates storage space that does not exist. You can delay the hard drive purchase until it is absolutely necessary.

Inline, block-based deduplication helps you remove data redundancy at block level. It's a must-have feature for file backup, data archive, VDI and mail databese applications. It's very easy to use and can be switched on/off at any time without impacting data access. It's a practical function only found in enterprise storage.

Compression can help save even more storage space. It's lossless and there is no data loss at all. All these great features come in totally FREE and can help boost your storage efficiency by 3x times!
File-level snapshot

File-level snapshot helps IT administrator to retrieve a file as easy as browsing through a directory when things like virus attack and accidental deletion or modification happens. You can rollback the snapshot to a certain point in time in the past or clone the snapshot to become an independent folder.
Block-level snapshot

TrioNAS LX supports snapshot for block-level storage such as LUN. Using copy-on-write technology, differential data are recorded between two given points in time. You can rollback the snapshot to a certain point in time in the past or clone the snapshot to become an independent LUN.
Remote replication for disaster recovery

TrioNAS LX supports both Rsync and block-level snapshot-based replication function. Both of them are asynchronous. Remote replication task can be created for folders and LUNs. Only differential data at block level will be replicated to achieve maximum efficiency. Replication function is provided by the storage array. No host server resources will be involed.

When disaster strikes at site A, you can quickly switch to storage array at site B to make sure business continuity and data security.
McAfee anti-virus to safeguard your files

U300 integrates McAfee's latest API to support virus scanning function.
However, TrioNAS LX U400Q and U600Q adopts ICAP protocol to support virus scanning service. It depends on the anti-virus server in the network to provide scanning service.
