QNAP TVS-h1288x Review

The QNAP TVS-h1288x NAS is a recent addition to the company’s QuTS hero line of ZFS-based devices. ZFS allows for better data integrity and several enterprise features. The TVS-h1288x NAS uses an Intel Xeon W CPU, 14 total drive bays, and a vast array of options when it comes to expansion and connectivity.

The QNAP TVS-h1288x NAS is a recent addition to the company’s QuTS hero line of ZFS-based devices. ZFS allows for better data integrity and several enterprise features. The TVS-h1288x NAS uses an Intel Xeon W CPU, 14 total drive bays, and a vast array of options when it comes to expansion and connectivity.

QNAP TVS-h1288x

Let’s look at the hardware on this guy first. As mentioned, the NAS leverages an Intel Xeon W CPU giving it six cores and support for up to two QNAP QXP-T32P Thunderbolt 3 PCIe expansion cards for a total of four Thunderbolt 3 ports. This is great for fast file transfers from devices that support Thunderbolt 3, which is most of the newer computers.

The QNAP TVS-h1288x can support up to 128GB of ECC DDR4 RAM, though 16GB is more common. The ability to toss in extra RAM is critical for use cases that are going to leverage more of the enterprise features, like virtualization. For connectivity, the NAS has built-in 10GbE and 2.5GbE (though 5 and 25 can be added through expansion slots).

QNAP TVS-h1288x 2.5

The TVS-h1288x has lots of options when it comes to storage as well. On the front of the NAS, there are 12 hot-swappable bays (4x 2.5″ and 8x 3.5″). All the front bays are SATA. For those looking to see a bump in storage performance, there are two NVMe M.2 slots on the side (under the cover) of the NAS. These slots can be used for caching, tiering, or for a high-performance volume.

There is also a 4K HDMI output and the NAS supports hardware decoding and real-time transcoding. This means HD content on the NAS can be viewed on a high-quality screen.

The QNAP TVS-h1288x can be picked up today for about $2,800.

Design and Build

Most of the larger tower QNAP NAS units have similar builds. The QNAP TVS-h1288x is no exception. Across the bottom of the front are the eight 3.5″ bays for your high-capacity storage. The upper left has the four 2.5″ bays. The right side above the larger bays has an LCD screen for manually working on settings. The far-right has branding/model number, a power button, and a USB 3.2 Gen2 port.

QNAP TVS-h1288x rear

The rear is mainly taken up by the three fans for cooling. Below the fans are the power connection and the PSU on/off switch. The top left corner has the two PCIe Gen3 x4 expansion slots. Right next to them are the two 10GBASE-T Ethernet ports. Beneath those ports are the Audio in and out ports, followed by the rest of the USB ports, followed by four 2.5GbE ports, and the HDMI output.

QNAP TVS-h1288x cache

Lifting the cover off we can see the CPU covered by a heatsink. Next to that are the DIMM slots. And near the front are the two M.2 slots.

QNAP TS-h1283XU-RP snapshots

As mentioned, this NAS leverages the QuTS hero operating system versus the regular QTS. While the two OSs aren’t terribly different, we did go into a bit more depth when we first review a hero system here. There should only be a mild learning curve between the two.

QNAP TVS-h1288x Performance

To test the QNAP TVS-h1288X we configured it using eight WD Red 14TB HDDs in a RAID6 storage pool. The filesystem for the SMB shares had compression and deduplication off and used a 32K block size. The 4 iSCSI LUNs were configured the same way, with a 32K block size and compression and deduplication turned off. For the footprint of each test, SMB tests leverage 4 25GB files placed inside the shares, while iSCSI tests utilize 4 25GB LUNs.

Enterprise Synthetic Workload Analysis

Our enterprise shared storage and hard drive benchmark process preconditions each drive into steady-state with the same workload the device will be tested with under a heavy load of 16 threads with an outstanding queue of 16 per thread, and then tested in set intervals in multiple thread/queue depth profiles to show performance under light and heavy usage. Since hard drives reach their rated performance level very quickly, we only graph out the main sections of each test.

Preconditioning and Primary Steady-State Tests:

  • Throughput (Read+Write IOPS Aggregate)
  • Average Latency (Read+Write Latency Averaged Together)
  • Max Latency (Peak Read or Write Latency)
  • Latency Standard Deviation (Read+Write Standard Deviation Averaged Together)

Our Enterprise Synthetic Workload Analysis includes four profiles based on real-world tasks. These profiles have been developed to make it easier to compare to our past benchmarks as well as widely-published values such as max 4k read and write speed and 8k 70/30, which is commonly used for enterprise drives.

    • 100% Read or 100% Write
    • 100% 4K
  • 8K 70/30
    • 70% Read, 30% Write
    • 100% 8K
  • 8K (Sequential)
    • 100% Read or 100% Write
    • 100% 8K
  • 128K (Sequential)
    • 100% Read or 100% Write
    • 100% 128K

For our testing, we configured the QNAP TVS-h1288x  in RAID6 in both iSCSI and SMB using an HDD configuration using the following drives:

In the first of our enterprise workloads, we measured a long sample of random 4K performance with 100% write and 100% read activity. Looking at IOPS, the QNAP in iSCSI hit 2,050 IOPS in read and 1,744 IOPS in write. In SMB the NAS hit 1,965 IOPS read and 1,770 IOPS in write.

QNAP TVS-h1288x 4k hops

In 4K average latency (where lower is better), for iSCSI, we saw 124.9ms in read and 146.8ms in write. SMB configuration gave us 130.3ms in read and 144.5ms in write.

Moving to 4K max latency, in the iSCSI configuration, the NAS hit 2,146ms in read and 1,568ms in write. SMB did much better with 832ms in read and 879ms in write.

For our last 4K test, we looked at standard deviation. iSCSI was once again a bit higher with 141.5ms read and 140.1ms write while SMB came in at 56.8ms read and 80.4ms write.

Our next benchmark measures 100% 8K sequential throughput with a 16T16Q load in 100% read and 100% write operations. Here, the QNAP TVS-h1288x in iSCSI hit 138,245 IOPS read and 146,766 IOPS write. Configured in SMB it had 68,781 IOPS read and 127,370 IOPS write.

QNAP TVS-h1288x 8k

Compared to the fixed 16 thread, 16 queue max workload we performed in the 100% 4K write test, our mixed workload profiles scale the performance across a wide range of thread/queue combinations. In these tests, we span workload intensity from 2 thread/2 queue up to 16 thread/16 queue. With throughput, we saw iSCSI slightly higher with a range of 418 IOPS to 2,199 IOPS. For SMB we saw a range of 384 IOPS to 2,060 IOPS.

Looking at average latency performance figures we saw a range of 9.5ms to 116.3ms for iSCSI and 10.4ms to 124.1ms for SMB.

For maximum latency, we saw a range of 227ms to 957ms in iSCSI and 267ms to 596ms in SMB.

Looking at standard deviation, the NAS had ranges of 5.9ms to 106.7ms in iSCSI and 7.1ms to 36.9ms in SMB.

The last Enterprise Synthetic Workload benchmark is our 128K test, which is a large-block sequential test that shows the highest sequential transfer speed for a device. In this workload scenario, the iSCSI config gave us 1.15GB/s read and 1.38GB/s write while SMB was able to hit 1.15GB/s read and 1.73GB/s write.

QNAP TVS-h1288x 128k

Conclusion

The QNAP TVS-h1288x is a tower NAS with 12 bays on the front for plenty of storage. The little “h” indicates that this is a QuTS hero version of the NAS, meaning that it leverages ZFS and the enterprise features that come with ZFS. The NAS uses an Intel Xeon W processor and can support up to 128GB of DDR4 RAM and 10GbE connectivity for optimum performance. The NAS has a creative professional bent with support for Thunderbolt 3 ports and a 4K HDMI output.

To gauge its performance, we configured the NAS with HDDs (WD Red 14TB drives) and tested with both iSCSI and SMB. In 4K read, we saw 2,050 IOPS read and 1,744 IOPS write in iSCSI and 1,965 IOPS read and 1,770 IOPS write with SMB. 4K average latency gave us 124.9ms read and 146.8ms write for iSCSI and 130.3ms read and 144.5ms write in SMB. For 4K max latency, the NAS hit 832ms read and 879ms write when configured in SMB and 2,146ms read and 1,568ms write in iSCSI. With 4K standard deviation the QNAP hit 141.5ms read and 140.1ms write in iSCSI and 56.8ms read and 80.4ms write in SMB.

For sequential workloads, the NAS hit 138K IOPS read and 147K IOPS write in iSCSI and 69K IOPS read and 127K IOPS write in SMB. 128K saw 1.15GB/s read and 1.38GB/s write in iSCSI while SMB was able to hit 1.15GB/s read and 1.73GB/s write.

The QNAP TVS-h1288x leverages the QuTS hero operating system to provide creative professionals and small businesses with a ton of options when it comes to their storage. The NAS has plenty of performance options as well, though it did really well in our benchmarks as shipped. Overall QNAP continues to be one of the most flexible NAS solutions around, the NVMe M.2 bays are the most usable (cache/tier/volume) in the category for instance. The TVS-h1288x hits an excellent mix of features and configurability making it one of our favorites in this price range.

QNAP TVS H1288X Review Cover Web

QNAP has built NAS units for years and we are finally getting to take a look at a NAS unit from a category we have not covered for the company. Specifically, while we have looked at both rackmount and low-end desktop NAS units from QNAP, the QNAP TVS-h1288X we are reviewing here is best described as a mix of many different concepts. It is bigger than the company’s 2-bay, 4-bay, and similar units, but it is still a desktop form factor. It has twelve drive bays, and that is before one gets to the internal storage options. It is a QNAP NAS, but that now includes ZFS.

Realistically, the overarching thought is that QNAP has built the edge server many STH readers have been trying to build for over a decade. That is a bit of a bold statement, but upon reflecting on what you will soon read, it will make a lot of sense if one starts to read this review with that contextual model.

QNAP TVS-h1288X Hardware Overview

We are going to split the article into internal and external hardware overviews. This is simply due to the detail and is the same as we do with servers. Unlike some of the smaller NAS units, this unit has a lot going on warranting a more thorough look. We are going to mix our external overview a bit and show some of the parts that span both the internal and external domains. It still made sense to split.

Since this is a long article, and that is a longer video, we recommend opening the video on YouTube.

QNAP TVS-h1288X External Overview

The unit itself is 9.24 × 14.56 × 12.59 inches and is designed to be a large desktop chassis. While there are some NASes on the market designed to be compact 2-4 bay models and others that are designed to be rack-mounted, this is firmly a unit designed to be used in a SMB/ home office setting. There are simple features such as a LCD status display and a front USB port to make data importing easier that we often do not see on rackmount units.

For drives, we quickly wanted to mention that we are using the Seagate Exos X12 12TB  drives as well as the IronWolf Pro 125 NAS SSDs here. Seagate sent these so we could use a matching set of drives for this review.

One of the nice features here is that the unit has tool-less vibration mitigating drive trays. When we reviewed the QNAP GM-1002 3U Dual ZFS NAS, we noted how drives with screws take longer to service. Here, we have drive trays that use simple snap-in pegs to secure drives. There is a recommended option for adding screws for shipping security as well. One can see the blue vibration dampeners that help further isolate vibrations to and from the drives.

QNAP TVS H1288X Tool Less Drive Trays

The 2.5″ drive trays are far simpler. Here one simply just snaps drives into place and four pegs in the tray keep the SSDs secure. For SSDs, we do not have moving parts, so there is not the same level of vibration dampening.

The main 3.5″ drive bay has 8x locking hot-swap drive slots. This is important as many desktop units do not actually have hot-swap bays. A prime example of this is the HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 Plus that some online do not discuss while recommending that system. In a NAS, one wants hot-swap bays, especially in a larger unit designed for more users.

QNAP TVS H1288X Inside 3.5in Drive Bays

The locking 2.5 bays sit above the 3.5″ bays. The reason we had elongated 2.5″ drive trays is so that the PCB plane for the 2.5″ bays can match the 3.5″ bays below.

One item that you may not immediately notice is that QNAP has a system of vents around the drives to keep cool air flowing. This is a small touch, but it is one that we sometimes see self-build chassis lack. Between the venting and the front/ rear airflow, this keeps drives cool.

QNAP TVS H1288X Vents Under Drives

We did want to show the LCD display and one other key feature. QNAP has LED status lights that are green for functioning drives and red for drives with errors. Here we have two drives that are marked as having errors to let us show this. One can also see the status screen. This has the basic status that the system is shutting down, but can also show alerts for drive failures, IP addresses, and other important information.

Apologies for that image. As one can tell, it took some time to figure out how to get the drives in failure mode to show this. To us, being able to reliably present which drives need to be serviced is a big deal.

This is one of those features that separates this NAS from lower-end units and many self-built offerings. The motherboard has specific headers to drive the LCD and QNAP’s QuTS hero software helps display relevant information.

Moving to the rear of the unit, we see ports and ventilation holes.

QNAP TVS H1288X Rear

First, there are three large fans that pull air through the chassis and exhaust out of the rear. The primary function of these is to keep the drive bays cool, although they also expel hot air from the 10Gbase-T NIC.

QNAP TVS H1288X Fan And Power Supply

These fans are also oriented just above the power supply which we can see on an internal view here:

One item we really like is that the power supply has an on/off switch in addition to the front power button. This may seem like a small feature, but it is nice to have here.

The rear I/O has a lot going on. There are two USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A and two Type-C ports. This offers quite a bit of extra connectivity, especially with a more modern 10Gbps USB standard. There is a HDMI port that can be used to drive a display as well.

QNAP TVS H1288X Rear HDMI 2.5GbE And USB

Perhaps the biggest rear feature is around the networking. There are four RJ45 ports that are common in this class of NAS. Instead of these being 1GbE ports as companies like Synology generally use, QNAP has four 2.5GbE ports that can run at the lower 1GbE speeds as well. We are seeing more 2.5GbE gear so it is nice that QNAP is using a more modern standard. Not everyone will use this, but it only adds a few dollars to a BOM cost and offers 2.5x the performance of the older standards.

Those four ports are not the only network ports though. This unit also has a dual 10Gbase-T option. This is provided through a PCIe card in the top slot.

QNAP TVS H1288X Dual 10Gbase T

We use a lot of SFP+ and know many of our readers do as well. Still, one can use a SFP+ to 10Gbase-T Adapter Module and convert the interfaces. Also as a PCIe card, it seems like this is something that QNAP could offer a different option on very easily. In this class of NAS, we are just thankful that QNAP added a higher-speed network option. The Synology DiskStation DS3617xs is perhaps this unit’s closest competitor at the same price point and only has 4x 1GbE while QNAP is offering 2x 10GbE and 4x 2.5GbE. There is a massive delta on the networking side.

Next, we are going to take a look at the internals of the system.
