    The TDS-16489U features an extra four 2.5" disk trays at the rear to provide SSD caching without taking space from hard drives. By installing high-performance SSDs, the IOPS performance of storage volumes can be remarkably boosted, making it ideal for random IOPS demanding applications such as databases and virtualization.
  • IPMI helps ease server management
    IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) supports intelligent system monitoring, controlling, and hardware logs for TDS-16489U platform status such as system temperatures, voltages and fans. IPMI operates independently from the QTS operating system to allow administrators to remotely manage the TDS-16489U even when the system is powered down. IPMI provides a web-based management interface, supports power-down and rebooting from remote control and hardware monitoring and logs.
  • Built-in 4 x 10GbE SFP+ ports
    10GbE networks greatly benefit virtualization applications, data backup/restoration and massive data transmission. The TDS-16489U features four 10GbE SFP+ ports which can optimize system performance and assist businesses to flexibly build virtualization environments and increase productivity.
  • Enable Auto Tiering with Qtier technology
    QNAP's Qtier technology empowers the TDS-16489U with Auto Tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency. With Auto Tiering, the TDS-16489U can automatically move hot data to high-performance storage tiers and cold data to lower-cost, higher-capacity drives, making the TDS-16489U an extremely efficient shared resource.
  • Double-Take Availability for disaster recovery for VMs
    Besides offering server-grade virtualization environment, the TDS-16489U supports Double-Take Availability to provide comprehensive high availability and disaster recovery. You can use virtualization station to create a passive backup virtual machine for a primary physical server, or establish two virtual machines and make one active system and the other passive system. The backup virtual machine supports failover for the primary system whenever needed to enable data protection and continuous services. The backup environment using double-take replicates incremental data in real-time, remarkably shortening the time for migrating data and reducing bandwidth consumption.
  • Powerful QNAP flexible volume
    QNAP's flexible volume provides a more secure and flexible way to store NAS data. This volume offers powerful features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID group protection, thin provisioned volume with space reclaim, block-level iSCSI LUN, and online capacity expansion. The QTS Storage Manager neatly presents tools and options for managing system storage which simplifies the process of NAS capacity expansion and QNAP RAID expansion enclosure management.
  • Volume & LUN snapshot simplifies restoration
    QTS Storage Manager adds an easy-to-use web-based snapshot tool for you to easily back up and restore data on the TDS-16489U back to any point of time to prevent the loss of important data. You can take snapshots for both volumes and LUN, efficiently replicate volume/LUN snapshots to remote servers by only copying the changes made, and quickly clone a volume /LUN snapshot as a local volume without interrupting the current system operation. You can even set up the system to automatically take a snapshot of the volume before backup via RTRR/rsync, even when the file is opened.
  • Highly-efficient storage solution for video editing
    Digital video production produces a significant amount of data that requires high-performance storage with sustainable throughput to meet the demanding needs of video editing.

Out of stock


Well, this is disappointing - this product has sold out. Fear not though, more may be on order or we may be able to source it for you.

Are we out on price?

We check our prices daily against a wide range of competitors to try to bring you the best deal. However, if you've spotted a better price offered by one of our competitors, please let us know and we'll do our very best to match it.

Price Match Challenge

Is the advertised price & availability genuine?

The IT sector is littered with companies who don't hold stock. Their websites advertise products that are sourced from third party suppliers. Pricing and availability data on such sites is typically retrieved from files or feeds which are often not refreshed regularly enough. The result? Cancelled orders, long lead times and disgruntled customers.

King of Servers is a major stockholder with full transparency into our stockholding and pricing. Our website is refreshed on a 15-minute cycle 24/7 so the pricing and availability you see online is both accurate and reliable.

We recommend you double check a cheaper price elsewhere is accurate and based on physical stock that can be shipped immediately before placing your order.

Do they really have the product in stock?

We show true stock counts on our website, not woolly messages like ‘in stock' or ‘available to order'. Stock levels are updated every 15 minutes 24/7 so you can see exactly how many units we have sat in our warehouse available for immediate despatch.

And speaking of shipping, did you know we offer same day deliveries? You can choose this or other timed services during checkout on our website or contact our sales team for a quote. Handy when you need the goods in a hurry!

Do they specify product condition?

Most web stores fail to specify the stock condition of the products they advertise for sale. It seems reasonable to assume that all products are brand new, unused units supplied in the sealed, original manufacturer packaging and protected by the full warranty but this isn't always the case.

A heavily discounted price can be a sign that the product in question may be a used or refurbished unit. Open/damaged box and ‘ex demo' units are also rife in the marketplace and warranty cover on such goods will be variable so it's wise to check what you're getting before committing to any purchase.

King of Servers displays the product condition on all our product pages. As well as detailing what the condition means, we specify the level of warranty condition allowing you to make an informed buying decision.

Ensure you compare like for like when shopping around for prices online.

Is the product covered by warranty?

All brand new products come with a full manufacturer warranty, right? Not always; it depends where the products were sourced from. You may have heard of the grey market or parallel imports? Manufacturers often stipulate the geographical regions in which their products are designated for sale. Unscrupulous suppliers seek to source goods from outside of these regions at cheaper costs which they pass on via cheaper prices. The downside is that the manufacturer might not honour the warranty in the event of a support call. Grey kit does not qualify for warranty support and if it fails, you could be significantly out of pocket.

All products offered for sale at King of Servers are sourced from legitimate channels and are covered by warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which can be validated on the manufacturer's website to ensure warranty cover is in place prior to purchase.

Ask any potential supplier if they can supply serial numbers ahead of purchase. Any legitimate stockholder who has sourced the goods from the proper channels should be able and happy to do so.

Is the competitor trustworthy?

Look beyond the price and establish whether the company behind the product is a bona fide organisation that you can return to should you encounter issues down the line. This is particularly important if you've never heard of them before. It's relatively easy to set up a web shop nowadays which makes it difficult to differentiate between a one-man band operating out of a home office and a well-established, reputable bricks and mortar business. Sales T&Cs, returns policy and aftercare service are probably important areas for you to consider.
