2. When Virtualization Station uses graphics cards, the NAS will temporarily stop hardware transcoding acceleration for QTS (and vice versa).
3. GPU support for QTS only applies to NVIDIA graphics cards. GPU Passthrough for VM is supported by AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards.
4. TS-677 supports graphics cards with dimensions up to 216 x 117 x 40 mm.
5. Consult the Compatibility List for information on supported NAS and graphics cards.
SSD caching and auto tiering enable 24/7 optimized storage efficiency
The TS-677 provides two 2.5-inch SSD slots dedicated for caching to increase IOPS performance, and supports optional M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSDs. Using an SSD cache boosts overall system performance, and is perfect for improving the overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as virtualization. Qtier™ Technology empowers the TS-677 with auto tiering that further helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across M.2 SSD, SSD, high-capacity SATA drives, and the optional PCIe NVMe SSD with around-the-clock acceleration. The new Qtier™ 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSD.
Note: M.2 SSD sold separately. M.2 SSD operations can easily generate excessive heat, and it is recommended to install a heatsink (from QNAP or a third-party provider) on M.2 SSD.
Performance & reliability. Your wise choice.
The TS-677 supports advanced business features to provide maximized efficiency, performance, and to ensure round-the-clock services.
For businesses using NAS with over 10 disks, RAID 50/60 not only provides greater data protection than a single RAID 5/6, but also maximizes usable storage space compared to RAID 10. Besides data storage, and with an obvious random write performance boost when using SSD RAID, RAID 50/60 also offers a great choice for professional video streaming and database usage.
iSCSI Extensions for RDMA (iSER) protocol working with a compatible 10GbE/40GbE SFP+ NIC helps boost data transfer performance of the TS-677 as VMware® ESXi storage, providing an essential tool to optimize demanding virtualization applications.

Optimized collaboration with seamless file sharing and sync
The TS-677 centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® networks. Coupled with Qsync (a utility that turns a QNAP NAS into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization) any file uploaded to the TS-677 will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops or mobile devices. You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. Files can be centrally managed using File Station, including files from mobile devices and optical disc drives. File Station also allows you to mount a remote NAS, and transfer files between your NAS and public cloud services for greater convenience.
Complete backup planning
The TS-677 provides a reliable, flexible backup & disaster recovery solution to assist organizations in routine backup jobs with cost-efficiency and high productivity.
Windows and Mac backup
Use the license-free QNAP NetBak Replicator utility to back up/restore Windows® files, alongside Time Machine® support for Mac® devices. It is easy, fast and convenient.
Hybrid Backup Sync
Consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) for easily transferring data to local, remote and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan.
Snapshots for Volume & LUN
Snapshot is essential for NAS data protection, and its block-level feature makes it a dependable method for protecting data in the face of the growing threat of ransomware. The TS-677 supports up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN, and maximum 1,024 snapshots per NAS.
With high performance, potentially huge storage capacities, integrated virtualization solutions, and support for snapshots that record the state of the system at any time, the TS-677 are perfect for backing up virtual machines.
