To test the TVS-673e we used six 6TB Red drives (WD60EFRX, 5,400rpm class, 64MB cache), built into RAID 0,5,6,10 and 50 arrays and tested with both 1GbE and 10GbE connections .
For 10GbE testing, QNAP kindly supplied us with a QM2-2P10G1T card to install in the TS-877 while in the test rig we used an ASUS XG-C100C 10GbE card. To connect the two we used a Cat7 cable.
Thanks to Asus for their support with this. You can see more information on this card on the ASUS site, over HERE.
The QM2 family of add-in cards support either SATA or PCIe M.2 SSDs and/or 10GbE networking. The QM2-2P10G1T provides two M.2 2280 PCIe Gen 2 x2 slots as well as a single 10GbE port.
