Anybody With QNAP Using QuTS Hero OS Yet?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, as the title says, is anyone using QuTS Hero OS yet, rather than the original QNAP QTS OS?

 

I'm going to convert my QNAP TVS-872XT for testing. There are some benefits to QuTS Hero but not sure any of them matter for a music storage NAS.

Deterred by this:  Expanding the storage capacity of a QuTS hero NAS requires adding a complete RAID group to the Storage Pool. Once a RAID group is created, it does not support expanding a RAID group by adding an individual hard drive and does not support migrating RAID levels.

Is QuTS hero going to replace QTS long term? Seems odd to have these as separate products, can't we just have QTS with ZFS if that's what you want?

What??  And lose that Marketing opportunity?? (facetious, tongue-in-cheek, Extreme Sarcasm, etc..)

 

At this point it looks that Hero is compatible with only a few devices.  And the "smallest" has 6 drives which really limits the user base.  "QTS Hero" is easier to say than "QTS for ZFS Compatible Devices".  I do not know enough about NAS OS architecture but I would be surprised if it became backwards compatible to much extent.  I do not hold out much hope for my machine.

QNAP TS453Pro w/QLMS->Netgear Switch->Netgear R7800 Router->Ethernet (50 ft)->Netgear switch->SBT->iFi xDSD->Linn Majik-IL (preamp)->Linn 2250->Linn Keilidh; Control Points: Squeeze Commander (DroidX) & iPeng (iPad Air); Also: Rega P3-24 w/ DV 10x5; OPPO 103; PC Playback: Foobar2000 & JRiver; Portable: Sony NWZ_ZX1 & ZX2 w/ PHA-3; SMSL IQ, Fiio Q5, iFi Nano iDSD BL; Garage: Edifier S1000DB Active Speakers  Wish List: New DAC,  SBT replacement; Dream system: Linn EXACT or ATC Active or Big Tubes (KR or Nagra or Shindo or ...)

 

My goal is to use appliances and take home PC out of the chain...
