The QNAP QXP-1600eS-A1164 expansion card is designed for QNAP’s TL series JBOD storage enclosures that support SATA drives. The storage capacity of a QNAP NAS or Windows/ Ubuntu (Linux) PC can be easily expanded by installing a QXP-1600eS-A1164 into a PCIe slot, and then connecting it to a TL series JBOD storage enclosure using an SFF-8088 or SFF-8644 cable. The low-profile card form-factor allows the QXP-1600eS-A1164 to be compatible with a wide range of NAS, computers, and servers.
Supports QNAP NAS and Windows/Ubuntu PCs
Each SFF-8088 or SFF-8644 (internal) connector on the QXP-1600eS-A1164 supports up to four SATA drives. A QXP-1600eS-A1164 can be installed based on the number of drives you want to connect for storage expansion. For example, a QXP-1600eS-A1164 can be connected to a 16-bay desktop TL-D1600S JBOD enclosure or a 12-bay rackmount TL-R1200S-RP JBOD enclosure; it can also be connected to two 8-bay desktop TL-D800S JBOD enclosures simultaneously or connected to a 12-bay rackmount TL-R1200S-RP JBOD enclosure and a 4-bay rackmount TL-R400S JBOD enclosure simultaneously.
QNAP JBOD Manager for Windows/Ubuntu users
The QNAP JBOD Manager utility allows Windows and Ubuntu (Linux) PC users to monitor the status of fans, system temperature, and drive information of TL series JBOD storage enclosures.
