The TL-R1220Sep-RP SAS 12Gb/s storage expansion enclosure is designed for expanding the storage space of your QTS or QuTS hero NAS. Up to sixteen expansion enclosures can be daisy-chained via high-speed mini SAS HD cables to support up to 3.4PB raw capacity, ideal for archiving/backing up virtualization applications, surveillance recordings, large data, or multimedia. Featuring Broadcom® SAS DataBolt™ bandwidth optimization technology, the TL-R1220Sep-RP consolidates 6Gb/s infrastructure into 12Gb/s. With four mini SAS HD SFF-8644 Wide Ports, the TL-R1220Sep-RP delivers up to 192Gbps transfer speed when connected to a single host. When connected to a QTS/QuTS hero NAS that supports multipath routing, the TL-R1220Sep-RP can achieve smoother data transmission and continuous system operation.
1. The QNAP NAS requires QTS 4.5.1 / QuTS hero h4.5.1 (or later) with SAS ports or with a QXP PCIe SAS storage expansion card installed. Check PCIe SAS card compatibility.
2. Due to global chip shortages, this product is out of stock and facing manufacturing delays. We have now stopped taking orders because of supply uncertainty. When availability of the SAS chipset stabilizes, we will evaluate the market demand again.

Achieve up to 96Gb/s with link aggregation
The TL-R1220Sep-RP is powered by a low-power 28nm SAS35x28R SAS Expander and supports 12/6 Gb/s SAS/SATA drives. Also, it has four 12 Gb/s SAS 3.0 (x4 Lane) SFF-8644 SAS Wide Ports. By connecting the TL-R1220Sep-RP to the host NAS and daisy-chaining multiple JBODs with two wide ports configured with link aggregation, the solution delivers up to 96Gb/s transfer speed.
Ultimate performance for enterprise applications
Supports SAS DataBolt™ technology, delivers 12Gb/s speed using existing 6Gb/s infrastructure
Featuring Broadcom® SAS DataBolt™ bandwidth optimization technology, the TL-R1220Sep-RP features an intelligent data buffer for transferring data to drives at speeds that match the performance of the host NAS. Whether the TL-R1220Sep-RP uses 12Gb/s or 6Gb/s drives, the NAS host will transfer data to the TL-R1220Sep-RP at 12Gb/s, allowing you benefit from high-speed 12Gb/s SAS transmission with existing 6Gb/s infrastructure.
Note: The QNAP host NAS requires QTS 4.5.1 / QuTS hero h4.5.1 (or later) with SAS ports or with a QXP PCIe a PCIe SAS storage expansion card installed
Short-depth design Can be installed in standard server racks or small AV cabinets

Multipath routing to ensure continuous system operations
By daisy chaining the TL-R1220Sep-RP, data transmission loads can be balanced with multipath routing to achieve high availability. If one route fails, another transmission route can be used to access the data and ensure continuous system operations. The TL-R1220Sep-RP also features a redundant power supply to ensure system uptime.
Flexible daisy chaining modes
By daisy-chaining your NAS to multiple TL SAS JBODs and REXP SAS JBODs, you can take advantage of multipath routing and link aggregation to benefit from higher transfer speeds and system availability.
By using Storage & Snapshot Manager on the host NAS, you can configure and manage the TL-R1220Sep-RP’s storage space by setting RAID groups, storage pools and snapshots, or configuring the JBOD as the storage volume of host NAS, allowing you to easily expand NAS storage to accommodate massive data or backup files. You can also configure and manage the TL-R1220Sep-RP via the Console Port.
Speed up remote file transfers with JBOD migration
Moving many small files or a single large data file over a network can be time-consuming and negatively impact network performance. By setting up the RAID configuration on the TL-R1220Sep-RP, you can use it to move files to another computer or NAS. Simply save the files to the TL-R1220Sep-RP, connect it to the destination device, and then copy the files over.
Note: When using software RAID configuration, the TL-R1220Sep-RP migration only supports hosts that use the same operating system.
