Setting up QNAP Qtier and Cache
Qtier and Caching use the four 2.5” bays at the bottom of the TVS-951X. It is possible to use these four bays as a separate volume for storage which might be useful for VM’s, or all four bays as Qtier drives or SSD Caching.
First, let us walk through setting up Qtier on our QNAP TVS-951X.
The Qtier setup is relatively straight forward.
Now let’s move on to setting up SSD Cache Acceleration.
We were then advised to run the SSD Profiling Tool which prepares our SSD’s for the Cache.
This does take a while to complete after the SSD’s were initialized everything was ready to go.
Now that we have looked at QNAP Qtier and SSD Cache Acceleration setup let us move on to testing and then our final thoughts.
