Configuring SSD Cache Disks

For details on compatible SSDs, see www.qnap.com/compatibility.

  1. Go to Storage & Snapshots > Storage > Cache Acceleration.
  2. Go to the Read Cache or ZIL Synchronous I/O Write Log tab.

    This step is only available if you created the read cache and write log separately.

  3. Click Manage, and then select Configure Cache Disks.

    The Configure Cache Disks window opens.

  4. Select the SSDs to be included in the cache.

    If the cache type is ZIL Synchronized I/O Write Log or Read Cache and ZIL Synchronized I/O Write Log, you must select an even number of disks.


    All data except for system partition data will be deleted.

  5. Click Apply.

    A confirmation message appears.

QuTS hero uses the selected drives as an SSD cache. If no SSDs are selected, QuTS hero disables the SSD cache.
