Using a top-down holographic dual of large-N thermal QCD of Dasgupta et al [2009], its  type IIA mirror and M-theory uplift worked out by Dhuria and Misra [2013], we will discuss holographic computation of  lattice compatible deconfinement temperature, the temperature dependence of DC conductivity and the N(ext to) L(eading) O(rder) correction to diffusion constant, speed of sound, the shear-viscosity-to -entropy-density ratio of large-N thermal QCD. On  the holographic phenomenology side, we will discuss evaluation of 0++, 0--, 0-+, 1++, 2++ Glueball masses using the same gravitational dual(s).
