    General Features

    Fast and Flexible Thunderbolt 3 and 10GBase-T Connectivity

    The TVS-872XT adopts a powerful 8th Gen 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5-8400T Six-Core processor with 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory (upgradable to 64GB) to deliver outstanding performance. It provides two Gigabit and one five-speed 10GBase-T port (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M), supports SATA III 6 Gb/s drives, and features AES-NI encryption for delivering high performance while also maintaining the security of your data. You can also connect USB Type-C devices through the Thunderbolt 3 ports to transfer large media files across devices, providing you with a more efficient workflow.

    Extend NAS Functionality with a Graphics Card and Other PCIe Devices

    The TVS-872XT features two PCIe Gen 3 slots (the first slot is preinstalled with a Thunderbolt 3 card) that allow for the usage of various expansion cards to expand application potential.

    Graphics Cards
    Accelerate NAS video processing and empower GPGPU tasks. GPUs can also be passed through to virtual machines.

    QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE Cards
    Add M.2 SSD caching or 10GbE (10GBase-T) connectivity to the NAS for optimized performance and bandwidth.

    10GbE / 40GbE Adapters
    Enable fast throughput for bandwidth-demanding tasks such as virtualization, massive data transmission, and fast backup/restoration.

    Wireless Network Cards
    Use the QNAP QWA-AC2600 wireless adapter with WirelessAP Station to transform the TVS-872XT into a convenient wireless base station, allowing network resources of the NAS to be shared with multiple devices.

    Rerformance Benefits from M.2 SSD Caching

    Besides using 2.5″ SSDs for caching, you can utilize the two M.2 SSD slots built in to the TVS-872XT for installing PCIe (Gen 3 x2, 2 GB/s) NVMe SSDs with 2280 form factors. Note: M.2 SSDs are sold separately.

    Improve Random Data Access Speeds with an SSD Cache
    SSD caches accelerate IOPS performance and reduce latency for storage volumes. They are good for IOPS-demanding applications, (including databases and virtualization, and can improve overall workflows.

    Maximize the Value of SSDs with Qtier Technology
    Qtier Technology empowers the TVS-872XT with auto tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency by automatically moving data between M.2 SSDs, 2.5″ SSDs, and high-capacity HDDs based on the data’s access frequency. Qtier 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD-tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSDs.

    Potentially Attain Performance & Endurance Levels Similar to Enterprise-Grade SSDs

    With SSD prices continuing to become more affordable, there’s never been a better time for using SSDs in your NAS to enjoy higher performance, faster file backups, smoother multimedia experiences, and optimized virtualization applications. From QTS 4.3.5, you can benefit from software-defined SSD RAID extra over-provisioning (OP) that enables you to allocate additional OP space (from 1% to 60%) to optimize random write speeds and to extend SSD lifespan. Now, you can use affordable consumer SSDs for the TVS-872XT, adjust the SSD OP, and potentially attain performance and endurance levels similar to enterprise-grade SSDs.

    Flexibly Manage Virtual and Physical Networks

    The Network & Virtual Switch app manages physical network interfaces (including network adapters and Thunderbolt ports) and virtual adapters (virtual machines and containers) and their communications, providing a visualized topology that clearly presents the connections of physical and virtual networks. The flexible manageability enables you to reorganize physical and virtual network connections with greater ease, so you can allocate adequate network resources to the TVS-872XT, virtual machines, and containers whenever needed.

    Collaboration Station for Mac and Windows

    The TVS-872XT is a good match for Thunderbolt-equipped Mac and Windows users, especially for photographers, filmmakers, and graphic designers who require 4K media storage, instant sharing, and have bandwidth-intensive workflows. Up to two Thunderbolt devices can be connected to the TVS-872XT to process real-time photo and audio editing simultaneously without impacting system performance. As Final Cut Pro X 10.3 and later supports file sharing via SMB, Windows users and other devices utilizing Thunderbolt 3, 10GbE, or GbE connections can join the editing workflow more efficiently.

    Note: Thunderbolt cables are sold separately. Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) to Thunderbolt 2 converters may not be compatible with certain Windows models.

    Storage Solution for the 10GbE iMac Pro

    The iMac Pro has a 10Gb Ethernet port, thanks to the growing mainstream demands for 10GbE connectivity. As the TVS-872XT comes with both 10GbE and Thunderbolt 3 ports, it provides a strongstorage base for iMac Pro users, as they can flexibly choose between Thunderbolt 3 and 10GbE connections to suit their application and device needs.
