Powered by an 8th generation Intel Core processor, the high-performance TVS-672XT NAS features both 10GBASE-T and Thunderbolt 3 high-bandwidth connectivity for tackling heavy workloads and smoothly transferring, displaying and editing 4K videos in real-time. With M.2 SSD support and the ability to install a graphics card, the TVS-672XT provides the ability to boost performance and create a scalable working environment for collaboration and high-speed file sharing. The TVS-672XT is driven by high-quality hardware that delivers optimum performance, comprehensive multimedia features, expandable storage capacity, and numerous other NAS functionalities to inspire greater creativity and accomplishments!
Key Selling Points
- High-speed Thunderbolt 3 with SMB protocol, perfect for collaboration on media editing
- 5-speed 10GBASE-T RJ45 connectivity accelerates virtualization applications and file sharing across teams and devices
- PCIe expandability allows for graphics cards or 40GbE/ 25GbE/ 10GbE adapters to increase application performance
- Install M.2 PCIe (Gen 3 x2, 2 GB/s) NVMe SSDs (sold separately) to set up caching or storage pools, improving file access efficiency
- 4K media playback and real-time transcoding; directly view creative works on an HDTV via HDMI 2.0 (4K @60Hz) output
- Snapshots fully record system status and data, allowing you to protect files and data from accidental deletion and malware attacks
The TVS-672XT features two PCIe Gen 3 slots (the first slot is pre-installed with a Thunderbolt 3 card) that allow for the usage of various expansion cards to expand application potential.
SSD caches accelerate IOPS performance and reduce latency for storage volumes. They are perfect for IOPS-demanding applications (including databases and virtualization) and can significantly improve overall workflows.
Qtier Technology empowers the TVS-672XT with auto tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency by automatically moving data between M.2 SSDs, 2.5-inch 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.
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-672XT, adjust the SSD OP, and potentially attain performance and endurance levels similar to enterprise-grade SSDs.
Common Fiber Channel SAN (Storage Area Networks) devices are often expensive. Now you have more budge-friendly options to easily add your NAS to a SAN environment. Once a Marvell, ATTO or QNAP Fiber Channel card has been installed in the TVS-672XT, you can set a Fiber Channel Target using the iSCSI & Fiber Channel app, and leverage the many benefits from QNAP NAS including snapshot protection, Qtier tiering storage, SSD cache acceleration and more. In addition, the LUN Masking and Port Binding features provide an additional layer of security for your data.
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-672XT, virtual machines and containers whenever needed.
The TVS-672XT is the perfect match for Thunderbolt -equipped Mac users - especially for photographers, filmmakers, and graphic designers who require 4K media storage, instant sharing and have bandwidth-intensive workflows. Up to 2 Thunderbolt devices can be connected to the TVS-672XT 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.
The iMac Pro is the first Mac computer that includes a 10Gb Ethernet port, marking a milestone in the growing mainstream demands for 10GbE connectivity. As the TVS-672XT comes with both 10GbE and Thunderbolt 3 ports, it provides an exceptional storage base for iMac Pro users as they can flexibly choose between Thunderbolt 3 and 10GbE connections to suit their application and device needs.
