Key Selling Points
- High-speed Thunderbolt 3 with SMB protocol, allowing Mac and Windows users to collaborate 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-472XT adopts a powerful processor with dual-channel DDR4 memory for outstanding performance. It offers two Gigabit ports and a 5-speed 10GBASE-T port (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M), supports SATA 6Gb/s disks, and features AES-NI encryption to deliver high performance while preserving data security. You can also connect USB Type C drives via Thunderbolt 3 ports to transfer large media files between devices for more efficient workflows.
The TVS-472XT has two PCIe Gen 3 slots (the first slot is pre-installed with a Thunderbolt 3 card) that allow you to use several expansion cards to expand potential applications.
SSD caches accelerate IOPS performance and reduce latency for storage volumes. They are perfect for applications with high IOPS demands (including databases and virtualization) and can significantly improve overall workflows.
Qtier technology enhances the TVS-472XT with automatic partitioning that helps to continuously optimize storage efficiency by automatically moving data between M.2 SSDs, 2.5-inch SSDs, and high-capacity HDDs based on the frequency of data access.
As SSD prices continue to become more affordable, there has never been a better time to use SSDs in NAS for higher performance, faster file backups, smoother media experiences, and optimized virtualization applications.
The Virtual Networking and Switching application manages physical network interfaces and virtual adapters (virtual machines and containers) and related communications to deliver virtualized technology that sharply presents the connections of physical and virtual networks. Flexible management makes it extremely easy to rearrange physical and virtual network connections so that appropriate network resources can be allocated for TVS-472XT, virtual machines and containers where needed.
The TVS-472XT is the perfect choice for Mac and Windows users equipped with Thunderbolt, especially for photographers, logs, and graphic designers who require 4K multimedia storage, instant sharing, and bandwidth-intensive workflows. Up to 2 Thunderbolt devices can be connected to the TVS-472XT to process photos in real time and perform audio editing at the same time without affecting system performance. Since Final Cut Pro X 10.3 (and later) supports file sharing via SMB, Windows users and other devices using Thunderbolt 3, 10GbE or GbE connections can participate more efficiently in the editing workflow.
QNAP offers several cost-effective solutions to help upgrade the network environment to 10GbE. No matter whether team members use Mac or Windows computers, they can take advantage of the exceptional transfer speeds and simultaneous real-time access to large NAS-based files using multiple workstations (ideal for video and multimedia editing).
The TVS-472XT features an HDMI 2.0 port that supports 4K (3840 x 2160) output at 60Hz, providing great benefits to applications such as video production/editing, industrial design, and professional photography, which require image resolution and color realism, as well as an intensive level of media file storage, transfer, and display. By connecting the TVS-472XT to an HDTV via the HDMI output, you can view multimedia content saved on NAS directly on a large screen. You can also download and install multimedia applications from Ubuntu Software Center via QNAP Linux Station. QNAP's HD Station also allows users to directly play media content using an HD Player or third-party players such as Plex Home Theater.
TVS-472XT offers a reliable and flexible disaster recovery and backup solution to assist organizations with backup processes for increased productivity at reduced costs.
Virtualization Station and Container Station introduce a hybrid approach to virtualization. Regardless of your virtualization needs, you can count on QNAP for comprehensive support for virtualization.
