Intel® Core™ i3/i5 processor with up to 64 GB of memory

 

The TVS-872X adopts an Intel® Core™ i3/i5 processor with dual-channel DDR4 memory (expandable to 64 GB) to tackle heavy multitasking workloads. AES-NI encryption support boosts encryption performance to secure NAS data without impacting overall system operations.

Build a budget-friendly 10GbE environment

The TVS-872X has two Gigabit ports and one 10GBASE-T Multi-Gig (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M) port for high-speed networking to satisfy bandwidth-demanding applications (including virtualization, massive file transfer, high-speed backup/restoration, and multimedia transmission). QNAP’s managed and unmanaged 10GbE switches are a perfect match for organizations to build budget-friendly high-speed networks for productive team collaboration. The TVS-872X also includes four USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports with up to 10Gb/s transfer speeds, allowing compatibility with newer, faster USB drives/expansion enclosures for transferring large media files.

Get performance benefits from SSD caching and Qtier Technology

To attain optimal I/O and reduce latency, you can configure SSD caching by using either 2.5-inch SSDs or two M.2 NVMe 2280 SSDs (sold separately) in the TVS-872X. Extra M.2 SSD slots can also be added by installing QM2 PCIe cards, allowing you to configure your M.2 SSDs in a RAID 5/6 array to achieve higher sequential speed or a read-only cache speed similar to the performance of a RAID 10 array while maintaining high storage efficiency.

 

SSD over-provisioning
(Over-provisioning)
SSD cache acceleration Qtier for auto-tiering
Add additional SSD over-provisioning to avoid write amplification and improve SSD random write speeds and endurance. You can potentially attain enterprise-grade SSD performance levels from affordable consumer-grade SSDs! Enables SSD caching for increasing IOPS performance and reducing latency for storage volumes. This is perfect for IOPS-demanding applications including databases and virtualization. Qtier Technology drives auto-tiered storage with continuous data optimization across high-performance SSDs and high-capacity HDDs based on access frequency. I/O-Aware Qtier can reserve a cache-like space in the SSD tiered to handle burst I/O in real-time.

 

Abundant I/O capabilities with PCIe expansion

The TVS-872X has two PCIe Gen 3 slots that allow for installing various expansion cards for expanding application potential.

Direct 4K HDMI output for multimedia and virtual machines

The TVS-872X features Intel® UHD Graphics 630 that supports hardware decoding and real-time transcoding*. The HDMI 2.0 output supports up to 4K (3840 x 2160p) @60Hz, providing great benefits for applications like video production/editing or industrial design that demands high resolution and color realism as well as intensive media storage, transfer and display. By connecting the TVS-872X to an HDMI display, you can operate virtual machines from Virtualization Station or Ubuntu Linux Station, or directly watch multimedia content saved on the NAS. QNAP’s HD Station also allows users to directly enjoy multimedia using HD Player or third-party players like Plex® Home Theater.

*The TVS-872X’s hardware provides H.264 hardware decoding, encoding, and transcoding capabilities. However, playback quality may vary due to factors (including playback software, file formats, system usage, and available bandwidth).

A secure file center supporting regular backups and snapshot protection

The TVS-872X provides a reliable, flexible backup and disaster recovery solution to simplify routine backup jobs cost-efficiently and with high productivity.

HBS simplifies 3-2-1 backup plans

HBS centralizes backup, restoration, and synchronization for easily backing up Windows® and Mac® data and transferring data in the TVS-872X to another QNAP NAS, remote server, or cloud storage space. HBS supports QuDedup technology that eliminates redundant data at the source and makes multi-version backup faster.

Snapshots multiply backup protection

Block-level snapshots are dependable data protection methods, especially in the face of growing ransomware threats. The TVS-872X supports up to 256 snapshots per volume/LUN, and up to 1,024 snapshots per NAS.

All-in-one virtual machine and container hosting solution

You can count on Virtualization Station and Container Station for comprehensive virtualization support. Coupled with the Network & Virtual Switch app that boosts interoperability between virtual machines, containers, QNAP NAS, and other networked devices, you can flexibly allocate physical and virtual network resources to simplify network deployment.

Virtualization Station

Run multiple Windows®, Linux®, UNIX®, Android™, and QuTScloud virtual machines and access them via a web browser or Virtual Network Computing (VNC). Businesses can run virtualized server applications on a single NAS without the need for additional physical servers.

Container Station

Experience LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry®, import and export containers, and create abundant microservices.

Optimized collaboration with seamless file sharing and sync

The TVS-872X centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® networks. Coupled with the Qsync utility, any file uploaded to the TVS-872X will become available for all linked devices (such as computers, laptops and mobiles). You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. The support of Azure Active Directory Domain Services (Azure AD DS), Windows AD® and LDAP services assist system administrators in managing user accounts and permissions for multiple NAS devices with greater efficiency.

Build an affordable Fibre Channel SAN environment

Common Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks (SAN) devices are often costly. By installing QNAP dual-port 16Gb/32Gb Fibre Channel expansion cards in the TVS-872X, you have more budget-friendly options to add a NAS to a SAN environment. You can set a Fibre Channel Target using the iSCSI & Fibre Channel app. Moreover, the LUN Masking and Port Binding features provide an additional layer of data security.

Flexible and economical storage expansion

The storage capacity of the TVS-872X can be expanded using USB-based expansion enclosures or connecting SATA 6Gb/s JBOD units with the PCIe-based QXP storage expansion cards. NAS storage expansion management is made easy with the user-friendly Storage & Snapshots Manager app.

Switch operating systems for optimal data integrity and reliability

The TVS-872X also supports QuTS hero – QNAP’s ZFS-based NAS operating system. Providing end-to-end data integrity, data reduction (inline data deduplication, compression and compaction), and much more, QuTS hero uses additional system resources to ensure an optimal environment for protecting business data.
