High-performance multifunctional 10GbE NAS featuring M.2 NVMe SSD caching and 4K HDMI output for virtualization and multimedia

Powered by an Intel® Core™ i3 processor, the high-performance TVS-872X NAS features built-in 10GbE connectivity for boosted virtualization performance and streamlined backup and application workflows from multiple workstations. The TVS-872X also supports M.2 NVMe SSDs for cache acceleration, PCIe expansion, multi-cloud backup, 4K HDMI 2.0 output and real-time transcoding, alongside expandable storage capacity and feature-rich apps to perform as a cost-efficient, reliable, and multifunctional NAS solution.

  • 5-speed 10GBASE-T RJ45 connectivity accelerates virtualization, intensive file access, large backup/restoration tasks, and media transfer.

  • Dual M.2 PCIe Gen 3 x2 NVMe SSD slots enable cache acceleration or SSD storage pools for improved performance.

  • PCIe expansion allows for 2.5/5/10/25GbE network cards, QM2 card, QXP storage expansion cards, or graphics cards.

  • 4K media playback and real-time transcoding; display multimedia content saved on the NAS via HDMI 2.0 (4K @60Hz) output.

  • Host multiple virtual machines and containers to run a wide range of applications and services.

  • A business-class backup center supporting backup/restore of cloud data and VMs (including Google™ Workspace, Microsoft 365®, VMware® and Hyper-V).

Quad-core 3.1 GHz processor with up to 64 GB memory

The TVS-872X adopts an Intel® Core™ i3-8100T quad-core 3.1 GHz 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 include 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)

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!

SSD cache acceleration

Enables SSD caching for increasing IOPS performance and reducing latency for storage volumes. This is perfect for IOPS-demanding applications including databases and virtualization.
