Intel® Xeon® W desktop QuTS hero NAS, ideal for high-speed media collaboration over Thunderbolt™ 3 and 10GbE virtual machine applications

The high-capacity TVS-h1688X features a powerful Intel® Xeon® W processor and allows for installing two QNAP QXP-T32P Thunderbolt™ 3 PCIe expansion cards (sold separately) to attain four Thunderbolt™ 3 ports, making it a perfect match for Thunderbolt™-equipped Mac® and Windows® users for high-speed media collaboration. The built-in 10GbE and 2.5GbE connectivity supports Port Trunking and failover to further satisfy bandwidth and reliability demanding business applications. Running the ZFS-based QuTS hero operating system, the TVS-h1688X supports block-level inline data deduplication and compression, near-limitless snapshots, real-time SnapSync, and read/write cache technologies, helping your business achieve reliable service-level agreement performance, from creative workflows to file server, virtualization server, and efficient file backup and recovery applications.

  • Attain quad-port Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity by installing two QXP-T32P expansion cards in the PCIe Gen 3 x4 slots.
    Note: QXP-T32P expansion cards are sold separately

  • Two 10GBASE-T and four 2.5GbE LAN ports accelerate virtualization, intensive file access, large backup/restoration tasks, and media transfer.

  • PCIe slots allow for installing 5/10/25/40GbE adapters, QM2 cards, or graphics cards to increase application performance.

  • 4K media playback and real-time transcoding; directly output videos to an HDMI display (up to 4K @30Hz).

  • Supports virtual machines and containerized apps, centralized storage, backup, sharing, disaster recovery, and storage expansion.

  • Cloud storage gateways realize hybrid cloud applications by working with the cache space reserved on NAS to ensure low-latency data access to the cloud.

Six cores up to 4.7 GHz with up to 128 GB DDR4 ECC memory

Intel® Xeon® W processors are designed for a wide range of creative professionals. Powered by an Intel® Xeon® W-1250 6 cores/12 threads 3.3 GHz processor (Burst up to 4.7 GHz), the TVS-h1688X has enormous processing power to drive virtual machine performance. The integrated Intel® AES-NI encryption engine boosts encryption performance while also maintaining the security of NAS data. With dual-channel modules and 4 Long-DIMM slots, the TVS-h1688X's DDR4 ECC memory can be upgraded up to 128 GB for memory-intensive and complex multitasking workloads.

Streamline video editing and 4K workflows with Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity

You can install two QXP-T32P Thunderbolt™ 3 expansion cards (sold separately) to the PCIe Gen 3 x4 slots of the TVS-h1688X and transform it into a Thunderbolt™ 3 NAS with quad-port Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity. Up to four Thunderbolt™-equipped workstations can be connected to the TVS-h1688X to achieve greater teamwork efficiency in 4K workflows, file storage, backup, and sharing. An SLC/MLC SSD RAID 5 configuration is recommended for the highest possible performance and the best storage allocation for your NAS.

Thunderbolt™ 3 + 10Gb Ethernet: perfect for studios and post-production houses

The TVS-h1688X can simultaneously run general Ethernet services with the built-in 10GBASE-T LAN card in addition to the Thunderbolt™ 3 network, completely independently and with no bandwidth interference. The media resources in the TVS-h1688X can be easily accessed by Thunderbolt™ and Ethernet workstations for different concurrent tasks with increased productivity.
