QNAP® Systems, Inc. today launched the new TVS-x72N 5GbE NAS series, powered by 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i3 processors and features a 5GBASE-T port to deliver transfer speeds up to five times faster than Gigabit Ethernet, making 4K video transfer, display, and editing smooth and streamlined. The TVS-x72N comes with two built-in M.2 SSD slots for enabling SSD caching, features HBS 3 with data deduplication for faster data backup and recovery, and provides cloud storage gateway functions to create a cost-effective hybrid cloud storage environment.

“With computers and networking devices now widely supporting Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), the common Ethernet networking speed has increased from 1 Gigabit (GbE) to 2.5 GbE and 5 GbE,” said David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP, adding, “Users can add the TVS-x72N 5GbE NAS that offers four transfer speeds to their network environment to optimize their network storage usage experience.”

The TVS-x72N comes in 6-bay and 8-bay models and features powerful 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i3 processors. In addition to supporting 2.5-inch SSDs for SSD caching, the TVS-x72N provides two M.2 SSD slots for installing PCIe Gen 3 x2 NVMe SSDs (M.2 SSDs are sold separately). Users can also add M.2 SSDs by installing QNAP’s QM2 expansion card via the PCIe expansion slot. These multiple SSD configuration methods coupled with QNAP cloud storage gateway functions, making the TVS-x72N a network gateway between local and cloud storage spaces for seamless cloud backup while also allows users to benefit from low-latency, high-performance cloud storage access.

The TVS-x72N comes with Intel® UHD Graphics 630 to enable triple-channel 4K H.264 hardware decoding and real-time transcoding and features an HDMI 2.0 output that supports 4K resolution (3,840×2,160 pixels) at 60Hz, providing great benefits for applications that manage high-resolution images. The TVS-x72N also allows direct playback of NAS-based multimedia content on high-definition displays.

Powered by QTS, the TVS-x72N series provides feature-rich functions, including the HBS 3 data backup and recovery solution, which incorporates QuDedup technology that deduplicates data at the source to reduce storage space and time spent on comprehensive multiple version backups; block-based snapshot protection to effectively mitigate ransomware threats; and the ability to host multiple virtual machines and containerized applications. Additionally, the QVR Pro app can help users deploy a professional yet affordable video surveillance system (with 8 free IP camera channels), and QuMagie integrates an AI algorithm for more intuitive and streamlined photo management.
