QNAP Launches the Multifunctional TVS-x72X 10GbE NAS with 4K HDMI and M.2 NVMe SSD Support

  • Reading time:6 mins read

QNAP® Systems, Inc. launched the high-performance 6-bay TVS-672X and 8-bay TVS-872X 10GbE NAS with Intel® Core™ i3 processors. With expandable storage capacity and feature-rich apps, both models support M.2 NVMe SSD cache acceleration, PCIe expansion, multi-cloud backup, 4K@60Hz HDMI output, real-time transcoding, support for Azure Active Directory Domain Services (Azure AD DS), and many more features to enhance the workflows and productivity of small and medium businesses.

“The 10GbE-ready TVS-x72X is a step up from the TVS-x72N 5GbE NAS. Users can take advantage of the built-in dual M.2 SSD slots for SSD caching or Qtier auto-tiered storage, enjoying optimized storage efficiency and performance while maximizing 10GbE potential,” said Joseph Chiang, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “Secure remote access and comprehensive file management also make the TVS-x72X series ideal for a remote working file center to improve teamwork and productivity.”

The TVS-x72X series features an Intel® Core™ i3-8100T quad-core 3.1 GHz processor with dual-channel DDR4 memory (upgradable to 64 GB). It provides two Gigabit and one 10GBASE-T RJ45 (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M) port to increase virtual machine performance, intensive file access, high-speed backup/restore, and media file transfer. Four USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) ports also allow compatibility with newer, faster USB drives/expansion enclosures for transferring large media files. The TVS-x72X series is perfectly suited for use with QNAP’s budget-friendly managed and unmanaged 10GbE switches for high-speed, secure, and scalable network environments.

Users can configure SSD caching by using either 2.5-inch SSDs or two M.2 NVMe 2280 SSDs (sold separately) in the TVS-x72X. PCIe expandability empowers greater NAS usage potential by installing QNAP’s QM2 cards, 2.5/5/10/25GbE network cards, Fibre Channel cards, and storage expansion cards. The TVS-x72X series provides an HDMI 2.0 output that supports up to 4K (3840 x 2160p) @60Hz, and allows for directly displaying multimedia, virtual machines, or an Ubuntu® desktop on a monitor or TV.

The TVS-x72X series meets storage demands for security, backup, file sharing, and central management. Block-based snapshots ensure data protection and instant restoration, helping users protect against ransomware threats. HBS (Hybrid Backup Sync) facilitates local/remote/cloud backup tasks and saves time and storage with the help of QuDedup technology that deduplicates backup files at the source. The TVS-x72X NAS can also act as a business-class backup center by supporting backup/restore of cloud data and VMs (including Google™ Workspace, Microsoft 365®, VMware® and Hyper-V). Team collaboration can be greatly improved with Qsync for file synchronization. The built-in App Center increases NAS application potential, such as hosting multiple virtual machines and containers and deploying a cloud storage gateway.

TVS-x72X NAS users can switch the operating system from QTS to 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.
