QNAP TVS-882ST3-I7-8G-US TVS-882ST3 8-Bay NAS Enclosure


The TVS-882ST3 8-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP provides a Thunderbolt 3/NAS/iSCSI SAN triple solution and supports higher bandwidths, including 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 and 10GbE networks for optimizing 4K video transfers and online editing. It is well-suited for use with Thunderbolt-equipped Mac and Windows users who are engaging in file storage, high-speed sharing, and 4K workflows, including on-the-fly or offline 4K H.264 transcoding.

The TVS-882ST3 is powered by a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core processor and 8GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM in a 8GB configuration, which can be upgraded to 32GB. Network connectivity is achieved using the two 10GbE ports and two Gigabit Ethernet ports that help with demanding tasks such as virtualization and intensive backup/restoration, or access 10GbE networks using the Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet 10GbE converter via Thunderbolt 3. This NAS also supports JBOD and a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and hot spare, each of which offer data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both.

This 8-bay enclosure has the ability to natively house both 2.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s hard drives and SSD drives. When using one 10GbE port, it can achieve read speeds of up to 1180 MB/s and write speeds of up to 1168 MB/s. With AES 256-bit volume encryption, read speeds max out at 1179 MB/s and write speeds are delivered up to 1150 MB/s. Using both 10GbE ports simultaneously can boost read speeds up to 2352 MB/s and write speeds up to 2255 MB/s.

Using the external two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, one 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C port, one 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-A port, two 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, and one HDMI port, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other QNAP devices, as well as other external drives and displays. Additionally, the TVS-882ST3 is validated with FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, helping to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.

The TVS-882ST3 8-Bay NAS Enclosure operates on 100-240 VAC, 3.5A, and outputs 250W. It includes two Ethernet cables, a power cord, thirty-two flat head screws for 2.5" drives, and an IR remote control. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.

General Features

Thunderbolt 3 NAS with Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core Processor

Powered by an energy-efficient 6th Generation 14nm 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core processor and dual-channel 8GB DDR4 RAM (upgradable up to 32GB), the TVS-882ST3 provides two Thunderbolt 3 ports along with 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 connectivity as a powerful storage center to accelerate data transfer and performance-demanding workflows. Featuring eight 2.5" drive bays and supporting SATA III 6 Gb/s drives, the TVS-882ST3 is compact and well-suited for using an all-SSD configuration for extreme performance.

Efficient Media Collaboration for Mac and Windows

The TVS-882ST3 is a good match for Thunderbolt 3-capable MacBook Pro systems and is backward-compatible with Mac Pro and iMac systems featuring Thunderbolt 2 via a Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) to Thunderbolt 2 converter. The higher bandwidth is especially suited for creative professionals and enthusiasts from photographers and filmmakers to graphic designers who focus more on 4K or 3D workflows. Final Cut Pro X 10.3 adds support for the SMB protocol, allowing you to easily store files in the TVS-882ST3 and share files with Windows and other devices using Thunderbolt, 10GbE, or 1GbE connections. While up to 2 Thunderbolt devices can connect to the TVS-882ST3 to process real-time video editing simultaneously, the TVS-882ST3 provides a suitable storage solution with performance to increase productivity in multi-workstation environments.

10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Type-C and Type-A

USB 3.1, also known as USB 3.1 Gen 2, provides speeds up to 10 Gb/s - double that of USB 3.0 - to further boost data transfer performance. The TVS-882ST3 comes with one USB 3.1 Type-C port and one USB 3.1 Type-A port, providing greater flexibility and ensuring future-proof compatibility with USB devices. The front USB 3.1 Type-C port provides one-touch copy functionality that allows you to quickly back up files, while the rear USB 3.1 Type-A port is backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 drives.

10GbE 10GBASE-T Connectivity

The TVS-882ST3 provides two Gigabit Ethernet ports and dual-port 10GbE 10GBASE-T connectivity to provide connectivity for conventional and high-speed 10GbE networks, making it especially useful for companies and organizations looking to future proof their IT infrastructure and for users with 10GbE networks to supercharge bandwidth-demanding tasks such as virtualization and intensive backup/restoration.

Access 10GbE Networks via Thunderbolt with Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E)

As Apple computers do not natively support 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Mac users previously needed to purchase a Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter to connect to high-speed Ethernet networks. The Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E) allows computers without Ethernet ports (such as the MacBook Pro) to access 10GbE network resources over a Thunderbolt connection to the TVS-882ST3. This saves users from having to buy adapters or converters and greatly streamlines the connectivity process.

Thunderbolt 3/NAS/iSCSI SAN Triple Solution

The TVS-882ST3 can simultaneously run general Ethernet services in addition to the Thunderbolt 3 network, completely independently and with no bandwidth interference. As an NAS that combines Thunderbolt, NAS, and iSCSI SAN into one box, the TVS-882ST3 prevents the restriction of DAS connecting to only one device and breaks the cost barrier for creating 10GbE high-speed network environments.
Thunderbolt NAS Mode
Simply attach your computer to the TVS-882ST3 with a Thunderbolt 3 cable and you will find the TVS-882ST3 in Finder/File Explorer with accessible shared folders available for you. It is plug-and-use and user-friendly.

Ethernet NAS Mode
The TVS-882ST3 also features Ethernet networking for flexible file sharing across multiple devices simultaneously using SMB/CIFS, AFP, and NFS for sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX networks. Use Qfinder Pro to find the TVS-882ST3 attached to your computer and you can find the Thunderbolt IP and Ethernet IP for file sharing based on your needs.

iSCSI SAN Block-Based Mode
The TVS-882ST3 supports iSCSI SAN configuration, while the Thunderbolt interface can contribute a lot to iSCSI SAN storage performance. After creating an iSCSI target on the TVS-882ST3, you can access the iSCSI with your computer through the Thunderbolt IP.
