QNAP TVS-872N-i3-8G-US 8-Bay NAS Enclosure
Follow the Wi-Fi 6 trends and upgrade to a 5GbE/2.5GbE NAS
As more laptops and access points support the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard, wireless bandwidth has greatly increased to 5GbE/2.5GbE, delivering much faster speeds than conventional Gigabit connections. Don’t let your NAS hinder your user experience – add a TVS-872N to your network environment to enhance your storage and access experience. You can also add 5GbE connectivity to your laptop with an affordable QNAP USB 3.0 to 5GbE adapter (QNA-UC5G1T) and directly connect to the TVS-872N to benefit from higher network speeds.
Get Performance Benefits from SSD Caching and Qtier Technology
In addition to using 2.5-inch SSDs for caching, you can utilize the two built-in M.2 SSD slots in the TVS-872N for installing PCIe (Gen 3 x2, 2 GB/s) NVMe SSDs with 2280 form factors (M.2 SSDs are sold separately). You can also add extra M.2 SSDs with a QM2 card and leverage QNAP SSD technologies to improve NAS performance.
Improve Random Data Access Speeds with an SSD Cache
SSD caches accelerate IOPS performance and reduce latency for storage volumes. They are perfect for IOPS-demanding applications (including databases and virtualization) and can significantly improve overall workflow.
Maximize the Value of SSDs with Qtier Technology
Qtier™ technology empowers the TVS-872N with auto-tiering, which helps optimize storage efficiency by automatically moving data between M.2 SSDs, 2.5-inch SSDs, and high-capacity HDDs based on data access frequency. Qtier™ 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD-tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSDs.
Freely Remove Qtier’s SSD RAID Tier
You can flexibly remove an SSD from an SSD RAID group to change or add SSDs, or change SSD RAID type or SSD type (SATA, M.2, QM2) when needed to enhance storage auto-tiering efficiency.
Install a QM2 Card and Enable SSD Caching to Optimize Performance
The TVS-872N features two PCIe Gen3 slots, allowing you to install M.2 SSDs by via QM2 expansion cards, in addition to the M.2 SSDs (sold separately) installed in the built-in M.2 SSD slots. You can configure a RAID 5/6 array to achieve a higher sequential speed or read-only cache speed similar to the performance of a RAID 10 array while maintaining higher storage efficiency.
Deduplicating Data at the Source Cuts Time and Storage Space for Multi-Version Backup
HBS consolidates backup, restoration, and synchronization into a single QTS app, easily transferring your data to local, remote, and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan. With QuDedup technology that deduplicates the data at the source, the efficiency of backing up multiple versions to the destination storage is significantly improved while optimizing storage utilization. In the event of accidental data loss, HBS can also help you quickly restore your data.
Low Latency Access to Cloud Data with Cloud Storage Gateways
The TVS-872N perfectly integrates NAS with mainstream cloud services. By deploying cloud storage gateways and enabling local caching on the NAS, you can seamlessly use the cloud for storage, backup, and data recovery with low-latency access, providing an innovative hybrid cloud experience.
Ultimate Visual Experience with 4K HDMI Output and Viewing on Mobile Devices
The TVS-872N has an HDMI 2.0 port that supports 4K (3840 x 2160) 60Hz output, providing higher resolution and color realism for greater media entertainment. By connecting the TVS-872N to an HDTV via the HDMI output, you can directly view multimedia content saved on the NAS on a bigger screen. You can also download and install versatile multimedia apps from Ubuntu® Software Center through QNAP Linux Station. QNAP's HD Station also allows users to directly enjoy multimedia using HD Player or third-party players like Plex® Home Theater. Featuring advanced Intel® UHD Graphics 630, the TVS-872N provides high-quality 4K (H.264) video transcoding, and you can easily convert videos to universal file formats that can be smoothly played on multiple devices*.
*The TVS-872N’s hardware provides H.264 hardware decoding, encoding, and transcoding capabilities. However, playback quality may vary due to factors including playback software, file formats, system usage, and available bandwidth.
Safeguard Your Environment with QVR Pro
QNAP’s QVR Pro surveillance solution allows you to arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the TVS-872N and leverage the advantages of scalable storage. QVR Pro greatly simplifies camera management, storage space allocation, camera live view, and playback. You can also use USB webcams as network cameras with the QUSBCam2 app to remotely monitor your surveillance feeds any time with QVR Pro Client’s companion mobile app.
Easy Photo Management with QuMagie-Enabled AI Automated Photo Categorization
QuMagie brings you a brand-new photo management experience. By integrating an AI deep-learning algorithm, QuMagie enables facial recognition, object identification, and geography tagging of photos on your NAS. Similar photos are grouped together in the AI Albums (i.e., People, Things, and Places). Other useful features include a built-in timeline scroll, customizable folder covers, and a powerful search tool, providing you with the ultimate photo management and sharing solution.
Protect Data with Snapshots
Snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. If a file is accidentally deleted or modified, you can use snapshots from Storage & Snapshots Manager or File Station to quickly restore files to their previously recorded state. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record modified data. Not only does this save storage space, but it also reduces the time required to back up and restore data. The TVS-872N supports up to 256 snapshots per volume/LUN and up to 1,024 snapshots in total.
Optimized Collaboration with Seamless File Sharing and Sync
The TVS-872N centrally stores data and files and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP, and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® networks. Coupled with Qsync, a QNAP NAS utility that transforms your NAS into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization, any file uploaded to the TVS-872N will be made available to all linked devices, such as computers, laptops, and mobile devices. You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. Files can be centrally managed using File Station, including files from mobile devices and optical disc drives.
All-In-One Server to Host Virtual Machines and Containers
Virtualization Station and Container Station jointly introduce a hybrid approach to virtualization. No matter your virtualization needs, you can count on QNAP for complete virtualization support.
