Product Information

The TVS-1282T features advanced hardware by adopting 6th Generation Intel® 14nm multi-core processors and was designed around the concept of tiered storage, application-based partitioning and network traffic distribution. Providing a Thunderbolt DAS/NAS/iSCSI SAN triple solution, the TVS-1282T delivers the incredible power of Thunderbolt™ 2 to double the speed potential to 20 Gbps, supports smooth 4K video transfer, and is a perfect match for Thunderbolt-equipped Mac* users for 4K workflows, file storage and high-speed sharing. Incorporating reliability, security and rich applications, the TVS-1282T delivers the highest transfer rates ever as storage with persistent throughput, and provides a complete business-ready storage solution.

Thunderbolt™ 2 NAS, extraordinary performance

The TVS-1282T provides two options powered by a high-performance Intel® Core™ i5 quad-core processor with 16GB DDR4 RAM and Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor with 64GB DDR4 RAM, driving outstanding system performance for CPU-demanding applications. Offering a comprehensive DAS/NAS/iSCSI SAN multi-mode storage solution in a compact form factor, the TVS-1282T not only features Thunderbolt™ 2 technology but also has dual 10GbE ports giving you incredible flexibility for network connectivity.

Note: Thunderbolt cables are not included as standard. Users must purchase Thunderbolt cables separately.

M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSD & 2.5" SSD cache

The TVS-1282T provides 4 SSD slots dedicated for caching to increase IOPS performance, and provides higher transfer speeds and reliability with the compact, energy-efficient M.2 SSD. Using an SSD cache boosts overall system performance, and is perfect for improving overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as virtualization. The TVS-1282T combines M.2 SSD, 2.5" SSD and HDD in one box to effectively realize tiered storage for exceptional application performance and lower TCO of storage at the same time.

Application-based Partitioning

Every application requires different performance. For example, Surveillance Station requires higher-priority access to storage to ensure the integrity of recordings, while normal transmission speeds are sufficient for file sharing. However, when multiple applications are running on the same storage media, the required throughput level cannot be guaranteed as the storage media is busy handling I/O requests from all of them. The TVS-1282T supports three different types of storage media: M.2, SSD and SATA hard drives, and they can be configured as independent partitions for different applications, ensuring a sufficient throughput level for every application.

Network Traffic Distribution

With four 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports and two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the TVS-1282T allows applications to use dedicated interfaces to meet network traffic distribution requirements. Network interfaces can also be easily managed with the Network & Virtual Switch app, which enables optimized network resources for TVS-1282T, virtual machines and containerized apps. No matter if they are business organizations or individual users, they can effortlessly manage network connections by using the Network & Virtual Switch.

Use NAS to expand NAS capacity with Virtual JBOD

Besides using physical storage expansion enclosures, there is an additional option to expand NAS storage capacity. QNAP VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) is network-based JBOD, allowing you to expand storage of your QNAP NAS with multiple QNAP NAS units. You can mount iSCSI LUNs from a QNAP NAS to the TVS-1282T as local disks, and create virtual storage pools and volumes for operating NAS functionalities, such as creating and reverting snapshots, indexing multimedia files into the media library, and even further creating iSCSI LUNs. With VJBOD, you can centrally utilize the storage space from multiple QNAP NAS units* and manage it with the interface on the local NAS. VJBOD supports 10GbE/40GbE Ethernet connection interface and port trunking (link aggregation with multiple LAN ports) that increase the performance and reliability of your VJBOD storage.

*The remote QNAP NAS must support iSCSI and Storage Pools and use QTS 4.2.1 (or newer). Up to 8 remote NAS units can be mounted.

Ideal for Thunderbolt-equipped Mac users

The TVS-1282T is a perfect match for Thunderbolt 2-capable Macs like Mac Pro®, MacBook Pro® and iMac®, and is especially suited for creative professionals and enthusiasts from photographers, filmmakers to graphic designers who focus more on 4K or 3D workflows. Up to 2 Thunderbolt devices can connect to the TVS-1282T to process real-time video editing simultaneously without sacrificing the TVS-1282T's performance, while 4K videos can be directly displayed on through the TVS-1282T's HDMI ports. Coupled with its large capacity, the TVS-1282T provides an ideal storage solution, is hot-pluggable and easy to move between your Mac computers, and provides unmatched performance for high-resolution file storage and I/O-intensive tasks to increase your productivity.
