QNAP introduces new 10GbE and Thunderbolt 3 NAS series

07 Dec 2018

QNAP systems released the new TVS-x72XT NAS series, powered by 8th Gen Intel Core processors with both 10GBASE-T and Thunderbolt 3 high-bandwidth connectivity for tackling heavy workloads and smoothly transferring, displaying and editing 4K videos in real-time. 

By supporting M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs and graphics cards, the TVS-x72XT series provides the ability to boost performance and create a scalable working environment for high-speed file sharing and collaboration.

“The TVS-x72XT series features quality hardware and excellent performance with multiple 10GBASE-T and Thunderbolt 3 ports to provide workstations with high-capacity and high-throughput storage,” said David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP.

“The TVS-x72XT series is also an exceptional storage base for iMac Pro users as they can flexibly choose between Thunderbolt 3 and 10GbE connections to suit their application and device needs.”

This includes models with 4, 6, and 8 drive bays, and features 8th Gen Intel Core processors with AES-NI encryption and Intel UHD Graphics 630 that enables triple-channel 4K H.264 hardware decoding and real-time transcoding. 

Flexible PCIe expandability supposedly allows users to install an entry-level graphics card to accelerate NAS video processing and GPU computing, or a QNAP QM2 card to add M.2 SSD caching or additional 10GbE (10GBASE-T) connectivity to the NAS.

Featuring a 5-speed 10GBASE-T Multi-Gig port (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M) and two Thunderbolt 3 ports, the TVS-x72XT series presents an ideal collaborative 4K media editing platform for both Mac and Windows users, allowing sharing of large media files. 

The TVS-x72XT series also provides HDMI 2.0 output, supporting 4K (3840 x 2160) at 60Hz, providing great benefits for applications that demand on-image resolution and colour realism, and allowing the direct playback of NAS-based multimedia content.

It supposedly supports SSD caching and provides two M.2 SSD slots for installing PCIe (Gen 3 x2) NVMe SSDs with 2280 form factors (M.2 SSDs are sold separately) for boosting IOPS-demanding applications. 

Users can also take advantage of software-defined SSD extra over-provisioning (between 1% and 60%) to attain optimal SSD performance and SSD lifespan. Coupled with QNAP's Qtier technology that empowers the NAS with auto-tiering, storage efficiency is optimised constantly across M.2 SSDs, 2.5-inch SSDs, and high-capacity HDDs with improved overall system performance.

The scalable TVS-x72XT series is supposedly an all-in-one NAS solution for file storage, backup, sharing, synchronisation and centralised management.
