Extend NAS functionality with a graphics card and other PCIe devices: The TVS-472XT features two PCIe Gen 3 slots (the first slot is pre-installed with a Thunderbolt™ 3 card) that allow for the usage of various expansion cards to expand application potential, including graphics cards, QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE cards, 10GbE/40GbE adapters, and wireless network cards.
Obtain performance benefits from M.2 SSD caching: Besides using 2.5-inch SSDs for caching, you can utilize the two M.2 SSD slots built in to the TVS-472XT for installing PCIe (Gen 3 x2, 2 GB/s) NVMe SSDs with 2280 form factors (M.2 SSDs are sold separately). This can improve random data access speeds with an SSD cache.
Maximize the value of SSDs with Qtier Technology: Qtier™ Technology empowers the TVS-472XT with auto tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency by automatically moving data between M.2 SSDs, 2.5-inch SSDs, and high-capacity HDDs based on the data's 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.
Potentially attain performance and endurance levels similar to enterprise-grade SSDs: With SSD prices continuing to become more affordable, there's never been a better time for using SSDs in your NAS to enjoy higher performance, faster file backups, smoother multimedia experiences, and optimized virtualization applications. From QTS 4.3.5, you can benefit from software-defined SSD RAID extra over-provisioning (OP) that enables you to allocate additional OP space (from 1% to 60%) to optimize random write speeds and to extend SSD lifespan. Now you can use affordable consumer SSDs for the TVS-472XT, adjust the SSD OP, and potentially attain performance and endurance levels similar to enterprise-grade SSDs.
Complete backup planning: The TVS-472XT provides a reliable, flexible backup & disaster recovery solution to assist organizations in routine backup jobs with cost-efficiency and high productivity. It supports Windows and Mac backup, hybrid backup sync, snapshots for volume & LUN, VM backup, and a high-speed VM Backup Solution called Hyper Data Protector.
Optimized collaboration with seamless file sharing and sync: The TVS-472XT 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, any file uploaded to the TVS-472XT will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops, or mobile devices. You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration.
All-in-one server to host virtual machines and containers: Virtualization Station and Container Station jointly introduce a hybrid approach to virtualization, allowing you to run multiple Windows, Linux, UNIX, and Android virtual machines and access them via a web browser or VNC. It also supports LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies.
Flexible and economical storage expansion: QNAP provides several ways to expand your NAS storage as needed to accommodate data and business growth, including upgrading RAID capacity, attaching expansion enclosures, using VJBOD (Virtual JBOD), and migrating to a new NAS.
Switch to QuTS hero operating system for optimal data integrity and reliability: The TVS-472XT also supports QuTS hero - QNAP’s ZFS-based NAS operating system, which provides end-to-end data integrity, data reduction, and other features.
Extend hardware warranty up to 5 years: The TVS-472XT is backed by a 2-year warranty at no extra cost. If needed, you can purchase a warranty extension that increases your coverage up to 5 years.
