Advanced Hardware for Greater Efficiency
High-performance hardware, well-designed application functionalities and thoroughly-planned usage scenarios alongside flexible expansion interface are distinctive cornerstones for realizing optimum performance and diverse applications.
M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSD & 2.5" SSD Cache
The TVS-1282T3 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-1282T3 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.
Perfect Storage Trio: Tiered Storage, Application-based Partitioning & Network Traffic Distribution
The advanced hardware design of TVS-1282T3 can facilitate optimized storage deployment based on different usage scenarios.
QNAP's Qtier Technology empowers the TVS-1282T3 with Auto Tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across M.2 SSD, SSD and SATA drives. With Auto Tiering, the TVS-1282T3 can automatically move frequently-used "hot" data to high-performance storage tiers and less-accessed "cold" data to lower-cost, higher-capacity drives, making the TVS-1282T3 an extremely efficient shared resource. Qtier now supports "On Demand Allocation Priority", providing customizable flexibility to arrange tiered storage suited for your system environments and application demands.
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-1282T3 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 GbE ports and two 10GbE ports, the TVS-1282T3 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-1282T3, 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.
4K HDMI Output with a Free Remote Control for an Excellent Audiovisual Experience
The TVS-1282T3 comes with three HDMI ports (4K 30hz output) for using three monitors in either "duplicated" or "extended" desktop configuration*. You can connect the TVS-1282T3 to a HDTV or A/V receiver and use the media player in HybridDesk Station (HD Station) to enjoy rich media content and 4K videos. HD Station supports multi-tasking and user authentication so only authorized users can access the stored data. Besides using the bundled remote control, you can also turn your mobile devices into remote controls by installing the Qremote app to control HD Station. You can customize the actions of individual buttons of your QNAP remote control using QButton. From playing music, to viewing surveillance feeds in Surveillance Station, to shutting down or restarting the NAS, everyday and common tasks can be just a button press away with QButton.
* Linux Station must be installed from the App Center.
Access 10GbE Networks Over 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 innovative Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E) allows computers without Ethernet ports (such as MacBook Pro®) to access 10GbE network resources over a Thunderbolt™ connection to the TVS-1282T3. This saves users from having to buy adapters or converters and greatly streamlines the connectivity process.
Note: T2E transmission speed may be affected when using a virtual switch. QNAP aims to continue improving and optimizing T2E performance.
Thunderbolt™ 3/NAS/iSCSI SAN Triple Solution
The TVS-1282T3 can simultaneously run general Ethernet services in addition to the Thunderbolt™ 3 network, completely independently and with no bandwidth interference. As an unmatched NAS that combines Thunderbolt™, NAS and iSCSI SAN into one box, the TVS-1282T3 prevents the restriction of DAS connecting to only one device, and breaks the cost barrier for creating 10GbE high-speed network environments.
Flexibly Attach, Share, and Expand in 4 ways
With four Thunderbolt™ 3 ports on the TVS-1282T3, you can flexibly arrange the connection of your computer workstations with the TVS-1282T3 and its storage expansion enclosures based on your needs.
A Feature-rich NAS with QTS Operating System
QTS - simple, powerful & intelligent. The intuitive QTS features a modern flat design to help you manage QNAP NAS easily. QTS provides an intelligent desktop, graphical dashboard, drag-n-drop icons and grouped shortcuts to make storage and file management extremely simple. You can even open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater operating efficiency. The built-in App Center contains install-on-demand apps to provide potentially limitless potential for the NAS.
QRM+: Centralized management solution for networked computing devices. QRM+ is QNAP's Centralized Management Solution, designed for IT teams, for networked computing devices. It provides a single-point solution to discover, map, monitor and manage all of the critical computing devices (including servers, PCs, and thin clients) in your network, and facilitates device discovery with the graphical topology diagram. QRM+ supports IPMI 2.0, provides remote KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) for certain IPMI devices, and supports tracking every action using KVM recording and playback. Simply install QRMAgent on your Windows® and Linux® devices and you will see their system status on the QRM+ management interface. With centralized management using QRM+ on the TVS-1282T3, IT infrastructure and device security is enhanced while troubleshooting and network resource performance analysis is greatly simplified.
Integrated virtualization and container solutions. Virtualization Station allows you to host virtual machines (VM) on the TVS-1282T3 and access them via a web browser or VNC. It supports multiple operating systems, fast VM creation, VM backup & restoration, VM import/export, snapshot, and Device Management for centrally managing VMs. The TVS-1282T3 also features Container Station, integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux® systems on the NAS as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry®. Containers Station also supports the QIoT Containers platform that helps quickly structure your IoT environment and deployment on your private IoT cloud.
Flexible Storage Expansion
The TVS-1282T3 supports capacity expansion by connecting up to six Thunderbolt™ storage expansion enclosures. You can gradually expand the TVS-1282T3's storage on demand, and use the QTS Storage Manager to easily handle the NAS capacity expansion and storage expansion enclosure management.
VJBOD: Achieve Optimal Capacity Utilization Across Multiple QNAP NAS
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 the storage capacity of a QNAP NAS with unused storage space from other QNAP NAS. You can mount iSCSI LUNs from a QNAP NAS to the TVS-1282T3 as local disks, and create virtual storage pools and volumes for operating NAS services. 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.
