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.

Tiered Storage

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.

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.

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.

Thunderbolt™ NAS mode

You can directly access files on the TVS-1282T3 on a file-based level. Simply attach your computer to the TVS-1282T3 with a Thunderbolt™ 3 cable, and you will find the TVS-1282T3 in Finder/File Explorer with accessible shared folders available for you. It is plug-and-use, and completely simple.

Ethernet NAS mode

The TVS-1282T3 also features Ethernet networking for flexible file sharing across multiple devices simultaneously using SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS for sharing across Windows®, Mac® and Linux®/UNIX® networks. Use Qfinder Pro to find the TVS-1282T3 attached to your computer, and you can find the Thunderbolt IP and Ethernet IP for file sharing based on your needs.

iSCSI SAN block-based mode

The TVS-1282T3 supports iSCSI SAN configuration, while the Thunderbolt™ interface can contribute a lot to iSCSI SAN storage performance. After creating an iSCSI target on the TVS-1282T3, you can access the iSCSI with your computer through Thunderbolt IP.

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.
