Powered by an 8th generation Intel Pentium Gold processor, the high-performance TVS-472XT NAS features both 10GBASE-T and Thunderbolt™ 3 high-bandwidth connectivity for tackling heavy workloads and smoothly transferring, displaying and editing 4K videos in real-time. With M.2 SSD support and the ability to install a graphics card, the TVS-472XT provides the ability to boost performance and create a scalable working environment for collaboration and high-speed file sharing. The TVS-472XT is driven by high-quality hardware that delivers optimum performance, comprehensive multimedia features, expandable storage capacity, and numerous other NAS functionalities to inspire greater creativity and accomplishments!
- High-speed Thunderbolt™ 3 with SMB protocol, allowing Mac® and Windows® users to collaborate on media editing.
- 5-speed 10GBASE-T RJ45 connectivity accelerates virtualization applications and file sharing across teams and devices.
- PCIe expandability allows for graphics cards or 40GbE/ 25GbE/ 10GbE adapters to increase application performance.
- Install M.2 PCIe (Gen 3 x2, 2 GB/s) NVMe SSDs (sold separately) to set up caching or storage pools, improving file access efficiency.
- 4K media playback and real-time transcoding; directly view creative works on an HDTV via HDMI 2.0 (4K @60Hz) output.
- Snapshots fully record system status and data, allowing you to protect files and data from accidental deletion and malware attacks.
Fast and flexible Thunderbolt™ 3 and 10GBASE-T connectivity
The TVS-472XT adopts the powerful 8th generation Intel® Pentium® Gold G5400T dual-core 3.1 GHz processor with 4 GB dual-channel DDR4 memory (upgradable to 32 GB) to deliver outstanding performance. It provides two Gigabit and one 5-speed 10GBASE-T port (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M), supports SATA 6Gb/s drives, and features AES-NI encryption for delivering high performance while also maintaining the security of your data. You can also connect USB Type-C devices through the Thunderbolt™ 3 ports to transfer large media files across devices, providing you with a more efficient workflow.
Note: Mac OS 10.11.5 (and later) enables SMB signing by default, which may impact the connection speed to the NAS. To improve the connection speed, users can disable SMB signing or use Qfinder Pro to connect to the NAS.
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.
Accelerate NAS video processing and empower GPGPU tasks. GPUs can also be passed-through to virtual machines.
QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE cards
Add M.2 SSD caching or 10GbE (10GBASE-T) connectivity to the NAS for optimized performance and bandwidth.
10GbE/ 40GbE adapters
Enable lightning-fast throughput for bandwidth-demanding tasks such as virtualization, massive data transmission, and fast backup/restoration.
Wireless network cards
Use the QNAP QWA-AC2600 wireless adapter with WirelessAP Station to transform the TVS-472XT into a convenient wireless base station, allowing network resources of the NAS to be shared with multiple devices.
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).
Improve random data access speeds with an SSD cache
SSD caches accelerate IOPS performance and reduce latency for storage volumes. They are perfect for IOPS-demanding applications (including databases and virtualization) and can significantly improve overall workflows.
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.
