QNAP Launches World’s First Thunderbolt 2 Turbo vNAS

QNAP announced the availability of the world’s first Thunderbolt 2 powered Turbo vNAS, the TVS-871T, that features 20Gbps bandwidth and 4K video capabilities through the Thunderbolt 2. The 8-bay NAS unit comes in two version, either with an Intel Core i7 or Intel Core i5 Haswell CPU and 16GB DDR3 memory. The TVS-871T is also compatible with QNAP’s TX-500P and TX-800P expansion enclosures and you can attach up to six of those for a total raw capacity of up to 448TB. With the high transfer speed of DAS and the convenient accessibility of NAS, the TVS-871T is an extremely flexible and efficient storage solution.

“The TVS-871T tackles the most common bottleneck for 4K workflows: I/O speed and storage.” said David Tsao, product manager of QNAP. “It provides unmatched performance for high-resolution file storage and I/O-intensive tasks to increase working productivity focusing more on 4K or 3D workflows.”

The QNAP TS-871T doesn’t just feature 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2, it also has dual 10GbE ethernet ports for an unmatched connectivity as both can run simultaneously for different operations. This Turbo vNAS could very well be the perfect match for Thunderbolt 2-capable Mac systems as 2 workstations can connect to it and process real-time video editing at the same time. Assisting in creative workflows, the TVS-871T delivers powerful and stable throughput for real-time non-linear video editing, and also allows multi-track video editing with the lowest latency. Users can also connect a 4K display to the TVS-871T via HDMI to directly play and organize their 4K videos.

The TVS-871T runs with the latest QTS 4.2 operating system and has the awesome QvPC technology where users can simply connect a keyboard, mouse and HDMI display and use the system as a cost-effective PC substitute. You can use it to directly access stored data, run multiple VMs, surf the web, and much more.
