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-1282 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-1282 can facilitate optimized storage deployment based on different usage scenarios.
QNAP's Qtier Technology empowers the TVS-1282 with Auto Tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across PCIe NVMe SSD, M.2 SSD, SSD and SATA drives. With Auto Tiering, the TVS-1282 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-1282 an extremely efficient shared resource. Businesses will no longer have to invest heavily in expensive Flash technology, but can still enjoy exceptional application performance and cost efficiency from Auto Tiering with the TVS-1282.
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-1282 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 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the TVS-1282 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-1282, 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.
450W power supply fuels GPU passthrough
Graphics cards are optimized for graphical calculations and transformations, but require significantly more power compared to other hardware. The TVS-1282 offers an option with a 450 watt power supply that is capable of powering an AMD Radeon™ R7 Series or RX 480 graphics card for smooth GPU passthough to virtual machines.Note: Only TVS-882 and TVS-1282 provides an option with 450W power supply.
Three HDMI outputs - switch between HD Station and Linux desktop
The TVS-1282 comes with three HDMI outputs for using three monitors in either "duplicated" or "extended" desktop configuration. Duplicating will display the same content on every display, and extended desktop mode allows users to display applications across the displays for improved multitasking convenience and productivity. When displaying content using HDMI, you can use the TVS-1282 as an amazing multimedia player by using HD Station to enjoy rich apps including Plex Home Theater, Google Chrome™, Mozilla Firefox®, and more. Alternatively, you can choose to output the Linux® operating system desktop to use the TVS-1282 as a PC.Note: To use Linux Station, please install it from the App Center from firmware QTS 4.2.1.
Seamless capacity expansion via SAS or USB interface
The TVS-1282 supports online capacity expansion by connecting multiple high-performance SAS-enabled QNAP RAID expansion enclosures or economical USB 3.0 expansion units to meet the needs of growing business data. The total storage capacity of the TVS-1282 can be gradually expanded and easily managed by the QTS Storage Manager, being useful for large data applications such as video surveillance, data archiving, and TV broadcast storage, and more.
The maximum raw storage capacity available by connecting QNAP expansion enclosures:
|QNAP NAS Model
|RAID Expansion Enclosure
|No. of RAID Expansion Enclosure
|Total HDD No. (NAS + Enclosure)
|Max. Raw Capacity (TB)*
*The maximum capacity is calculated by using 8TB HDDs.
**To support UX-500P and UX-800P, QTS 4.2.0 (or later) firmware is required. Please create a separate static volume or storage pool on the UX expansion unit to expand the NAS storage space.
Use NAS to expand NAS capacity with Virtual JBOD
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 storage of your QNAP NAS with multiple QNAP NAS units. You can mount iSCSI LUNs from a QNAP NAS to the TVS-1282 as local disks, and create virtual storage pools and volumes for operating NAS functionalities, such as creating and reverting snapshots, indexing multimedia files into the media library, and even further creating iSCSI LUNs. With VJBOD, you can centrally utilize the storage space from multiple QNAP NAS units* and manage it with the interface on the local NAS. 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.
QTS - simple and powerful
The intuitive QTS features a modern flat design to streamline loading times, and its intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater operating efficiency.
QRM+: Centralized Remote Server Management Solution
QRM+ is QNAP's Centralized Remote Server Management solution designed for IT teams. It provides a web-based solution - accessible from any web browser - to discover, map, monitor and manage all of the critical computing devices on the network such as servers, PCs, embedded PCs, and thin clients from a single-point.
