The TVS-1282 features enhanced hardware by adopting powerful processors and was designed around the concept of tiered storage, application-based partitioning and network traffic distribution. Featuring PCIe Gen.3 slots that can support 10 GbE/40GbE NIC, PCIe NVMe SSD, graphics cards, and USB 3.1 expansion cards, the TVS-1282 also supports smooth 4K 60 fps video transfer and display, cross-platform file sharing, comprehensive backup and disaster recovery, iSCSI & virtualization and more business applications. Incorporating reliability and security, the TVS-1282 presents an ideal choice for a complete business-ready storage solution.
The TVS-1282 is powered by high-performance processors, increasing system performance by 20% - 30% compared with previous generations. It greatly enhances the efficiency of CPU-demanding applications such as virtualization, real-time 4K video playback, and serving large numbers of simultaneous connections.
Enhanced hardware for greater efficiency
High-performance hardware, well-designed application functionalities and thoroughly-planned usage scenarios are three distinctive cornerstones for achieving optimum performance.
M.2 SATA 6 Gb/s SSD & 2.5" SSD cache
The TVS-1282 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-1282 combines M.2 SSD, 2.5" SSD and HDD in one box to effectively realize tiered storage for high application performance and lower TCO of storage at the same time.
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 high application performance and cost efficiency from Auto Tiering with the TVS-1282.
450 W power supply fuels GPU pass through
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 R9 series graphics card for smooth GPU pass through to virtual machines.
HDMI 2.0 for playing 4K 60 fps videos
The TVS-1282 features three HDMI ports, including one HDMI 2.0 port for smoothly playing Ultra HD 4K (4096 x 2304) videos. You can connect the TVS-1282 to a TV or A/V receiver and use the powerful Kodi media player in HD Station with the QNAP remote control to enjoy rich media content and 4K 60 fps videos with the best audiovisual experience. Featuring Intel HD Graphics, the TVS-1282 delivers superior real-time 4K (H.264) and 1080p video transcoding to convert videos to universal formats that can be smoothly played on PCs, mobile devices and Smart TVs.
Three HDMI outputs
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 Kodi, HD Player, Plex Home Theater, YouTube, Spotify, JRiver, 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.
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.
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 10 GbE/40 GbE 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.
Storage for hosting virtual machines and containerized applications
Virtualization Station allows you to host virtual machines (VM) on the TVS-1282 and access them via a web browser or VNC. Virtualization Station supports multiple operating systems, fast VM creation, VM backup & restoration, VM import/export, snapshot, and Device Management for centrally managing VM. Virtualization Station allows the TVS-1282 and VMs to share the same LAN port. No longer constrained by physical network performance, high-speed virtual switches greatly increases data transfer between VMs as well as between VMs and NAS through the internal interface. An AMD Radeon R7/ R9 Series graphics card can also be installed into the TVS-1282's PCIe slot for GPU pass through to virtual machines, greatly boosting the computational and rendering power of virtualized applications.
