The TVS-h1288X/TVS-h1688X is equipped with four 2.5-inch SATA SSD bays and two M.2 NVMe Gen 3 x4 SSD bays.  The latter of which allow for SSD caching for increased IOPS performance and a reduced storage volume latency. Their built-in dual-port 10GBASE-T network card, four native 2.5GbE ports, and support for Port Trunking and failover make for an affordable managed/unmanaged 10GbE/2.5GbE switches.

In addition, the PCIe Gen 3 x4 slots allow users to add even more flexibility to the TVS-h1288X/TVS-h1688X NAS solutions. This includes two QXP-T32P Thunderbolt 3 expansion cards, which allow users to connect up to four Thunderbolt-equipped workstations for better efficiency in 4K workflows, file storage, backup, and sharing. Users can also add:

  • 5GbE/10GbE/25GbE/40GbE network cards
  • 32Gbps/16Gbps Fibre Channel cards
  • QM2 cards to add M.2 SSDs or 10GbE (10GBASE-T) ports
  • QXP storage expansion cards to connect QNAP JBOD units
  • Graphics cards (leveraging the 550W power supply unit) to supercharge video editing/transcoding or enable GPU passthrough to virtual machines

Moreover, its direct HDMI output supports up to 4K @30Hz, giving creative users the ability to to demonstrate their work without the need of a separate computer.
