Build a budget-friendly 10GbE environment
The TVS-x72X series has two Gigabit ports and one 10GBASE-T Multi-Gig (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M) port for high-speed networking to satisfy bandwidth-demanding applications (including virtualization, massive file transfer, high-speed backup/restoration, and multimedia transmission). QNAP’s managed and unmanaged 10GbE switches are a perfect match for organizations to build budget-friendly high-speed networks for productive team collaboration. The TVS-x72X series also includes four USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports with up to 10Gb/s transfer speeds, allowing compatibility with newer, faster USB drives/expansion enclosures for transferring large media files.
Get performance benefits from SSD caching and Qtier Technology
To attain optimal I/O and reduce latency, you can configure SSD caching by using either 2.5-inch SSDs or two M.2 NVMe 2280 SSDs (sold separately) in the TVS-x72X series NAS. Extra M.2 SSD slots can also be added by installing QM2 PCIe cards, allowing you to configure your M.2 SSDs in a RAID 5/6 array to achieve higher sequential speed or a read-only cache speed similar to the performance of a RAID 10 array while maintaining high storage efficiency.
Direct 4K HDMI output for multimedia and virtual machines
The TVS-x72X series features Intel® UHD Graphics 630 that supports hardware decoding and real-time transcoding. The HDMI 2.0 output supports up to 4K (3840 x 2160p) @60Hz, providing great benefits for applications like video production/editing or industrial design that demands high resolution and color realism as well as intensive media storage, transfer and display. By connecting the TVS-x72X series to an HDMI display, you can operate virtual machines from Virtualization Station or Ubuntu Linux Station, or directly watch multimedia content saved on the NAS. QNAP's HD Station also allows users to directly enjoy multimedia using HD Player or third-party players like Plex® Home Theater.
Protect your data with higher security
The TVS-x72X series is loaded with comprehensive security features to keep your data safe.
- QuFirewall for network security: Supports IPv6, firewall access lists, and GeoIP filtering to restrict access upon the geographical location for higher network security.
- WPA2 Enterprise: Provides enterprise-grade wireless security for business networks, including certificate authority, encryption key, and enhanced encryption/decryption.
- Security Counselor: A security portal that checks for weaknesses and offers recommendations for enhancing NAS security. It also integrates anti-virus and anti-malware scanning software.
A secure file center supporting regular backups and snapshot protection
The TVS-x72X series provides a reliable, flexible backup and disaster recovery solution to simplify routine backup jobs cost-efficiently and with high productivity.
HBS simplifies 3-2-1 backup plans
HBS centralizes backup, restoration, and synchronization for easily backing up Windows® and Mac® data and transferring data in the TVS-x72X series to another QNAP NAS, remote server, or cloud storage space. HBS supports QuDedup technology that eliminates redundant data at the source and makes multi-version backup faster.
Snapshots multiply backup protection
Block-level snapshots are dependable data protection methods, especially in the face of growing ransomware threats. The TVS-x72X series supports up to 256 snapshots per volume/LUN, and up to 1,024 snapshots per NAS.
All-in-one virtual machine and container hosting solution
You can count on Virtualization Station and Container Station for comprehensive virtualization support. Coupled with the Network & Virtual Switch app that boosts interoperability between virtual machines, containers, QNAP NAS, and other networked devices, you can flexibly allocate physical and virtual network resources to simplify network deployment.
Run multiple Windows®, Linux®, UNIX®, Android™, and QuTScloud virtual machines and access them via a web browser or Virtual Network Computing (VNC). Businesses can run virtualized server applications on a single NAS without the need for additional physical servers.
Experience LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry®, import and export containers, and create abundant microservices.
License-free VMware® and Hyper-V backup appliance
With Hyper Data Protector, the TVS-x72X series NAS becomes an agentless backup tool for unlimited VMware® vSphere and Microsoft® Hyper-V VM backup. Hyper Data Protector features incremental backup, global deduplication, backup scheduling and recovery compression. Hyper Data Protector also simultaneously backs up multiple VMs, providing you with a cost-effective and reliable disaster recovery plan, ensuring 24/7 operation of your services.
Optimized collaboration with seamless file sharing and sync
The TVS-x72X series centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® networks. Coupled with the Qsync utility, any file uploaded to the TVS-x72X series NAS will become available for all linked devices (such as computers, laptops and mobiles). You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. The support of Azure Active Directory Domain Services (Azure AD DS), Windows AD® and LDAP services assist system administrators in managing user accounts and permissions for multiple NAS devices with greater efficiency.
Build an affordable Fibre Channel SAN environment
Common Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks (SAN) devices are often costly. By installing QNAP dual-port 16Gb/32Gb Fibre Channel expansion cards in the TVS-x72X series NAS, you have more budget-friendly options to add a NAS to a SAN environment. You can set a Fibre Channel Target using the iSCSI & Fibre Channel app. Moreover, the LUN Masking and Port Binding features provide an additional layer of data security.
Flexible and economical storage expansion
The storage capacity of the TVS-x72X series NAS can be expanded using USB-based expansion enclosures or connecting SATA 6Gb/s JBOD units with the PCIe-based QXP storage expansion cards. NAS storage expansion management is made easy with the user-friendly Storage & Snapshots Manager app.
