Powered by a high-performance Intel® Haswell processor with options including Core™ i5 and Core™ i7, the TVS-871T not only features Thunderbolt 2 technology but also has dual 10GbE ports built-in giving you incredible flexibility to deliver incredible performance.
Note: Thunderbolt cable is not included in packaging. Users have to purchase Thunderbolt cable separately.


Thunderbolt/Ethernet dual network
The Thunderbolt 2 protocol uses industry standard networking technologies meaning the high-speed transmission over your Thunderbolt 2 cable is able to run all network services (such as file sharing, FTP and other services). The TVS-871T can also simultaneously run general Ethernet services in addition to the Thunderbolt 2 network, completely independently and with no bandwidth interference. You can flexibly allocate proper bandwidth for different concurrent tasks.

Pioneering DAS/NAS/ iSCSI-SAN triple solution
The TVS-871T is an unmatched Thunderbolt 2 NAS that combines DAS, NAS and iSCSI-SAN into one box. It prevents the restriction of DAS connecting to only one device, and breaks the cost barrier for constructing 10GbE high-speed network environments. The TVS-871T Thunderbolt 2 NAS dramatically redefines the private cloud, combining the best of DAS and NAS.

DAS file-based mode
You can directly access files on the TVS-871T on a file-based level. Simply attach your Mac computer to the TVS-871T with the Thunderbolt 2 cable, and you will find the TVS-871T in Finder with accessible shared folders available for you. It is plug-and-use, and completely simple.

The block-based and file-based DAS are all directly attached to the host (e.g. Mac Pro) via Thunderbolt 2 cable. When connecting a block-based DAS to the host, the host will identify the block-based DAS as a disk and the host will find many shared folders after connecting to the file-based mode DAS. The shared folders in the file-based DAS can be mounted in multiple hosts for real time sharing.

Thunderbolt/Ethernet NAS mode
The TVS-871T features Thunderbolt & Ethernet dual networking for flexible file sharing across multiple devices simultaneously, using SMB/CIFS, NFS and AFP protocols for sharing across Windows, Mac and Linux/UNIX networks. Use Qfinder to find the TVS-871T attached to your computer, and you can find Thunderbolt IP and Ethernet IP for file sharing based on your needs.

iSCSI SAN block-based mode
The TVS-871T supports iSCSI SAN configuration, while the Thunderbolt interface can contributes a lot to iSCSI SAN storage performance. After creating an iSCSI target on the TVS-871T, you can access the iSCSI with your computer* through Thunderbolt IP.

*iSCSI initiator for Mac: ATTO Xtend SAN or SNS globalSAN; for Windows: Microsoft iSCSI initiator

Seamless storage expansion
The TVS-871T supports capacity expansion by connecting up to six Thunderbolt 2 storage expansion enclosures. You can gradually expand the TVS-871T’s storage on demand, and use the QTS Storage Manager to easily handle the NAS capacity expansion and storage expansion enclosure management.

The maximum raw storage capacity available by connecting a QNAP expansion enclosure:

Additionally, you can also take advantage of the built-in 10GbE LAN card for multi-device file sharing over a 10GbE network, providing the potential to utilize 20Gb and 10Gb network bandwidth at the same time!

Optimal collaboration (Mac+Mac)
When using two workstations to work together to speed up a project, then you can connect each workstation separately to the Thunderbolt 2 ports on the TVS-871T. Both workstations can enjoy 20Gb/s high speed for simultaneous video editing.

Dividing resources (Mac+NAS)
Large-sized video production studios often require multiple servers to increase productivity with different workflow stages, such as capturing, editing, production, post-production, and dubbing. In this situation it can be helpful to daisy chain an additional 6 units of TVS-871T to the original TVS-871T and arrange each NAS for dedicated workflow stages, while the other Thunderbolt 2 port is connected to the workstation for smoothly accessing large-sized video files.

Meanwhile, each TVS-871T allows file sharing with multiple devices through Gigabit or 10 Gigabit Ethernet network.

Is there a difference between network drive, backup drive, network hard drive and nas drive?

There is no physical difference between a network drive, backup drive, network hard drive and NAS drive, the MAIN difference is about the use of the equipment. So:

A Network Drive is a area on storage that is useable to anyone on the network and will be visible to the device you are using if you have the correct login/password.

A Backup Drive is a storage device is a area of NAS or DAS storage that is used JUST for backups and only for writing, not reading - it backs up one or multiple devices on a regular basis.


A Network Hard Drive is the same as a network drive, but instead of a portion of online storage that is network/internet accessible, it is an entire disk drive. Much larger and often includes a RAID drive acting as a fall-back.

A NAS Drive can do all of the above. It can be set up to be a backup drive for all your devices, it can make either a portion or ALL of the storage available over the internet or network, it can do all of these at the same time and can give you much, much more access options thanks to NAS software from the likes of QNAP, Synology, WD, Asustor, Buffalo and Drobo.

What is a server at home?

A server at home is a network attached storage device (NAS) that is like a computer, but with the emphasis on storage space. They can be purchased for as little as £100 and mean all your data can be accessed, used and backed up to and from overt the internet or your home network (WiFi etc). Bigger and more expensive home servers can do more, such as virtual computers, surveillance recording and multimedia access.

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
What is meant by diskless NAS?

A Diskless NAS means that it a network storage device that is sold without any Hard Drives inside. Many NAS Brands like WD and Buffalo will only sell their NAS server devices with Drives already installed - this can often increase the price significantly, as well as limit the Hard Drives you want to install. A diskless NAS is a device that you can choose which drives, how many and the capacity you want and install them yourself, for a more bespoke NAS storage device. Installing the Hard Drives is very easy and you can often save a lot of time and improve your long term storage by choosing a diskless NAS and selecting the drives yourself.

What is a NAS external hard drive?

A NAS external Hard Drive is an external storage device that, unlike USB 3.0 and eSATA external Hard Drives, is accessed used the internet or your home network. So that means you can access the contents (DATA) of the NAS on your iPhone, iPad, Smart TV, PS4, XBOX One, Sonos Sound System, Bose system, Laptop, Smartphone and pretty much any DLNA enabled device without having to connect to it with a cable. Meaning you do not need to carry duplicates of all your data on all your devices, but can have one central NAS storage devices that all the other devices can access.

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
How do I connect to my NAS remotely?

You can connect to your NAS server remotely with the mobile applications that are free with your NAS Brand manufacturer for iOS and Android. Alternatively you can use a number of desktop applications from the big brands QNAP and Synology NAS to access your device remotely. Lastly you can create a network and internet accessible drive with iSCSI and then setup software (Virtual Machine, backup, Surveillance and more) on your Mac or Windows machine to read and write to the NAS remotely.

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
What is a NAS drive used for?

Apple Time Machine Backups
Synchronized Backups of Windows and Android devices
A Plex Media Server

What are the different types of RAID?

The most popular and recommended RAID levels for a 2-Bay NAS and 4-Bay NAS from Synology and QNAP are:

RAID 0 - Meaning all drive storage is pooled together into 1 big drive - MOST UNSAFE
RAID 1 - Drives are duplicated so you lose half the available storage, but have a complete, up to the second copy of your data
RAID 5 - You lose 1 drive of data storage space, but data is spread across all the available drives and a small piece of information called PARITY is created each wave/stripe that makes a blueprint of all the data
RAID 6 - Same as above, but it removes two drives worth of space and protects you against the loss of two Hard Drives

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
What is a RAID hard drive?

A RAID Hard drive is a Hard Disk Drive that is designed to be used in a RAID configuration - in simple terms it is a drive that can be installed with multiple other drives of the same type (such as WD Red RAID Drives, WD Purples Surveillance RAID Drives and Seagate Ironwolf NAS RAID Drives). These are designed to be on for long periods of time and for handling data that is shared and/or duplicated across multiple drives at once - constructed with better vibration, head and access controls). Most other drives are designed to work on their own.

What is raid on a NAS?

RAID on a NAS is a means to protect yourself from losing your data due to hard drive failure. Hard Drives are the 2nd most vulnerable area of a NAS device and if a drive fails and you do not have a copy of the data elsewhere, you will most likely lose it all. RAID gives you a safety net (called REDUNDANCY) which means you can afford to lose 1, 2 or even 3 hard drives with the right configuration. The most common options are:

RAID 0 - Meaning all drive storage is pooled together into 1 big drive - MOST UNSAFE
RAID 1 - Drives are duplicated so you lose half the available storage, but have a complete, up to the second copy of your data
RAID 5 - You lose 1 drive of data storage space, but data is spread across all the available drives and a small piece of information called PARITY is created each wave/stripe that makes a blueprint of all the data
RAID 6 - Same as above, but it removes two drives worth of space and protects you against the loss of two Hard Drives

What is a personal cloud storage device?

A personal Cloud storage device is a piece of Hardware, Like a NAS, that gives you the access, freedom, speed and utility of popular 3rd party cloud providers such as Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, Amazon S3 and more. However unlike those providers that hold your data on a server farm hundreds or thousands of miles away, where you it can be broken into, a Personal Cloud (NAS) lives in your home/office and can be protected with both bespoke AES-256bit encryption, individual login credentials and if the worst case scenario, can be simply unplugged from the network/internet.


It is also considerably cheaper in the long term.


 

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
How do you connect to a NAS?

You can connect to a device in several ways:


- You can connect to a NAS via your home network as long as it is connected to the same router/switch that your other devices are connected to, via cable or over Wi-Fi (the devices, not the NAS)


- You can connect over the internet using the NAS manufacturer’s respective software on desktop or mobile platforms for Mac, Windows and Android devices


- You can also access the data as a network drive (where the location of the drive with be an IP - 192.168. etc.) and then the drive can be read and written to as needed


Thank you

How does a NAS device work?

Excellent Question. A NAS devices like a computer that is dedicated to storing data that is made accessible across all your internet enabled devices. It connects to your home network (in simple terms, the internet connected network in your home or office) and makes the data that is store on it accessible. You can also access the data from outside the phone via WiFi at hotspots and other buildings, or via your mobile 3G or 4G internet connection.

16/11/2017 | Popular Question | GB Flag |
Do you really need a NAS?

If you have data spread across multiple devices without a single backup location, then YES, you really do need a NAS drive. As it will make backing up with multiple devices easier, more automated and reliable.


If you are a business with large amounts of data that needs to be accessible quickly, across multiple machines or outside your office environment for off-site staff or clients, then YES you needs a NAS.


If you want your internet accessible data to be 100% inaccessible when needed (for security) and are considering a Cloud provider or a NAS, BUY A NAS!!! It is cheaper in the long run and can have individual and bespoke security measures.

I saw this video review and MrThaiBox123's short review - so I was really impressed and wanted to upgrade my current Synology DS412+ 4 bay NAS and so I purchased the i7 871T with 8 x 6TB Deskstar HGSTs NAS drives. This thing is a beast!!!! Its so fast and I've finally been able to run PLEX on the NAS drive where it should be and not have concerns about on the fly transcoding - this thing has dealt everything I have thrown at it - I was even installing QNAP apps, copying 1000s of files to it from other drives and I could run PLEX 1080p movie instantly and skip ahead - no stuttering - just so impressed - and the virtualisation server is awesome - I'm running windows 10 off the 871T like a standalone computer - going to hook up my TV now through the HDMI connection and get KODI up and running too - so impressed - thanks for the brilliant reviews. Don't need a mac mini now running the PLEX server!!!

Thank you for your comment. Always good when I user shares their input on a device!

Hi, There is a huge price difference between the i3 and the i5 version. I know one has more power and more ram but what does that mean in real life? Can you upgrade the CPU or the RAM later? Thx, Leo

You cannot upgrade the CPU and you could 'in theory' upgrade the RAM, BUT it is already at 16GB and it would be tough to get more use out of more RAM. The higher RAM and CPU are chielf there for real time thunderbolt access and media editing + 4K File manipulation (more than just transcoding). Ultimately you need to consider the amount of work you need to do in real-time to decide which unit is better for you. Thank you for your question.
