Powered by an Intel Core i3 processor, the high-performance TVS-872X NAS features built-in 10GbE connectivity for boosted virtualization performance and streamlined backup and application workflows from multiple workstations. The TVS-872X also supports M.2 NVMe SSDs for cache acceleration, PCIe expansion, multi-cloud backup, 4K HDMI 2.0 output and real-time transcoding, alongside expandable storage capacity and feature-rich apps to perform as a cost-efficient, reliable, and multifunctional NAS solution.

5-speed 10GBASE-T RJ45 connectivity accelerates virtualization, intensive file access, large backup/restoration tasks, and media transfer.
Dual M.2 PCIe Gen 3 x2 NVMe SSD slots enable cache acceleration or SSD storage pools for improved performance.
PCIe expansion allows for 2.5/5/10/25GbE network cards, QM2 card, QXP storage expansion cards, or graphics cards.
4K media playback and real-time transcoding; display multimedia content saved on the NAS via HDMI 2.0 (4K 60Hz) output.
Host multiple virtual machines and containers to run a wide range of applications and services.
A business-class backup center supporting backup/restore of cloud data and VMs (including Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, VMware and Hyper-V).

Quad-core 3.1 GHz processor with up to 64 GB memory
The TVS-872X adopts an Intel Core i3-8100T quad-core 3.1 GHz processor with dual-channel DDR4 memory (expandable to 64 GB) to tackle heavy multitasking workloads. AES-NI encryption support boosts encryption performance to secure NAS data without impacting overall system operations.

Build a budget-friendly 10GbE environment
The TVS-872X 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-872X also include 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-872X. 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.

Abundant I/O capabilities with PCIe expansion
The TVS-872X has two PCIe Gen 3 slots that allow for installing various expansion cards for expanding application potential.

Direct 4K HDMI output for multimedia and virtual machines
The TVS-872X 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-872X 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.

A secure file center supporting regular backups and snapshot protection
The TVS-872X provides a reliable, flexible backup and disaster recovery solution to simplify routine backup jobs cost-efficiently and with high productivity.

License-free VMware and Hyper-V backup appliance
With Hyper Data Protector, the TVS-872X 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-872X 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-872X 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-872X, 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-872X 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.
