Configure this product

The TVS-951X is powered by a 7th-generation Intel® Celeron® 3865U low-power dual-core processor, with 2GB/8GB DDR4 dual-channel memory (up to 32GB) and features a hybrid drive bay design (including five 3.5-inch drive bays and four 2.5-inch SSD bays) that supports up to nine drives in the same physical space as a 5-bay NAS. When 2.5-inch SSDs are installed in their dedicated bays, you can enable SSD caching and Qtier auto-tiering technologies to boost overall system performance. As the price of SSDs continues to become more accessible, the TVS-951X provides a high-performance and budget-friendly storage solution for SMBs. The TVS-951X also features a built-in 10GBASE-T/NBASE-T port for you to build a 10GbE high-speed network environment.

Hybrid structure for enabling SSD and tiered storage
SSD prices continue to fall, but creating a full-SSD storage solution is still out of reach for most users – especially if they require high-capacity storage. The TVS-951X provides the ability to use a hybrid storage structure that leverages the benefits of both hard drives and SSD to provide high storage capacity and high performance. You can flexibly allocate applications to SSDs, set up a SSD cache, or use Qtier™ technology to automatically tier your frequently-accessed files to the SSD for the highest access speeds. Users can take advantage of these features to fully optimize the storage utilization of the TVS-951X.

7th-generation Intel® Celeron® 3865U dual-core 1.8 GHz CPU
Powered by a 7th-generation 14nm Intel® Celeron® Kaby Lake 3865U dual-core 1.8 GHz processor, with 2GB/8GB DDR4 dual-channel memory (up to 32GB), and SATA 6Gb/s HDD and SSD drives, the TVS-951X delivers high-performance read/write speeds and maintains high speeds even with AES-NI encryption enabled.

High-speed 10GbE network connectivity
TVS-951X features a built-in 10GBASE-T network port to provide 10GbE high-speed network connectivity. You can use the TVS-951X with QNAP’s 10GbE unmanaged switch (sold separately) to upgrade your network infrastructure to benefit from faster transfer speeds and to improve bandwidth-demanding applications. Both the TVS-951X and QNAP’s 10GbE unmanaged switches support NBASE-T (10G/5G/2.5G/1G/100M) five-speed network technology so you don’t have to replace the existing Cat 5e, 6 and 6a cables in your current network infrastructure.

Real-time 4K video transcoding
Featuring advanced Intel® HD Graphics 610, the TVS-951X supports dual-channel 4K H.264/H.265 hardware decoding and real-time transcoding, allowing you to convert videos to universal file formats that can be smoothly played on multiple devices*. You can also watch high-quality 4K media files on a HDTV using the HDMI output or use with Plex® Media Server to stream media files to mobiles devices and media streaming devices (including DLNA®, Roku®, Apple TV®, Amazon Fire TV® and Chromecast™).The QNAP RM-IR004 remote control (sold separately) can be configured using QButton to customize the actions of individual buttons, providing a more convenient NAS experience.

Enjoy the Roon experience without a PC
Roon, the music player for music lovers, identifies all the music stored on the NAS and consolidates them in Roon’s interconnected digital library. You can browse and play music with Roon apps on any compatible device for multi-zone multimedia experiences. The TVS-951X supports the Roon Server app in the QTS App Center and provides the performance, storage potential, and SSD caching to optimize music streaming, providing the perfect choice for the optimum music experience!

Multiply your productivity
The app-driven QTS operating system provides solutions for simplifying file backup, management, search, and more. With File Station you can view and manage the files on your TVS-951X and other storage sources/devices; the OCR Converter allows you to extract text from images; Qfiling helps automate file organization, and Qsirch helps quickly find files.

Protect data with snapshots
Snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. If a file is accidentally deleted or modified, you can use snapshots from the Storage & Snapshots Manager or the File Station to quickly restore the file to its previously-recorded state. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record the changed data. Not only does this save storage space but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data. The TVS-951X supports up to 256 snapshots per volume/LUN, and up to 1,024 snapshots in total.

Block-based iSCSI LUN: Ideal for virtualization storage
The TVS-951X supports block-based iSCSI LUN that provides a more reliable and isolated environment compared to file-based LUN. Supporting VMware®, Citrix®, Microsoft® Hyper-V® and Windows Server® 2016, the TVS-951X provides a dependable and affordable storage solution for virtualization environments, while also supporting VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supporting QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications.

NAS as a Multi-OS Platform
Virtualization Station and Container Station provide comprehensive solutions for creating virtualized environments to improve business IT infrastructure, workflows, and productivity.

QVR Pro – a whole-new surveillance solution
QNAP’s new QVR Pro surveillance solution allows you to arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on TVS-951X and leverage the advantages of scalable storage. With QVR Pro, camera management, storage space allocation, camera live view, and playback is greatly simplified. You can also use USB webcams as network cameras with the QUSBCam2 app, and remotely monitor your surveillance feeds at any time with QVR Pro Client’s companion mobile app.

Multi-point file backup, access and sync
The TVS-951X centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® devices. Coupled with Qsync (a utility that turns a QNAP NAS into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization) any file uploaded to the TVS-951X will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. Hybrid Backup Sync can help you easily backup or synchronize data on the TVS-951X to other QNAP NAS, remote servers, or cloud storage for easy disaster recovery.
