Upgraded with Thunderbolt 3 and an Intel 7th-Gen Kaby Lake processor, the TVS-1582TU 15-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP is a Thunderbolt 3/NAS/iSCSI SAN triple solution that can handle collaboration between up to four Mac and Windows devices. As its increased bandwidth allows for smooth 4K video transfers and online editing, the TVS-1282T3 is well-suited for Thunderbolt 3 systems that are engaging in 4K workflows, file storage, and high-speed sharing, especially SNG/OB van live media production that requires frequent relocation. It has also been designed with tiered storage, application-based partitioning, and network traffic distribution.
The TVS-1582TU is powered by a 3.4 GHz Intel Core i5-7500 Quad-Core processor and 16GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM in a 2 x 8GB configuration, which can be upgraded to 64GB. Network connectivity is achieved using the four Gigabit Ethernet ports and two 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports, the latter of which help to further enhance on-the-fly video editing and rapid file sharing. This NAS also supports JBOD and a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and hot spare, each of which offer data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both.
This 15-bay enclosure has the ability to natively house both 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III and SATA II hard drives or SSD drives. There are nine drive bays that can accept both 3.5" and 2.5" drives, and there are also six dedicated 2.5" drive bays. The TVS-1582TU can reach a throughput of up to 1600 MB/s, and using the external four 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, four 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, four 480 Mb/s USB 2.0 Type-A ports, and one HDMI 1.4b port, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other QNAP devices, as well as other external drives and displays. Additionally, the TVS-1582TU is validated with FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, helping to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.
Using QNAP's tiered storage functionality, storage efficiency is optimized across the available SATA SSDs and SATA HDDs. Frequently used "hot" data is stored on high-performance SSD tiers, while less-accessed "cold" data is kept on higher-capacity hard drives. As data priorities change, material will be shifted between the SSDs and HDDs.
The TVS-1582TU 15-Bay NAS Enclosure operates using dual redundant 450W power supplies that run on 90-264 VAC. Included are four Ethernet cables, two power cords, flat head screws for 2.5" drives, and flat head screws for 3.5" drives. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.
