QNAP TVS-1282T3 overview

  • 1Description

Upgraded with Thunderbolt 3 and an Intel 7th-Gen Kaby Lake processor, the TVS-1282T3 12-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. It has also been designed with tiered storage, application-based partitioning, and network traffic distribution.

The TVS-1282T3 is powered by a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i7-7700 Quad-Core processor and 32GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, which can be upgraded to 64GB, using one 16GB module in each of the four DIMM slots. Network connectivity is achieved using the four Gigabit Ethernet ports and two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the latter of which helps 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 12-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 eight drive bays that can accept both 3.5" and 2.5" drives, and there are also four dedicated 2.5" drive bays. The TVS-1282T3 can reach a throughput of up to 1600 MB/s, and using the external four 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, five 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, and three HDMI ports, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other QNAP devices, as well as other external drives and displays. Internally, there are two M.2 slots for tiered storage and cache acceleration using separately sold M.2 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110 flash modules. Additionally, the TVS-1282T3 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 M.2 SSDs, 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. Using Application-based Partitioning, the M.2 and SATA storage devices can be configured as independent partitions for different applications, helping to ensure a sufficient throughput level for all applications.

The QNAP TVS-1282T3 12-Bay NAS Enclosure operates on 100-240 VAC, 3-1.5A, and 50-60 Hz. It outputs 250W and includes four Gigabit Ethernet cables, two 10 Gigabit Ethernet cables, a power cord, two screws and two bolts for M.2 installation, twenty-four flat head screws for 2.5" drives, two M.2 SSD heatsinks, and an IR remote control.

With Auto Tiering, the TVS-1282T3 can automatically move frequently-used "hot" data to high-performance storage tiers and less-accessed "cold" data to lower-cost, higher-capacity drives, making the TVS-1282T3 an efficient shared resource. Qtier now supports "On Demand Allocation Priority," providing customizable flexibility to arrange tiered storage suited for your system environments and application demands.

    Application-based Partitioning is aware that every application has varying levels of performance requirements. For example, Surveillance Station requires higher-priority access to storage to ensure the integrity of recordings, while normal transmission speeds are sufficient for file sharing. However, when multiple applications are running on the same storage media, the required throughput level cannot be guaranteed, as the storage media is busy handling I/O requests from all of them. The TVS-1282T3 supports three different types of storage media: M.2, SSD, and SATA hard drives, and they can be configured as independent partitions for different applications, ensuring a sufficient throughput level for every application.

    Network Traffic Distribution utilizes four GbE and two 10Gbe ports, allowing applications to use dedicated interfaces to meet network traffic distribution requirements. Network interfaces can also be easily managed with the Network & Virtual Switch app, which enables optimized network resources for TVS-1282T3, virtual machines, and containerized apps. No matter if they are business organizations or individual users, they can manage network connections by using the Network & Virtual Switch.
    Access 10GbE Networks Over Thunderbolt with Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E)
    As Apple computers do not natively support 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Mac users previously needed to purchase a Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter to connect to high-speed Ethernet networks. The Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E) allows computers without Ethernet ports (such as the MacBook Pro) to access 10GbE network resources over a Thunderbolt connection to the TVS-1282T3. This saves users from having to buy adapters or converters and streamlines the connectivity process.
    Thunderbolt 3/NAS/iSCSI SAN Triple Solution
    The TVS-1282T3 can simultaneously run general Ethernet services in addition to the Thunderbolt 3 network, completely independently and with no bandwidth interference. As a NAS that combines Thunderbolt, NAS, and iSCSI SAN into one box, the TVS-1282T3 prevents the restriction of DAS connecting to only one device, and breaks the cost barrier for creating 10GbE high-speed network environments.
    Thunderbolt NAS Mode
    You can directly access files on the TVS-1282T3 on a file-based level. Simply attach your computer to the TVS-1282T3 with a Thunderbolt 3 cable, and you will find the TVS-1282T3 in Finder/File Explorer with accessible shared folders available for you.
    Ethernet NAS Mode
    The TVS-1282T3 also features Ethernet networking for flexible file sharing across multiple devices simultaneously using SMB/CIFS, AFP, and NFS for sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX networks.

    High Accessibility (Mac + JBOD) mode allows three Mac workstations to be attached to the TVS-1282T3 via Thunderbolt 3 ports for online video editing, while the remaining Thunderbolt 3 port is used for storage expansion by connecting up to six NAS expansion enclosures (TX-500P / TX-800P). You can also take advantage of the built-in 10GbE LAN card for multi-device file sharing over a 10GbE network at the same time.

    Optimal Collaboration (Mac + Mac) is designed for when multiple workstations are used together to speed up a project. Each workstation can be connected separately to the Thunderbolt 3 ports on the TVS-1282T3 for simultaneous, speedy video editing.

    Dividing Resources (Mac + NAS) should be used for large-sized video productions that 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 six TVS-1282T3 units to the original TVS-1282T3 and arrange each NAS for dedicated workflow stages, while the other Thunderbolt 3 ports are connected to the workstations for smoothly accessing large-sized video files. Meanwhile, each TVS-1282T3 allows file sharing with multiple devices through Gigabit or 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks.

    Seamless Expansion (JBOD + JBOD) helps assure users that massive files are safely stored on the TVS-1282T3, which supports seamless capacity expansion to offer abundant storage. You can connect up to six NAS expansion enclosures (TX-500P / TX-800P) to the TVS-1282T3 through Thunderbolt 3 ports and share files via the 10GbE network.

    QNAP TVS-1282T3 reviews

    TVS-1282T3 12-Bay NAS Enclosure is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Solid for video editing and general business! I purchased this to expand my video editing setup so that multiple computers could all work off the drives at the same time. I am running over Thunderbolt and achieving speeds up to 1700MBps on a windows rig. It's easy to use and there is a ton of documentation. I highly recommend this if you are a small business with plans to expand over time. A truly great investment!
    Date published: 2017-08-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for high demanding 4K film production I am on the high end of 4K video film making... this server is what you need for this. Pushed 2 x M.2 Samsung Evo 860 1 TB and 4 x Samsung 960 1 TB SSD's in it for cache acceleration and 8 x 10 TB WD Gold HDD's in a RAID 5 application. Connected to a Mac Pro late 2013 via TB3 to TB2 adapter. I get around 700 MByte/s write and close to 1000 Mbyte/s read speed... perfect. Not easy to set up, had a lot of problems with the thunderbolt protocol and connection stability. Upgraded to latest QNAP QTS firmware and now running perfectly. The close to best is: it is f... silent, you can put it close to your working area, no disturbing fan noise. Really not cheap, fully blown up around 10.000 $ but worth it! Highly recommended.
