QNAP TVS-951X overview

  • 1Description

Built as a high-performance and budget-friendly storage solution for SMBs, the TVS-951X 9-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP features a hybrid drive bay design with five 3.5" SATA III drive bays and four 2.5" SATA III drive bays. When 2.5" SSDs are installed in their dedicated bays, you can enable SSD caching and Qtier auto-tiering technologies to boost overall system performance.

The TVS-951X is powered by a 1.8 GHz Intel Celeron 3865U Dual-Core processor and 8GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM in a 2 x 4GB configuration. The memory can be upgraded to 32GB by using one 16GB module in each of the two SO-DIMM slots, and network connectivity is achieved using one 10 Gigabit Ethernet port and one Gigabit Ethernet port. When connected via the 10GbE port, data can be read at speeds up to 779 MB/s and written at speeds up to 739 MB/s. When transferring files with encryption, read speeds can reach 720 MB/s and write speeds max out at 363 MB/s.

Use the three 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports to connect this QNAP NAS to other devices, allowing you to easily transfer large media files and expand NAS storage. Users can also take advantage of the HDMI 1.4b output to watch 4K media files on their HDTV, or stream to compatible devices using Plex. To aid in this, the TVS-951X supports hardware decoding and real-time transcoding. Additionally, the this NAS is validated with AES-NI and FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, helping to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.

QNAP has engineered the TVS-951X to support RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60, each of which offers data redundancy, performance, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD and single disk modes are also available. Included is a a power cord, a 120W AC power adapter, two Ethernet cables, flat head screws for 2.5" drives, and flat head screws for 3.5" drives. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.

General Features

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 SSDs 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 high access speeds. Users can take advantage of these features to fully optimize the storage utilization of the TVS-951X.
1.8 GHz Intel Celeron 3865U Dual-Core Processor
Powered by a 7th-generation Kaby Lake, 14 nm 1.8 GHz Intel Celeron 3865U Dual-Core processor, with 8GB of DDR4 dual-channel memory (up to 32GB) and SATA III 6 Gb/s HDD and SSD drive bays, the TVS-951X delivers high-performance read/write speeds and maintains high speeds even with AES-NI encryption is enabled.
High-Speed 10GbE Network Connectivity
The 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 integrated 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 played on multiple devices. You can also watch high-quality 4K media files on a HDTV using the HDMI 1.4b output at resolutions up to 4096 x 2304 @ 24 Hz, or use it 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.

Please note that the TVS-951X's hardware provides H.264/H.265 hardware decoding, encoding, and transcoding capabilities. However, playback quality may vary due to factors including playback software, file formats, system usage, and available bandwidth.
