Obtain performance benefits from M.2 SSD caching
Besides using 2.5-inch SSDs for caching, you can utilize the two M.2 SSD slots built in to the TVS-472XT for installing PCIe (Gen 3 x2, 2 GB/s) NVMe SSDs with 2280 form factors (M.2 SSDs are sold separately).
Improve random data access speeds with an SSD cache
SSD caches accelerate IOPS performance and reduce latency for storage volumes. They are perfect for IOPS-demanding applications (including databases and virtualization) and can significantly improve overall workflows.
Maximize the value of SSDs with Qtier Technology
Qtierâ„¢ Technology empowers the TVS-472XT with auto tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency by automatically moving data between M.2 SSDs, 2.5-inch SSDs, and high-capacity HDDs based on the data's access frequency. Qtierâ„¢ 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD-tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSDs.
Potentially attain performance and endurance levels similar to enterprise-grade SSDs
With SSD prices continuing to become more affordable, there's never been a better time for using SSDs in your NAS to enjoy higher performance, faster file backups, smoother multimedia experiences, and optimized virtualization applications. From QTS 4.3.5 you can benefit from software-defined SSD RAID extra over-provisioning (OP) that enables you to allocate additional OP space (from 1% to 60%) to optimize random write speeds and to extend SSD lifespan. Now you can use affordable consumer SSDs for the TVS-472XT, adjust the SSD OP, and potentially attain performance and endurance levels similar to enterprise-grade SSDs.
Flexibly manage virtual and physical networks
The Network & Virtual Switch app manages physical network interfaces (including network adapters and Thunderboltâ„¢ ports) and virtual adapters (virtual machines and containers) and their communications, providing a visualized topology that clearly presents the connections of physical and virtual networks. The flexible manageability enables you to reorganize physical and virtual network connections with greater ease, so you can allocate adequate network resources to the TVS-472XT, virtual machines and containers whenever needed.
Collaboration station for Mac and Windows
The TVS-472XT is the perfect match for Thunderboltâ„¢-equipped MacÂ® and WindowsÂ® users - especially for photographers, filmmakers, and graphic designers who require 4K media storage, instant sharing and have bandwidth-intensive workflows. Up to 2 Thunderboltâ„¢ devices can be connected to the TVS-472XT to process real-time photo and audio editing simultaneously without impacting system performance. As Final Cut ProÂ® X 10.3 (and later) supports file sharing via SMB, WindowsÂ® users and other devices utilizing Thunderboltâ„¢ 3, 10GbE or GbE connections can join the editing workflow more efficiently.
The best storage solution for the 10GbE-equipped iMac Pro
The iMac ProÂ® is the first MacÂ® computer that includes a 10Gb Ethernet port, marking a milestone in the growing mainstream demands for 10GbE connectivity. As the TVS-472XT comes with both 10GbE and Thunderboltâ„¢ 3 ports, it provides an exceptional storage base for iMac ProÂ® users as they can flexibly choose between Thunderboltâ„¢ 3 and 10GbE connections to suit their application and device needs.
