QNAP (Quality Network Appliance Provider) Systems, Inc., one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-performance NAS systems, NVR video surveillance solutions and digital signage, exhibited an impressively wide range of offerings at this year's CeBIT in Hannover. Besides NAS innovations for domestic and business applications and the latest apps and features, the Taiwanese company also offered key insights into the trending topic of the Internet of Things. QNAP's most popular attraction turned out to be its QIoT solution combined with smart-home concepts. However, the company itself chose to highlight its first Thunderbolt-3 NAS, above all the TVS-1282T3 12-bay model.
The QNAP TVS-1282T3 NAS is equipped with a seventh-generation 14-nm Intel Core i5/i7 processor and boasts four Thunderbolt-3 connections. With no less than 12 slots for eight 3.5-inch and four 2.5-inch hard disks, the system offers more than enough storage. Specially designed in this way to appeal to media producers and creative professionals, all of QNAPs Thunderbolt-3 NAS systems have ultra-fast transmission speeds (double the previous generation’s) and expandable data storage to meet the current demands in high-speed multi-workstation environments. Not only that, but QNAP's Thunderbolt-3 NAS systems are downwardly compatible with USB 3.1 storage media and thus marry much more effectively with non-Thunderbolt USB devices.
