World's First Thunderbolt NAS

Offers Ultimate Transferring Speed via Thunderbolt™ 2 up to 20 GbE

QNAP Thunderbolt™ NAS is one giant evolutionary leep in the world of storage. The Thunderbolt™ 2 connectivity can reach up to 20 Gbps and is an affordably priced solution. You can centralize all of your files and use it as a Network Attached Storage and but also enjoying the advantage of the lightning speeds of Direct Attached Storage.  .

Thunderbolt connectivities

Innovative Thunderbolt™ technology and Two 10GbE connectivities

The Thunderbolt™ 2 protocol uses industry standard networking technologies meaning the high-speed transmission over your Thunderbolt™ 2 cable is able to run all network services (such as file sharing, FTP, and other services). The TVS-871T can also simultaneously run general Ethernet services with the built-in 10GbE LAN card in addition to the Thunderbolt™ 2 network, completely independently and with no bandwidth interference. You can flexibly allocate proper bandwidth for different concurrent tasks.

Network Attached Storage, a central storage system consisting of multiple hard drives, continuously connected to the network. The Gb network also provides decent transfer speed, and unlike a DAS, gives you access across different platforms.
QNAP Turbo NAS supports various 10 GbE cards based on models. Please visit the page of the compatibility list: here
Unlike Final Cut Pro 7 Projects, Final Cut Pro X libraries cannot be opened or saved to an AFP or SMB share point. It needs to be on a local storage or on a SAN. Using a SAN is more complex and requires a bigger budget, which can be out of reach for postproduction companies with only a few edit suites. If you want to use SAN, please refer to:

Another solution is to use NFS for FCPX project. The shared media can be mounted on NFS or SMB, and the library can be only stored on the mount via NFS. However, the library mount has to be configured and recognized as a local drive. The options need to be given when the NAS share is mounted via NFS.

1. Edit nfs.conf within /etc (Create it if it doesn't exist)
2. Add options to nfs.conf which will apply to system when the share is mounted.

     nfs.client.mount.options=nfssver=3,tcp,async,locallocks,rw,rdirplus,rsize=65536,wsize=65536

3. For additional performance, latency in NFS write operations can be reduced further. This is accomplished by modifying the nfs.conf file to include this additional line:

     nfs.client.allow_async=1

Yes, all management and administration pages are HTML5 web-based, it is designed for any kind of platform, including Mac, PC, iOS, and Android.
You can easily replace the smaller hard drive to a larger driver one by one after each one has rebuilt online. Also, you can migrate the RAID configuration from RAID 1 to RAID 5 when you insert mode hard drives as. Please refer to:

There are several ways to share your file on NAS:
     1. Securely share files with a URL
     2. Share with App Qfile
You can use our NAS Selector. It will calculate and recommend the best NAS depending on your demands.
