The 10GbE-ready TVS-471 delivers lightning-fast data throughput and coupled with the support for a large storage capacity is perfect for data centers to store big data and excel in fast data transmission, as well as editing 4K videos on-the-fly without transferring the videos between the TVS-471 and desktop computers.



4K Ultra-High-Definition ready

See even more detail with 4K! The TVS-471's high quality hardware allows you to smoothly play 4K videos on an HDTV with XBMC local display through HDMI without heavily consuming system resources. Featuring Intel HD Graphics, the TVS-471 delivers superior real-time 4K (H.264) and 1080p video transcoding to convert videos to universal formats that can be smoothly played on PCs, mobile devices and Smart TVs. It allows for multiple devices to simultaneously view different videos stored on the TVS-471 with on-the-fly hardware accelerated transcoding, saving your time to convert videos into different formats for different devices.

With the benefit of offline transcoding, even when you can only connect to a low-speed Internet connection, you can still enjoy smooth video playback via File Station, Video Station, and the Qfile mobile app by selecting a pre-rendered lower resolution video, saving system resources of the TVS-471 for other applications. The TVS-471 also allows you to set a dedicated folder for automatic video transcoding.

Use your TVS-471 as a PC with exclusive QvPC Technology

QNAP's exclusive QvPC Technology consolidates a number of high-end technologies including VM integration, multimedia transcoding, HDMI output, cloud integration and NAS connection technologies, allowing users to operate the TVS-471 as a PC when they plug in a keyboard, mouse and monitor. With QvPC Technology, the TVS-471 is transformed into a cost-effective PC substitute for users to directly access stored data, run multiple applications using Windows/Linux/UNIX/Android-based VMs, surf the web on Google Chrome, enjoy 4K or 1080p videos with up to 7.1 channel audio with XBMC, monitor Surveillance Station in real time with local display, and much more.


Extend the functionality of the TVS-471 with virtualization

The Virtualization Station transforms the TVS-471 into a 2-in-a-box NAS that can function as an all-in-one NAS and a virtualization platform that supports multiple operating systems, fast virtual machine creation, virtual machine import/export, snapshot, and enables desktop operations on web browsers. With an easy-to-use interface, you can centrally manage all of the virtual machines created on the TVS-471 with minimal effort. You can also download VMs on demand from online VM markets and import them to TVS-471 without any complex procedure.




Full NAS encryption technology ensures data security

QNAP's full NAS encryption by volume-based technology effectively ensures data security by encrypting all of the files stored in the default shared folders on the TVS-471. Even if the TVS-471 is encrypted, all the files can still be accessible via Windows SMB/CIFS, iSCSI, and NFS protocols. Users without permission to access the TVS-471 will be unable to access the stored files, hence data security risks and privacy leaks can be avoided.


Intelligent Storage Manager

The QTS Storage Manager provides a secure and flexible way to manage volumes. This next-generation volume management offers powerful features such as storage pooling with multiple RAID group protection, thin provisioned volumes with Space Reclaim, block-level iSCSI LUN and online capacity expansion. The QTS Storage Manager neatly presents tools and options for managing system storage to simplify the process of NAS capacity expansion and QNAP storage expansion enclosure management.



Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage

The TVS-471 supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX networks. Data, logs and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the Turbo NAS and protected by an integrated antivirus solution. The Windows AD and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using existing Windows AD server, LDAP server or NAS build-in LDAP services. The TVS-471 supports SAMBA v4 and can act as a Windows domain controller to manage privilege settings.




Well-rounded backup solutions to secure data

The QNAP NetBak Replicator supports real-time and scheduled data backup on Windows including Outlook email archiving. Apple Time Machine is also supported to provide Mac OS X users with a solution to effortlessly back up data to the TVS-471. The USB 3.0 port on the front panel of the TVS-471 features a one-touch-copy function for you to instantly back up data on external drives to the TVS-471 with just one click, or alternatively to back up data from the TVS-471 to external drives. A wide range of third-party backup software such as Acronis True Image and Symantec Backup Exec are also supported.




Disaster recovery solutions brings peace of mind

The TVS-471 offers various data recovery options. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real time or scheduled data backup to a remote Turbo NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files to a remote folder from a local folder with better backup efficiency and reduced backup time. The TVS-471 also supports rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on a scheduled basis. Data can also be backed up to and restored from a range of cloud storage services, including Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier, Microsoft Azure, ElephantDrive, Symform, Dropbox and Google Drive.


Comprehensive security options

In an open network environment, business data may be exposed in a potential hack. The TVS-471 provides numerous security options, such as encrypted access, IP blocking, and more. Besides, IT administrators can control the access rights of each user to different folders, preventing unauthorized access to important files. The TVS-471 is validated with military level FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, preventing sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breach even if the hard drives or the entire system were stolen.


Storage for comprehensive virtualization applications

The TVS-471 supports VMware and Citrix, and is compatible with Microsoft Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012, benefiting flexible deployment and management in the virtualization environments. The TVS-471 supports VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supports QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced efficiency of operations and management in virtualization applications.




Optimize IT assets management with the IT Management Station

The IT Management Station, powered by Mandriva Pulse, provides a flexible service for managing multi-OS and multi-site IT assets for business of all sizes. By installing the IT Management Station on the TVS-471, you can centrally manage multiple IT resources with numerous business applications including comprehensive inventory, centralized software deployment & updates, imaging, remote management & support, backup & restore, and more tasks with greater flexibility and productivity.




File synchronization across multiple devices
