QNAP logoUpdated - QNAP has announced a combination DAS/NAS/iSCSI SAN storage appliance.

QNAP says the TVS-871T is the world's first Thunderbolt 2 DAS/NAS/iSCSI SAN triple solution. It's aimed primarily at 4K video editing and can simultaneously display and transfer these high bit-rate files.

The TVS-871T runs on a 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 CPU and has dual Gigabit Ethernet and can be equipped with an optional 10 GbE port via a built-in PCIe expansion slot. A Thunderbolt 2 port allows the NAS to be used as DAS for even higher file transfer bandwidth. USB 3.0 ports allow for backup drive and printer attachment.

The NAS was demonstrated at Computex 2015 with Seagate Enterprise NAS hard drives. Pricing and availability were not announced.

QNAP's also announced its upcoming QTS 4.2 OS will include the Qsirch full-text search tool that uses TF-IDF for faster, more efficient searches. Other QTS 4.2 improvements include a new interface design for its desktop, Storage Manager, and multiple other applications and new features including volume snapshot, snapshot replication, VM backup & restore, JBOD enclosure roaming, backup versioning, encrypting shared folders, and enhanced network security.

Update: Qsirch is actually available now in the QNAP App Center for all x86 based products.

Also coming are an upgraded Virtualization Station 2.0 with software-defined networking (SDN) support and QNAP Container Station that integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization methods. This will allow users to operate multiple isolated Linux systems on a QNAP NAS and download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry.
