Product Overview

QNAP TS-873A-8G 8 Bay NAS Enclosure

Featuring an AMD Ryzen™ V1000 series V1500B quad-core processor that delivers great system performance with up to quad-core / 8 threads and Turbo Core up to 2.2 GHz. The TS-873A features two 2.5GbE RJ45 ports and two PCIe Gen 3 slots for you to flexibly deploy 5GbE/10GbE networks. Two M.2 NVMe SSD slots for Qtier Technology and SSD Caching enable constant storage optimization. The TS-873A supports QTS and QuTS hero, allowing users to flexibly switch operating system based on their requirements.

Switch Operating Systems for Optimal Data Integrity and Reliability

The TS-873A also supports QuTS hero - QNAP's ZFS-based NAS operating system. Providing end-to-end data integrity, data reduction (inline data deduplication, compression and compaction), and much more, QuTS hero uses additional system resources to ensure an optimal environment for protecting business data.

Obtain Performance Benefits from M.2 SSD Caching

The TS-873A features 2 M.2 NVMe SSD slots for you to enjoy SSD caching or Qtier auto tiering Technology.

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 virtualisation) and can significantly improve overall workflows.
Maximise the value of SSDs with Qtier Technology
Qtier Technology empowers the TS-873A with auto tiering that helps continuously optimise 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. Qtier 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 maximising the advantages of SSDs.

Upgrade to 10GbE and Abundant Capability with PCIe Expansion

The TS-873A features two PCIe Gen 3 x4 slots that allows for various expansion cards for expanding application potential.

5GbE/10GbE network card
Enable lightning-fast throughput for bandwidth-demanding tasks, such as virtualisation, massive data transmission, and fast backup/restoration.
QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE card
Adds M.2 NVMe SSD/SATA SSD caching or 10GbE (10GBASE-T) connectivity to the NAS for optimised performance and bandwidth.
USB 3.2 GEN 2 (10Gbps) expansion card
Enjoy higher network speeds or boost the USB connectivity for faster file transfer.
WiFi 6 wireless adapter
Install a PCIe 802.11ax network adapter (based on the Intel AX200) in your NAS to create a seamless WiFi 6 network environment or add a QWA-AC2600 wireless adapter (sold separately, see accessories tab) with WirelessAP Station to build a wireless access point.
SAS/SATA expansion card
Designed for connecting the TS-873A to TL SATA, TL SAS and PEXP expansion units (sold separately) to increase storage capacity

Easy and Secure File Management

File Station allows direct management of files stored on the TS-873A and in the cloud. Users can easily upload files from their PC, drag/drop files between folders, rename/delete files, and configure file/folder permissions to prevent unauthorised access. Microsoft Office Online can also be used to directly view/edit Microsoft Office documents stored on the TS-873A. Confidential/sensitive data can be encrypted to add extra security.

Install a Graphics Card for GPU-Accelerated Computing

Graphics cards are optimised for graphical calculations and transformations, but require significantly more power than other hardware. The TS-873A features PCIe slots to support high-profile graphics cards that do not need power cables, including NVIDIA GeForce GTX1650 graphics cards (not included) to boost performance of applications such as video editing, 4K UHD transcoding, imaging processing in QTS and performance of virtual machines via GPU passthrough.

Build an Affordable Fibre Channel SAN Environment

Common Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks (SAN) devices are often costly. By installing a QNAP 16Gb Fibre Channel card (QXP-16G2FC 16Gb - sold separately, see accessories tab) in the TS-873A, you can set a Fibre Channel Target using the iSCSI & Fibre Channel app. Moreover, the LUN Masking and Port Binding features provide an additional layer of data security.

High-Speed 2.5GbE VM Backup Solution

With Hyper Data Protector, the TS-873A becomes an agentless backup tool for unlimited VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V VM backup. Hyper Data Protector features incremental backup, global deduplication, backup scheduling and recovery compression. With 2.5GbE connectivity, backup and restoration times are greatly reduced, providing a cost-effective solution for disaster recovery.
