Build Your Own Render Farm

Slow rendering is a big issue for 3D animators and filmmakers in the creative professional industry. Because rendering is a time-consuming and workload-heavy task in the video production workflow, it can significantly impact project progress. The number of CPU cores and clock speed in the rendering server hardware plays an important role in rendering. To support resource-demanding rendering demands, the TS-2888X features powerful Intel® Xeon® W processors with excellent computing performance and high storage capacity. The TS-2888X can also host virtual machines and containers to run render management systems, such as OpenCue and Deadline from the NAS. Coupled with workstations using Maya, 3ds MAX, Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects, the TS-2888X realizes optimized collaborative rendering workflows.

CPU, Memory, and GPU

Video editing and rendering largely rely on CPU cores and threads. The TS-2888X is equipped with Intel® Xeon® W processors with up to 18 cores and 36 threads, features up to 512 GB memory, and supports up to four high-end graphics cards.

Multiple Virtual Machines

Use Virtualization Station to create multiple virtual machines on the TS-2888X for dynamic render nodes, and flexibly allocate CPU computing resources to the render nodes running different rendering tasks.

On-the-fly Video Editing With 25GbE High-speed Network

In the fast-growing content creation industry, the high-capacity TS-2888X is your ideal 4K media center. Users of Final Cut Pro® (Mac users) and Adobe® Premiere Pro® (Windows users) can centrally store, access, and share video materials on the TS-2888X via SMB protocol for highly collaborative projects. By using the PCIe-based 25GbE adapter (QXG-25G2SF-CX4), the TS-2888X can fully take advantage of the 25GbE network performance to accelerate file transfer and tackle team collaboration productivity challenges in the fast-paced media industry.

25GbE / 10GbE Network

Install network expansion cards through PCIe slots to increase network performance for bandwidth-demanding applications, such as online video editing and massive file transfer.

Storage and Drive Performance

High-capacity storage can significantly accommodate RAW files and 4K/8K videos. Hard drive performance influences not only file access speed, but also network performance. The TS-2888X features hybrid storage architecture that provides more flash to balance performance and capacity requirements.

Comprehensive Backup Solution

Flexible backup tools and snapshot protection assure your data while also allowing efficient disaster recovery.

Train Your AI Models With QuAI, and Accelerate Deep Learning Inference With OpenVINO™

QNAP’s exclusive QuAI enables data scientists and developers to quickly build, train and optimize machine-learning models running on QNAP NAS. The combination of system and software helps reduce time and complexity for AI environments setup and maintenance. The Intel® OpenVINO™ (Open Visual Inference and Neural Network Optimization) helps to fast-track development of high-performance computer vision and deep learning into vision applications. It enables deep learning on hardware accelerators and easy heterogeneous execution across Intel® platforms, including CPU, GPU, FPGA and VPU. The OpenVINO™ toolkit allows you to optimize and verify trained models developed by the TS-2888X before inferencing, and economically distribute computer vision solutions leveraging AI.

U.2 Ssd for Data Preprocessing

Data preprocessing can have high memory consumption that potentially impacts system performance. To offload preprocessing workloads, you can install up to four U.2 SSDs in the TS-2888X.

Collect Massive Training Data With Download Station

Machine learning requires a large set of data feeds. The QNAP Download Station can help organize downloading tasks for massive training data. For example, you can create and schedule download tasks with Download Station to compile images from Open Images Dataset automatically.

Iops-optimized Storage to Boost Ii Workloads

SSD caching accelerates IOPS performance and reduces storage volume latency, providing many benefits for the metadata-intensive, small file I/O requirements of AI workloads. Qtier™ technology can also empower the TS-2888X with auto-tiering to help strike a balance between performance and storage.

Making AI Accessible to Your Business Blueprint

The TS-2888X integrates AI-focused hardware and software to reduce the time and complexity for implementing and managing AI tasks, making it the ideal AI solution with great cost-efficiency for most organizations and industries.
