    1. 1. Introducing the World’s First Thunderbolt™ Hybrid NAS Presented by: Hernan Lopez
    2. 2. Current Products in the Market  Block-based DAS (Direct Attached Storage)
    3. 3. Challenges Today Using a DAS Direct attached storage used today :  USB External HDD / e.g. WD, Seagate drives, Toshiba  RAID drives / e.g. LaCie, G-technology, OWC  USB sticks / e.g. SanDisk, Kingston, PNY 1. Inability to share files  Have to physically move the drives in order to share 2. Inability to centralize files  Multiple drives lay around and not organized 3. Inability to remote access  Cannot access files on-the-go / or working remotely
    4. 4. Challenges of using a NAS Speed!!  Common network speed  10 GbE (Very expensive)  1 GbE ( Was slower than a DAS)
    5. 5. Speed is Key High-performance I/O throughput 20Gb/s Thunderbolt 2 *Current* 10Gb/s Thunderbolt 5GB/s USB 3 .8GB/s FireWire 800 .5GB/s USB 2
    6. 6. Our Solution – Thunderbolt™ NAS  DAS + NAS = Solution to all  Thunderbolt 2 speeds  Sharable across network via SMB/AFP/FTP protocols  Remote access  Expandable (expansion units) TVS-871T –Thunderbolt 2 NAS Expansion Units TX-500P/TX-800P Thunderbolt 2 JBOD 8-bay 5-bay8-bay
    7. 7. TVS-871T is a File-based DAS  Plug & Play without complex settings  Directly attach between NAS and PC/ Mac  Access shared folders via Thunderbolt 2 connectivity TVS-871T
    8. 8. Why the Thunderbolt™ NAS  Faster transfer speeds  Direct attached to your computer  Mac  Late 2013 and later -> Thunderbolt 2 capable  Mid 2011 ~ Late 2012 -> Thunderbolt 1  Windows (selected high-end models)  More cost-effective  10GbE environment requires >$1500 + to set up  Thunderbolt connection is essentially free
    9. 9. Available in 2 Models  TVS-871T 8-bay NAS:  TVS-871T-i5-16G: Core i5, 16GB RAM, Thunderbolt 2 port * 2  TVS-871T-i7-16G: Core i7, 16GB RAM, Thunderbolt 2 port * 2

    11. 11. Quick Comparison
    12. 12. How it Works: IP over Thunderbolt  Thunderbolt 2 cable can run all network services including FTP, file share. But if it’s not enough…  2 x Thunderbolt™2 ports  2 x 10GbE ports  4 x 1GbE Ethernet port
    13. 13. Challenges of the Creatives  Photography  Multiple external hard drives laying around  Hard to fine particular photos / photo shoots  Post-production  Time consuming when sharing files  Large files / sometimes 10+GBs per file, requiring lots of storage  Film  Multiple outings for shoots/filming require on the go. Uses rugged external HDD  Advertising  Art directors have to work with Thunderbolt speeds, but still have challenges to share quickly with creative directors / clients
    14. 14. Example Workflow of a Photographer Photo shoot Read files From SD card Save a copy of raw file to external HDD Edit raw files And save edited files Share files… via? Cloud services, or hard drive USB stick Challenges: • May end up with many external HDD • Data Protection (disk failure) • Spread out copies everywhere • Ability to share files
    15. 15. Thunderbolt™ NAS Workflow Photo shoot Upload raw files from SD to Thunderbolt NAS Backup extra copies of raw images on Thunderbolt NAS. Edits raw images with Thunderbolt speeds with Thunderbolt NAS SHARE 1. via direct download links for clients, managers to review. 2. Within the network via Ethernet 3. Via 2nd thunderbolt port to another Mac/Thunderbolt-ready computer BACKUP TO CLOUD SERVICES CHALLENGES SOLVED • Centralize files in one place • Data protected by RAID (in case of hard drive failure) • Disaster prevention – lets you backup the files on the NAS to Cloud services, other NAS, external drives • Easily share files
    16. 16. Dual Thunderbolt Ports 1. 2 Workstations can directly connect and edit via Thunderbolt™ 2. Share and access the files within the NAS via the network 3. Scale as you go, daisy chain expansion units via Thunderbolt Dual Thunderbolt + 10GbE Share across network
    17. 17. TVS-871T Flexibly Expand with Thunderbolt JBOD  TVS-871T can be expanded with 2 expansion models:  TX-500P: 5-bay expansion unit  TX-800P: 8-bay expansion unit  TVS-871T can connect up to 6 expansion units  Store up to 448 TB raw capacity TX-800P TX-800P TX-800P TX-800P TX-500P TX-500P
