QNAP announced the TVS-871T about a month ago and the company is shipping these units to its retailers and distributors in the US and Canada. Thus, if you are on the market for one, check with the retailers or distributors for their pricing and availability.
The TVS-871T is a triple thread device that functions as a NAS/DAS/iSCSI IP-SAN. The unit is packed with two Thunderbolt 2 ports, 10GbE network connectivity and 8 hot-swappable bays for up to 64TB of storage with the ability to expand to whopping 448TB via the QNAP’s TX expansion unit.
