QNAP Launches TBS-464 Mini All-Flash NAS

Nas Data Recovery QNAP

The NVMe SSD-focused NAS Drive from QNAP, the TBS-464, is the first entry by the brand in their largely 2022 focused TS-x64 series. The QNAP TBS-464 is a compact NAS that can go with you anywhere and runs almost without any noise. It accepts four M.2 SSDs and has the same management features as QNAP’s full-sized units. Networking is somewhat limited as there are just two 2.5GbE, but the TBS-464 is still a good portable storage and productivity hub.

The QNAP TBS-464 stands alone in the NAS world as a truly portable device, with no direct competition, and accepts four M.2 2280 PCIe Gen3 drives. The largest drive in that form factor is 8TB, for a maximum of 32TB. Drives that size mean QLC storage, though the performance limitation in the TBS-464 is its dual 2.5GbE networking ports, not drive performance.

For management, the TBS-464 runs the QTS 5.0 operating system with all the security, optimization and speed improvement. It’s reasonably responsive on the NAS’s Celeron N5105 quad-core CPU and 8GB of RAM, which isn’t expandable.

In the front area, there are two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports for data transfer, the power button, and an IR receiver for use with the optional remote control. But most of the ports are on the rear; there are two legacy USB 2.0 ports, two 2.5GbE LAN, and two HDMI 2.0 video outputs (good for 4K @ 60Hz). You’ll also see the power jack and a Kensington lock slot.

Due to its compact and elegant design, the QNAP TBS-464 Mini All-Flash NAS is good for modern offices and even to put it directly in our living room. But unfortunately, this NAS is also vulnerable to logical and physical failures, just alike any storage media. If a failure happens, businesses and ordinary users will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider to get their critical data back.
