Running the new 64-bit QTS 4.3 operating system, the TVS-882ST2 supports the Thunderbolt to Ethernet (T2E) Converter that allows the Thunderbolt port to act as an Ethernet connection. This allows users of devices without Ethernet ports to connect to networks without requiring an extra adapter. Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapters (sold separately) can also be used with the TVS-882ST2 to provide additional connectivity options.

"The TVS-882ST2 is a powerful NAS that provides incredible performance and connectivity to meet the needs of storage-intensive tasks such as high-resolution media editing. By exclusively using 2.5" drives, the TVS-88ST2 is also incredibly compact and especially suited for small studios and other space-conscious environments," said by Jason Hsu, QNAP Product Manager. "Users can choose to use normal HHD or SDD with either Thunderbolt 2 or 10GbE high-speed transferring interface to complete their daily tasks like data access, data sharing or video editing."

More than being a high-speed storage solution to boost the workflow for video producer and organization, the TVS-882ST2 can empower various digital applications with its abundant functions. Virtualization Station allows users to host Windows, Linux, UNIX and Android™ based virtual machines on the NAS; Container Station integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies; QvPC Technology allows the TVS-882ST2 to be used as a PC by connecting a keyboard, mouse and HDMI display; Linux Station also allows the TVS-882ST2 to be used as a Ubuntu®-based PC.

The TVS-882ST2 is easily expandable to meet growing data requirements. Users can connect up to six Thunderbolt 2 expansion enclosures (TX-800P or TX-500P or two USB 3.0 expansion enclosures (UX-800P or UX-500P) to the TVS-882ST2 to maximize storage space. With VJBOD (Virtual JBOD), users can also leverage the TVS-882ST2 to expand the storage space of other QNAP NAS and create virtual storage pools and volumes on virtual disks for operating NAS services.
