It sports 12 drive bays (eight 3.5" HDDs and four 2.5" SSDs) and two M.2 SSD slots. This equates to over 80TB of fast storage (with 10TB HDDs) which can be accessed via four Thunderbolt 3 ports or two 10GbE Ethernet ports (four 1 GbE ports also on board). The TVS-1282T3 comes with either an Intel Core i5 3.4Ghz or Core i7 3.6Ghz processor and up to 64GB of RAM. The new TVS-1282T3 is currently shipping in the US and Canada markets.
