Description: Key Features NAS and iSCSI-SAN unified storage solution for server virtualization Supports VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V Supports the Linux OS with direct output via HDMI Equipped with 24-bit digital to analog converter (DAC) for clearer audio The TS-653A NAS server is designed to grow alongside with small and medium businesses, allowing its users to use the NAS as a storage device, but also a multitasking and multifunctional light-weight server. Not only is the TS-653A reliable, it is also packed with business-critical features such as LUN/ Volume Snapshot - allowing files/folders to revert to a previous state in case of any corruption, or file-loss. The TS-653A is powered by the latest Quad-core Intel Celeron N3150 CPU which allow users enjoy 4K (H.264) video playback and 1080P/4K video real-time transcoding right from the NAS to an HD/4K display. The beginning of a new era Powered by the latest 14 nm Intel Celeron N3150 quad-core 1.6GHz processor, dual-channel 4/8GB DDR3L-1600 RAM (upgradable to 8GB), 2 Gigabit LAN ports and SATA 6Gb/s, the TS-653A can deliver up to 224 MB/s read speeds. The TS-653A can automatically increase the processor's clock rate from 1.6GHz to 2.08GHz when performing CPU-intensive tasks. The TS-653A features Intel® AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption engine to drive transfer speeds of up to 224 MB/s with AES 256-bit encryption for both full NAS volume and shared folders, boosting system performance & security while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the TS-653A. Superior real-time and offline 4K video transcoding* Featuring advanced 8th-generation Intel HD Graphics, the TS-653A supports 4K (H.264) hardware decoding and delivers superior real-time 4K (H.264) and 1080p video transcoding to convert videos to universal formats that can be smoothly played on PCs, mobile devices and Smart TVs. With offline transcoding, even when you can only connect using a low-speed Internet connection, you can still enjoy smooth video playback via File Station, Video Station, and the Qfile mobile app by selecting a pre-rendered lower resolution video. The TS-653A also allows you to set a dedicated folder for automatic video transcoding. QTS 4.2 - Simple, convenient and efficient Thanks to the intuitive user interface of QTS, your NAS experience is smarter, smoother and spectacular. Its modern flat design streamlines loading times, and the intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency. Disaster recovery solutions brings peace of mind The TS-653A offers various data recovery options. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real time or scheduled data backup to a remote QNAP NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files to a remote folder from a local folder with better backup efficiency. The TS-653A also supports the rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on a scheduled basis. Data can also be backed up to and restored from a range of cloud storage services, including Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier, Microsoft Azure, ElephantDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Cloud Storage, and more. Restore files with Snapshot QTS Storage Manager adds an easy-to-use web-based snapshot tool for you to easily restore data on the TS-653A back to any point of time in the case of loss important data. You can take snapshots for both volumes and LUN (up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN and maximum 1024 snapshots per NAS ), efficiently replicate volume/LUN snapshots via Snapshot Replica to remote servers by copying only the changes made, and quickly clone a volume /LUN snapshot as a local volume without interrupting the current system operation. You can even set up the system to automatically take a snapshot of the volume before backup via RTRR/rsync, even when the file is opened. Datastore for virtualized environments The TS-653A is also an iSCSI/ IP-SAN storage that supports VMware and Citrix, and is compatible with Microsoft Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012, benefiting flexible deployment and management in any virtualization environments. The TS-653A supports VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supports QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications. Qsirch - A smarter, faster way to search The TS-653A supports Qsirch*, a proprietary near real-time search tool for quick file searching. In addition to thumbnail previews, Qsirch now allows you to find and preview Gmail emails that are backed up on the TS-653A. Qsirch even remembers your search history allowing you to quickly navigate to files you've previously searched for. Qsirch is a huge productivity boost that greatly reduces the time spent looking for files on the NAS, allowing you to focus on other tasks. The revamped Qsirch 2.1 further features a Google Chrome Extension that allows you to search for files on your NAS when you use Google Search. Born for server virtualization The TS-653A comes with the support of QNAP's VM hypervisor - Virtualization Station which allows you to host virtual machines on your NAS, and access them via a web browser or VNC. Virtualization Station further uses SDN (Software-defined Networks) which allows the TS-653A and VMs to share the same LAN port. No longer constrained by physical network performance, high-speed Virtual Switches greatly increases data transfer between VMs as well as between VMs and NAS through the internal interface. This NAS also features with the game-changing Container technology for server virtualization. QNAP's Container Station exclusively integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux systems on the TS-653A as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry. Container Station also supports the Online Document app*, which allows you to directly view, edit and store files of various types anytime on your NAS, including Office documents, images and text files.
