QNAP has unveiled the quad-core Intel-based 2-bay TS-253Be and 4-bay TS-453Be.
With a PCIe expansion slot, the functionality of both NAS can be expanded to meet application needs, including M.2 SSD caching and 10GbE connectivity.
The TS-x53Be series also features HDMI output and 4K H.264/H.265 transcoding to provide greater multimedia experience while its snapshot function helps protect data against potential ransomware threats.
“With the PCIe slot, the TS-x53Be series allows for extending NAS functionalities, including adding SSD caching and 10GbE connectivity, which provides great long-term potential for the NAS,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP.
“For users who require a professional storage that can help streamline workflows and provide a great multimedia experience, the TX-x53Be series is the ideal choice with a reasonable price.”
Powered by an Intel Celeron J3455 quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB/4GB DDR3L RAM, dual Gigabit LAN ports, and supporting SATA 6Gb/s hard drives and SSDs, the TS-x53Be series provides dependable performance of up to 225 MB/s read/write speeds and maintains the same outstanding performance with AES-NI accelerated encryption.
The TS-x53Be series also supports snapshots, allowing for users to quickly recover data in the event of accidental deletion/modification or ransomware attack.
Users can install a QNAP QM2 card to the PCIe slot to add dual M.2 SSDs for enhanced SSD caching performance while also adding 10GbE connectivity. Coupled with the Qtier auto-tiering technology, the TS-xBe series helps achieve optimum storage utilisation ideal for small and medium businesses and organisations.
The TS-xBe series provides five USB Type-A ports that facilitate the transferring of large files. The series also supports dual-channel 4K H.264/H.265 hardware decoding and transcoding, allowing users to play their media files smoothly via connected devices.
The integrated speaker allows for audio alerts and playback while a 3.5mm audio jack allows for the TS-xBe to be connected to dedicated speakers. The dual HDMI output supports up to 4K 30 Hz display. Users can use QNAP’s remote control RM-IR004 and use the QButton app to customise the functions of the buttons for easy navigation.
QNAP say the TS-x53Be series provides a variety of useful applications for everyday tasks from the built-in App Centre.
Users can host virtual machines and containers on the TS-x53Be using Virtualisation Station and Container Station. Storage space can be flexibly expanded using an 8-bay UX-800P or 5-bay UX-500P expansion unit or with QNAP VJBOD technology that allows the unused space of a QNAP NAS to expand the capacity of other QNAP NAS.
