QM2 expansion card rede?nes NAS function
QNAP's QM2 is a PCIe expansion card that features dual M.2 SSD slots and 10GbE connectivity (individual cards may vary in functionality). This allows users to easily set up SSD caching or to enable Qtier auto-tiering technology to optimize NAS performance. 10GbE-compatible models can also future proof the TS-453B for use with 10GbE networks. Equipped with a dedicated cooling module, the QM2 can maintain its high performance even when tasked with the highest workloads.
OLED panel with capacitive touch buttons
The TS-453B features an all-new design with a sliding cover. The tool-less 3.5" hard drive installation makes it easier for users to set up and maintain the TS-453B. The OLED front panel displays system information (including temperatures, fan speed, and the capacity of hard drives, volumes and LUN) allowing you to quickly view the overall system status. Dust-proof capacitive touch buttons allow you to easily wake up the screen, change network IP settings and host password or even restart and shut down the system.
Directly access files with USB-C QuickAccess
The TS-453B features an innovative USB-C QuickAccess port that allows you to complete the first-time installation and setup of your TS-453B without requiring network connectivity. The files and data stored on the TS-453B can also be directly accessed by using Qfinder Pro and a USB Type-C cable. You can also assign access rights to users for different folders to prevent unauthorized access to important files.
Data backup, recovery, and synchronization
QNAP Hybrid Backup Sync provides a well-rounded solution for data backup, file synchronization and disaster recovery. With Hybrid Backup Sync, you can easily and securely backup data from your NAS to several local, remote and cloud storage spaces. In the event of system crashes or critical hardware failure, you can quickly restore data from these storage spaces, minimizing downtime and reducing overall loss. Hybrid Backup Sync also takes advantage of cloud storage for one-way sync of your data to cloud storage through RTRR, Rsync, FTP, SMB protocol, or two-way sync your NAS with remote NAS/cloud services.
Share and sync files across devices
The TS-453B supports SMB, NFS and AFP, allowing you to quickly share files to Windows, Mac, and Linux /UNIX devices. With QNAP's Qsync utility, the TS-453B becomes a safe data center for file synchronization with huge storage potential. Any file uploaded to TS-453B can be synchronized to all the linked devices such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. You can also sync shared folders to increase the flexibility of collaboration and file sharing. The SDXC card slot makes it easier to directly access and back up files stored on them.
QTS-Linux dual systems, geared for the IoT era
The TS-453B's QTS-Linux dual systems are based on QNAP's advanced virtualization technologies. The revolutionary architecture of the TS-453B enables users not only to download rich apps from QTS App Center but also to develop or utilize IoT packages for Linux and display them using HDMI output. With the TS-453B, you can develop and install various IoT packages on demand and centrally store the data on the TS-453B, benefiting from a secure private storage and development solution.
Datastore for virtualized environments
The TS-453B is an iSCSI/ IP-SAN storage that supports VMware and Citrix, and is compatible with Microsoft Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012 R2, fulfilling the need for flexible deployment and management in virtualization environments. The TS-453B 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.
Storage for hosting virtual machines and containerized applications
Virtualization Station allows you to host virtual machines (VM) on the TS-453B and access them via a web browser or VNC. Virtualization Station supports multiple operating systems, fast VM creation, VM backup & restoration, VM import/export, snapshot, and Device Management for centrally managing VMs. Virtualization Station allows the TS-453B, VMs and containers to share the same LAN port. No longer constrained by physical network performance, high-speed virtual switches greatly increases data transfer between VMs, containers and NAS through the internal interface. The TS-453B also features Container Station, which integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies. You can operate multiple isolated Linux systems on the TS-453B as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry . Containers Station also supports the QIoT Containers platform that helps quickly structure your IoT environment and deployment on your private IoT cloud.
Secure access with VPN & Proxy Server
The new QVPN combines VPN server and VPN client functionality. Through QVPN, the TS-453B can be used as a VPN server with L2TP/ IPsec, OpenVPN, and PPTP support, allowing you to securely access data shared within the private local network. The TS-453B can also be used as a VPN Client to connect to other VPN servers or virtual private network through PPTP and OpenVPN for secure data transmission. VPN Client also allows your NAS to connect to multiple servers at the same time. You can connect your devices to your NAS and the VPN server at home to access data on the LAN and via VPN Client on your NAS, you can connect to international VPN servers for accessing regionally-restricted services such as Netflix and Hulu in HD Station. The TS-453B provides you with various VPN options and helps secure your data transmission.
QTS 4.3 - The most intelligent and intuitive NAS operating system
With modularized multiple applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more. New intelligent agent services have also been added to simplify system operations and management. The user-friendly QTS features an intelligent desktop that allows you to find desired functions quickly, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently with greater working efficiency, and provides a built-in App Center with install-on-demand apps to extend NAS functionality. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences and incorporates advanced features.
Qfiling automates your file organization
Qfiling helps automate file organization for sorting files spread through multiple folders, helping to reduce the time needed for finding important files. Users can categorize files and determine filing conditions; and schedule filing tasks to be carried out periodically. The "Recipe" feature allows users to save frequently-used filing conditions as an "exclusive recipe", then the next Qfiling task can be run with just one click using the recipe.
