The TS-453BU-RP also provides a wide range of value-added features: 4K video playback and real-time transcoding; deployment of virtual environments through Virtualization Station and Container Station; centralized management of remote Windows®, Linux® and IPMI-compatible devices with QRM+; and web automation services with IFTTT Agent.
Intel® Celeron® J3455 quad-core 1.5GHz CPU with AES-NI Encryption
Powered by the latest 14 nm Intel® Celeron® J3455 quad-core 1.5GHz processor (burst up to 2.3 GHz), up to 8GB DDR3L RAM, four Gigabit LAN ports, and SATA 6Gb/s, the TS-453BU-RP runs tasks smoothly and quickly with up to 369 MB/s read/ write speeds. The TS-453BU-RP features Intel® AES-NI accelerated encryption to drive transfer speeds of up to 336 MB/s with AES 256-bit encryption for both full NAS volumes and shared folders, boosting system performance while ensuring the confidentiality of sensitive business data stored in the NAS.
Extend NAS functionality with PCIe expansion
The TS-453BU-RP has a PCIe expansion slot, providing flexibility in extending NAS functionality and potential applications. Install a QNAP QM2 card to provide M.2 SSD caching/10GbE connectivity, or use the TS-453BU-RP as a wireless access point by installing a compatible wireless network card, or boost the USB connectivity of the TS-453BU-RP by installing a USB 3.1 10Gbps card.
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-453BU-RP 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.
SSD cache acceleration
The TS-453BU-RP supports SSD caching. Users can install an SSD in drive bay 1 and bay 2 to boost IOPS performance of storage volumes. It is perfect for improving the overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs. Coupled with Qtier™ auto-tiering technology (which now supports "On Demand Allocation Priority"), users can customize storage allocation to best suit their system environment and application demands.
Data backup, recovery, and synchronization
Hybrid Backup Sync provides a well-rounded solution for data backup, file synchronization and disaster recovery for you to 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.
Datastore for virtualized environments
The TS-453BU-RP 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-453BU-RP 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-453BU-RP 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-453BU-RP, 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-453BU-RP also features Container Station, which integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies. You can operate multiple isolated Linux® systems on the TS-453BU-RP 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-453BU-RP 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-453BU-RP 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-453BU-RP provides you with various VPN options and helps secure your data transmission.
