In response to the coming era of Internet of Things (IoT), the TS-653A innovatively supports the open-source Linux® platform as a gateway for IoT solutions to other smart devices. The TS-653A allows users to directly utilize various feature-rich Linux apps, enjoying a private cloud combining storage and IoT applications, and professional developers can develop and run IoT applications directly on the TS-653A. The secure, reliable TS-653A is packed with business-critical features such as Volume/LUN 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® processor which allows users to enjoy 4K (H.264) video playback and 1080p/4K video real-time transcoding directly from the TS-653A to an HD/4K display.
QTS-Linux dual systems, geared for the IoT era
The TS-653A’s QTS-Linux dual systems are based upon QNAP’s advanced virtualization technologies. The revolutionary architecture of the TS-653A 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-653A, you can develop and install various IoT packages on demand and centrally store the data on the TS-653A, benefiting from a secure private storage and development solution. Simply plug in a keyboard, mouse and HDMI monitor to the TS-653A, and use the Linux Station as if you were using a PC*. You can also operate the Linux Station as a remote desktop via web browser for instant management**.
- *Linux Station will be available from QTS 4.2.1. To use the Linux Station, you must install it from the App Center.
- ** The remote desktop function does not support remote audio output
Intel® Celeron® N3150 quad-core CPU fulfills multi-tasking efficiency
Powered by the latest 14 nm Intel® Celeron® N3150 quad-core 1.6GHz processor, dual-channel 4/8GB DDR3L-1600 RAM (upgradable to 8GB), 4 Gigabit LAN ports and SATA 6Gb/s, the TS-653A delivers up to 416 MB/s read speed and runs tasks smoothly and quickly. The TS-653A can automatically increase the processor's clock speed 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 416 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.
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. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences to you, and incorporates more advanced features including volume/LUN snapshot, remote connection to public cloud services in File Station, multi-zone multimedia system, and more.
Restore files with Snapshot
QTS Storage Manager adds an easy-to-use web-based snapshot tool for you to easily backup and restore data on the TS-653A back to any point of time in case you lose any 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.
Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage
The TS-653A supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, Linux®/UNIX® networks. Data, logs and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the TS-653A and protected by an integrated antivirus solution. The Windows AD® and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using an existing Windows AD server, LDAP server or built-in LDAP service. The TS-653A supports SAMBA v4 and can act as a Windows domain controller to manage privilege
File synchronization across multiple devices and clouds
Qsync utility turns your TS-653A into a safe, large-capacity data center for file synchronization. Any file uploaded to the TS-653A will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops or mobile devices. Qsync is especially useful for frequent travelers to manage files and always have the most up-to-date files on different devices. Qsync now provides more new features— it allows you to synchronize shared folders and create group-shared folders exclusive for your project team; it provides centralized management configuration, helping saving IT administers’ time; it also supports centralized configuration and allows you to remotely erase the Qsync folder on a lost device to avoid data breaches, and even restore it after you have retrieved the device. You can also install the Cloud Drive Sync app from QTS App Center to easily sync files with Google Drive™ and Dropbox® cloud storage.
