In response to the coming era of Internet of Things (IoT), the TS-853A innovatively supports the open-source Linux® platform as a gateway for IoT solutions to other smart devices. The TS-853A 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-853A. The secure, reliable TS-853A 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-853A 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-853A to an HD/4K display.
QTS-Linux dual systems, geared for the IoT era
The TS-853A’s QTS-Linux dual systems are based upon QNAP’s advanced virtualization technologies. The revolutionary architecture of the TS-853A 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-853A, you can develop and install various IoT packages on demand and centrally store the data on the TS-853A, benefiting from a secure private storage and development solution. Simply plug in a keyboard, mouse and HDMI monitor to the TS-853A, 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-853A delivers up to 410 MB/s read speed and runs tasks smoothly and quickly. The TS-853A can automatically increase the processor's clock speed from 1.6GHz to 2.08GHz when performing CPU-intensive tasks. The TS-853A features Intel® AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption engine to drive transfer speeds of up to 420 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-853A.
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.
Qsirch - a smarter, faster way to search
The TS-853A 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-853A. 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 adds a Google Chrome Extension that allows you to search for files on your NAS when you use Google Search.
- *Qsirch 2.1 will be available from QTS 4.2.1
Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage
The TS-853A 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-853A 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-853A supports SAMBA v4 and can act as a Windows domain controller to manage privilege settings.
