Windows® and Mac® backup
Use the license-free QNAP NetBak Replicator utility to back up and restore files from Windows® computers. Apple’s Time Machine® is supported for backing up Mac® computers.

icon-2

Snapshots for Volume & LUN
Snapshots are essential for NAS data protection, and their block-level feature makes it a dependable data protection method in the face of growing ransomware threats. The TS-253D supports up to 256 snapshots per volume/LUN, and up to 1,024 snapshots per NAS.


Increase HBS backup efficiency with 2.5GbE connectivity

Hybrid Backup Sync (HBS) consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization functions (using RTRR, Rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) for easily transferring data in the TS-253D to local, remote and cloud storage spaces (including Microsoft One Drive®, Google Drive™, Dropbox®, and more) as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan. Supporting QuDedup technology that eliminates duplicated data at the source, HBS reduces backup data size and speeds up future backup tasks. This is also beneficial for accelerating multi-version backups for greater protection against data loss.

HBS backup efficiency


Abundant I/O capability with PCIe expansion

The TS-253D features one PCIe 2.0 slot that allows for various expansion cards for expanding application potential.


SSD caching and auto-tiering enable 24/7 optimized storage efficiency

While SSD prices continue to fall, and SSD capacity and performance continue to increase, organizations can easily take advantage of SSD strengths. The TS-253D supports numerous SSD-aware features that significantly maximize NAS performance with high cost-effectiveness.

SSD over-provisioning
(Over-provisioning)
SSD cache acceleration Qtier for auto-tiering
You can add additional SSD over-provisioning (1% ~60%) to avoid write amplification and improve SSD random write speeds and endurance. You can potentially attain enterprise-grade SSD performance levels from affordable consumer SSDs! Enables SSD caching for increasing IOPS performance and reducing latency for storage volume. This feature is perfect for IOPS-demanding applications including databases and virtualization. The TS-253D also supports write-only cache to boost write-intensive applications. Qtier technology drives auto-tiered storage with continuous data optimization across high-performance SSDs and high-capacity HDDs based on access frequency. I/O-Aware Qtier can reserve a cache-like space in the SSD tiered to handle burst I/O in real time.

Ultimate visual experience with 4K HDMI display and real-time video transcoding

The TS-253D has an HDMI 2.0 port that supports 4K (4096 x 2160) 60Hz output, allowing you to directly view multimedia content saved on the NAS on a bigger screen. The support of high-quality 4K video transcoding enables the NAS to convert videos to universal file formats that can be smoothly played on multiple devices. The TS-253D also can stream videos through DLNA®, Chromecast™, and more to satisfy versatile multimedia application needs.

Note: The TS-253D’s hardware provides hardware decoding, encoding, and transcoding capabilities. However, playback quality may vary due to factors including playback software, file formats, system usage, and available bandwidth.


Build a Plex Media Server

By installing Plex® Media Server from App Center, setting up the Plex® Media Server on your NAS is only a few minutes away. You can stream media files stored on the TS-253D to mobiles and media streaming devices (including DLNA®, Roku®, Amazon Fire TV® and Google Chromecast™).

Note: PlexPass is required for Plex Media Server hardware transcoding.


Move business data to the cloud flexibly and economically

The TS-253D perfectly integrates NAS with mainstream cloud services. By deploying cloud storage gateways and enabling local caching on the NAS, you can seamlessly use the cloud for storage, backup, and data recovery with low-latency access, providing an innovative hybrid cloud experience.

HybridMount

HybridMount File-based Cloud Gateway

Flexibly expand your storage capacity by connecting to cloud storage. You can leverage QTS apps to manage and edit your cloud files or multimedia files. HybridMount is ideal for file server online collaboration and file-level data analysis.

VJBOD Cloud Block

VJBOD Cloud Block-based Cloud Gateway

VJBOD Cloud supports streamlined NAS backup to object cloud storage. The block-based data transmission uploads random data and large files to the cloud in blocks, and only transmits block-based volume or LUN changes (such as addition, modification, or deletion). This is ideal for enterprise-level applications with large file transfer requirements, such as databases, VM volumes, and videos.


All-in-one server to host virtual machines and containers

Regardless of your virtualization needs, you can count on Virtualization Station and Container Station for complete virtualization support. You can use Network & Virtual Switch to allocate adequate physical network resources to virtual machines, containers, and the NAS to simplify network deployment.

Virtualization Station

Virtualization Station

Optimized collaboration with seamless file sharing and sync

The TS-253D centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® networks. Coupled with the Qsync utility, any file uploaded to the TS-253D will be made available for all linked devices (such as computers, laptops and mobiles). You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. With the myQNAPcloud service, you can easily and securely connect to the TS-253D via the Internet for accessing, managing, and sharing NAS files. The Windows AD® and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using an existing Windows AD® server, LDAP server, or the TS-253D’s built-in LDAP service.


Secure your premises with integrated surveillance solutions

QVR Pro allows you to arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the TS-253D and leverage the advantages of scalable NAS storage. It greatly simplifies camera management, storage space allocation, camera live view, and playback. Supporting over 5,000 IP cameras (including all standard fisheye cameras available on the market), QVR Pro provides 8 license-free channels for surveillance monitoring and the optional QVR Pro Camera Channel Extension License for more extensive security deployment. You can also use QVR Pro Client’s mobile app to monitor anytime, or use a USB webcam as an ONVIF® network camera with the QUSBCam2 app.

*The maximum number of channels supported varies by NAS model, network configuration, and camera settings.
