  • 1Description

This B&H Kit combines the QNAP TS-253A Two-Bay NAS Enclosure with two 4TB internal hard drives for a total capacity of 8TB.

The TS-253A runs on the QTS 4.2 operating system and is able to function as a NAS server for data backup, file archiving and synchronization, remote access, and home entertainment. It is designed for SMB users and is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX systems. The TS-253A is also able to perform on-the-fly and offline video transcoding; including Full HD 1920 x 1080 content and playback of 4K content with 7.1 channel surround sound via the HDMI ports.

The TS-253A is powered by a 1.6 GHz Intel Celeron N3150 processor that comes with four cores so you can run multiple functions simultaneously. The CPU can also achieve speeds of up to 2.08 GHz, the built-in 4GB of DDR3L RAM allows quick access to frequently-used files and programs, and network connectivity is achieved via two Gigabit Ethernet ports.

While this 2-bay enclosure includes two 4TB 3.5" SATA III hard drives, it also has the ability to natively accept 2.5" SATA III hard drives or SSD drives. In terms of data redundancy, a variety of RAID modes are supported including 0, 1, single disk, and JBOD. Read speeds of the TS-253A can reach up to 224 MB/s when configured in RAID 0. Additionally, data can be protected with AES 256-bit encryption while keeping the same read speeds.

QNAP has equipped this NAS enclosure with two HDMI ports along with four USB 3.0 ports. You may connect up to two displays as well as a keyboard and a mouse to control this NAS without the need of another computer. Furthermore, the two HDMI ports utilize the visual performance of integrated Intel HD Graphics to deliver 4K resolutions.

The TS-253A supports data recovery and redundancy options. In addition to backup support on Windows and Mac, it offers real time or scheduled data backup to a remote NAS or FTP server as well as rsync to back up to another remote server on a scheduled basis, such as cloud storage.
