The TS-453Bmini Four-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP lets you create a custom pool of data to share with network-connected systems. The TS-453Bmini features a vertical design as well as four hot-swap bays, which can accommodate SSDs and HDDs. To manage the data stored on your drives, QNAP has equipped the TS-453Bmini with a 1.5 GHz Intel Celeron J3455 processor, 8GB of DDR3L memory, and QTS 4.3 operating system. Once drives are installed, it provides 225 MB/s read speeds while safeguarding data with an AES-NI encryption chipset. Moreover, you can configure the drives in a RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 5 + hot spare, JBOD, or Single mode.

Connecting the TS-453Bmini to your network can be accomplished by its two Gigabit Ethernet ports, providing redundancy in the event one connection fails. Other notable ports include one USB 2.0 port along with four USB 3.0 ports for accessing printers, external storage drives, keyboards, mice, and more. With an Intel processor, the TS-453Bmini sports an integrated Intel HD Graphics 500 chipset that delivers resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160 through its HDMI port. Moreover, it offers video transcoding abilities, letting you convert videos to an optimized resolution for different types of devices, such as TVs, tablets, and smartphones.

Quad-Core Processor and Hardware-Accelerated AES-NI Encryption
Powered by Intel Celeron J3455 1.5 GHz (burst up to 2.3 GHz) quad-core processor, dual-channel 8GB DDRL RAM, two Gigabit LAN ports, and SATA 6 Gb/s, the TS-453Bmini drives up to 225 MB/s read speed and runs tasks smoothly and quickly under dual network environments. The TS-453Bmini features Intel AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption to drive transfer speeds of up to 225 MB/s with AES 256-bit encryption for both full NAS volume and shared folders, boosting system performance and security while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the TS-453Bmini.
Vertical Design
The glossy TS-453Bmini features a vertical form factor that takes up 29% less desktop space when compared to a horizontal unit. The TS-453Bmini comes with a quiet cooling system and a tool-less design for installing and replacing hot-swappable 3.5" hard drives as well as upgrading the RAM.
Adjustable Smart LED
You can adjust the brightness of all system LED indicators (from a scale from 0 to 100, in 5-step increments) and also schedule the system to automatically dim the LEDs at certain times when needed.
QTS 4.3
The TS-453Bmini is installed with a 64-bit QTS 4.3 operating system. With modular applications and functions, QTS 4.3 enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and more. Intelligent agent services have also been added to simplify system operations and management.

With its intuitive and simplified user interface, QTS features an intelligent desktop allowing 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. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences and incorporates advanced features.
QmailAgent is an online email client that helps you manage multiple email accounts, allowing you to access all of your emails and easily switch between different accounts. It provides complete functionality for composing, reading, and organizing emails. You can even attach files, photos and documents from the TS-453Bmini when composing emails. iOS and Android users can use the QmailClient app to quickly check multiple email accounts with mobile devices and browse & send emails using the QmailAgent on their TS-453Bmini. You can use QmailAgent together with Qsirch, which supports searching through the .eml files stored on the TS-453Bmini, making searching through and managing massive amounts of emails easy.
Qcontactz helps you centrally store and manage contact information for colleagues, business partners, families, and friends. Other features include: importing/exporting CSV or vCARD 3.0 files, automatic identification of frequently-used contacts, encryption for sensitive/confidential contact information, smart searching, and more. Qcontactz offers snapshot backups that enable you to revert to a previous version of your contacts list according to your needs. A companion app for Android phones and iPhone is also available for easy access to contacts. Qcontactz can also be used with QmailAgent to create a suitable email workflow environment.
QTS-Linux Dual Systems
The TS-453Bmini's QTS-Linux dual systems are based upon QNAP's advanced virtualization technologies. After installing Linux Station from the QTS App Center, you can connect a keyboard, mouse, and HDMI display to your NAS and use it as if it was an Ubuntu PC. With the TS-453Bmini, you can develop and install various IoT packages on demand and centrally store the data on the TS-453Bmini, benefiting from a secure private storage and development solution.
Volume & LUN Snapshot
QTS Storage Manager adds an easy-to-use web-based snapshot tool so you can easily backup and restore data on the TS-453Bmini back to any point of time in case you lose any important data. You can take snapshots for volumes and LUN (up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN and maximum 1024 snapshots per NAS), replicate volume/LUN snapshots via Snapshot Replica to remote servers by copying only the changes made, and 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 backing up, via RTRR/rsync, even if files are open.
Storage for Hosting Virtual Machines and Containerized Applications
Virtualization Station allows you to host virtual machines (VM) on the TS-453Bmini and access them via a web browser or VNC. Virtualization Station supports multiple operating systems, VM creation, VM backup & restoration, VM import/export, snapshot, and Device Management for centrally managing VMs. Virtualization Station allows the TS-453Bmini, VMs, and containers to share the same LAN port. No longer constrained by physical network performance, virtual switches increase data transfers between VMs, containers, and NAS through the internal interface. The TS-453Bmini also features Container Station, which integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies. You can operate multiple isolated Linux systems on the TS-453Bmini as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry. Container Station also supports the QIoT Containers platform that helps quickly structure your IoT environment and deployment of your private IoT cloud.
Virtual JBOD
Besides using physical storage expansion enclosures, there is an additional option to expand NAS storage capacity. QNAP VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) is network-based JBOD, allowing you to expand storage of your QNAP NAS with multiple QNAP NAS units. You can mount iSCSI LUNs from a QNAP NAS to the TS-453Bmini as local disks and create virtual storage pools and volumes for operating NAS applications.
Transcoding for 4K HDMI Output
Equipped with 9th-generation Intel HD Graphics, the TS-453Bmini has 4K (H.264) video transcoding abilities and supports digital multi-channel surround sound, allowing you to enjoy a high-quality audiovisual experience. You can easily control HD Station with the included QNAP Remote Control or turn your mobile devices into remote controls by installing the Qremote app.
Cross-Platform File Sharing, Centralized Data Storage
The TS-453Bmini 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-453Bmini. 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.
Backup & Disaster Recovery Solutions
The TS-453Bmini offers flexible backup solutions for Windows and Mac users, Volume/LUN snapshots, Snapshot Replica and Clone, and disaster recovery solutions, including RTRR, rsync, and cloud storage backups.
Disaster Recovery Solutions
Hybrid Backup Sync consolidates backup, restoration, and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) into a single app for transferring data to local, remote, and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan. It supports various cloud services and offers multi-version backup, flexible job scheduling, file compression to save storage space, and more.
The TS-453Bmini supports capacity expansion by connecting an optional QNAP expansion enclosure. With QNAP scale-up solution, the raw storage capacity can be expanded on demand, making the TS-453Bmini a suitable file center with a large storage capacity for digital data.
The TS-453Bmini utilizes a 14nm CPU and DDR3L technology for low power consumption whilst maintaining high performance in system operations. Other eco-friendly designs include scheduled power on/off, hard disk standby mode, and Wake on LAN.
