Through QVR Pro, you can even store recordings for playback.
Expand Storage Capacity
Besides attaching a QNAP expansion enclosure, the TS-1253BU's storage capacity can be increased by using VJBOD. With VJBOD, the storage capacity of other QNAP NAS devices can be used as virtual disks that can be mounted as local disks on the TS-1253BU for shares, applications, or even creating another LUN. You can use the QTS Storage Manager to handle NAS capacity expansion and storage expansion enclosure management. With the support of QJBOD Express (JBOD enclosures roaming), you can migrate data to another QNAP NAS through a JBOD enclosure without network connectivity.

When the TS-1253BU is paired with the UX-1200U-RP Expansion Enclosure, users will have access to up to 24 drives. When paired with the UX-800U-RP, up to 20 drives.
