Description

The TS-1253BU is a 2U rackmount NAS that easily fits into a standard 19-inch rack, providing an ideal storage solution in the server room for small and medium businesses. The TS-1253BU comes with a PCIe slot for boosting potential applications: the QNAP QM2 expansion card can be installed to add an M.2 SSD cache/10GbE connectivity, a compatible wireless card can be installed to use the TS-1253BU as a wireless access point, and a USB 3.1 10 Gbps card can be added for easier backup to/from multiple external storage. The TS-1253BU also provides a wide range of value-added features: 4K video playback and real-time transcoding; deployment of virtual environments through Virtualization Station and Container Station; centralized management of remote Windows, Linux and IPMI-compatible devices with QRM+; and web automation services with IFTTT Agent.

  • Extend NAS functionality with PCIe expansion

    The TS-1253BU has a PCIe expansion slot, providing flexibility in extending NAS functionality and potential applications. Install a QNAP QM2 card to provide M.2 SSD caching/10GbE connectivity, or use the TS-1253BU as a wireless access point by installing a compatible wireless network card, or boost the USB connectivity of the TS-1253BU by installing a USB 3.1 10 Gbps card.
  • QM2 expansion card rede?nes NAS function

    QNAP's QM2 is a PCIe expansion card that features dual M.2 SSD slots and 10GbE connectivity (individual cards may vary in functionality). This allows users to easily set up SSD caching or to enable Qtier auto-tiering technology to optimize NAS performance. 10GbE-compatible models can also future proof the TS-1253BU for use with 10GbE networks. Equipped with a dedicated cooling module, the QM2 can maintain its high performance even when tasked with the highest workloads.
  • SSD cache acceleration

    The TS-1253BU supports SSD caching. Users can install an SSD in drive bay 1 and bay 2 to boost IOPS performance of storage volumes. It is perfect for improving the overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs. Coupled with Qtier auto-tiering technology (which now supports "On Demand Allocation Priority"), users can customize storage allocation to best suit their system environment and application demands.
  • Datastore for virtualized environments

    The TS-1253BU is an iSCSI/IP-SAN storage that supports VMware and Citrix, and is compatible with Microsoft Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012 R2, fulfilling the need for flexible deployment and management in virtualization environments. The TS-1253BU supports VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supports QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications.
  • Secure access with VPN & Proxy Server

    The new QVPN combines VPN server and VPN client functionality. Through QVPN, the TS-1253BU can be used as a VPN server with L2TP/ IPsec, OpenVPN, and PPTP support, allowing you to securely access data shared within the private local network. The TS-1253BU can also be used as a VPN Client to connect to other VPN servers or virtual private network through PPTP and OpenVPN for secure data transmission. VPN Client also allows your NAS to connect to multiple servers at the same time. You can connect your devices to your NAS and the VPN server at home to access data on the LAN and via VPN Client on your NAS, you can connect to international VPN servers for accessing regionally-restricted services such as Netflix and Hulu in HD Station. The TS-1253BU provides you with various VPN options and helps secure your data transmission.
  • 4K HDMI output for an excellent audiovisual experience

    Featuring advanced 9th-generation Intel HD Graphics, the TS-1253BU supports dual-channel 4K H.264/H.265 hardware decoding and real-time transcoding, allowing you to convert videos to universal file formats that can be smoothly played on multiple devices. QNAP Linux Station is integrated with Ubuntu OS, allowing you to download and install versatile multimedia apps from Ubuntu Software Center, such as Plex Media Server, KMPlayer, LibreOffice and VLC. QNAP's HD Station also allows you to directly enjoy multimedia using HD Player or third-party players such as Plex Home Theater. By connecting the TS-1253BU to a HDTV or A/V receiver you can enjoy watching videos with up to 4K resolution. The free QNAP remote control also provides you with convenient control of your multimedia experience.
  • Easily expand storage capacity

    Besides attaching a QNAP expansion enclosure, the TS-1253BU's storage capacity can also be increased by using VJBOD. With VJBOD, the storage capacity of other QNAP NAS 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 easily 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.
