- Upgrade your NAS to 2.5 GbE networks
The TS-253D comes with two 2.5 GbE RJ45 LAN ports that allow you to use existing CAT.5e cables to upgrade network speeds from 1 Gigabit to 2.5 Gigabit. The dual 2.5 GbE ports also support Port Trunking for up to 5 Gbps! By using QNAP's N-BASET/Multi-Gig USB 3.2 Gen 1 to 5 GbE adapter (Model name QNA-UC5G1T) or 5 GbE PCIe expansion card (Model name QXG-5G1T-111C), your laptop or desktop computer can easily connect to 2.5 GbE networks with the TS-253D to benefit from higher network speeds.
- Transform your network with a wallet-friendly 2.5 GbE switch
Upgrading your network shouldn't break the bank, and 2.5 GbE connectivity provides immediately noticeable improvements compared to standard 1GbE. The QSW-1105-5T is an unmanaged switch with five 2.5 GbE ports (backwards compatible with 1G/100M) and supports CAT. 5e cables to connect multiple computers and NAS. The QSW-1105-5T is energy-saving, low-noise, plug-and-use, and supports loop detection and blocking to provide a simple and effective high-speed network environment.
- Quad-core 2.0 GHz (burst up to 2.7 GHz) with up to 8 GB memory
The TS-253D is powered by an Intel Celeron J4125 quad-core 2.0 GHz processor (bursts up to 2.7 GHz), features up to 8 GB DDR4 memory, and supports SATA 6 Gb/s drives. The support of Intel AES-NI encryption engine boosts encryption performance while also maintaining the security of your NAS data. You can flexibly install SSDs for cache acceleration to maximize network and storage performance for data-intensive applications.
- Increase HBS backup efficiency with 2.5 GbE 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.
- 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.
- 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) 60 Hz 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 QUSBCam app.
- Expand your storage with USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) - better than eSATA
Flexibly expand the storage capacity of the TS-253D via USB or multi-lane SATA interfaces. You can choose a high-speed USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) TL series JBOD, USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) TR series RAID expansion enclosures, or SATA 6 Gbps TL series JBOD. They provide economical, flexible, high-performance and high-capacity storage expansion solutions for NAS, PC and servers.
- Flexible and economical storage expansion
QNAP provides easy storage capacity expansion solutions. Here are several ways to expand your TS-253D storage as needed to accommodate data and business growth.
The Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) trend has driven higher bandwidth demands for wired and wireless network connections. By integrating Intel Celeron J4125 quad-core 2.0 GHz processor and 2.5 GbE connectivity, the TS-253D not only provides modern businesses an excellent NAS solution to upgrade to 2.5 GbE environments for productive daily backup/restore tasks, but also provides gamers with ample storage for their vast game collections. Up to 5 Gbps transfer speeds can be made by setting port trunking with the two built-in 2.5 GbE ports. The TS-253D also supports PCIe expansion, multi-cloud backup, cloud storage gateways, 4K HDMI output and real-time transcoding, alongside expandable storage capacity and feature-rich apps to perform as a cost-efficient, reliable 2.5 GbE NAS.
