Compact, near-silent, and versatile, the 4-bay M.2 SSD NASbook TBS-453A is ideal for office meetings and multimedia applications. Featuring a quad-core Intel® 1.6GHz processor, a built-in 4-port network switch, and using up to 4 M.2 SSDs for storage, the TBS-453A not only provides full-fledged NAS functions with RAID protection, but also can act as a switch and share network access with multiple users regardless of being powered on or off. Coupled with its dual HDMI output and 4K H.264 video display & transcoding abilities, the TBS-453A can easily be carried to meetings to present stored files and quality multimedia content. The TBS-453A also supports the open-source Linux® platform that allows you to directly utilize feature-rich Linux® apps, enjoying a private cloud combining storage and IoT applications.
Designed with a “NASbook” concept, the TBS-453A uses a thin, B5-sized case to make it easy to setup anywhere in the office. Compared with a normal NAS, the TBS-453A’s usage of M.2 SSDs (instead of conventional hard drives) allows it to be significantly smaller and quieter. The RAM and M.2 SSDs are also easily accessible for installation and upgrading by removing the rubber pads and thumb screws on the bottom of the TBS-453A.
The TBS-453A supports QNAP’s exclusive QvPC technology and comes with dual HDMI output, enabling you to use the NAS as a PC with a keyboard, mouse and HDMI monitors. You can configure the displayed content on the two monitors in either a “duplicated” or “extended” desktop configuration. Duplicating will display the same content on both displays, and extended allows users to display applications over two displays for improved multitasking convenience and productivity.
The TBS-453A can also be used as an amazing media player by using HD Station to enjoy rich apps including Plex Home Theater, Google Chrome™, Mozilla Firefox®, and more. Alternatively, you can directly use the TBS-453A as a PC by using Linux Station to enjoy the incredibly popular open source Linux® operating system.
The TBS-453A is provided with a 65W 19V compact AC adapter and supports a DC power supply of 10-20V for maximum flexibility, making it suitable for industrial, factory and other environments that need a wide range of input voltages.
The TBS-453A features QTS-Linux dual systems which build on QNAP’s advanced virtualization technologies. The revolutionary architecture of the TBS-453A enables users not only to enjoy the various advanced features introduced in QTS 4.2, download rich apps from QTS App Center but also to develop or utilize IoT packages for Linux® and display them using HDMI output. With the TBS-453A, you can develop and install various IoT packages on demand and centrally store the data on the TBS-453A, benefiting from a secure private storage and development solution. Simply plug in a keyboard, mouse and HDMI monitor to the TBS-453A, and use the Linux Station as if you were using a PC*. You can also operate the Linux Station as a remote desktop via web browser for instant management**.
* To use the Linux Station, you must install it from the App Center.
** The remote desktop function does not support remote audio output.
Virtualization Station allows you to host virtual machines (VM) on the TBS-453A and access them via a web browser or VNC. Virtualization Station supports multiple operating systems, fast VM creation, VM backup & restoration, VM import/export, snapshot, and Device Management for centrally managing VM. Virtualization Station allows the TBS-453A and VMs to share the same LAN port. No longer constrained by physical network performance, high-speed Virtual Switches greatly increases data transfer between VMs as well as between VMs and NAS through the internal interface. You can also download VMs on demand from online VM markets and import them to the TBS-453A without any complex procedures.
The TBS-453A also features the game-changing container technology for server virtualization with QNAP Container Station. It exclusively integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux® systems on the TBS-453A as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry®. Container Station also supports the Online Document app*, which allows you to directly view, edit and store files of various types anytime on your NAS, including Office documents, images and text files.
The TBS-453A offers various data recovery options. The web-based snapshot tool helps easily backup and restore data on the TBS-453A back to any point of time. You can take up to 1024 snapshots for both volumes and LUN, efficiently replicate volume/LUN snapshots via Snapshot Replica to remote servers by copying only the changes made, and quickly clone a volume /LUN snapshot as a local volume without interrupting the current system operation. Windows users can also directly restore files from snapshots with the Previous Versions feature, saving time and effort without requiring IT support. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real-time or scheduled data backup to a remote QNAP NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files between remote and local folders. You can enjoy backup versioning to preserve a certain amount of versions, with options of simple versioning to schedule how many versions should be retained and for how long, or smart versioning with a rotation scheme that automatically replaces earlier backup versions. The TBS-453A also supports the rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on a scheduled basis. Data can also be backed up to and restored from a range of cloud storage services, including Amazon® S3, Amazon® Glacier, Microsoft® Azure, ElephantDrive®, Dropbox®, Google Drive™, Google Cloud Storage™, and more.
QNAP NetBak Replicator supports real-time and scheduled data backup on Windows including Outlook email archiving. Time Machine® is also supported to provide Mac® OS X users with a solution to effortlessly backup data to the TBS-453A. A wide range of third-party backup software such as Acronis® True Image and Symantec® Backup Exec are also supported
The TBS-453A supports Qsirch, a proprietary near real-time search tool for quick file searching. In addition to thumbnail previews, Qsirch now allows you to find and preview Gmail emails that are backed up on the TBS-453A. Qsirch even remembers your search history allowing you to quickly navigate to files you’ve previously searched for. Qsirch is a huge productivity boost that greatly reduces the time spent looking for files on the NAS, allowing you to focus on other tasks. The revamped Qsirch 2.1 adds a Google Chrome Extension™ that allows you to search for files on your NAS when you use Google Search™.
The built-in App Center provides various install-on-demand apps developed by QNAP and third-party developers, including tools for backup/sync, business, content management, communications, download, entertainment, and much more. It is also a centralized location for managing & updating installed apps once newer versions are released, adding potentially limitless opportunities for the TBS-453A.
