Extend NAS functionality with PCIe expansion
The TS-853BU-RP 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-853BU-RP as a wireless access point by installing a compatible wireless network card, or boost the USB connectivity of the TS-853BU-RP by installing a USB 3.1 10Gbps card.
QM2 expansion card redeﬁnes 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-853BU-RP 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.
*Selected models with 10GbE connectivity is backward compatible with 5GbE/2.5GbE/1GbE/100MbE network.
SSD cache acceleration
The TS-853BU-RP 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.
Data backup, recovery, and synchronization
Hybrid Backup Sync provides a well-rounded solution for data backup, file synchronization and disaster recovery for you to easily and securely backup data from your NAS to several local, remote and cloud storage spaces. In the event of system crashes or critical hardware failure, you can quickly restore data from these storage spaces, minimizing downtime and reducing overall loss. Hybrid Backup Sync also takes advantage of cloud storage for one-way sync of your data to cloud storage through RTRR, rsync, FTP, SMB protocol, or two-way sync your NAS with remote NAS/cloud services.
QTS-Linux dual systems, geared for the IoT era
The TS-853BU-RP’s QTS-Linux dual systems are based on QNAP’s advanced virtualization technologies. The revolutionary architecture of the TS-853BU-RP enables users not only to 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 TS-853BU-RP, you can develop and install various IoT packages on demand and centrally store the data on the TS-853BU-RP, benefiting from a secure private storage and development solution.
Secure access with VPN & Proxy Server
The new QVPN combines VPN server and VPN client functionality. Through QVPN, the TS-853BU-RP 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-853BU-RP 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-853BU-RP provides you with various VPN options and helps secure your data transmission.
QTS – The most intelligent and intuitive NAS operating system
With modularized multiple applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more. New intelligent agent services have also been added to simplify system operations and management. The user-friendly QTS features an intelligent desktop that allows you to find desired functions quickly, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently with greater working efficiency, and provides a built-in App Center with install-on-demand apps to extend NAS functionality. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences and incorporates advanced features.
Qfiling automates your file organization
Qfiling helps automate file organization for sorting files spread through multiple folders, helping to reduce the time needed for finding important files. Users can categorize files and determine filing conditions; and schedule filing tasks to be carried out periodically. The “Recipe” feature allows users to save frequently-used filing conditions as an “exclusive recipe”, then the next Qfiling task can be run with just one click using the recipe.
Comprehensive surveillance solution providing 24/7 security
Surveillance Station is a professional network surveillance Video Management System (VMS) that offers a user-friendly management interface, over 3,000 compatible IP camera models, and expandable IP camera channel licenses. It supports real-time monitoring, video & audio recording and playback with a wide range of customizable settings. You can also install the Vmobile app on your iOS® or Android™ devices to manage the monitored channels anytime and anywhere, or install the Vcam mobile app to turn your device into a network camera to instantly record to your TS-853BU-RP. The TS-853BU-RP offers 4 free IP camera channels and you can expand up to 40 channels by purchasing additional licenses.
Whole new QVR Pro surveillance solution
The TS-853BU-RP supports QVR Pro (Beta) that integrates QNAP’s professional QVR system into the QTS operating system. You can arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the NAS and leverage the advantages of scalability and storage manageability from QTS. QVR Pro features a flexible monitoring interface that allows adjusting the proportion and monitor view of IP cameras, supports an upgraded timeline feature that provides instant video search and quick view identification in live monitoring mode, and allows for monitoring views and playing back images without switching between windows. Additional functions like batch adding and editing cameras and searching for cameras across different LANs further save the cost and time in deploying and maintaining a complete surveillance system. With the newly-developed QUSBCam2 App, you can use a USB camera as an ONVIF network camera. Simply connect it to your TS-853BU-RP, and you can view real-time images without installing any software. Through QVR Pro, you can even store recordings for playback, allowing you to build a surveillance system with minimum budget.
