AMD GX-420MC quad-core 2.0 GHz processor, 4 GB RAM (upgradable to 16 GB)
High performance and AES-NI accelerated encryption
The TS-863XU is equipped with an energy-efficient 64-bit AMD G-Series GX-420MC quad-core 2.0 GHz processor with 4GB DDR3L RAM (upgradable to 16GB), one 10GbE 10GBASE-T port, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, and SSD caching support for excellent multi-tasking performance. With a hardware-accelerated AES-NI encryption, the TS-863XU also provides unmatched encryption performance while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the NAS.
Integrated 10GbE 10GBASE-T connectivity
The TS-863XU comes with a pre-installed single-port 10GBASE-T Ethernet network adapter to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks. 10GbE networks deliver a major speed increase for virtualization tasks, fast backup & restoration, large-data applications, and also enable online video editing without needing the videos to be transferred between the NAS and workstations. Coupled with its large storage capacity potential, the TS-863XU is perfect for companies to store massive data and enjoy increased IT flexibility.
High reliability to ensure business continuity
The business-ready TS-863XU is designed to provide 24/7 operations and services. The support for comprehensive RAID configurations and hot-swapping allow for replacing hard drives without service interruption. QNAP's advanced RAID recovery technology also helps if any healthy drives are accidentally removed from a degraded RAID volume. The system can be recovered by reinserting the wrongly-removed hard drives so the data can still be accessed. The TS-863XU delivers high reliability and efficiency with quad 1GbE LAN support for multiple port-trunking modes including fail-over support.
SSD caching and auto tiering enable optimized storage efficiency
The TS-863XU supports SSD caching to improve the workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as virtualization. Qtier™ Technology empowers the TS-863XU with auto tiering that continuously optimizes storage utilization across high-performance SSD and high-capacity SATA drives. The new Qtier™ 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSD.
Block-based iSCSI LUN: Ideal choice for virtualization storage
The TS-863XU supports block-based iSCSI LUN that provides a more reliable and isolated environment than file-based LUN. Supporting VMware®, Citrix®, Microsoft® Hyper-V® and Windows Server® 2016, the TS-863XU provides a high-performance, reliable and affordable storage solution for virtualization environments, while also supporting VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supporting the QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications.
All-in-one solution for hosting virtual machines and containers
Virtualization Station and Container Station introduce a hybrid approach to virtualization. No matter your virtualization needs, you can count on QNAP for complete virtualization support.
Virtualization Station allows you to run multiple Windows®, Linux®, UNIX® and Android™ virtual machines and access them via a web browser or VNC (Virtual Network Computing). Businesses can run virtualized server applications on a single NAS without the need for additional physical servers.
Container Station integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies. You can download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry®. It supports container import/export and permission settings. It’s easy deployment, portable, and efficient.
QTS – The intelligent, intuitive and creative NAS operating system
With modularized multiple applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more, making your NAS experience easier, efficient, and more flexible! The new Qboost provides a NAS optimization tool that helps accelerate applications, free up system resources, and schedule applications. The built-in App Center with hundreds of install-on-demand apps also opens up vast potential for extensive NAS functionality. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring you optimized cloud experiences and incorporates advanced features.
Complete backup planning
The TS-863XU provides a reliable, flexible backup & disaster recovery solution to assist organizations in routine backup jobs with cost-efficiency and high productivity.
Windows and Mac backup
Use the license-free QNAP NetBak Replicator utility to back up/restore Windows® files, alongside Time Machine® support for Mac® devices. It is easy, fast and convenient.
Hybrid Backup Sync
Consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) for easily transferring data to local, remote and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan.
Snapshots for Volume & LUN
Snapshots are essential for NAS data protection, and its block-level feature makes it a dependable method for protecting data in the face of the growing threat of ransomware. The TS-863XU supports up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN, and maximum 1,024 snapshots per NAS.
With high performance, potentially huge storage capacities, integrated virtualization solutions, and support for snapshots that record the state of the system at any time, the TS-863XU are perfect for backing up virtual machines.
Optimized collaboration with seamless file sharing and sync
The TS-863XU 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 Qsync (a utility that turns a QNAP NAS into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization) any file uploaded to the TS-863XU will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. Files can be centrally managed using File Station, including files from mobile devices and optical disc drives. File Station also allows you to mount a remote NAS, and transfer files between your NAS and public cloud services for greater convenience.
Whole new QVR Pro surveillance solution
QNAP’s new QVR Pro surveillance solution allows you to arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the TS-863XU and leverage the advantages of storage manageability from QTS. With QVR Pro, camera management, storage space allocation, camera live view and playback is greatly simplified. You can also use the QVR Pro Client mobile app to monitor your cameras from anywhere, or use USB webcams as ONVIF network camera with the QUSBCam2 app.
Flexible and economical storage expansion
You need an easy solution to increase storage capacity when running out of space. QNAP provides several ways to expand your NAS storage as needed to accommodate data and business growth.
Use VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) to expand your storage capacity by using the unused storage of other QNAP NAS. Up to 8 QNAP NAS can be mounted as local disks on the TS-863XU.
Upgrade RAID Capacity
Hot swap lower-capacity drives with larger-capacity drives so that your QNAP NAS can grow with your business.
Migrate to a New NAS
Install your NAS hard drives into a larger QNAP NAS and retain all your existing data and configurations.

Qnap 19"Rack NAS TS 863XU 4G reviews
What is the maximum storage TS-863XU-4G NAS can handle?
26/10/2020 | Guest
It is better to ask SPAN for free compatibility checks. But as today you could fill it with 8X 18TB Seagate Ironwolf. This would give you a total raw storage of 144TB
Can I use any drives with this NAS?
25/10/2020 | Guest
Yes, but we would recommend to use WD Red or Seagate Ironwolf. They consume less energy and generate less vibration and noise.
Can I add a 2TB HDD and a 2nd one later with RAID1?
24/10/2020 | Guest
Yes, you can migrate from Basic single disk to RAID 1
Can I upgrade the RAM on this NAS?
23/10/2020 | Guest
Looking at the specs, this NAS should allow RAM upgrade. Ask SPAN.COM for free compatibility checks.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price for TS-863XU-4G?Link to a TS-863XU-4G review page Is this enclosure suitable for a SSD - such as Samsung EVO SATA III SSD
22/10/2020 | Guest
Yes, it will work with Samsung, WD or Seagate SSD. In fact this will improve the internal speed and make apps run faster.
