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) 60Hz 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.
Note: The TS-253D’s hardware provides hardware decoding, encoding, and transcoding capabilities. However, playback quality may vary due to factors including playback software, file formats, system usage, and available bandwidth.

Build a Plex Media Server
By installing Plex® Media Server from App Center, setting up the Plex® Media Server on your NAS is only a few minutes away. You can stream media files stored on the TS-253D to mobiles and media streaming devices (including DLNA®, Roku®, Amazon Fire TV® and Google Chromecast™).
Note: PlexPass is required for Plex Media Server hardware transcoding.

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.

HybridMount file-based cloud gateway
Flexibly expand your storage capacity by connecting to cloud storage. You can leverage QTS apps to manage and edit your cloud files or multimedia files. HybridMount is ideal for file server online collaboration and file-level data analysis.

VJBOD Cloud block-based cloud gateway
VJBOD Cloud supports streamlined NAS backup to object cloud storage. The block-based data transmission uploads random data and large files to the cloud in blocks, and only transmits block-based volume or LUN changes (such as addition, modification, or deletion). This is ideal for enterprise-level applications with large file transfer requirements, such as databases, VM volumes, and videos.

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.

Virtualization Station
Run multiple Windows®, Linux®, UNIX®, and Android™ virtual machines and access them via a web browser or Virtual Network Computing (VNC). Businesses can run virtualized server applications on a single NAS without the need for additional physical servers.

Container Station
Experience LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry®, import and export containers, and create abundant microservices.

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 QUSBCam2 app.

*The maximum number of channels supported varies by NAS model, network configuration, and camera settings. For more information, visit https://www.qnap.com/go/qvr-nas-selector。

27/08/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
What is the maximum storage TS-253D-4G NAS can handle?
It is better to ask SPAN for free compatibility checks. But as today you could fill it with 2X 18TB Seagate Ironwolf. This would give you a total raw storage of 36TB
26/08/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can I use any drives with this NAS?
Yes, but we would recommend to use WD Red or Seagate Ironwolf. They consume less energy and generate less vibration and noise.
25/08/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can I upgrade the RAM on this NAS?
Looking at the specs, this NAS should allow RAM upgrade. Ask SPAN.COM for free compatibility checks.
24/08/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can this be used as a Plex server on its own?
Yes, this NAS should have an App available to install and run Plex independently.
23/08/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Is this enclosure suitable for a SSD - such as Samsung EVO SATA III SSD
Yes, it will work with Samsung, WD or Seagate SSD. In fact this will improve the internal speed and make apps run faster.
