Its modern flat design streamlines loading times, and the intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences to you, and incorporates more advanced features including volume/LUN snapshot, remote connection to public cloud services in File Station, multi-zone multimedia system, and more.

Disaster recovery solutions brings peace of mind
The TS-653A offers various data recovery options. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real time or scheduled data backup to a remote QNAP NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files to a remote folder from a local folder with better backup efficiency. 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 TS-653A 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.

Restore files with Snapshot
QTS Storage Manager adds an easy-to-use web-based snapshot tool for you to easily backup and restore data on the TS-653A back to any point of time in case you lose any important data. You can take snapshots for both volumes and LUN (up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN and maximum 1024 snapshots per NAS), 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. You can even set up the system to automatically take a snapshot of the volume before backup via RTRR/rsync, even when the file is opened.

Qsirch - a smarter, faster way to search
The TS-653A 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 TS-653A. 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.
*Qsirch 2.1 will be available from QTS 4.2.1

Datastore for virtualized environments
The TS-653A is also an iSCSI/ IP-SAN storage that supports VMware® and Citrix®, and is compatible with Microsoft® Hyper-V® and Windows Server 2012, benefiting flexible deployment and management in virtualization environments. The TS-653A supports VMware VAAI and Microsoft ODX to increase performance by offloading server loading for ESXi server and Hyper-V respectively, and supports QNAP vSphere Client plug-in and QNAP SMI-S provider with enhanced operational efficiency and management in virtualization applications.

Born for server virtualization
Virtualization Station allows you to host virtual machines (VM) on the TS-653A, 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 uses SDN (Software-defined Networks) and allows the TS-653A 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 TS-653A without any complex procedures.
The TS-653A also features the game-changing container technology for server virtualization. QNAP Container Station exclusively integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux® systems on the TS-653A 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.
* Available by end of 2015

Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage
The TS-653A supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, Linux®/UNIX® networks. Data, logs and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the TS-653A and protected by an integrated antivirus solution. The Windows AD® and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using an existing Windows AD server, LDAP server or built-in LDAP service. The TS-653A supports SAMBA v4 and can act as a Windows domain controller to manage privilege settings.

Well-rounded backup solutions to secure data
QNAP NetBak Replicator supports real-time and scheduled data backup on Windows including Outlook email archiving. Apple Time Machine® is also supported to provide Mac® OS X users with a solution to effortlessly back up data to the TS-653A. The front-panel USB 3.0 port of the TS-653A features a one-touch-copy function for you to instantly back up data from external drives to the TS-653A with just one click, or alternatively to back up data from the TS-653A to external drives. A wide range of third-party backup software such as Acronis® True Image and Symantec® Backup Exec are also supported.

Comprehensive security options
In open network environments, business data may be exposed in a potential hack. The TS-653A provides numerous security options, such as encrypted access, IP blocking, and more. IT administrators can also control the access rights of each user to different folders, preventing unauthorized access to important files. The TS-653A supports AES 256-bit encryption, preventing sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breach even if the hard drives or the entire system were stolen.

Secure access with VPN & Proxy Server
The TS-653A 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-653A can also be used as a VPN Client to connect to other VPN servers or virtual private network through for 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; moreover, via VPN Client on your NAS, you can connect to VPN servers in the United States for accessing regionally-restricted services such as Netflix and Hulu in HD Station. The TS-653A provides you with various VPN options and helps secure your data transmission. The TS-653A also supports setting up a proxy server. The Proxy Server Package can configure the cache size, supported transmission protocols, record web pages you browsed and set up a powerful content control system that limits the use of the Internet. Other features include a work log that remembers users’ habits and preferences and SquidClamav anti-virus for proxy servers to ensure connection safety.

File synchronization across multiple devices and clouds
Qsync utility turns your TS-653A into a safe, large-capacity data center for file synchronization. Any file uploaded to the TS-653A will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops or mobile devices. Qsync is especially useful for frequent travelers to manage files and always have the most up-to-date files on different devices. Qsync now provides more new features— it allows you to synchronize shared folders and create group-shared folders exclusive for your project team; it provides centralized management configuration, helping saving IT administers’ time; it also supports centralized configuration and allows you to remotely erase the Qsync folder on a lost device to avoid data breaches, and even restore it after you have retrieved the device. You can also install the Cloud Drive Sync app from QTS App Center to easily sync files with Google Drive™ and Dropbox® cloud storage.

hi, thanks fro the clip. How does the older TS419Pii go with transcoding..?

Hard to give a real answer without having the unit in front of me but you can look up the NAS unit or it's CPU on this PLEX compatibility chart here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MfYoJkiwSqCXg8cm5-Ac4oOLPRtCkgUxU0jdj3tmMPc/edit#gid=314388488

I want a nas that can transfer files over 100megs/s and transcode to atleast two devices at 1080p and run virtual pcs

That would come down to 3 factors. 1, Do you want to use 4K files and transcode them down to 1080p? 2, Do you want to do all these things simultaneously ? and 3, How many VMs do you want to run? So, If 4K is important (alongside your other requirements) I would recommend the QNAP TS-453A-4G https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TS-453A-4G-4-Bay-RAID-0-1-5-6-4GB-RAM-~52841 If you wanted to run all those services at the same time but still want to save a little money for Hard Drives, I would recommend the QNAP TVS-471-i3-4G https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TVS-471-i3-4G-4-Bay-RAID-0-1-5-6-4GB-RAM-Core-i3-~46826 And finally, if you want to focus on VMs and Transcoding above all else, I would recommend The TVS-871-I5-8G https://www.span.com/product/Qnap-Desktop-NAS-TVS-871-i5-8G-8-Bay-RAID-0-1-5-6-8GB-RAM-Core-i5-~46835 All of those units will give you the data transmission speeds you request as well as providing much needed support in all other areas of Network Attached Storage. If you want to discuss prices and purchasing, fire me off an e-mail to robbie@span.com and I will put you in touch with the best!
