Configure this product

The 4-bay TS-453mini, featuring the easy-to-use QTS operating system, is a powerful, reliable and secure vertical NAS that suits non-spacious office environments. Featuring a stylish glossy look, a quiet exhaust for heat dissipation and LED indicators with adjustable brightness controls, the elegant TS-453mini is packed full of cutting-edge features & apps to provide day-to-day file storage, backup, sharing, and entertainment needs. The TS-453mini delivers high performance with persistent throughput, providing a comprehensive storage solution for small-sized organizations and offices to build a reliable private cloud.

Innovative design and easy system upgrade
The glossy TS-453mini features a stylish vertical design that takes up 29% less desktop space*, making it suitable for offices or even study rooms at home. Compared with the traditional NAS cooling fan, the TS-453mini houses a quiet internal compact exhaust that helps dissipate heat, delivers less noise and reduces dust. With the tool-less design, you can easily remove the TS-453mini’s magnetic top cover to add or replace hot-swappable 3.5” hard drives**. Upgrading the RAM of a NAS has also never been easier with a conveniently accessible cover at the bottom. This streamlined architecture design helps you maintain the TS-453mini with minimal effort.

Smart LED
The aesthetically-designed skyline LED indicator will flash a blue light to remind you the system is in S3 sleep mode. Based on the surrounding environment, you can adjust the brightness of all system indicators (from a scale from 0 to 100, in 5-step increments) and also schedule the system to automatically dim the LEDs at certain times when needed.

Quad-core CPU delivering high performance
Powered by a quad-core Intel® Celeron® 2.0GHz processor with 2GB energy-efficient DDR3L RAM (upgradable to 8GB), coupled with the support of SATA 6Gb/s, 2 Gigabit LAN ports and HDMI output, the TS-453mini is a powerful NAS that delivers up to 220 MB/s read & write speeds. The TS-453mini can also automatically increase the processor’s clock rate from 2.0GHz to 2.42GHz when needed for CPU-intensive tasks. The TS-453mini’s fast encryption and decryption performance provides transfer speeds of up to 220 MB/s with AES 256-bit volume encryption, boosting system performance & security while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the TS-453mini.

QTS – Simple and efficient
Thanks to the intuitive user interface of QTS, system operations of the TS-453mini are smooth and handy. Its 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 operating efficiency.

Qsirch – A smarter, faster way to search
Quickly and easily find documents, photos, videos, and music with Qsirch, QNAP’s new built-in NAS search application lets you find what you need by real-time, natural search. Simply type in as much as you know about what you are trying to find, including bits of the file name or even words/phrases in the document, and Qsirch will display a list of matches, complete with thumbnails, as you type. Qsirch even remembers your search history so you can quickly navigate to files you’ve previously searched for. Qsirch is a huge productivity boost – it greatly reduces the amount of time spent looking for files on the NAS so you can focus on other tasks.

SSD cache acceleration
The TS-453mini supports SSD caching which can greatly boost IOPS performance of storage volumes. It is perfect for improving overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications such as virtualization.

Run additional operating systems on the TS-453mini
With the support for Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x), the TS-453mini can operate the Virtualization Station, transforming the TS-453mini into a 2-in-a-box NAS that can function as an all-in-one NAS and a virtualization platform that supports multiple operating systems, fast VM creation, VM import/export, snapshot, and enables desktop operations on web browsers. With the easy-to-use interface, you can centrally manage all of the VMs created on the TS-453mini with minimal effort. You can also download VMs on demand from online VM markets and import them to the TS-453mini without any complex procedures.

Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage
The TS-453mini 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-453mini 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-453mini 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-453mini. The USB 3.0 port on the front panel of the TS-453mini features a one-touch-copy function for you to instantly back up data from external drives to the TS-453mini with just one click, or alternatively to back up data from the TS-453mini to external drives. A wide range of third-party backup software such as Acronis® True Image and Symantec® Backup Exec are also supported.

Disaster recovery solutions brings peace of mind
The TS-453mini offers various data recovery options. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real time or scheduled data backup to a remote Turbo NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files to a remote folder from a local folder with better backup efficiency and reduced backup time. The TS-453mini also supports rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on 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® and Google Cloud Storage.

Comprehensive security options
In open network environments, business data may be exposed in a potential hack. The TS-453mini 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-453mini is validated with military-level FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, preventing sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breach even if the hard drives or the entire system were stolen.

Real-time & offline HD video transcoding
The TS-453mini delivers superior real-time Full HD video transcoding to convert videos to formats that can be smoothly played on PCs, mobile devices and Smart TVs. It allows for up to 5 devices to simultaneously view different videos stored on the TS-453mini with on-the-fly hardware accelerated transcoding. The TS-453mini allows you to enjoy instant videos on multiple devices – even those that lack computing power or have limited file format support – without the need for complicated and time-consuming file conversion.

With the benefit of offline transcoding, if you can only connect to an Internet connection with limited/restricted bandwidth, you can still enjoy smooth videos by selecting a pre-rendered lower resolution to play the videos via File Station, Video Station, or the Qfile mobile app without affecting the TS-453mini’s system performance running other applications. The TS-453mini also allows you to set a dedicated folder for automatic video transcoding.

File synchronization across multiple devices
The Qsync utility turns your TS-453mini into a safe data center for file synchronization with a large storage capacity. Any file uploaded to the TS-453mini 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 updated files on different devices. Qsync provides multiple ways of file synchronization and group file sharing, greatly enhancing the flexibility of collaboration.
