Product Description

QNAP TS-253D-4G 8TB (2 x 4TB) WD Red 2-Bay Desktop NAS, 4GB RAM

Quad-core 2.5GbE NAS for professionals, supporting PCIe expansion for 10 Gbps or M.2 SSDs to accelerate applications

The new-gen Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) trend has driven higher bandwidth demands for wired and wireless network connections. By integrating Intel Celeron J4125 quad-core 2.0 GHz processor and 2.5GbE connectivity, the TS-253D not only provides modern businesses an excellent NAS solution to upgrade to 2.5GbE environments for productive daily backup/restore tasks, but also provides gamers with ample storage for their vast game collections. Up to 5 Gbps transfer speeds can be made by setting port trunking with the two built-in 2.5GbE ports. The TS-253D also supports PCIe expansion, multi-cloud backup, cloud storage gateways, 4K HDMI output and real-time transcoding, alongside expandable storage capacity and feature-rich apps to perform as a cost-efficient, reliable 2.5GbE NAS.

Quad-core 2.0 GHz (burst up to 2.7 GHz) with 4GB memory

The TS-253D is powered by an Intel Celeron J4125 quad-core 2.0 GHz processor (bursts up to 2.7 GHz), features up to 8 GB DDR4 memory, and supports SATA 6 Gb/s drives. The support of Intel AES-NI encryption engine boosts encryption performance while also maintaining the security of your NAS data. You can flexibly install SSDs for cache acceleration to maximize network and storage performance for data-intensive applications.

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. The QNAP RM-IR004 remote control (sold separately) can be configured using QButton to customize individual button actions, providing a more user-friendly NAS experience.

Upgrade your NAS to 2.5GbE networks

Virtualization

Satisfies bandwidth-demanding applications such as virtual machines and containers.

Video Streaming

Boosts transfer speeds to improve smooth 4K video streaming and display.

Gaming Storage

Mount an iSCSI LUN from the TS-253D to your computer to store your vast game collections.

Secured data centre with versatile multimedia features

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).

Abundant I/O capability with PCIe expansion

The TS-253D features one PCIe 2.0 slot that allows for various expansion cards for expanding application potential.

PCIe expansion allows for a Multi-Gig 10GbE or 5GbE network card, or a QM2 card to add M.2 NVMe or SATA SSDs for caching.

A secure data centre for backing up device data with snapshot protection

Use the license-free QNAP NetBak Replicator utility to back up and restore files from Windows computers. Apple's Time Machine is supported for backing up Mac computers.

Snapshots are essential for NAS data protection, and their block-level feature makes it a dependable data protection method in the face of growing ransomware threats. The TS-253D supports up to 256 snapshots per volume/LUN, and up to 1,024 snapshots per NAS.

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.
