Intel® Celeron® J3455 quad-core 1.5GHz CPU with AES-NI Encryption Powered by the latest 14 nm Intel® Celeron® J3455 quad-core 1.5GHz processor (burst up to 2.3 GHz), up to 8GB DDR3L RAM, four Gigabit LAN ports, and SATA 6Gb/s, the TS-853BU-RP runs tasks smoothly and quickly with up to 369 MB/s read/ write speeds. The TS-853BU-RP features Intel® AES-NI accelerated encryption to drive transfer speeds of up to 336 MB/s with AES 256-bit encryption for both full NAS volumes and shared folders, boosting system performance while ensuring the confidentiality of sensitive business data stored in the NAS.

SSD cache acceleration The TS-853BU-RP supports SSD caching. Users can install an SSD in drive bay 1 and bay 2 to boost IOPS performance of storage volumes. It is perfect for improving the overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs. Coupled with Qtier™ auto-tiering technology (which now supports “On Demand Allocation Priority”), users can customise storage allocation to best suit their system environment and application demands.

QM2 expansion card redefines NAS function QNAP's QM2 is a PCIe expansion card that features dual M.2 SSD slots and 10GbE connectivity* (individual cards may vary in functionality). This allows users to easily set up SSD caching or to enable Qtier auto-tiering technology to optimise NAS performance. 10GbE-compatible models can also future proof the TS-853BU-RP for use with 10GbE networks. Equipped with a dedicated cooling module, the QM2 can maintain its high performance even when tasked with the highest workloads.

QTS – The most intelligent and intuitive NAS operating system With modularised multiple applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more. New intelligent agent services have also been added to simplify system operations and management. The user-friendly QTS features an intelligent desktop that allows you to find desired functions quickly, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently with greater working efficiency, and provides a built-in App Center with install-on-demand apps to extend NAS functionality. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring optimised cloud experiences and incorporates advanced features.

Datastore for virtualised environments The TS-853BU-RP is an iSCSI/ IP-SAN storage that supports VMware® and Citrix®, and is compatible with Microsoft® Hyper-V® and Windows Server 2012® R2, fulfilling the need for flexible deployment and management in virtualisation environments. The TS-853BU-RP 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 virtualisation applications.

Qfiling automates your file organisation Qfiling helps automate file organisation for sorting files spread through multiple folders, helping to reduce the time needed for finding important files. Users can categorise files and determine filing conditions; and schedule filing tasks to be carried out periodically. The “Recipe” feature allows users to save frequently-used filing conditions as an “exclusive recipe”, then the next Qfiling task can be run with just one click using the recipe.

4K HDMI output for an excellent audiovisual experience Featuring advanced 9th-generation Intel® HD Graphics, the TS-853BU-RP supports dual-channel 4K H.264/H.265 hardware decoding and real-time transcoding, allowing you to convert videos to universal file formats that can be smoothly played on multiple devices*. QNAP Linux Station is integrated with Ubuntu® OS, allowing you to download and install versatile multimedia apps from Ubuntu Software Center, such as Plex Media Server, KMPlayer, LibreOffice and VLC. QNAP's HD Station also allows you to directly enjoy multimedia using HD Player or third-party players such as Plex Home Theater. By connecting the TS-853BU-RP to a HDTV or A/V receiver you can enjoy watching videos with up to 4K resolution.

*The TS-853BU-RP’s hardware provides H.264 /H.265 hardware decoding, encoding and transcoding capabilities. However, playback quality may vary due to factors including playback software, file formats, system usage, and available bandwidth.

IFTTT Agent automates your workflow IFTTT (If This Then That) is currently one of the most popular web automation services, and with QNAP IFTTT Agent you can create a near-unlimited number of NAS-related applets on the IFTTT website for greater automation and to boost your productivity. For example, if you set a trigger as “Any new photo (using Android Photos service)” and the action as "Download the URL to QNAP NAS (using QNAP service)," then all the photos taken using your Android device will be automatically downloaded to TS-853BU-RP. With IFTTT Agent, you can make your TS-853BU-RP smarter than ever.
