Built for office and home environments, the TS-453Be 4-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP features a simply physical design with a PCIe 2.0 x2 slot that can be fitted with a QNAP QM2 expansion card for M.2 SSD caching/10GbE connectivity and support for Qtier auto-tiering technology, or a compatible wireless card to turn this NAS into a wireless access point. It also supports dual-channel 4K H.264/H.265 processing to provide a smooth media viewing experience on connected devices. In addition, a wide range of productivity tools are available for use on the TS-453Be to improve work efficiency for media creators or creative professionals, while also enriching their multimedia experience.
Network connectivity is achieved using two Gigabit Ethernet ports. When both ports are used simultaneously, read speeds and write speeds can reach 225 MB/s. Encrypted transfers also deliver read and write speeds of up to 225 MB/s, and when equipped with a 10GbE card, sequential throughputs with dual ports can drive read speeds up to 659 MB/s and write speeds up to 648 MB/s.
This 4-bay enclosure natively supports 3.5" SATA III hard drives, and 2.5" hard drives and SSDs are also supported using included 2.5" drive flat head screws. Using the five 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other devices, including a UX-800P or UX-500P expansion enclosure, allowing you to easily transfer large media files and expand NAS storage. Additionally, the TS-453Be is validated with AES-NI and FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, helping to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.
QNAP has also engineered this NAS to also support RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, each which offers data redundancy, performance, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD and single disk modes are also available. Included is a 90W AC adapter that runs using 100-240 VAC, a power cord, twelve flat head screws for 2.5" drives, and two Ethernet cables. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.
