Protect data with snapshots

Snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. If a file is accidentally deleted or modified, you can use snapshots to quickly restore the file to its previously-recorded state. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record the changed data. Not only does this save storage space but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data. The TS-253Be supports up to 1,024 snapshots per NAS and up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN.

Upgrade your IT environment with QNAP's fast and affordable 10GbE Switch!

QNAP 10GbE/NBASE-T™ unmanaged switches allow you to instantly upgrade your network environment at a cost-effective price. With a 10GbE network you can enjoy blazing-fast transfer speeds, empower bandwidth-demanding tasks like virtualization, and enable simultaneous real-time access to large NAS-based files using multiple workstations (ideal for video editing and multimedia). QNAP also provide a 10GbE PCIe network expansion card for the TS-253Be and Windows®/Linux® PCs to take advantage of high-speed LAN environments.

Real-time video transcoding

Featuring advanced 9th-generation Intel® HD Graphics, the TS-253Be 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*. Therefore, you can easily share movies and videos stored on your NAS with family and friends for their enjoyment on a range of devices. The QNAP RM-IR004 remote control (sold separately) can be configured using QButton to customize the actions of individual buttons, providing a more convenient NAS experience.

*The TS-253Be’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.

Multiple ways to enjoy videos

QNAP provides a wide range of multimedia applications for you to easily enjoy photos, music, and videos.

  • QVHelper allows users to stream media files or music playlists from a QNAP NAS to VLC player.

  • Qmedia allows music, photos and videos to be effortlessly streamed to Android TVs or set-top boxes.
