    Dual-core NAS featuring USB QuickAccess Port for Direct Access to Files
    Marketing Information

    The TS-251A provides the innovative USB 3.0 QuickAccess port that allows you to quickly complete the first-time NAS installation and to then directly access files and data stored on the NAS. It also supports two additional transmission modes: Ethernet NAS mode and iSCSI SAN block-based mode. Combining USB QuickAccess, NAS and iSCSI-SAN into one box, the TS-251A is a powerful but easy-to-use storage solution ideal for backup, synchronization, remote access, and entertainment. It greatly helps to boost productivity and can meet the demands of photographers and audiovisual enthusiasts for direct, quick access to files. The TS-251A is powered by an upgradable and high-performance 14nm Intel® Celeron® N3060 dual-core 1.6GHz processor, and supports 4K video playback and transcoding.

    • Excellent system performance, ideal for centralized management, file sharing and backup
    • USB QuickAccess port for accessing files without needing a network connection
    • Supports 4K hardware decoding and transcodes 4K H.264 videos on-the-fly or offline
    • Enjoy the best audio-visual experience with HDMI output, multi-channel surround sound and the free remote control
    • Build a personal karaoke system with OceanKTV
    • Linux Station supports Ubuntu® with direct output via HDMI
    • A hybrid approach to virtualization: Virtualization Station & Container Station
    • Supports Virtual JBOD (VJBOD) to maximize the storage utilization of multiple QNAP NAS units
    14nm Intel® Celeron® N3060 dual-core CPU and hardware-accelerated encryption engine

    The TS-251A is powered by an advanced 14nm Intel® Celeron® dual-core 1.6GHz processor that features low TDP (only 6 watts) and can automatically burst up to 2.48GHz. Coupled with dual-channel 2/4GB DDR3L-1600 dual-channel RAM (upgradable to 8GB), dual Gigabit LAN ports, and SATA 6Gb/s, the TS-251A can deliver up to 211.88 MB/s throughput for optimizing mission-critical tasks while still being energy efficient. The TS-251A also features Intel® AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption to deliver up to 209.13 MB/s throughput with AES 256-bit throughput with AES-NI encryption for both full NAS volume and shared folders, boosting system performance & security while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the NAS.

    Direct access to files with the USB QuickAccess port

    The TS-251A features an innovative USB 3.0 QuickAccess port that allows you to complete the first-time installation and setup of your TS-251A without requiring network connectivity. The files and data stored on the TS-251A can also be directly accessed by using Qfinder Pro and a USB 3.0 A-Male to Micro B-Male cable or a USB 2.0 Micro B cable. Furthermore, you can assign access rights to users for different folders to prevent unauthorized access to important files.

    USB QuickAccess/NAS/iSCSI SAN triple solution

    The TS-251A innovatively re-defines what NAS can do by providing a USB 3.0 QuickAccess/NAS/iSCSI SAN triple solution. It discards the restriction of conventional DAS that only allows connecting to one device, and breaks the cost barrier for a high-speed Ethernet solution. The TS-251A's three data transmission modes not only work independently, but they also can simultaneously run with no bandwidth interference, allowing you to multi-task with utmost productivity.
