QNAP has launched a new 4-bay network attached storage system this month in the form of the QNAP TS-451D2 NAS. two versions are available offering TS-451D2-2G: 4 drive bays, 2 GB DDR4 memory (supports up to 8 GB dual-channel) or TS-451D2-4G: 4 drive bays, 4 GB DDR4 memory (supports up to 8 GB dual-channel). The NAS is powered by an Intel Celeron J4025 dual-core 2.0 GHz processor (burst up to 2.9 GHz), with hot-swappable 3.5-inch SATA 6 Gbpss drive bays and connectivity is provided in the form of 2x Gigabit RJ45 ports, 1x HDMI 2.0 4K 60Hz output; 4x USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) Type-A ports.
“The 4-bay TS-451D2 provides high storage potential for home and small business users to store, share, and back up files. Business users can leverage its dual-core Intel processor to enable seamless multi-user on-premises/remote access to work files, while home users can enjoy a high-quality multimedia experience with both streaming and direct 4K HDMI 2.0 output. Cloud Storage Gateways allow you to leverage your existing cloud storage to deploy a hybrid-cloud solution, while a built-in App Center provides a wide range of applications to add additional functionality to the TS-451D2.”
“HBS provides comprehensive backup and data recovery; QuDedup deduplicates data at the source to reduce storage usage, bandwidth usage, and backup time. Cloud storage gateways leverage cloud services to realize hybrid cloud structure and ensure low-latency access to clouds. Snapshots fully record the system status and data. If files are accidentally deleted or modified, you can quickly restore previously-recorded data.”
