QNAP has this week unveiled its new QNAP SSD NASbook which takes the form of the very first M.2 SSD-based NAS and is powered by a quad-core Intel Celeron N3150 1.60 GHz processor offering a burst up to 2.08 GHz.
The onboard processor is supported by up to 8GB of dual-channel 4GB/8GB DDR3L1600 SODIMM RAM and the NAS features 2 x Gigabit Ethernet ports and 3 x Gigabit switch ports that support network switch and private network modes. QNAP explains more :
The TBS-453A is also geared for rich multimedia applications. Users can connect it to a TV or A/V receiver to enjoy 4K multimedia content. With its two 3.5 mm microphone jacks, a Line out port, a built-in speaker, and the OceanKTV app, the TBS-453A can also be transformed into an affordable karaoke machine or for use with diverse audio applications.
The TBS-453A comes with various applications to meet business needs and to improve productivity. By connecting a keyboard, mouse and HDMI display, Linux Station allows the NAS to be used as a Linux workstation to empower open-source software development and to allow users to run Linux apps.
Qsirch lets users find NAS data amazingly quickly with its powerful near real-time full-text search engine. QTS Storage Manager provides a web-based snapshot tool for efficient data recovery, allowing up to 1,024 snapshots for volumes and LUNs in a NAS. The TBS-453A further offers a hybrid approach to virtualization applications. Virtualization Station allows users to run multiple Windows, Linux, UNIX and Android based virtual machines on the NAS with a HDMI monitor and USB keyboard/mouse support (via QvPC Technology), and Container Station integrates both LXC and Docker virtualization technologies.
