Centrally manage up to 32 surveillance servers
If your business requires simultaneously managing multiple recording servers, then install QVR Center on the TS-253E. With QVR Center you can manage up to 32 surveillance servers and 10,000+ cameras with an easy-to-use interface.

Faster image identification with integrated Intel® OpenVINO™ AI engine.
With integrated Intel® OpenVINO™ AI computing resources, the TS-253E accelerates AI image recognition performance without impacting other applications or services. QNAP AI Core primarily works with the QuMagie application.

Transform your network with a wallet-friendly 2.5GbE switch
Upgrading your network shouldn’t break the bank, and 2.5GbE connectivity provides immediately noticeable improvements compared to standard 1GbE. QNAP offers 2.5GbE switches that supports Multi-Gigabit NBASE-T™ and allows you to use existing CAT5e cables to connect multiple computers and NAS, assisting organizations in implementing high-speed, secure and scalable network environments without going over budget.

The dual HDMI outputs support up to 4K (3840 x 2160p) @30Hz, providing great benefits for applications like surveillance, video production/editing, industrial design and professional photography that demand on-image resolution and color realism as well as intensive media storage, transfer and display.

Comprehensive backup and disaster recovery solution
The TS-253E supports various apps that cover all your backup needs. Practice safe IT habits by regularly backing up files and device content, allowing them to be easily restored when needed.

PC/Laptop backup
For Windows®, install NetBak Replicator to back up your PC to QNAP NAS. In macOS®, just set up the built-in Time Machine® to secure your data.

Remote backup for NAS
Hybrid Backup Sync makes it easy to back up data from a TS-253E to another QNAP NAS or remote server to fulfill your 3-2-1 backup strategy.

VM backup
Enjoy license-free VMware® and Hyper-V VM backup with source-side incremental backup, global deduplication, and recovery compression.

SaaS backup
Safeguard enterprise cloud data by backing up/syncing files, emails, calendars, and contacts from Google™ Workspace and Microsoft® Office 365® to the NAS.

Cloud backup for NAS
Hybrid Backup Sync supports mainstream cloud storage for NAS data backup. For backup to object cloud storage, VJBOD Cloud is especially useful to reduce bandwidth usage and backup time.

QuDedup technology
Hybrid Backup Sync eliminates redundant data at the source and then backs up the deduplicated data, helping to save time and storage costs while providing efficient multi-version backups.

WordPress backup
Enjoy efficient WordPress backup/restore and site migration by leveraging the user-friendly Multi-Application Recovery Service (MARS), and easily batch backup WordPress files and database to the TS-253E with backup scheduling.

Multi-version snapshots mitigate ransomware threats
The TS-253E supports block-based snapshots that record the state of the system at any time. It helps protect data, which can be restored back to a specific point of time, greatly helping in mitigating the threat of ransomware.

Volume and LUN snapshots
Take snapshots in seconds and revert the entire volume/LUN back to a specific point in time to prevent loss of important data.

Instantly restore snapshots
Snapshot content can be quickly restored to a local NAS, or restored on a folder/file basis to a local/remote NAS or cloud storage. You can also conveniently view and restore snapshots from the client side.

Back up snapshots
Multiply data protection by backing up snapshot files! Replicate volume/LUN snapshots in the TS-253E to a remote NAS (Snapshot Replica) by copying only the changes made. This helps save time & bandwidth, and can be run manually or on a scheduled basis.

All-in-one solution for hosting virtual machines and containers
By running multiple virtual machines and containers on the TS-253E, you can deploy multi-tenant environments and applications to increase management efficiency and save hardware costs. Coupled with the Network & Virtual Switch app that boosts interoperability between virtual machines, containers, QNAP NAS, and other physical devices on the network, you can flexibly allocate physical and virtual network resources to simplify network deployment.

Virtualization Station
Run multiple Windows®, Linux®, UNIX®, Android™, and QuTScloud virtual machines and access them via a web browser or Virtual Network Computing (VNC). Businesses can run virtualized server applications on a single NAS without needing additional physical servers.

Container Station
Experience Docker®, LXD, and Kata Containers lightweight virtualization technologies, download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry®, import/export containers, and create abundant microservices.

Linux Station
Run Linux® applications (including apps from the Software Center) directly on the NAS and remotely access the Linux® desktop from a web browser. The open-source Linux® platform is also ideal for Internet of Things development.

Comprehensive security and privilege settings
The TS-253E is loaded with flexible privilege settings and security measures. Besides IP blocking, 2-step verification, HTTPS connection, there are more apps that help ensure optimal NAS protection against threats like malware and hackers.

myQNAPcloud secures remote access
myQNAPcloud allows convenient connection to the TS-253E through the Internet without any complex DDNS settings. To ensure your remote access service is secure, myQNAPcloud strengthens keys on SSL Certificates to 2048-bits.

Simplified privilege settings
The TS-253E supports comprehensive access right settings for shared folders, Azure Active Directory Domain Services (Azure AD DS), LDAP, and Windows ACL to help IT staff efficiently manage user accounts and access rights for multiple NAS systems.

QuFirewall protection
Supports IPv6, firewall access lists, and GeoIP filtering to restrict access based on geographical locations for higher NAS network security.

Superior security with QVPN
A virtual private network (VPN) allows secure access to network resources and services across public networks. QVPN supports creating a VPN client, using the TS-253E as a VPN server, and WireGuard® VPN service with an easy-to-use interface for setting up a secure connection.
