Powered by a 14nm Celeron J3455 quad-core 1.5GHz processor (burst up to 2.3 GHz), up to 8GB dual-channel DDR3L RAM, SATA 6Gb/s, and with four Gigabit LAN ports, the TS-x53BU series delivers up to 415MB/s read speed and 416 MB/s read with Intel Corp.' AES-NI 256-bit encryption. Additionally, it provides a redundant power supply to ensure uptime for mission-critical applications.

QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE LAN adapter

The TS-x53BU comes with a PCIe slot that allows installing a company's QM2 M.2 SSD/10GbE LAN adapter to boost SSD caching performance and to provide 10GbE connectivity (10GbE connectivity varies by model). Coupled with Qtier auto-tiering technology (which now supports 'On Demand Allocation Priority'), the TS-x53BU helps users make the best use of their hardware resources and storage allocation. Users can also consider installing a 10GbE/Gigabit adapter or a USB 3.1 10Gb/s adapter for diverse storage applications.

"The TS-x53BU secures data with a complete backup solution while providing high performance and expandability. The PCIe slot satisfies a variety of business demands with functional expansion options including SSD caching or 10GbE connectivity," said Dan Lin, product manager, Qnap.
