Note: 8GB to 16GB of memory recommended for virtualization.

The TS-453A’s QTS-Linux dual systems are based upon QNAP’s advanced virtualization technologies. The revolutionary architecture of the TS-453A enables users not only to download rich apps from QTS App Center but also to develop or utilize IoT packages for Linux® and display them using HDMI output. With the TS-453A, you can develop and install various IoT packages on demand and centrally store the data on the TS-453A, benefiting from a secure private storage and development solution. Simply plug in a keyboard, mouse and HDMI monitor to the TS-453A, and use the Linux Station as if you were using a PC*. You can also operate the Linux Station as a remote desktop via web browser for instant management**.

If your shopping for the best price remember…

It does not make sense to save a few dollars on the components of your NAS when you can get results faster with smikbox NAS solutions, where we:

  • Select components that work best together for the NAS model chosen
  • Assemble and configure (just like the pre-delivery service for a car)
  • Technical assistance, advise and hand holding.

If your a busy person or just into instant gratification then go for a smikBox NAS solution.

Seriously you wont regret it, PLUS there is a money back guarantee on services anyway, so where is the downside in that?
