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?
In response to the coming era of Internet of Things (IoT), the TS-453A innovatively supports the open-source Linux® platform as a gateway for IoT solutions to other smart devices. The TS-453A allows users to directly utilize various feature-rich Linux apps, enjoying a private cloud combining storage and IoT applications, and professional developers can develop and run IoT applications directly on the TS-453A. The secure, reliable TS-453A is packed with business-critical features such as Volume/LUN Snapshot – allowing files/folders to revert to a previous state in case of any corruption or file-loss. The TS-453A is powered by the latest quad-core Intel® Celeron® processor which allows users to enjoy 4K (H.264) video playback and 1080p/4K video real-time transcoding directly from the TS-453A to an HD/4K display.
