Overview

QNAP TS-251B-2G 2 Bay NAS (Network-Attached Storage) Enclosure

TS-251B-2G

The TS-251B combines secure data storage and multimedia entertainment into one device. Featuring a PCIe slot, the TS-251B is QNAP’s first home/SOHO NAS that allows you to flexibly extend its functionality and potential applications. You can install a QNAP QM2 card to provide M.2 SSD caching/10GbE connectivity and use with Qtier auto-tiering storage to enhance overall system performance; or install a wireless network card (such as the QNAP QWA-AC2600) to turn the TS-251B into a wireless access point and to wirelessly stream your multimedia throughout your home. The TS-251B supports dual-channel H.264 hardware decoding and transcoding, allowing you to enjoy watching NAS media files smoothly across various devices.

QNAP TS-251B Features

  • The PCIe port supports installing a 10GbE network card, a QM2 dual-port M.2 SSD/10GbE card, a USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) card, or a wireless network card.
  • 4K media playback and online transcoding; cross-device multimedia viewing via HDMI output or streaming applications.
  • Snapshots fully record the system status and data. If files are accidentally deleted or modified, you can quickly restore the previously-recorded data.
  • Hybrid Backup Sync consolidates backup and sync tasks into a single app, providing multiple layers of data protection.
  • Remotely access the apps and files on your TS-251B via myQNAPcloud and easily manage and share files.
  • Supports containerized applications and hosting virtual machines with various operating systems.

Intel® Celeron® J3355 dual-core processor and AES-NI hardware encryption

Powered by a 14nm Intel® Celeron® J3355 dual-core 2.0GHz processor (burst up to 2.5 GHz), 2GB/4GB DDR3L RAM (up to 8GB), a single Gigabit LAN port, and supporting SATA 6Gb/s hard drives, the TS-251B provides dependable performance of up to 672 MB/s read/write speeds. The TS-251B features Intel® AES-NI hardware-accelerated encryption for both full NAS volumes and shared folders, boosting system performance while ensuring the security of sensitive data stored in the TS-251B.

Automate everyday tasks with IFTTT Agent

QNAP IFTTT Agent integrates the popular web automation service IFTTT (If This Then That), allowing you to create a near-unlimited number of automated workflows. Simply connect your IFTTT account with your TS-251B and set triggers and actions. For example, if you set a trigger as “Any new photo on the phone” and the action as "Upload the photo to QNAP NAS," then all the photos taken using your phone will be automatically uploaded to TS-251B.

Extend NAS functionality with the PCIe slot

With a PCIe expansion slot, the TS-251B provides flexibility in extending NAS functionality and potential applications. Install a QNAP QM2 card to provide M.2 SSD caching/10GbE connectivity and use with Qtier tiered storage for optimal system performance; use the TS-251B as a wireless access point by installing a compatible wireless network card (such as the QNAP QWA-AC2600) to create a wireless media streaming environment; or boost the USB connectivity of the TS-251B by installing a USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) card.

Real-time 4K video transcoding

Featuring advanced Intel® HD Graphics, the TS-251B supports dual-channel 4K H.264 hardware decoding and real-time transcoding, allowing you to convert videos to universal file formats that can be smoothly played across various devices*. You can also watch high-quality 4K@30FPS media files on a HDTV using the HDMI output or use with Plex® Media Server to stream media files to mobiles devices and media streaming devices (including DLNA®, Roku®, Apple TV®, Amazon Fire TV® and Chromecast™). The QNAP RM-IR004 remote control (sold separately) can be configured using QButton to customize the actions of individual buttons, providing a more convenient NAS experience.

Protect important data with snapshots

Snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. If files are accidentally deleted or modified or the system is afflicted by ransomware, you can use snapshots to quickly restore files to a previously-recorded state. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record the changed data. Not only does this save storage space but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data. The TS-251B supports up to 1,024 snapshots per NAS and up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN.

Multi-point file backup, access and sync

The TS-251B centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® devices. Coupled with Qsync (a utility that turns a QNAP NAS into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization) any file uploaded to the TS-251B will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. Hybrid Backup Sync can help you easily backup or synchronize data on the TS-251B to other QNAP NAS, remote servers, or cloud storage for easy disaster recovery.

Consolidated notifications and extra NAS security

QTS 4.3.5 provides various mechanisms to ensure the data saved on your TS-251B is carefully safeguarded, including the brand-new Notification Center that consolidates system logs and notifications into a single app and the Security Counselor that checks for weaknesses and offers helpful security recommendations.
