Manufacturer Part Code: TS-1655-8G
Order Code: NSQNA-TS1655-8G
Category: All NAS Devices
QNAP TS-1655 - NAS server - 16 bays - SATA 6Gb/s - RAID 0 1 5 6 10 50 JBOD 60 - RAM 8 GB - 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet - iSCSI support
Balance performance and cost with hybrid storage. Designed for diversified business IT environments, the high-capacity TS-1655 has twelve 3.5-inch SATA drive bays (for HDDs) and four 2.5-inch SATA drive bays (for SSDs) with 2.5GbE high-speed connectivity. Fueled by an immense 8-core Intel Processor, the TS-1655 presents a secure, scalable, and complete business-ready storage solution for cross-team file sharing, collaboration, backup & disaster recovery, virtualization, and intensive data transmission. The TS-1655 will be available and supported by QNAP for an extended period (up to 2027), ideal for businesses requiring matching NAS models deployed in multiple locations.
Eight cores up to 2.8 GHz, Intel® QuickAssist Technology, and up to 128 GB memory
The TS-1655 adopts the Intel® Atom® C5125 8-core processor (Burst up to 2.8 GHz) that supports Intel® QuickAssist Technology (QAT), offloading computationally-intensive compression and improving IPsec/SSL cryptography performance. The TS-1655 comes with four UDIMM DDR4 slots (8 GB preinstalled) that can be upgraded to 128 GB for higher workloads. Error-Correcting Code memory is also supported to deliver server-grade performance and reliability for rugged enterprise IT environments as a cost-efficient NAS solution.
Affordable, faster 2.5GbE meets today's high-bandwidth demands
Featuring two native 2.5GbE RJ45 LAN ports (backwards compatible with 1G/100M), the TS-1655 allows you to upgrade network speeds from 1 Gigabit to 2.5 Gigabit using existing CAT5e cables. Port Trunking and failover support further satisfies bandwidth and reliability demanding applications including virtualization, large file transfers, high-speed backup/restoration, and real-time applications. QNAP also offers numerous managed/unmanaged 2.5GbE/10GbE switches, assisting organizations in implementing high-speed, secure, and scalable network environments without going over budget.
M.2 slots for SSD caching and accelerated AI-powered image recognition
The TS-1655 is equipped with two M.2 PCIe Gen 3 slots that allow for installing NVMe PCIe Gen 3 SSDs with 2280 form factors or Edge TPU (sold separately) to boost NAS performance.
Configure SSD caching with M.2 SSDs to obtain optimal I/O and reduced latency without occupying any 3.5-inch drive bays.
Qtier™ technology empowers the TS-1655 with auto tiering to continuously optimize storage efficiency across all installed storage devices.
Faster image recognition with Edge TPU
Coral M.2 Accelerator with Edge TPU provides an affordable solution to leverage AI acceleration for faster image recognition in your NAS applications.
5/10/25GbE network card
Enable lightning-fast throughput for bandwidth-demanding tasks (virtualization, mass data transmission, fast backup/restore.)
Adds M.2 SSD or 2.5GbE/10GbE connectivity to the NAS for optimized performance and bandwidth.
SAS / SATA storage expansion cards
Designed for connecting the NAS to SAS 12Gb/s or SATA 6Gb/s expansion units for petabyte-scale storage capacity.
Direct 2.5GbE connectivity for up to 14 PC/workstations
Your team needs a high-speed environment and productivity boost, and the TS-1655 delivers with two 2.5GbE ports. By installing three 4-port PCIe network cards (QXG-2G4T-I225) the TS-1655 can directly connect to up to 14 PC/workstations - no switch required – for faster large file transfer/backup, video editing, and much more.
Comprehensive backup and disaster recovery solution
The TS-1655 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.
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-1655 to another QNAP NAS or remote server to fulfill your 3-2-1 backup strategy.
Enjoy license-free VMware® and Hyper-V VM backup with source-side incremental backup, global deduplication, and recovery compression.
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.
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.
Multi-version snapshots mitigate ransomware threats
The TS-1655 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-1655 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-1655, you can deploy multi-tenant environmen
