QNAP TS-264-8G 2 Bay Desktop NAS
Powered by an Intel® Celeron® N5105/N5095, quad-core processor (burst up to 2.9GHz), the TS-264 features two 2.5GbE RJ45 ports and Port Trunking for up to 5Gbps combined bandwidth. With M.2 PCIe Gen3 and PCIe Gen 3 slots, the TS-264 provides flexibility in extending NAS functionality, allowing you to install a QM2 card for M.2 SSD caching, or Edge TPU for AI image recognition and various 10GbE/5GbE network cards. The TS-264 comes with 8 GB RAM for running light VMs and Containers, and supports multi-cloud backup, cloud storage gateways, 4K HDMI output and real-time transcoding, alongside expandable storage capacity and feature-rich apps to perform as a cost-efficient, reliable 2.5GbE NAS.
Up to 5 Gbps transfer speeds can be achieved by setting port trunking with the two built-in 2.5GbE (2.5G/1G/100M) ports.
M.2 SSD caching
Dual M.2 PCIe Gen 3 slots enable NVMe SSD caching or SSD storage pools for improved performance, or Edge TPU for AI image recognition.
Install a PCIe Gen3 x2 card to expand the core functionality of the TS-264, including a Multi-Gig 10GbE/5GbE/2.5GbE network card, a QM2 card, or a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) card.
License-free virtualized environment
Host multiple containerized apps to run a wide range of applications and services.
Qtier™ auto-tiering technology and SSD caching enable constant storage optimization.
4K H.264 hardware decoding and real-time transcoding for smooth big screen multimedia experience.
Quad-core high performance and up to 8 GB RAM
The TS-264 is powered by an Intel Celeron N5105 / N5095 quad-core processor and supports up to 8 GB DDR4 memory, two 2.5GbE ports and SATA 6 Gb/s drives. The integrated Intel® AES-NI encryption engine also helps protect confidential data without impacting system performance.
Accelerate AI–powered image recognition and caching with TPU and PCIe expansion
The TS-264 has two M.2 PCIe Gen3 slots, enabling SSD caching or SSD storage pools for improved performance, or Edge TPU for AI image recognition.
Install M.2 NVMe SSDs for cache acceleration or efficient tiered storage
The TS-264 supports SSD caching and features two M.2 slots that support M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs
with 2280 form factors (sold separately) for boosting overall NAS performance. Qtier™ technology can also be used to empower the TS-264 with auto tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across all installed storage devices.
Accelerate AI–powered image recognition with TPU
By leveraging a Google Edge TPU to QNAP AI Core (the AI-powered engine for image recognition), the TS-264 can perform high-speed face and object recognition. Google Edge TPU enables QuMagie to quickly process thousands of photos with high-speed AI Image recognition and classification, and QVR Face to analyze real-time video for instant facial recognition.
SSD caching and auto-tiering enable 24/7 optimized storage efficiency
While SSD prices continue to fall, and SSD capacity and performance continue to increase, organizations can easily take advantage of SSD strengths. The TS-264 supports numerous SSD-aware features that significantly maximize NAS performance with high cost-effectiveness.
You can add additional SSD over-provisioning (1% ~60%) to avoid write amplification and improve SSD random write speeds and endurance. You can potentially attain enterprise-grade SSD performance levels from affordable consumer SSDs!
SSD cache acceleration
Enables SSD caching for increasing IOPS performance and reducing latency for storage volume. This feature is perfect for IOPS-demanding applications including databases and virtualization. The TS-264 also supports write-only cache to boost write-intensive applications.
Qtier for auto-tiering
Qtier technology drives auto-tiered storage with continuous data optimization across high-performance SSDs and high-capacity HDDs based on access frequency. I/O-Aware Qtier can reserve a cache-like space in the SSD tiered to handle burst I/O in real time.
Streamline large file transfers and video editing with 2.5GbE
The TS-264 comes with two 2.5GbE RJ45 (2.5G/1G/100M) LAN ports that allow you to use existing CAT5e cables to upgrade network speeds from 1 Gigabit to 2.5 Gigabit. The dual 2.5GbE ports also support Port Trunking for up to 5 Gbps transmission speeds, improving the efficiency of bandwidth-hungry business applications such as large file transfers, fast backup/restore, and multimedia transfer & editing.
