Small, whisper-quiet, and multimedia-ready thanks to M.2 NVMe SSD, HDMI 2.0 output, and two 2.5GbE ports: the new QNAP TBS-464 NASbook is aimed primarily at office users in small application rooms and mobile workers.
What’s inside the QNAP TBS-464 NASbook
The TBS-464 uses four M.2 NVMe SSDs for storage and supports HybridMount, which allows storage from the cloud to be mounted and cached locally. This allows online files to be processed just as quickly as local files.
The multifunctional and nearly silent TBS-464 offers dual HDMI 2.0 4K 60Hz outputs, hardware-accelerated transcoding, and streaming, and includes QNAP’s KoiMeeter for video conferencing and wireless presentations. With two 2.5GbE ports, the TBS-464 NASbook can reach speeds of up to 5Gbps with port trunking.
The QNAP TBS-464 NASbook is equipped with an Intel Celeron N5105/ N5095 quad-core processor (burst up to 2.9 GHz) with Intel AES-NI encryption engine, 8 GB of DDR4 memory, and USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports for faster data transfer. It also comes with the QTS 5 operating system, which offers a new generation of user experience with an optimized user interface.
Ready for meetings
HBS (Hybrid Backup Sync) realizes efficient local/remote/cloud backup jobs. Block-based snapshots facilitate backup and recovery and effectively mitigate the threat of ransomware. In addition, HybridMount provides cloud storage gateways that integrate private and public cloud storage and enable local caching.
The TBS-464 supports media playback on a TV/monitor via dual HDMI 2.0 outputs (up to 4K resolution at 60Hz) and converts 4K video to universal file formats that can be easily played back on multiple devices. It is also ideal for media streaming with Plex.
The TBS-464 series is flexible and versatile. Storage capacity can be expanded by connecting TL as well as TR storage expansion enclosures. Businesses and organizations can also immediately benefit from the TBS-464’s various applications. QmailAgent centralizes multiple email accounts and Qmiix provides an Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) solution. This allows applications and devices to be connected to the QNAP NAS.
In addition, Qfiling automates file organization and Qsirch is used to quickly find needed documents. The functionality of the TBS-464 can also be extended by installing apps from the integrated QTS App Center.
