QNAP Completes Its 3-bay NAS Lineup: Introducing the TS-351 Home NAS Featuring Dual NVMe M.2 SSD Slots, Multimedia Streaming, and Efficient Tiered Storage

Taipei, Taiwan, October 16, 2018 – Following the releases of the TS-328 (powered by a Realtek CPU) and the TS-332X (powered by an AnnapurnaLabs CPU), QNAP® Systems, Inc. today completes the 3-bay RAID 5 NAS lineup with the introduction of the high-end home NAS TS-351. The TS-351 is powered by an Intel® Celeron® J1800 processor, and includes a wide range of features for media streaming, instant sharing, HDMI-output, and auto-tiering for optimal storage efficiency. The TS-351 provides homes and home offices with an excellent file management and multimedia entertainment center.

The high-performance TS-351 uses an Intel® Celeron® J1800 dual-core 2.41 GHz processor (burst up to 2.58 GHz), features 2 GB/4 GB DDR3L memory (upgradable to 8 GB), supports SATA 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s disks, and enables AES 256-bit encryption for both full volumes and shared folders. Featuring a minimalist design with effective airflow and cooling, the TS-351 can easily fit home space. Its tool-less 3.5-inch hard drive installation allows easy system setup and maintenance.

“The multi-functional TS-351 NAS features media streaming and real-time transcoding, along with dual-core performance and expandable memory to fulfill the versatile needs of home users,” said Dan Lin, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “users can also install M.2 NVMe SSDs into the TS-351 to optimize storage efficiency and to enhance application performance.”

The TS-351 provides two M.2 slots that support M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs with the 2280 form factor (M.2 SSDs are sold separately) for boosting the overall workflow of intensive, IOPS-demanding applications. With the latest QTS 4.3.5 operating system, users can utilize software-defined SSD extra over-provisioning (between 1% and 60%) to attain optimal SSD performance and maximized SSD lifespan with higher endurance. Coupled with QNAP’s Qtier technology that empowers the NAS with auto tiering, storage efficiency is optimized constantly across M.2 SSDs, 2.5-inch SSDs, and high-capacity HDDs with improved overall system performance and cost effectiveness.

The TS-351 is also a brilliant multimedia center that eases the management of a large collection of photos, videos, and music files. Smooth multimedia playback is provided by H.264 hardware decoding, real-time transcoding, and Full HD 1080p HDMI output. With the support of Plex® Media Server and various streaming protocols, the TS-351 can stream media files to computers, TVs, mobile devices, Apple TV®, Google Chromecast™ or DLNA™ compatible devices.

Running the intelligent QTS operation system, the TS-351 performs as an all-in-one NAS solution for file storage, backup, sharing, synchronization and centralized management. QTS provides block-based snapshot protection to help users effectively mitigate the threat of ransomware, the ability to host multiple virtual machines and containerized applications, and the QVR Pro app also allows users to create a professional yet affordable video surveillance system (with 8 free IP camera channels, and expandable up to 128 channels with optional licenses).
