QNAP Launches TS-x53DU Series Quad-core 2.5GbE Rackmount NAS with PCIe Expansion

QNAP Systems, Inc., a leading computing, networking and storage solution innovator, today launched the TS-x53DU series NAS. Available in 4-bay, 8-bay and 12-bay models, the TS-x53DU series has two 2.5 GbE RJ45 ports to enable smoother multimedia playback and everyday usage. The TS-x53DU series also supports Snapshot backup and HBS (Hybrid Backup Sync) for local, off-site and cloud backup.

The TS-x53DU series are powered by Intel Celeron J4125 quad-core 2.0 GHz processors (burst up to 2.7 GHz) and support up to 8 GB DDR4 memory. With Intel AES-NI encryption and two 2.5 GbE RJ45 ports, the TS-x53DU provides users with fast and secure storage. The PCIe 2.0slot allows users to enhance core NAS functionality by installing a compatible PCIe card (such as a network card, a QM2 network/storage card for adding SSD caching/10 GbE connectivity).
The TS-x53DU series also represents QNAP's commitment to Multi-Gigabit Ethernet, and can be paired with other budget-friendly QNAP solutions including managed/unmanaged switches and network adapters.

Businesses and organizations can immediately benefit from the various applications of the TS-x53DU. Hyper Data Protector can backup unlimited VMware and Hyper-V environments, HybridMount and VJBOD Cloud provide cloud storage gateways that integrate private and public cloud storage and enable local caching, and HBS (Hybrid Backup Sync) realizes efficient local/remote/cloud backup jobs with QuDedup technology that deduplicates backup files at the source to optimize time, space, and bandwidth usage. Administrators also benefit from a Notification Center which consolidates all system events and alerts into a single-app solution, and the Security Counselor that scans for malware and recommends security settings.

The TS-x53DU series is flexible and versatile. Its storage capacity can be expanded by connecting TL and TR storage expansion enclosures. The functionality of the TS-x53DU series can also be further extended using apps from the built-in QTS App Center, such as hosting multiple virtual machines and containers, implementing a professional video surveillance system, centrally managing multiple email accounts, automatic file organization, and more. Users can also download companion mobile apps to their Android and iOS devices to remotely access their NAS to improve work efficiency.

This is a weird product... Anyone (or small business) who's got a serious enough setup for a rack mounted unit would probably have a network faster than 1/2.5gig, right? There's a niche for everything, but this seems pretty particular

My guess is they want to complement their latest line of SMB NAS with 2.5G NIC.

it doesn’t seem that odd IMO.

There is a PCIe expansion therefor it can be upgraded to 10GbE and or NVMe SSD:
Extend NAS Functionality with a PCIe Card
With a PCIe Gen 2.0 x 2 slot, the TS-453DU provides flexibility in extending NAS functionality and potential applications. To optimize system performance, install a QNAP QM2 card to add M.2 SATA or NVMe SSD caching/10GbE connectivity and use with Qtier tiered storage for optimal system performance. Wireless connectivity can be added by installing a QNAP QWA-AC2600. A QXG-10GbE/5GbE network card adds extra high-speed network ports. Alternatively, you can add an affordable QNAP QNA-UC5G1T USB 3.2 Gen 1 to 5GbE adapter to enjoy higher network speeds or boost the USB connectivity by installing a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) card.

I'm legitimately interested in the 8 bay and 12 bay models. The TS-1253DU-RP and TS-853DU-RP. Unfortunately it depends on the MSRP and street price.
