QNAP has announced today that it is releasing a new 2-bay NAS device that is powered by an Intel dual-core processor. The TS-251D NAS can be used with the QuMagie, the smart AI photo management app from QNAP that uses AI recognition to group similar photos together in a relevant album.
The TS-251D is equipped with 4K media transcoding and streaming capabilities to offer users with an excellent cross-device multimedia experience while also providing a PCIe expansion slot so users can expand its core functions further. The built-in AI recognition groups photos into People, Things or Places albums, making them easier to find later.
Powering the QNAP TS-251D NAS is an Intel dual-core J4005 processors with a burst core frequency up to 2.7GHz, paired with up to 8GB DDR4 memory for high performance. The TS-251D includes a Gigabit LAN port and supports 6Gbps SATA drives to provide dependable read/write speeds with Intel AES-NI 256 hardware data encryption to ensure sensitive data is protected.
Users are able to quickly expand the TS-251D via the included PCIe slot with add-in cards such as a QNAP QXG – 10GbE/5GbE network card to upgrade the NAS for high-speed network environments. Alternatively, a QM2 expansion card could be installed to add M.2 SSD caching or a compatible wireless card could turn the TS-251D into a wireless storage and streaming platform.
