QTS-Linux dual systems, geared for the IoT era
The QNAP TS-653A-4G’s QTS-Linux dual systems are based upon QNAP’s advanced virtualization technologies. The revolutionary architecture of the TS-653A enables users not only to download rich apps from QTS App Center but also to develop or utilize IoT packages for Linux® and display them using HDMI output. With the TS-653A, you can develop and install various IoT packages on demand and centrally store the data on the TS-653A, benefiting from a secure private storage and development solution. Simply plug in a keyboard, mouse and HDMI monitor to the TS-653A, and use the Linux Station as if you were using a PC*. You can also operate the Linux Station as a remote desktop via web browser for instant management**.
* To use the Linux Station, you must install it from the App Center.
** The remote desktop function does not support remote audio output
