QNAP Launches the Budget-Friendly TS-130 Home NAS for File Storage and Media Streaming with Snapshot Protection

  • Reading time:5 mins read

QNAP® Systems launched the snapshot-ready, intelligent, and budget-friendly TS-130. Adorned with a refreshing baby blue hue, the TS-130 is the ideal home NAS, providing centralized storage, backup, multimedia management, and sharing. The contents of a TS-130 are securely protected using Snapshots, a powerful backup feature which is uncommon in Home NAS of this price range. Coupled with a wide range of feature-rich and multimedia apps, the TS-130 can build smarter homes and a personal cloud for greater productivity and boundless entertainment.

The TS-130 uses a Realtek RTD1295 quad-core 1.4 GHz processor with built-in 1GB DDR4 RAM for running various personal and home NAS applications. A Gigabit Ethernet port and SATA 6Gbps drive support provides exceptional performance for home usage, while AES-256 encryption support allows users to secure their data without impacting system performance. With an energy-efficient processor and smart cooling, the TS-130 provides dependable performance without any distracting noises or unexpected utility bills. Users unfamiliar with installing a NAS can also take advantage of the TS-130’s simple toolless design, where the system can be set up easily and without even needing a screwdriver.

“In today’s world, home users can no longer rely on USB flash drives and portable hard drives – they need a NAS. By supporting Snapshots and other key data protection features, the TS-130 represents QNAP’s commitment to providing home users with features that were once reserved for only high-end storage devices,” said Stanley Huang, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “the TS-130 provides home users with great storage potential, and can be flexibly expanded by connecting QNAP’s USB expansion enclosures (TR-004 or TL-D800C). Cloud storage can even be connected using HybridMount, making the TS-130 an ideal choice for home and first-time NAS users.”

The TS-130 uses QNAP’s intelligent app-driven QTS operating system that provides comprehensive file storage, sharing, backup, synchronization, and data protection. Users can regularly back up Windows® or macOS® data to the TS-130 for centralized management and file sharing, while utilizing the Hybrid Backup Sync app to back up NAS data to the cloud. The ability to create multiple snapshot versions is key for protecting data against ransomware, and for quickly restoring data to previously-recorded states. Additional features include Qsync for synchronizing files across multiple devices (such as NAS, mobile devices, computers), and companion mobile apps that enable remote NAS access to increase productivity at work and home.

By supporting Plex®, TS-130 users can stream media files to mobile devices, DLNA® devices, and TVs using common media streaming devices including Roku®, Apple TV® (via Qmedia), Google Chromecast™, and Amazon Fire TV®. Combined with its companion app QuMagie Mobile, users can easily browse NAS photos anytime anywhere.
