From the manufacturer

Virtualization Station
QNAP TS-251 Introduction:

The TS-251 provides a high performance & high capacity storage solution for SOHO and home users. Powered by the advanced QTS operating system, the TS-251 performs as an easy-to-use yet powerful NAS for data backup, file synchronization, remote access, home entertainment, and is ideal for users to build a personal cloud to access their data easily.

Extend the Functionality of The TS-251 with Virtualization:

Introducing the world’s first consumer-grade NAS with integrated virtualization technology. The Virtualization Station transforms the TS-251 into a 2-in-a-box NAS that can function as an all-in-one NAS and a virtualization platform supporting multiple operating systems, fast virtual machine creation, virtual machine import/export, snapshot, and enables desktop operations on web browsers. With the easy-to-use interface, you can centrally manage all of the virtual machines created on the TS-251 with minimal effort. You can also download VMs on demand from online VM markets and import them to TS-251 without any complex procedure. Note: The TS-251 comes pre-installed with 1GB RAM. In order to use the Virtualization Station on the TS-251, you must upgrade the RAM to at least 2GB. 4GB or more is recommended. Maximum 1 VM can be run at the same time.

User-Based Permissions Settings:

The Virtualization Station administrator can create users and set proper permissions for each Virtual Machine (VM), helping to efficiently manage and allocate VM resources for users with different needs. With these permissions, users can work independently on their VM without worrying about their work being interrupted or data being lost because another user has accidentally powered-off the VM. User-based permissions include: Console permissions: Control and View-only/ VM controls: Power, Snapshot and Advanced.

HD Video Transcoding
Real-Time & Offline HD Video Transcoding

The TS-251 delivers superior real-time Full HD video transcoding to convert your videos to formats that can be smoothly played on PCs, mobile devices and Smart TVs. It allows for up to 5 devices to simultaneously view different videos stored on the TS-251 with on-the-fly hardware accelerated transcoding. The TS-251 allows you to enjoy instant videos on multiple devices - even those that lack computing power or have limited file format support - without the need for complicated and time-consuming file conversion. With the benefit of offline transcoding, if you can only connect to an Internet connection with limited/restricted bandwidth, you can still enjoy smooth videos by selecting a pre-rendered lower resolution to play the videos via File Station, Video Station, or the Qfile app for iOS & Android without affecting the TS-251’s performance running other applications. This also allows more people to play videos via streaming. The TS-251 also allows you to set a dedicated folder for automatic video transcoding.

Stream Media via DLNA, AirPlay, and Plex

You can use DLNA-compatible devices such as HDTVs, Smart TVs, Sony PS3, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Hi-Fi systems to enjoy HD quality videos and high-resolution audio content such as DSD (Direct Stream Digital) audio format stored on the TS-251. You can also use the Qfile app on an iOS device to browse videos and photos stored on the TS-251 and play on the TV via Apple TV. By installing the QAirplay app, available on the QTS App Center, you can stream your media content directly on a TV via Apple TV. The media contents are streaming on Apple TV, bypassing your mobile device, thus saving the energy of your mobile device. The TS-251's support for Plex Media Server organizes all of your media with rich information and transforms the TS-251 into a powerful & easy to use streaming machine with DLNA, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Google TV support.

HD Station
Enjoy Full HD Videos with HD Station via HDMI

QNAP HD Station integrates the powerful XBMC v12 media player and web browser. With HDMI 1.4a connectivity, you can connect the TS-251 to a HDTV to enjoy your rich multimedia content on the big screen. The splendid user interface and support for 7.1 channel surround sound audio passthrough bring smooth playback of Full HD videos providing a quality home theater experience. You can also turn your mobile devices into remote controls by installing the Qremote app or use QNAP RM-IR002 remote control and MCE remote controls via the built-in IR receiver of the TS-251 for convenient & easy control of the HD Station. Moreover, the HD Station supports YouTube Pairing, allowing you to select a YouTube video on your smartphone, tablet or computer and play it on HDTV via the TS-251.

App Center
Explore the Unlimited Possibilities of Your Turbo NAS with App Center

The Turbo NAS supports features expansion by installing additional App Center apps developed and shared in the Linux open source community. The QNAP App Center incorporates numerous apps listed by categories, including business, content management system, communication, download, entertainment, utilities, and so forth. All the App Center apps can be installed and run right away with just one click.

Dropbox-Like File Synchronization Across Computers and Mobile Devices

With Qsync, your TS-251 is turned into a safe data center for file synchronization. Any file uploaded to the TS-251 will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. Qsync is especially useful for frequent travelers in managing files and ensuring that different devices have the most up-to-date files. Qsync provides multiple ways for file synchronization and group file sharing, greatly enhancing the flexibility of team projects and collaboration.

Personal Cloud
Easily Build Your Personal Cloud and Access Anywhere

QNAP’s myQNAPcloud provides an always-connected infrastructure for business and home users to build their private or personal cloud with ease. Through any web browser or the free mobile app the TS-251 becomes your personal cloud so you are always connected to your data. Take advantage of the myQNAPcloud service, which allows you to remotely access your TS-251 wherever you are. Instantly stream or share your multimedia contents and share them with your friends.
