A fast and vast private cloud storage with a range of multimedia and file management applications, the TS-262 is ideal for home users to maximise their digital lifestyle. Files, data and multimedia saved on the TS-262 can be accessed from all your connected devices, including phones, computers and smart TVs. A 2.5GbE port and HDMI™ 2.0 port come as standard, allowing you to enjoy lag-free multimedia streaming throughout your home and directly on your TV. The TS-262 can be geared up to fit future needs, supporting two M.2 PCIe slots for Qtier auto-tiering storage technology, and can be easily expanded to fit growing data needs. The TS-262 also supports Edge TPU, allowing you to easily organise your photos based on facial and object recognition with the QuMagie app.
Immediately multiply your network speed by 2.5 times while using existing CAT5e cables.
4K media playback and real-time transcoding; directly watch videos using HDMI™ 2.0 (4K @60Hz) output.
AI-Powered Image Recognition
Supports Edge TPU (optional purchase) for supercharged AI-powered image recognition.
Dual M.2 PCIe Slots
Attain greater NAS performance by installing M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe SSDs (sold separately).
Install a PCIe Gen3 x2 card to expand the core functionality of the TS-262, including a Multi-Gig 10GbE/5GbE network card, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) card, or a Wi-Fi 6 network card.
Expand Storage Capacity
Flexibly scale your total storage capacity by connecting USB expansion enclosures (please see the compatibility list).
Upgrade Your Home Network to 2.5GbE
Wi-Fi 6 and 5G are becoming the new normal for networking, and there’s no reason why your home wired network shouldn’t also get a boost. The TS-262 comes with single 2.5GbE RJ45 LAN port which supports existing CAT5e cables. If your computers don’t have 2.5GbE ports, you can use QNAP’s USB 3.2 Gen 1 to 5GbE adapter (model name QNA-UC5G1T) to take advantage of the huge speed increase that 2.5GbE provides over standard Gigabit Ethernet. QNAP also provide affordable 2.5GbE switches and other adapters for you to take full advantage of the TS-262’s 2.5GbE connectivity.
Intel Dual-Core Processor Burst up to 2.9 GHz
The TS-262 is powered by an Intel® Celeron® N4505 dual-core processor (burst up to 2.9 GHz), and supports SATA 6 Gb/s drives. The Intel® AES-NI encryption engine boosts encryption performance while also maintaining the security of your NAS data. You can flexibly install NVMe SSDs in the M.2 PCIe slots for cache acceleration to maximise network and storage performance for data-intensive applications or enable Qtier for auto-tiered storage for higher storage efficiency.
Accelerate AI–Powered Image Recognition and Caching with TPU and PCIe Expansion
The TS-262 has two M.2 PCIe Gen3 slots, enabling SSD caching or SSD storage pools for improved performance, or Edge TPU for AI image recognition.
Install M.2 NVMe SSDs for Cache Acceleration or Efficient Tiered Storage
The TS-262 supports SSD caching and features two M.2 slots that support M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs1 with 2280 form factors (sold separately) for boosting overall NAS performance. Qtier™ technology can also be used to empower the TS-262 with auto tiering that helps continuously optimise storage efficiency across all installed storage devices.
Accelerate AI–Powered Image Recognition with TPU
By leveraging a Google Edge TPU to QNAP AI Core (the AI-powered engine for image recognition), the TS-262 can perform high-speed face and object recognition. Google Edge TPU enables QuMagie to quickly process thousands of photos with high-speed AI Image recognition and classification, and QVR Face to analyse real-time video for instant facial recognition.
SSD Caching and Auto-Tiering Enable 24/7 Optimised Storage Efficiency
While SSD prices continue to fall, and SSD capacity and performance continue to increase, organisations can easily take advantage of SSD strengths. The TS-262 supports numerous SSD-aware features that significantly maximise NAS performance with high cost-effectiveness.
You can add additional SSD over-provisioning (1% ~60%) to avoid write amplification and improve SSD random write speeds and endurance. You can potentially attain enterprise-grade SSD performance levels from affordable consumer SSDs!
SSD Cache Acceleration
Enables SSD caching for increasing IOPS performance and reducing latency for storage volume. This feature is perfect for IOPS-demanding applications including databases and virtualisation. The TS-262 also supports write-only cache to boost write-intensive applications.
Qtier for Auto-Tiering
Qtier technology drives auto-tiered storage with continuous data optimisation across high-performance SSDs and high-capacity HDDs based on access frequency. I/O-Aware Qtier can reserve a cache-like space in the SSD tiered to handle burst I/O in real time.
Direct 4K HDMI™ Output for Multimedia
The TS-262 supports hardware decoding and real-time transcoding. The HDMI™ 2.0 output supports up to 4K (3840 x 2160p) @60Hz, allowing you to directly enjoy high-res videos on a TV or monitor.
Faster Image Identification with Integrated Intel® OpenVINO™ AI Engine
With integrated Intel® OpenVINO™ AI computing resources, the TS-262 accelerates AI image recognition performance without impacting other applications or services. QNAP AI Core primarily works with the QuMagie application.
Abundant I/O Capabilities with PCIe Expansion
The TS-262 has a PCIe Gen3 x2 slot that allows for installing a expansion card to expand the TS-262‘s potential.
The TS-262 supports the cutting-edge QTS 5, which builds upon its solid foundations with a smoother user interface and much more!
