QRM+ provides a single-point solution to discover, map, monitor and manage all Windows®, Linux® and IPMI devices in your network, and facilitates device discovery with a graphical topology diagram.
Q┬ĺcenter provides a central management platform to manage multiple QNAP NAS across various sites, monitor system logs, and manage NAS updates and maintenance.

Move business data to the cloud flexibly and economically

By deploying cloud storage gateways and enabling local caching on the TS-1673AU-RP, you can seamlessly use the cloud for storage, backup, and data recovery with low-latency access, providing an innovative hybrid cloud experience.

  • HybridMount
    file-based cloud gateway

    Flexibly expand your storage capacity by connecting to cloud storage. You can leverage QTS apps to manage and edit your cloud files or multimedia files. HybridMount is ideal for file server online collaboration and file-level data analysis.

  • VJBOD cloud
    block-based cloud gateway

    VJBOD Cloud supports mounting object cloud storage as a block-based volume or LUN on a NAS. The block-based data transmission uploads random data and large files to the cloud in blocks, and only transmits block-based volume or LUN changes. This is ideal for enterprise-level applications with large file transfer requirements (such as databases, VM volumes, and videos).


Complete backup planning

The TS-1673AU-RP provides reliable and cost-effective solutions for backup and disaster recovery planning.

  • HBS

    Consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization functions (using RTRR, Rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) for easily transferring data to local, remote and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan.

  • Snapshots for Volume & LUN

    Snapshots are essential for NAS data protection, and their block-level feature makes them a dependable data protection method in the face of growing ransomware threats. The TS-1673AU-RP supports up to 256 snapshots per volume/LUN, and up to 1,024 snapshots per NAS.

  • VM backup

    With its high performance, huge storage potential, integrated virtualization solutions, and snapshot support that records system status any time, the TS-1673AU-RP is perfect for backing up virtual machines.

  • Windows┬« and Mac┬« backup

    Use the license-free QNAP NetBak Replicator utility to back up and restore files from Windows® computers. Time Machine® is also supported for backing up Mac® computers.

Build an affordable Fibre Channel SAN environment

Common Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks (SAN) devices are often costly. By installing a QNAP 16Gb Fibre Channel card (QXP-16G2FC 16Gb) in the TS-1673AU-RP, you can set a Fibre Channel Target using the iSCSI & Fibre Channel app. Moreover, the LUN Masking and Port Binding features provide an additional layer of data security.


Flexible and economical storage expansion

QNAP provides easy storage expansion solutions. Here are several ways to expand the storage of your TS-1673AU-RP to accommodate data and business growth:

  • Attach Expansion Enclosures

    Besides supporting SAS or QXP SATA expansion cards, the TS-1673AU-RP provides USB interfaces to connect a RAID Expansion Enclosure or JBOD Storage Enclosure. Use the QTS Storage & Snapshots Manager to easily handle NAS capacity expansion.

  • VJBOD

    Use VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) to expand your storage capacity by using the unused storage of other QNAP NAS. Up to eight QNAP NAS can be mounted as local disks on the TS-1673AU-RP.

  • Upgrade RAID Capacity

    Hot swap lower-capacity drives with larger-capacity drives so that your TS-1673AU-RP can grow with your business.

  • Migrate to a New NAS

    Install your TS-1673AU-RP hard drives into a larger QNAP NAS and retain all your existing data and configurations.


More productivity applications
