An easy-to-use, all-in-one backup solution

The TS-233 can do many things, but at its heart is a complete backup solution to protect your files and data. By regularly backing up your files and device content, you can make data loss a thing of the past.








Protect your data from ransomware threats with Snapshots

Snapshots are an advanced backup method and are normally reserved for high-end business NAS. QNAP provides snapshots as standard for all NAS – including the TS-233. Snapshots work by recording the current state of the system, allowing it to be restored back this state at any time - greatly helping in mitigating the threat of ransomware.

Back up PCs to your NAS

Always remember to back up! You should routinely (or automatically) back up files and data from your computer to your TS-233.

The best storage for your high-resolution multimedia files

High-resolution RAW files eat up phone storage so quickly. Whether you are a photographer enthusiastic, YouTuber, or professional photo/video editors, use the TS-233 with high-capacity hard drives to alleviate your storage anxiety and organize files efficiently as the best storage center. 

Enhanced multimedia experience

The TS-233 supports ARM NEON technology to accelerate video processing for a greater entertainment experience. Stream media files from the TS-233 to DLNA® devices and TVs using common media streaming devices including Roku®, Apple TV® (via Qmedia), Google Chromecast™, and Amazon Fire TV®.

 Playback quality may vary due to factors including playback software, file formats, system usage, and available bandwidth. H.265 hardware transcoding requires installing CAYIN MediaSign Player with Plus license.

Tips for a more productive workday

With a wide range of awesome apps, you can easily access files from various devices, instantly synchronize files with friends’ or colleague’s devices, quickly find specific files, and automatically organize your documents and media files. You can also map the TS-233’s shared folders as network drives on your computers, making accessing NAS files easy and intuitive. The TS-233 helps you save time while being more efficient and productive.

File Station

Access your NAS from anywhere

The myQNAPcloud service enables quick and easy remote access to your TS-233, allowing you to be always connected without needing to configure complex network settings. With myQNAPcloud Link you are provided with a unique domain name for your TS-233, and will automatically connect using the best method based on your network environment.

Protect your data with higher security

The TS-233 provides advanced privacy and security settings but is easy to set up and use. Besides IP blocking and HTTPS connectivity, there are more apps that help ensure an optimal level of NAS protection against threats like malware and hackers.

Host container applications

If you are curious about Docker or are a hobbyist developer, Container Station on the TS-233 integrates Docker® lightweight virtualization technology, allowing you to run all kinds of self-contained applications. You can download apps from the built-in Docker Hub®, including popular and fully-configured applications, and deploy them with just one click.

RAID Group


To ensure data security, system stability, and storage performance, the maximum number of drives for a single RAID group is now 16 (applicable to RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID TP, and subgroups of RAID 50 and RAID 60). Nevertheless, users can combine multiple RAID groups into a large storage pool that contains more than 16 drives, using RAID 50, RAID 60, or RAID 10 as the RAID configuration. This enhancement will only be applied to new RAID groups. All existing RAID groups and storage systems will not be affected.
