One NAS, two systems, infinite applications and fun

The TAS-168 is the first NAS featuring dual systems - QTS and Android™. While QTS delivers efficient data transmission, rich multimedia functionalities and solid data security, Android™ administers the 4K (H.265 & H.264) video playback over HDMI, runs Android™ apps, and can install apps from Google Play™. Both systems share the same storage database, so all your media files and documents can be accessed from QTS and Android™ simultaneously. You can use QNAP’s Qfile app to upload photos and enjoy them on HDMI display through Android™. Similarly, files downloaded from Android™ can be managed and shared through the QTS OS. With simple and efficient file storage combined with rich media playback applications, experience the power of the QTS-Android Combo NAS with the TAS-168!

Terabytes of storage capacity

The TAS-168 supports terabytes of storage capacity to accommodate large photo, music and video collections. Unlike other Android™ devices with constrictive storage capacities, you can download as many apps as you want to without worrying about running out of space.

Plug in a keyboard, mouse and monitor, and everything is ready for you

By simply plugging in a keyboard, mouse and HDMI display, you can directly manage, edit and play files stored on the TAS-168 without needing an additional PC. On the HDMI display you will find your familiar Android™ interface, and you can start using various QNAP apps including Qfile, Qmanager, Qphoto, Qvideo, Qmusic, MyNAS, and Kodi™. The Android™ experience is your TAS experience, so download all your Android™ apps to the TAS-168, and enjoy videos, apps and file management on a monitor or TV for the best visual comfort.

Control your multimedia experience with the free remote control

You can directly control the Android™ interface with the free QNAP remote control (RM-IR003) to play media, easily fast-forward, pause or return to a playing video from another screen. With the remote control and 4K (H.265 & H.264) support*, the TAS-168 can provide the ultimate home theater experience and great fun. You will feel how easy it is to play your favorite movies, TV series and programs stored on the TAS-168 or streamed from apps without paying extra for set-top boxes and with no complicated settings at all.

Google Play & Qmarket for unlimited apps

The TAS-168’s Android™ system provides the Google Play™ store and Qmarket. You can find various music, movies, books, and Android™ apps and games on Google Play™, and also download QNAP apps and access other app marketplaces from Qmarket. The combination of two app-centric systems allows you to enjoy infinite applications and fun.

Sync with your Google account

The TAS-168 has been completely certified by Google® and can synchronise with your Google® accounts. All the Google® files and settings based on your Gmail™ account can be synchronised and backed up to the TAS-168. You do not have to do any settings again. Backup and sync for contact lists and files are very convenient.

Well-rounded backup & disaster recovery solutions

QNAP NetBak Replicator supports real-time and scheduled data backup on Windows®, and Time Machine® is also supported for Mac® data backup. The TAS-168's front-panel USB port features a one-touch-copy function for you to instantly back up data from external drives to the TAS-168 with just one click, or alternatively to back up data from the TAS-168 to external drives. Disaster recovery solutions including RTRR, rsync and cloud storage backup (Amazon® S3, Amazon® Glacier, Microsoft® Azure, ElephantDrive®, Dropbox® and Google Cloud Storage™) are also included.

A private cloud without constrains

In contrast to the limited storage space and potential security issues with public cloud services, the TAS-168 is advantageous for establishing a secure and large-capacity private cloud. The myQNAPcloud service allows remote access to files stored on the TAS-168 and supports automatic port forwarding for UPnP routers, My DDNS service and CloudLink, allowing you to easily access files, share multimedia, and check your system status from anywhere.
