The compact TS-963X is the size of a 5-bay NAS but accommodates five 3.5-inch HDD bays and four 2.5-inch SSDs bays that deliver high-performance, high-capacity storage potential including automatic file/data tiering based on access frequency (Qtier Technology).

It’s powered by QTS, the QNAP NAS operating system that supports storage management features such as snapshots, Virtual JBOD (VJBOD), and more. His says that QTS also offers various apps to provide essential functionality and additional value-added services, including Hybrid Backup Sync for backing up and syncing files with local, remote, and cloud storage; QVR Pro can provide a professional surveillance solution; and Virtualization Station and Linux Station allow users to host virtual machines that run Windows, Linux, or UNIX-like operating systems.
