As all similar QNAP products, the new TS-453Bmini supports VMware, Citrix, cross-platform file sharing, flexible backup solutions for Windows/Mac, and more. The two hardware setups mentioned earlier also can be expanded by using an 8-bay UX-800P expansion unit, increasing the maximum amount of storage available to 120 TB (using 10 TB drives).
QNAP TS-453Bmini is available and can be acquired from one of the many QNAP resellers presents in most markets. The price depends on retailer and location.
