The TOS 5.1 kernel has been updated from 4.19 to 5.15, optimized EXT4/Btrfs/NTFs file systems and SMB3 file server, used ext4/f2fs/ubifs file system encryption in the encryption API, enabled Apple M1 SoC functionality under Linux and added USB 4 interface support, which greatly improved the performance and security of file system.
4K Hardware Decoding
The new hardware decoding driver for Intel Jasper Lake GPU is added, which will significantly improve 4K video hardware decoding capability for TerraMaster NAS. It can transcode video in real time into a file format that can be played smoothly on various devices, and also supports multiple streaming services such as DLNA and UPnP to meet various video playback needs.
Storage pool expansion via USB
By connecting TerraMaster USB disk array, users can easily expand the storage space of the TNAS storage pool. It supports TRAID/RAID 0/RAID 1/RAID 5/RAID 6 array mode and provide 10Gb storage bandwidth. Compared with eSATA or mini SAS expansion enclosures, TerraMaster USB expansion enclosures are more economical and more convenient.
TerraMaster Hyper Cache is TerraMaster unique SSD cache acceleration tool which can provide up to 3 cache modes to suit different usage needs, and can also create disk arrays for SSDs to increase cache speed and security. Such configuration delivers high-speed storage that is ideal for video editing.
TOS 5.1 optimizes system messages and divides message notifications into four levels: information, success, error, and warning. Each level of messages is marked with a more eye-catching symbol of different colors. User can always keep track of any abnormalities in the system and ensure the security of the system and data.
USB Storage Management

Optimized Docker Manager
TerraMaster launches updated version of Docker Manager and updates the Docker engine to 20.10.17 version. The optimized interface brings it in line with users’ aesthetics and usage habits. Container deployment is more flexible and TerraMaster NAS utilization is optimized.
TOS 5.1 applied the more powerful Intel OpenVINO AI computing engine, combined with the new Terra Photos application, the intelligent photo recognition efficiency increased by 30%. Terra Photo is designed for home users and photography enthusiasts to manage photo storage, share and access photos from anywhere.
