QNAP TS-431X-2G 16TB 4x4TB Seagate IronWolf 4 Bay NAS Desktop

The TS-431X supports 4 hard drives and comes with a built-in 10GbE SFP+ port for rigorous data processing, providing a cost-effective storage solution for demanding everyday business tasks. Powered by the QTS operating system, the TS-431X provides versatile all-in-one server functionalities and unique features including Container Station, which facilitates Internet of Things (IoT) development, and VJBOD (Virtual JBOD), which allows for expanding NAS capacity with another NAS. The TS-431X is an ideal entry-level NAS for businesses looking for backup, restoration, private cloud, storage for virtualization, and to future-proof their IT infrastructure for 10GbE networks.

High performance dual-core CPU with hardware encryption engine
The TS-431X is equipped with a dual-core AnnapurnaLabs, an Amazon company Alpine AL-212 1.7 GHz processor and 2GB/8GB DDR3 RAM (upgradable to 8GB). Coupled with SATA 6Gb/s, one 10GbE SFP+ LAN port and two Gigabit LAN ports, the TS-431X delivers up to 956 MB/s throughput. Supporting AES 256-bit volume-based data encryption, the TS-431X provides excellent encrypted speeds of up to 312 MB/s, boosting system performance & security while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the NAS.

10GbE-ready with built-in 10GbE SFP+ port
The TS-431X not only provides two inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports but also one 10GbE SFP+ port to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks, capable of delivering lightning-fast throughput for businesses that demand higher bandwidth for virtualization and fast backup & restoration for an ever-growing amount of data.

SSD cache acceleration
The TS-431X supports SSD caching for all four drives to greatly boost the IOPS performance of storage volumes and increase operational efficiency. It is perfect for improving the overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs.

Fast Disaster Recovery with Snapshots
The TS-431X supports block-based Snapshots, which can record and save the state of the file system and the metadata of the files outside the file system at any time. In the event of an unexpected NAS failure or if struck by a ransomware attack, the snapshots remain intact, allowing you to quickly and easily restore the system back to a previous normal state. You can preserve and restore multiple versions of the same file, folder or even the entire volume. The TS-431X supports up to 64 snapshots per volume or LUN (up to 256 in total). Snapshot Replica facilitates double protection that replicates snapshots to a remote QNAP NAS or server.

Initiate your IoT app with Container Station
QNAP Container Station exclusively integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux® systems on the TS-431X as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub® Registry for unlimited containerized applications. What's better, Container Station supports the QIoT Containers platform that helps quickly structure your IoT environment and deployment on your private IoT cloud, boosting microservices and modernizing legacy applications to drive more business opportunities.

Simplify email management with QmailAgent
Managing massive amounts of emails can be easier as QmailAgent helps you centrally manage and switch between different email accounts. Besides composing, reading and organizing emails, you can even directly attach files from the TS-431X when composing emails. The QmailClient companion app for iOS® or Android™ works alongside QmailAgent to provide convenient access to multiple email accounts from your mobile devices. You can use QmailAgent together with Qsirch, which supports searching through the .eml files stored on the TS-431X; or quickly send emails to people and groups by using the Qcontactz app.

Take, store, share, and collaborate on notes with Notes Station
Notes Station helps organize notes for your personal and working life. You can easily edit text, insert images/files from the NAS, fine-tune images with the image-editing tool, create sharing links to share notes, backup/restore your notes with snapshots, and ensure privacy with password protection and encryption. You can also invite people to collaborate on notes for greater teamwork! Notes Station provides a safe and convenient way of taking notes that are fully under your control on your TS-431X's private cloud.

Use NAS to expand other NAS capacity with VJBOD
Besides using physical storage expansion enclosures, there is an additional option to expand NAS storage capacity. QNAP VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) is network-based JBOD, allowing you to expand the storage of a QNAP NAS with multiple QNAP NAS units. The TS-431X supports VJBOD to economically expand the storage capacity of other QNAP NAS with its unused storage, and you can simply create virtual storage pools and volumes on the virtual disks for operating NAS services.

QTS 4.3 – The most intelligent and intuitive NAS operating system
QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more. New intelligent agent services have also been added to simplify system operations and management. QTS features an intelligent desktop allowing you to find desired functions quickly, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency. The built-in App Center provides various install-on-demand apps to extend NAS functionality. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences and incorporates advanced features.

Secure access with VPN Server & VPN Client
The new QVPN app integrates settings for VPN server and VPN client, and allows the TS-431X to be used
