QNAP TS-431P2 4 Bay Desktop NAS Enclosure
Manufacturer Part Code: TS-431P2-1G
Order Code: NPQNA-TS431P21G
Category: All NAS Devices
TS-431P2-1G 4BAY 1.7 GHZ QC 1GB
The TS-431P2 features three USB 3.0 ports and dual Gigabit LAN ports, delivering outstanding multitasking performance for your backup, synchronization, and remote access needs on a secure private cloud. The quad-core TS-431P2 provides powerful hardware capabilities, enabling Qfiling (automated file organization) and Qsirch (full-text search) for more intelligent day-to-day NAS use. Many feature-rich apps are available to enhance your productivity & digital life, including Notes Station (create digital notes on a secure private cloud and share with colleagues and friends), QmailAgent (centralize email account management and back up emails), and Qcontactz (centrally store and manage contact information). The TS-431P2 also supports Snapshots, allowing you to easily restore your TS-431P2 to a previous state in the event of an unexpected NAS failure or when struck by a ransomware attack.
Quad-core processor delivers high performance
Equipped with an AnnapurnaLabs, an Amazon company Alpine AL-314 quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A15 processor, 1GB/4GB DDR3 RAM (expandable to 8GB), the TS-431P2 is a high-performance NAS for home, workgroups and SOHO users providing outstanding performance of up to 221 MB/s read & 195 MB/s write throughput. With AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, the TS-431P2 provides transfer speeds of over 220 MB/s, boosting system performance and security while ensuring the confidentiality of sensitive personal data stored in the NAS. When used with a compatible 802.11ac or dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz 802.11n USB Wi-Fi adapter, the TS-431P2 becomes an ideal media center with remarkably high speeds for transferring a large amount of files and streaming bandwidth-intensive multimedia.
SSD cache acceleration
The TS-431P2 supports SSD caching 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.
High Efficiency with dual LAN support
The TS-431P2 supports multiple port-trunking modes, enabling administrators to set up link aggregation to increase total data transmission potential. Failover and dual IP are also supported to ensure continuous system operations. Supported port-trunking modes include: Balance-rr (Round-Robin), Active Backup, Balance XOR, Broadcast, IEEE 802.3ad, Balance-tlb (Adaptive Transmit Load Balancing) and Balance-alb (Adaptive Load Balancing).
Fast Disaster Recovery with Snapshots
The TS-431P2 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-431P2 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.
QTS 4.3 – The most intelligent and intuitive NAS operating system
With modularized multiple applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more. New intelligent agent services have also been added to simplify system operations and management. The user-friendly QTS features an intelligent desktop that allows you to find desired functions quickly, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently with greater working efficiency, and provides a built-in App Center with 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.
Qfiling automates your file organization
Qfiling helps automate file organization for sorting files spread through multiple folders, helping reduce the time needed to find important files. Users can categorize files and determine filing conditions; and schedule filing tasks to be carried out periodically. The ?Recipe? feature allows users to save frequently-used filing conditions as an ?exclusive recipe?, then the next Qfiling task can be run with just one click using the recipe.
Qsirch - A smarter, faster way to search
The TS-431P2 supports Qsirch, a search tool for quick file searching. Qsirch supports thumbnail previews, and even remembers your search history, allowing you to quickly navigate to files you've previously searched for. The revamped Qsirch adds ?search operators? and advanced search filter and tags, allowing you to find files faster with more precise results. Qsirch also provides a Helper for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox that allows you to search for files on your NAS when you use Google Search. Qsirch is a huge productivity boost that greatly reduces the time spent looking for files on the NAS, allowing you to focus on other tasks.
Start developing IoT apps with Container Station
Container Station exclusively integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux® systems on the TS-431P2 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.
