Dual-core processor delivers high performance

Equipped with an AnnapurnaLabs, an Amazon company Alpine AL-212 dual-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A15 processor and 1GB DDR3 RAM, the TS-231P is a high-performance NAS for home, workgroups and SOHO users providing outstanding performance of up to 224 MB/s read & 176 MB/s write throughput. The TS-231P's enhanced hardware-based encryption and decryption engine provides transfer speeds of over 179 MB/s with AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, boosting system performance & security while ensuring the safety 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-231P becomes an ideal media center with remarkably high speeds for transferring a large amount of files and streaming bandwidth-intensive multimedia.

Fast Disaster Recovery with Snapshots

The TS-231P 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-231P 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.

Note: The Snapshots feature will be available from QTS 4.3.4.

 

High Efficiency with dual LAN support

The TS-231P 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).

 

Enhance productivity with multiple USB 3.0 ports

Equipped with three SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, the TS-231P allows you to flexibly arrange tasks with a wide range of external devices without interrupting your current workflow. You can back up files to USB drives, access data stored on SD cards via USB card readers, share up to 3 printers via network, and connect to a UPS to ensure a continual power supply.

Create digital notes on your private cloud

The revamped Notes Station features an optimized interface for a smoother user experience. Notes Station allows users to collectively write documents and helps users to track changes by retaining the revision history of documents. Notes Station provides useful image-editing tools, helping you create well-designed documents. You can also create sharing links to share documents in real time. Documents can also be encrypted to prevent unauthorized access, and snapshot backup is provided to retain different versions of documents from different time periods. With its importing/exporting and full-site backup functions, Notes Station supports backing up your documents to local or remote QNAP NAS.

Note: Notes Station 3 will be available from QTS 4.3
