High-performance quad-core CPU with hardware encryption engine

The TS-431X2 is equipped with a quad-core AnnapurnaLabs, an Amazon company Alpine AL-314 1.7 GHz processor and 2GB/8GB DDR3 RAM (upgradable to 8GB). With a 10GbE SFP+ LAN port and two Gigabit LAN ports, the TS-431X2 provides speeds of up to 1014 MB/s to meet the needs of bandwidth-demanding tasks. Supporting AES 256-bit volume-based data encryption, the TS-431X2 provides excellent speeds of up to 357 MB/s while ensuring the confidentiality of sensitive business data stored in the NAS.

Tested in QNAP Labs. Figures may vary by environment.

Test Environment:

NAS: Model: TS-431X2 with QTS 4.3.3
Volume type: RAID5 (4 x 1TB SSDs); Direct connected
Client PCs: Microsoft Windows 10 64bit; Intel® Core™ i7-4790 CPU; DDR3 1600Hz 16GB; 10GB file Windows Upload/Download

10GbE-ready with built-in 10GbE SFP+ port

The TS-431X2 not only provides two inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports but also one 10GbE SFP+ port to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks. 10GbE is 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-431X2 supports SSD caching to greatly boost the IOPS performance of storage volumes and increase operational efficiency. It is perfect for improving overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs.

Note: All the drive bays of the TS-431X2 support SSD caching.

 

Fast Disaster Recovery with Snapshots

The TS-431X2 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-431X2 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.

 

Upgrade your IT environment with QNAP's fast and affordable 10GbE Switch!

QNAP 10GbE/NBASE-T™ unmanaged switches allow you to instantly upgrade your network environment at a cost-effective price. With a 10GbE network you can enjoy blazing-fast transfer speeds, empower bandwidth-demanding tasks like virtualization, and enable simultaneous real-time access to large NAS-based files using multiple workstations (ideal for video editing and multimedia). QNAP also provides a 10GbE PCIe network expansion card for Windows®/Linux® PCs to take advantage of high-speed LAN environments.

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-431X2 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.

 

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”, and the next Qfiling task can be run with just one click using the recipe.

Note: A minimum of 2GB memory is required to use Qfiling

 

Qsirch - A smarter, faster way to search

The TS-431X2 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.

Note: A minimum of 2GB memory is required to use Qsirch
