Snapshots – a modern way to protect data
Essential for NAS data protection, snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and the metadata. You can use the Storage & Snapshots Manager or File Station to easily manage snapshots and quickly restore the system to its normal state if an error occurs. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record the changed data. Not only does this save storage space but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data.
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.
Host container applications
Container Station integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies. You can download apps from the built-in Docker Hub® to easily import/export container apps and manage access controls, enjoying the benefit of easy installation, transferability and high-efficiency as well as rapidly deploying application services across several platforms including the cloud, servers, and PCs.
QuDedup technology deduplicates data at the source, helping to reduce the time and storage space needed for backup.
Seamlessly connect local storage with cloud object storage to easily backup local application data to the cloud.
Enabling local caching on NAS for low-latency access to the connected cloud services.
Integrated AI algorithm for auto photo organization and a powerful search tool for more intuitive and streamlined photo management.
Build an affordable Fibre Channel SAN environment
Common Fibre Channel SAN (Storage Area Networks) devices are often expensive. Now you have more budge-friendly options to easily add your NAS to a SAN environment. Once a Marvell® Fibre Channel card (Marvell QLogic 2500 series 8Gb/s) has been installed in the TS-832X, you can set a Fibre Channel Target using the iSCSI & Fibre Channel app, and leverage the many benefits from QNAP NAS including snapshot protection, Qtier™ tiering storage, SSD cache acceleration and more. In addition, the LUN Masking and Port Binding features provide an additional layer of security for your data.

QTS – The intelligent, intuitive and creative NAS operating system
With multiple modularized applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more, making your NAS experience easier, efficient, and more flexible! The built-in App Center with hundreds of install-on-demand apps also opens up vast potential for extensive NAS functionality. The new Qboost provides a NAS optimization tool that helps accelerate applications, free up system resources, and schedule applications. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring you advanced features and optimized cloud experiences.
Optimized collaboration with seamless file sharing and sync
The TS-832X centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® networks. Coupled with Qsync (a utility that turns a QNAP NAS into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization) any file uploaded to the TS-832X will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. Files can be centrally managed using File Station, including files from mobile devices and optical disc drives. File Station also allows you to mount a remote NAS, and transfer files between your NAS and public cloud services for greater convenience.
