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.
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.
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 as a VPN server with L2TP/IPsec, OpenVPN, and PPTP support, allowing you to securely access data shared within private local networks. It can also be used as a VPN Client to connect to other VPN servers (connecting multiple servers at the same time is possible) or virtual private networks through PPTP and OpenVPN for secure data transmission. You can connect devices to your NAS and the VPN server at home to access data on the LAN; via VPN Client on your NAS, for example, you can connect to VPN servers in foreign countries for accessing regionally-restricted services.
Well-rounded backup & disaster recovery solutions
The TS-431X offers flexible backup solutions for Windows® and Mac® users, Volume/LUN snapshots (up to 256 snapshots per volume or LUN, and maximum 1,024 snapshots per NAS), Snapshot Replica and Clone. It also supports Hybrid Backup Sync that consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) for easily transferring data to local, remote and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan. Supported cloud services include Amazon® Glacier, Azure™ Storage, Google Cloud Storage™, Google Drive™, Microsoft® OneDrive® for Business, Dropbox®, Amazon® Drive, Yandex® Disk, Box®, hubiC® and Amazon® S3/OpenStack Swift/WebDAV compatible services.
