The TS-228 2-Bay Home & SOHO NAS Enclosure from QNAP lets you create a centralized storage pool of data for networked-connected devices by utilizing your hard drives. It comes with two bays that are compatible with 3.5" SATA-based hard drives to store your photos, videos, and other content. Installing two drives allow you to configure them to offer enhanced data transfer rates or redundancy of data.

QNAP has outfitted the TS-228 with a 1.1 GHz ARM v7 dual-core processor and 1GB of DDR3 RAM to run the multitude of install-on-demand apps as well as the QTS 4.2 operating system. Once connected to your network via a Gigabit Ethernet port, you can set up the TS-228 to stream media to your smart TVs, computers, gaming consoles, and Internet-connected devices. Additionally, one USB 3.0 port and one USB 2.0 port are on board, so you can expand the TS-228's storage capacity, back up data stored on the TS-228, and share a printer.
Dual-Core Processor
Powered by a 1.1 GHz ARM v7 dual-core processor and 1GB of DDR3 RAM, the TS-228 delivers an average of 111 MB/s read speeds and 87 MB/s write speeds once hard drives are installed. It is suitable as a multimedia center since you can back up or download files without impacting the TS-228's performance.
Light, Handy, and Tool-Less Design
The TS-228 sports a mini-tower form factor that takes little space, making it suitable for homes and small/home offices. Compared with a traditional NAS cooling fan, it features a compact and quiet exhaust design that helps dissipate heat with less noise and dust. With the tool-less housing, you can easily remove the TS-228's side cover to add or replace a hard drive.
Cross-Platform File Sharing, Centralized Data Storage
The TS-228 supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, Linux/UNIX networks. Data, logs, and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the TS-228 and protected by an integrated antivirus solution.
Backup & Disaster Recovery
QNAP's NetBak Replicator supports real-time and scheduled data backups on Windows systems, including Outlook email archiving. Apple Time Machine is also supported to provide Mac OS X users with a solution to back up data to the TS-228. A wide range of third-party backup software such as Acronis True Image and FarStone TotalRecovery Pro are supported. The front panel USB 3.0 port on the TS-228 features a One-Touch-Backup function, so you can instantly back up data from the TS-228 to external drives with just one click or alternatively move data from external drives to the TS-228. Disaster recovery solutions including RTRR, rsync, and cloud storage backup are also included.
Hybrid Backup Sync

You can synchronize files between the TS-228 and online cloud storage services in real time. Hybrid Backup Sync can detect sparse files to avoid backing up unnecessary data and supports file compression backup, which saves storage space. There are flexible settings for concurrent file processing and multi-thread data transfer to split large files into smaller parts, increasing the file transfer rate for greater work efficiency.
File Synchronization Across Devices and Clouds
Qsync utility turns your TS-228 into a safe, large-capacity data center for file synchronization. Any file uploaded to the TS-228 will be made available to all linked devices, such as computers, laptops, or mobile devices. Qsync is especially useful for frequent travelers for managing files and having up-to-date files on different devices. Qsync provides multiple ways of file synchronization and group file sharing, enhancing the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. It also supports centralized configuration, which allows you to remotely erase the Qsync folder on a lost device to avoid data breaches, and even restore it after you have retrieved the device.
File Station
The web-based File Station enables you to easily upload, download, and manage files on your TS-228 wherever there is an Internet connection. Supporting file extraction, folder creation, and smart search for files and folders, File Station allows you to share files with colleagues and friends via unique URLs, email, and a shared space. What's even better, you can also directly browse and transfer files between the TS-228 and public cloud services or directly open them with a Google Chrome office extension.
Thanks to the intuitive user interface of QTS, your NAS experience is smarter and smoother. Its modern flat design streamlines loading times, and the intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently.
Personal Cloud Creation
In contrast to limited storage space and potential security issues with public cloud services, the TS-228 is suitable for establishing a secure and large-capacity personal cloud.
