The TS-431P 4-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP is a powerful, yet affordable 4-bay NAS for middle-end small and home offices that can be used for backup, synchronization, remote access, and home entertainment with many feature-rich apps available, including Notes Station, QmailAgent, and Qcontactz. Its four drive bays are capable of supporting 3.5" SATA III (6 Gb/s) and SATA II (3 Gb/s) hard drives, as well as 2.5" SATA III (6 Gb/s) and SATA II (3 Gb/s) hard drives and SSDs.

The TS-431P runs on the QTS 4.2 operating system, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your QNAP NAS. Its CPU is a dual-core 1.7 GHz ARM Cortex A15, fabricated by AnnapurnaLabs, and its 1GB of DDR3 RAM allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving read speeds of up to 223 MB/s and write speeds of up to 172 MB/s, as well as transfer speeds of over 190 MB/s with AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption. It features three USB 3.0 ports Type-A which allows it to be connected to your Windows, Mac, or Linux/UNIX system. Network connectivity is achieved via two integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports, with link aggregation to increase the total data transmission potential. Failover and dual IP are also supported to ensure continuous system operations, and data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android applications.

The TS-431P is engineered for quiet operations, generating 19.5 dBA at low speeds. It operates on 100-240 VAC and includes two Ethernet cables, flathead screws for 3.5" and 2.5" drives, a power adapter, and a power cord. It is protected by a limited 2-year warranty.

General Features

Dual-Core Processor Delivers High Performance
Equipped with an AnnapurnaLabs Alpine AL-212 dual-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A15 processor and 1GB DDR3 RAM, the TS-431P is a high-performance NAS for home, workgroups, and SOHO users, providing performance of up to 223 MB/s read & 172 MB/s write throughput. The TS-431P's enhanced hardware-based encryption and decryption engine provides transfer speeds of over 190 MB/s with AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, boosting system performance & security while helping to ensure the safety of sensitive personal data stored in the NAS. When used with a compatible 802.11ac or dual-band 2.4/5 GHz 802.11n USB Wi-Fi adapter, the TS-431P becomes a media center with high speeds for transferring a large amount of files and streaming bandwidth-intensive multimedia.
QTS - Simple and Efficient
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 quickly, 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, bringing greater working efficiency. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences to you.
High Efficiency with Dual LAN Support
The TS-431P supports multiple port-trunking modes, enabling administrators to set up link aggregation to help increase total data transmission potential. Failover and dual IP are also supported to help 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).
QmailAgent
QmailAgent is an online email client that helps you manage multiple email accounts, allowing you to access all of your emails and to easily switch between different accounts. It provides complete functionality for composing, reading, and organizing emails. You can even attach files, photos, and documents from the TS-431P when composing emails. iOS and Android users can use the QmailClient app to quickly check multiple email accounts with mobile devices, and to browse & send emails using the QmailAgent on their TS-431P. You can use QmailAgent together with Qsirch, which supports searching through the .eml files stored on the TS-431P, to make searching through and managing massive amounts of emails much easier.
Qcontactz
Qcontactz with the high-capacity TS-431P helps you centrally store and manage contact information for colleagues, business partners, families, and friends. Other features include: importing from Google accounts, importing/exporting CSV or vCARD 3.0 files, automatic identification of frequently-used contacts, encryption for sensitive/confidential contact information, smart searching, and more. Qcontactz offers snapshot backups that enable you to revert to a previous version of your contacts list according to your needs. A companion app for Android phones and iPhone is also available for easy access to contacts. Qcontactz can also be used with QmailAgent to create email workflow environments.
Backup Solutions to Secure Data
The TS-431P is a comprehensive centralized backup center for multiple files. The front panel USB port features a one-touch-copy function for you to instantly back up data on USB drives to the TS-431P or alternatively to back up data from the TS-431P to USB drives. You can use QNAP NetBak Replicator to back up files on Windows (including Outlook email archiving) to the TS-431P, or use Time Machine for Mac data backup. A wide range of third-party backup software (such as Acronis True Image and Symantec Backup Exec) are also supported to facilitate system backup and restoration.
Disaster Recovery Solutions
Hybrid Backup Sync consolidates backup, restoration, and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) into a single app 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, Dropbox, Amazon Drive, Yandex Disk, Box, and Amazon S3/OpenStack Swift/WebDAV compatible services. Hybrid Backup Sync supports multi-version backup, flexible job scheduling, and file compression to save storage space, and more.
Comprehensive Security Options
In open network environments, business data may be exposed in a potential hack. The TS-431P provides numerous security options, such as encrypted access, IP blocking, 2-step verification, and more. Administrators can also control the access rights of each user to different folders, preventing unauthorized access to important files. The TS-431P supports AES 256-bit encryption, preventing sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breach even if the hard drives or the entire system were stolen.
Cross-Platform File Sharing, Centralized Data Storage
The TS-431P supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX networks. Data, logs, and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the TS-431P.
Manage Your Files via the Internet
File Station brings conventional desktop-style file operations to web browsers, allowing you to upload, download, and manage files on your TS-431P wherever there is an Internet connection. Supporting file extraction, folder creation, and smart search for files and folders, File Station also allows you to easily share files via unique URLs protected with reliable security features, SSL, and password options. You can even directly browse and transfer files between the TS-431P and public cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Box, Yandex Disk, and Amazon Drive, open office files directly with a Google Chrome office extension, and also view your files on Google Docs or Office Online.
Container Station - LXC and Docker Containers Inclusive
