The TS-431P2 4-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP is a high-performance NAS that provides feature-rich applications for home & office use, including backup, synchronization, and remote access needs on a secure private cloud. Users will also be able to stream their multimedia library using DLNA and AirPlay, as well as build a surveillance center and use Snapshots to restore their NAS in the event of data loss or a system breach.

The TS-431P2 is powered by a 1.7 GHz Annapurna Labs AL-314 Quad-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. The 1GB of DDR3 RAM has a configuration of 1 x 1GB, can be upgraded to 8GB, and will allow quick access to frequently used file and programs. Network connectivity is achieved using the two Gigabit Ethernet ports which support failover and dual IP. There is also support for JBOD, single disk, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, and + hot spare, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both.

This 4-bay enclosure has the ability to natively house both 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s and SATA II 3 Gb/s hard drives or SSD drives, and screws are included that accommodate each drive size. With both Gigabit Ethernet ports in use, the TS-431P2 can deliver read speeds of up to 221 MB/s and write speeds of up to 195 MB/s. When using both Gigabit Ethernet ports with volume encryption, read speeds reach 220 MB/s and write speeds max out at 160 MB/s. Using the three USB 3.0 Type-A ports this QNAP NAS can be connected to other devices, such as QNAP expansion units. To help bolster security, AES 256-bit encryption helps to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.

QNAP's TS-431P2 4-Bay NAS Enclosure operates using an included 90W AC adapter that runs using 100-240 VAC. Also included are two Ethernet cables, a power cord, 3.5" HDD flat head screws, 2.5" HDD flat head screws, and a power cord. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.

General Features

1.4 GHz Alpine AL-314 Quad-Core Processor
Equipped with an Annapurna Labs AL-314 Quad-Core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A15 processor and 1GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 8GB), the TS-431P2 is a high-performance NAS for home, workgroups, and SOHO users, providing performance of up to 209 MB/s read & 157 MB/s write. With AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, the TS-431P2 provides transfer speeds of over 157 MB/s, boosting system performance and security while helping to ensure the confidentiality 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-431P2 becomes a media center with high speeds for transferring large amounts of files and streaming bandwidth-intensive multimedia.
SSD Cache Acceleration
The TS-431P2 supports SSD caching to boost the IOPS performance of storage volumes and increase operational efficiency. It is well-suited for improving the overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs.
Dual LAN Support
The TS-431P2 supports multiple port trunking modes, enabling administrators to set up link aggregation to 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).
Disaster Recovery with Snapshots
The TS-431P2 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-431P2 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.
QTS 4.3 Operating System
With modularized multiple applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more. Intelligent agent services have also been added to simplify system operations and management. The user-friendly QTS features an intelligent desktop that allows you to find desired functions quickly, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently with greater working efficiency, and provides a built-in App Center with install-on-demand apps to extend NAS functionality.
Qfiling Automates 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, 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," then the next Qfiling task can be run with just one click using the recipe.
Qsirch
The TS-431P2 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 filters 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.
Container Station
Container Station integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux systems on the TS-431P2, 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.
Centralized Email and Contact Management for Improved Communication Workflows
It can be hard to manage emails and contact information that are scattered across multiple computers, devices, and accounts - not to mention if important emails or contact information are lost or become inaccessible due to account closure or device malfunction/loss. QNAP QmailAgent and Qcontactz helps you centrally store and manage emails and contact information, making them accessible to your devices. Using the powerful Qsirch search engine, you can easily find specific contacts and emails whenever needed.
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-431P2's private cloud.
IFTTT Agent
IFTTT (If This Then That) is a popular web automation service. With the QNAP IFTTT Agent, you can create a near-unlimited number of NAS-related applets on the IFTTT website for greater automation and to boost your productivity. For example, if you set a trigger as "Any new photo (using Android Photos service)" and the action as "Download the URL to QNAP NAS (using QNAP service)," then all the photos taken using your Android device will be automatically downloaded to the TS-431P2. With IFTTT Agent, you can make your TS-431P2 smarter.
Hybrid Backup Sync
Hybrid Backup Sync provides a well-rounded solution for data backup, file synchronization and disaster recovery. With Hybrid Backup Sync, you can easily and securely back up data from your NAS to several local, remote, and cloud storage spaces. In the event of a system crash or critical hardware failure, you can quickly restore data from these storage spaces, minimizing downtime and reducing overall loss. Hybrid Backup Sync also takes advantage of cloud storage for one-way sync of your data to cloud storage through RTRR, Rsync, FTP, SMB protocol, or two-way sync your NAS with remote NAS/cloud services.
Share and Sync Files Across Devices
The TS-431P2 supports SMB, NFS, and AFP, allowing you to quickly share files to Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX devices. With QNAP's Qsync utility, the TS-431P2 becomes a safe data center for file synchronization with huge storage potential. Any file uploaded to the TS-431P2 can be synchronized to the linked devices such as computers, laptops, and mobile devices. You can also sync shared folders to increase the flexibility of collaboration and file sharing.

After you have finished setting your download tasks, you can turn off your computer and the TS-431P2 will silently finish downloading them. By installing the Qget app on your mobile device, you can easily search for download sources, download contents to the NAS, and manage download tasks on mobile devices from just about anywhere.
Expand Storage Capacity
The TS-431P2 supports online capacity expansion by connecting two QNAP expansion enclosures for storing rapidly-growing data, especially for storage-intensive applications such as video surveillance, data archiving, TV broadcast storage, and more. You can gradually expand the TS-431P2's storage on-demand, and use the QTS Storage Manager to handle the NAS capacity expansion and storage expansion enclosure management. With the support of QJBOD Express (JBOD enclosures roaming), you can just connect a large capacity QNAP expansion enclosure to the TS-431P2, and migrate data to another NAS through the JBOD enclosure without network connectivity.

The TS-431P2 is compatible with the UX-500P and UX-800P expansion enclosures. When using one UX-500P enclosure, up to seven total drives (NAS + enclosure) are supported, while adding a second UX-500P supports twelve total drives. If you need more storage, adding one UX-800P provides users with ten total drives and adding a second UX-800P increases that number to 18.
