The TS-231P2 2-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-231P2 is powered by a 1.7 GHz Annapurna Labs AL-314 Quad-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. The 4GB of DDR3 RAM has a configuration of 1 x 4GB, 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, and RAID 1, which respectively offer performance gains or 1:1 data redundancy.
This 2-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-231P2 can deliver download speeds of up to 209 MB/s and upload speeds of up to 157 MB/s. When using both Gigabit Ethernet ports with volume encryption, download speeds max out at 157 MB/s and upload speeds can reach as high as 146 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-231P2 2-Bay NAS Enclosure operates using an included 65W 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.

Expand Storage Capacity
The TS-231P2 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.
