Built to deliver high performance, flexible expansion capabilities, and versatile applications for small- and medium-sized businesses, the TS-432XU 4-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP is a 1 RU rackmount NAS that is 10GbE ready with two SFP+ ports that are capable of high-speed data transmission. It is equipped with a PCIe Gen 2.0 x4/x2 slot that can accommodate a QNAP QM2 expansion card for adding additional 10GbE connectivity and/or storage with an M.2 PCIe or SATA SSD. The TS-432XU may also be deployed to suit various needs for data storage, file backup, disaster recovery, containerized applications, surveillance, and more.
The TS-432XU is powered by a 1.7 GHz AnnapurnaLabs Alpine AL-324 ARM Cortex-A57 Quad-Core processor. The 2GB of DDR4 RAM has a configuration of 1 x 2GB, which may be upgraded to 16GB, will allow quick access to frequently used files and programs. Network connectivity is achieved using the two 10GbE SFP+ ports, as well as two Gigabit Ethernet ports which support failover, multi-IP settings, and port trunking/NIC teaming. There is also support for JBOD, single disk, and a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, each of which offers data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both.
This 4-bay enclosure has the ability to natively house both 3.5" and 2.5" SATA II and SAYA III hard drives or SSD drives, and screws are included that accommodate each drive size. With both 10GbE ports in use, the TS-432XU can deliver read speeds of up to 1726 MB/s and write speeds of up to 684 MB/s. When using both 10GbE ports with volume encryption, which helps to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches, read speeds top out at 1189 MB/s and write speeds reach 443 MB/s. Using the four external USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other devices, such as QNAP expansion units. Up to two UX-800U-RP or UX-1200U-RP expansion enclosures are supported, and please note that using an expansion enclosure enables support for RAID 50 and 60.
QNAP's TS-432XU 4-Bay NAS Enclosure operates using a single 250W power supply. Included are two Ethernet cables, one power cord, sixteen 3.5" HDD flat head screws, twelve 2.5" HDD flat head screws, two hangers, and two holders. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.
