QNAP TS-332X Overview

The TS-332X 3-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP not only let you build a RAID 5 array, but also features a 10GbE SFP+ port and three M.2 2280 SATA III SSD slots to enable higher performance for demanding operations. Built with a minimalist design, this NAS can easily fit within your workspace.

This NAS is powered by a 1.7 GHz Alpine AL-324 Quad-Core processor and 2GB DDR4 RAM, which can be upgraded to 16GB. The 10GbE port drives non-encrypted read speeds of up to 1085 MB/s and write speeds of up to 525 MB/s, while transferring files with encryption allows for read speeds of up to 914 MB/s and write speeds of 407 MB/s. There are also two Gigabit Ethernet ports.

This 3-bay enclosure can natively house 3.5" SATA III hard drives, as well as 2.5" SATA III hard drives and SSDs using an adapter. When equipped with 2.5" and/or M.2 SSDs, users will have the option to take advantage of SSD caching to improve the workflow of random IOPS-demanding applications or use Qtier technology with auto tiering to optimize storage efficiency across M.2 SSDs, 2.5" SSDs, and high-capacity hard drives. Using the three 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other QNAP devices, including two TR-002, TR-004, TR-004U, UX-500P or UX-800P expansion enclosures. Additionally, the TS-332X is validated with FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, helping to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.

QNAP has engineered this NAS to support JBOD and single disk modes, plus a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, and 5, each of which offers data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both. It operates using a 90W power supply and includes two Ethernet cables, a power cord, a 90W AC adapter, a 2.5" to 3.5" drive adapter, and an M.2 SSD heatsink. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.

General Features

Quad-Core CPU and 10GbE SFP+ Port

The TS-332X is equipped with a 1.7 GHz Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-324 Cortex-A57 Quad-Core processor with 2GB of DDR4 RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and provides three SATA III 6 Gb/s drive bays. When processing AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, the TS-332X also provides strong encryption performance while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the NAS. Alongside a pair of Gigabit LAN ports, the TS-332X features a 10GbE SFP+ port to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks, delivering a major speed increase for large-data applications, fast data transfer, backup & restoration, and containerized applications.

M.2 SSDs for Cache Acceleration of Efficient Tiered Storage

The TS-332X features SSD caching, and also supports up to three SATA 6 Gb/s M.2 SSDs with 2280 form factors (sold separately). You can set up a high-capacity SSD cache for boosting IOPS-demanding applications or create a RAID 5 tiered storage with balanced performance and redundancy protection. Qtier technology empowers the TS-332X with auto tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across M.2 SSDs, 2.5" SSDs, and high-capacity HDDs with around-the-clock acceleration. Qtier 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD-tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSDs.

Enjoy Optimized SSD Performance with Extra Over-Provisioning

SSDs can allow your NAS to deliver higher performance, faster file backups, smoother multimedia experiences, and optimized virtualization applications. The QTS 4.3.5 takes SSD functionality even further by supporting software-defined SSD RAID extra over-provisioning (OP) that enables you to allocate additional OP space from 1% to 60%, beneficial for optimal SSD random write speeds and extended lifespan with higher endurance. Now you can use affordable consumer SSDs for the TS-332X, adjust the SSD OP, and potentially attain performance and endurance levels similar to enterprise-grade SSDs.

Elegant Appearance, Effective Airflow

The TS-332X sports a stylish and elegant look with an industrial design concept to provide effective airflow and better cooling, ensuring smooth performance even under the heavy loads. The toolless 3.5" hard drive installation allows easier system setup and maintenance, while the front-panel LEDs assist in viewing system status.

Snapshots Protect Your Data Against Ransomware

Essential for NAS data protection, snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. You can use Storage & Snapshots Manager or File Station to easily manage snapshots and quickly restore the system to its normal state if an error occurs. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record the changed data. Not only does this save storage space, but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data.

Upgrade Your IT Environment with QNAP's 10GbE Switch

QNAP's 10GbE/NBASE-T unmanaged switches allow you to instantly upgrade your network environment at a cost-effective price. With a 10GbE network, you can enjoy fast transfer speeds, empower bandwidth-demanding tasks like virtualization, and enable simultaneous real-time access to large NAS-based files using multiple workstations (ideal for video editing and multimedia). QNAP also provides a 10GbE PCIe network expansion card for Windows/Linux systems to take advantage of high-speed LAN environments.

Host Container Applications

With Container Station, you can enjoy both LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies. You can run Ubuntu, Debian, and Fedora containers, download apps from the built-in Docker Hub, easily import/export container apps and manage access controls, and rapidly deploy application services across several platforms including the cloud, servers, and PCs.

Optimized Collaboration with Seamless File Sharing and Sync

The TS-332X centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP, and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux/UNIX networks. Coupled with Qsync (a utility that turns a QNAP NAS into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization) files uploaded to the TS-332X will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. Files can be centrally managed using File Station, including files from mobile devices and optical disc drives. File Station also allows you to mount a remote NAS, and transfer files between your NAS and public cloud services for greater convenience.

Well-Round, Multi-Point Backup

Hybrid Backup Sync provides a reliable, flexible backup & disaster recovery solution to help organizations in routine backup jobs with cost-efficiency and high productivity. It centralizes backup, restore, and synchronization for you to transfer your data in the TS-332X to other QNAP NAS, remote server, USB storage (one touch copy), or cloud storage. Backing up Windows or Mac data to the TS-332X is also effortless by using QNAP's NetBak Replicator utility or Apple's Time Machine.

Surveillance Solution

QNAP's QVR Pro surveillance solution allows you to arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the TS-332X and leverage the advantages of storage manageability from QTS. With QVR Pro, camera management, storage space allocation, camera live view, and playback is greatly simplified. You can also use the QVR Pro Client mobile app to monitor your cameras from anywhere, or use USB webcams as ONVIF network cameras with the QUSBCam2 app.

Expand Storage Capacity Using Other QNAP NAS with Virtual JBOD

QNAP VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) is network-based JBOD, allowing you to expand the storage capacity of your QNAP NAS with unused storage space from other QNAP NAS devices. The unused storage capacity of the TS-332X can be mounted as local disks of other NAS, and you can create virtual storage pools and volumes for operating NAS services to maximize storage utilization.
