The TS-351 3-Bay NAS Enclosure from QNAP combines media center functionality with efficient auto-tired storage and RAID functionality to provide improved data protection, system performance, and storage utilization. With the ability to stream and share photos, music, and videos throughout your home and beyond using HDMI, the TS-351 and its minimalist design can fit into your workspace as a digital hub.
The TS-351 is powered by a 2.41 GHz Intel Celeron J1800 Dual-Core processor and 2GB DDR3L RAM, which can be upgraded to 8GB by using one 4GB module in each of the two SO-DIMM slots. Network connectivity is achieved using the Gigabit Ethernet port. This NAS also supports JBOD and a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, and 5, each of which offers data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both.
This 3-bay enclosure has the ability to natively house both 3.5" SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5" hard drives and SSDs using an adapter. Of the three 3.5" bays, two support SATA II 3 Gb/s and one supports SATA III 6 Gb/s. There are also two M.2 NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 slots for SSD caching and auto-tiering to help continually optimize storage efficiency across M.2 SSDs, 2.5" SATA SSDs, and high capacity HDDs. Non-encrypted read speeds can reach up to 113 MB/s and write speeds max out around 112 MB/s, while using encryption still delivers read speeds of up to 103 MB/s and write speeds of up to 89 MB/s. Using its one 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A port and two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, this QNAP NAS can be connected to other QNAP devices, as well as other external drives and peripherals. Additionally, the TS-351 is validated with FIPS 140-2 AES 256-bit encryption, helping to prevent sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breaches.
QNAP's TS-351 runs using a 65W power supply that operates using 100-240V. It is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, and UNIX. Included is an Ethernet cable, a power cord, an AC adapter, and two M.2 SSD heatsinks. Protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.
