The extra PCIe slot allows for the installation of a third 10 GbE port for flexible high-speed network deployment. Coupled with its large storage capacity potential, the 10GbE-ready TS-831X is perfect for companies to store massive amounts of data and excel in fast data transmission.
- SSD cache acceleration
The TS-831X supports SSD caching which can greatly boost IOPS performance of storage volumes to increase operational efficiency. It is perfect for improving the overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications and allows both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs.
- VJBOD: use NAS to expand other NAS capacity for maximizing sharing economy
Besides using physical storage expansion enclosures, there is an additional option to expand NAS storage capacity. QNAP VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) is network-based JBOD, allowing you to expand the storage of a QNAP NAS with multiple QNAP NAS units. The TS-831X offers a high potential capacity for you to economically expand other QNAP NAS storage with VJBOD, and to create virtual storage pools and volumes on the virtual disks for operating NAS services.
- Rapidly deploy IoT apps with Container Station
QNAP Container Station integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux systems on the TS-831X as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry. It supports container import/export and permission settings, and features an informative dashboard and flexible user interface for you to manage multiple containers. What's more, Container Station provides an ideal platform with countless hands-on containerized apps for developers to easily apply, rapidly develop, and conveniently deploy IoT applications. Simply search "IoT" in Container Station, acquire proper containers, and create your diverse IoT applications.
- QTS - simple and efficient
Thanks to the intuitive user interface of QTS, your NAS experience is smarter, smoother and spectacular. Its modern flat design streamlines loading times, and the intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences to you.
- Disaster recovery solutions bring peace of mind
The TS-831X offers various data recovery options. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real time or scheduled data backup to a remote QNAP NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files to a remote folder from a local folder with better backup efficiency. You can enjoy backup versioning to preserve a certain amount of versions, with options of simple versioning to schedule how many versions should be retained and for how long, or smart versioning with a rotation scheme that automatically replaces earlier backup versions. The TS-831X also supports the rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on a scheduled basis.
- Comprehensive security options
In open network environments, business data may be exposed in a potential hack. The TS-831X provides numerous security options, such as encrypted access, IP blocking, 2-step verification, and more. IT administrators can also control the access rights of each user to different folders, preventing unauthorized access to important files. The TS-831X supports AES 256-bit encryption, preventing sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breach even if the hard drives or the entire system were stolen.
- Secure access with VPN server & VPN client
The TS-831X can be used as a VPN server with L2TP/IPsec, OpenVPN, and PPTP support, allowing you to securely access data shared within the private local network. It can also be used as a VPN Client to connect to other VPN servers (connecting multiple servers at the same time is possible) or virtual private network through for PPTP and OpenVPN for secure data transmission. You can connect your devices to your NAS and the VPN server at home to access data on the LAN, via VPN Client on your NAS, for example, you can connect to VPN servers in foreign countries for accessing regionally-restricted services.
- File synchronization across multiple devices
Qsync utility turns your TS-831X into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization. Any file uploaded to the TS-831X will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops or mobile devices. Qsync is especially useful for frequent travelers to manage files and always have the most up-to-date files on different devices. Qsync provides multiple ways for file synchronization and group file sharing, greatly enhancing the flexibility of team projects and collaboration.
- Install-on-demand apps to extend NAS functionality
The built-in App Center provides various install-on-demand apps developed by QNAP and third-party developers, including tools for backup/sync, business, content management, communications, download, entertainment, and much more. It is also a centralized location for managing & updating installed apps. You can freely install apps as needed to expand your TS-831X's functionality.
- Expand storage capacity easily
The TS-831X supports online capacity expansion by connecting two QNAP expansion enclosures for storing rapidly-growing data, especially ideal for storage-intensive applications such as video surveillance, data archiving, TV broadcast storage, and more. You can gradually expand the TS-831X's storage on demand, and use the QTS Storage Manager to easily handle the NAS capacity expansion and storage expansion enclosure management.
