- SSD cache acceleration
The TS-531X supports SSD caching to greatly boost the IOPS performance of storage volumes and increase operational efficiency. It is perfect for improving the overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs.
- VJBOD: maximize storage utilization across multiple QNAP NAS
Besides using 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-531X offers great potential for economically expanding the storage of other QNAP NAS with VJBOD, and to create virtual storage pools and volumes on virtual disks for operating NAS services.
- Rapidly deploy IoT apps with container station
QNAP Container Station exclusively integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux systems on the TS-531X 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 for "IoT" in Container Station, acquire proper containers, and create your diverse IoT applications.
- QmailAgent: a mailroom center for your private cloud
QmailAgent is an online email client that helps you manage multiple email accounts, allowing you to access all of your emails and to easily switch between different accounts. It provides complete functionality for composing, reading and organizing emails. You can even attach files, photos and documents directly from the TS-531X when composing emails. iOS and Android users can use the QmailClient app to quickly check multiple email accounts with mobile devices, and to browse & send emails using the QmailAgent on their TS-531X. You can use QmailAgent together with Qsirch, which supports searching through the .eml files stored on the TS-531X, to make searching through and managing massive amounts of emails much easier.
- Qcontactz: easily manage huge amounts of contacts on the NAS
Qcontactz is a dedicated app for centrally storing and managing contact information for colleagues, business partners, family, and more. A near-limitless number of contacts can be stored on the TS-531X, with the ability to sort them into groups and to encrypt sensitive/confidential contact information. Qcontactz supports manually adding contact information and importing from multiple Google accounts, CSV files, and vCARD 3.0 files. Qcontactz can also export contacts as CSV or vCARD 3.0 files. Important and frequently-used contacts are also automatically learned by Qcontactz for greater organization, and a smart search function is provided. Qcontactz offers snapshot backups that enable you to revert to a previous version of your contacts list according to your needs. A companion app for iPhone and Android phones is also available for transferring contacts from your phone to your NAS and to remotely access all of the your contacts stored on the NAS.
- QTS - simple and efficient
Thanks to the intuitive QTS user interface, your NAS experience is smarter, smoother and spectacular. Its modern flat design streamlines loading times, and the intelligent desktop allows you to quickly find desired functions, 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.
- Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage
The TS-531X supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, Linux /UNIX networks. Data, logs and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the TS-531X and protected by an integrated antivirus solution. The Windows AD and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using an existing Windows AD server, LDAP server or built-in LDAP service. The TS-531X supports SAMBA v4 and can act as a Windows domain controller to manage privilege settings.
- Secure access with VPN Server & VPN Client
The TS-531X can be used as a VPN server with L2TP/IPsec, OpenVPN, and PPTP support, allowing you to securely access data shared within private local networks. 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 networks through PPTP and OpenVPN for secure data transmission. You can connect 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.
- Qsirch - a smarter, faster way to search
The TS-531X supports Qsirch, a proprietary search engine for quick file searching. In addition to previewing files with thumbnails, content abstract and keyword hints, Qsirch allows you to search through .eml files stored on the TS-531X and to use customized search criteria such as date, size, sender and recipient. Qsirch even remembers your search history allowing you to quickly navigate to files you've previously searched for. The Qsirch Helper extension (for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox) can also be used to search for files on your NAS when using Google Search . Qsirch is a huge productivity boost that greatly reduces the time spent looking for files on the NAS, allowing you to focus on other tasks.
