Energy-efficient quad-core processor and encryption engine
TS-431X2 offers a full range of NAS solutions with one built-in 10GbE SFP+ network port and 2GB/8GB DDR3 memory options (expandable up to 8GB). TS-431X2 features a low-power, high-performance Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-314 quad-core 1.7 GHz processor, which boosts read performance by approximately 15% compared with the AL-212 dual-core processor. The encryption engine of TS-431X2, with performance enhancements from the previous series, provides remarkable data access speeds when using AES-256-bit encryption, maintaining high system efficiency while protecting sensitive documents.

SSD caching
TS-431X2 supports SSD caching by all drives to enhance IOPS performance and accelerate disk access, increasing system operation efficiency. It is especially suitable for applications that require high IOPS performance. By combining SSDs and HDDs, system performance is increased in a cost-efficient manner.

The moment to adopt 10GbE high-speed networking has arrived
10GbE enables various data-intensive applications and helps businesses to meet the increasing demands for bandwidthintensive file transmission and backup tasks. However, 10GbE networking, while providing high transfer rates, used to involve expensive and limited choices of networking hardware. As the 10GbE high-speed connectivity continues to evolve and the technology to accommodate bandwidth-heavy tasks has matured, the hardware prices have significantly gone down, creating an excellent opportunity for SMBs to adopt high performance networks at lower costs.

Rapidly deploy IoT applications with Container Station
QNAP Container Station features two lightweight virtualization technologies: LXC and Docker®. You can run a full Linux® virtual machine on TS-431X2 and download thousands of applications from the Docker Hub® online marketplace. It is the best private cloud platform for developers to easily deploy IoT applications.

Qfiling - Simplified file organization
Qfiling automates your file organization. All you need to do is categorize your files, set a schedule, and Qfiling will do the rest. After setting up Qfiling, the files in selected folders will be automatically archived into folders for these categories. Qfiling also offers different conditions for different file types, including document assistant, music guru and video wizard, so you can quickly complete archiving tasks through customized archiving conditions

Easily sync files with Qsync Central Station
With Qsync, all of the files uploaded to a TS-431X2 can be synced with other computers and mobile devices. Qsync is a great tool for those who are frequently away from their NAS to access up-to-date files and data.
