QNAP Launches Quad-core TS-431KX NAS with 10GbE SFP+


QNAP Systems, Inc., today launched the quad-core 1.7 GHz TS-431KX NAS with 10GbE SFP+ connectivity. The TS-431KX provides high bandwidth for intensive data transmission, allowing SMB and startups to easily backup/restore and synchronize data without breaking their budget. The TS-431KX supports Snapshot technology and HBS (Hybrid Backup Sync) local, offsite and cloud backup that enable a well-rounded disaster recovery plan to ensure uninterrupted services.

The TS-431KX is powered by a quad-core 1.7 GHz processor, 2GB RAM (upgradable to 8 GB) with one 10GbE SFP+ and two 1GbE network ports. Coupled with a QNAP QSW series 10GbE/NBASE-T network switch, users can easily build a high-speed 10GbE network environment to achieve faster and streamlined workflows. Featuring tool-less and lockable drive bays, the TS-431KX makes installation easier while also ensuring the drives are safe and secure.

“The TS-431KX is a quad-core 10GbE NAS that is ideal for streamlining collaborative workflows in SMB IT environments. Not only can it facilitate centralized data storage, backup, sharing, and disaster recovery, but the TS-431KX can also be used as an IoT (Internet of Things) platform and run a wide range of productivity-boosting apps to enhance organizational performance,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP.

The TS-431KX’s Notification Center consolidates all QTS system events and alerts to provides users with a single-app notification solution. Security Counselor evaluates and recommends security settings to improve NAS security. HBS allows users to back up NAS data to another NAS or to cloud storage for an off-site copy to ensure higher data security. Snapshots are also supported to assist users in mitigating the threat of ransomware and accidental deletion/modification of files.

The built-in QTS App Center provides a wide range of useful applications: Surveillance Station allows for building a secure surveillance system; Qsync automatically synchronizes files between NAS, mobile devices and computers; Container Station allows importing or exporting LXC and Docker apps; QmailAgent enables centralized management of multiple email accounts; Qfiling automates file organization; and Qsirch quickly finds needed files. Users can also download companion mobile apps to remotely access their NAS to improve work efficiency.
