Product Description

QNAP TS-431XeU-2G 12TB (4 x 3TB) WD Red 4 Bay Rack NAS Enclosure with 2GB RAM

The high-performance quad-core short depth TS-431XeU includes a 10GbE SFP+ port to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks at a budget price with maximized ROI. The short depth design is perfectly suitable for installing the TS-431XeU in a compact rack, or places with a lot of cabling. The TS-431XeU provides versatile all-in-one functionality and unique features including VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) - an economical way to utilize unused NAS storage space for expanding the storage capacity of other QNAP NAS - and Container Station - that allows users to rapidly develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) apps. The TS-431XeU is a cost-effective storage solution designed for growing businesses looking for backup, restoration, private cloud, storage for virtualization, and to future-proof their IT infrastructure for 10GbE networks.

Quad-core CPU and built-in one 10GbE SFP+ port

The TS-431XeU is equipped with an Annapurna Labs, an Amazon company, Alpine AL314 quad-core 1.7 GHz ARM Cortex-A15 processor with SATA 6Gb/s and up to 8GB DDR3 RAM. Its encryption acceleration engine provides unmatched encryption performance in its class with AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, boosting system performance & security while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the TS-431XeU. Besides two Gigabit Ethernet ports, the TS-431XeU also includes a 10GbE SFP+ port to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks for businesses that demand higher bandwidth for virtualization and fast backup & restoration of an ever-growing amount of data.

SSD cache acceleration

The TS-431XeU supports SSD caching to greatly boost the IOPS performance of storage volumes to 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.

Reduce the impact of ransomware or system failure with Snapshots

The TS-431XeU supports snapshots, which can record the system status and data at any single moment*. If the system unexpectedly fails or is infected with ransomware, you can instantly restore files from a snapshot. The intuitive snapshot tool in the QTS Storage Manager can be used to take snapshots of your data, and restore data from snapshots if necessary. Always take regular snapshots to ensure the safety of your files and data.

* For a single volume/LUN, up to 64 versions are supported. For the whole NAS, up to 256 versions are supported. Snapshot support will be added to the TS-431XeU in the upcoming QTS 4.3.4.

High reliability design ensuring business continuity

The business-ready TS-431XeU is designed to provide 24/7 operations and services. The support for comprehensive RAID configurations and hot-swapping allow for replacing hard drives without service interruption. QNAP's advanced RAID recovery technology also helps if any healthy drives are accidentally removed from a degraded RAID volume. The system can be recovered by reinserting the wrongly-removed hard drives so the data can still be accessible. The TS-431XeU delivers high reliability and efficiency with support for multiple port-trunking modes including fail-over support.

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-431XeU as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry for unlimited containerized applications. What's better, Container Station supports the QIoT Containers platform that helps quickly structure your IoT environment and deployment on your private IoT cloud, boosting microservices and modernizing legacy applications to drive more business opportunities.
