Quad-Core CPU And 10GbE SFP+ Port
The TS-332X is equipped with an AnnapurnaLabs, an Amazon company Alpine AL-324 quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A57 processor (64-bit) with 2GB/4GB DDR4 RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and provides three SATA 6Gb/s drive bays. When processing AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, the TS-332X also provides unmatched encryption performance while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the NAS. Alongside a pair of Gigabit LAN ports, the TS-332X features a 10GbE SFP+ port to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks, delivering a major speed increase for large-data applications, fast data transfer, backup & restoration, and containerized applications.
M.2 SSDs For Cache Acceleration Or Efficient Tiered Storage
The TS-332X features SSD caching, and also supports up to three SATA 6Gb/s M.2 SSDs with 2280 form factors (sold separately). You can set up a high-capacity SSD cache for boosting IOPS-demanding applications or create a RAID 5 tiered storage with balanced performance and redundancy protection. Qtier technology empowers the TS-332X with auto tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across M.2 SSDs, 2.5-inch SSDs, and high-capacity HDDs with around-the-clock acceleration. The new Qtier 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD-tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSD.
Enjoy Optimized SSD Performance With Extra Over-Provisioning
With SSD prices continuing to become more affordable for home and small business users, there's never been a better time for using SSDs in your NAS to enjoy higher performance, faster file backups, smoother multimedia experiences, and optimized virtualization applications. The latest QTS 4.3.5 takes SSD functionality even further by supporting software-defined SSD RAID extra over-provisioning (OP) that enables you to allocate additional OP space from 1% to 60%, beneficial for optimal SSD random write speeds and extended lifespan with higher endurance. Now you can use affordable consumer SSDs for the TS-332X, adjust the SSD OP, and potentially attain performance and endurance levels similar to enterprise-grade SSDs.
Elegant Appearance, Effective Airflow
The TS-332X sports a stylish and elegant look with an industrial design concept to provide effective airflow and better cooling, ensuring smooth performance even under the heaviest loads. The tool-less 3.5-inch hard drive installation allows easier system setup and maintenance, while the front-panel LEDs assist in viewing system status.
Snapshots Protect Your Data Against Ransomware
Essential for NAS data protection, snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. You can use Storage & Snapshots Manager or File Station to easily manage snapshots and quickly restore the system to its normal state if an error occurs. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record the changed data. Not only does this save storage space but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data. The TS-332X with 4GB RAM can support up to 256 snapshots per NAS and 64 snapshots per volume/LUN.
Host Container Applications
With Container Station, you can enjoy both LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies. You can run Ubuntu, Debian, and Fedora containers, download apps from the built-in Docker Hub, easily import/export container apps and manage access controls, and rapidly deploy application services across several platforms including the cloud, servers, and PCs.
Optimized Collaboration With Seamless File Sharing And Sync
The TS-332X centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux /UNIX networks. Coupled with Qsync (a utility that turns a QNAP NAS into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization) any file uploaded to the TS-332X will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. Files can be centrally managed using File Station, including files from mobile devices and optical disc drives. File Station also allows you to mount a remote NAS, and transfer files between your NAS and public cloud services for greater convenience.
