QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences and incorporates advanced features.alt

Secure access with VPN & Proxy Server

The new QVPN app integrates settings for VPN server and VPN client, and allows the TS-431X to 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.alt

Optimized collaboration with cross-platform file sharing and sync

The TS-431X centrally stores data, logs and various files, and supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, 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-431X will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops or mobile devices. You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing, greatly enhancing the flexibility of team projects and collaboration.alt

Well-rounded backup & disaster recovery solutions

The TS-431X offers flexible backup solutions for Windows® and Mac® users. It also supports Hybrid Backup Sync that consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) for easily transferring data to local, remote and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan. Supported cloud services include Amazon® Glacier, Azure™ Storage, Google Cloud Storage™, Google Drive™, Microsoft® OneDrive® for Business, Dropbox®, Amazon® Drive, Yandex® Disk, Box®, hubiC® and Amazon® S3/OpenStack Swift/WebDAV compatible services.alt

Comprehensive security to protect your data

In open network environments, business data may be exposed in a potential hack. The TS-431X provides numerous security options, such as antivirus, encrypted access, IP blocking, 2-step verification, and more. IT administrators can also control the access rights of each user to different folders, preventing unauthorized access to important files. The TS-431X supports AES 256-bit encryption, preventing sensitive business data from unauthorized access and breach even if the hard drives or the entire system were stolen. Windows AD server, LDAP server, and built-in LDAP service are also supported.

Comprehensive surveillance solution providing 24/7 security

Surveillance Station is a professional network surveillance Video Management System (VMS) that offers a user-friendly management interface, over 3,000 compatible IP camera models, and expandable IP camera channel licenses. It supports real-time monitoring, video & audio recording and playback with a wide range of customizable settings. You can use iOS® or Android™ Vmobile app to manage the monitored channels anytime and anywhere to safeguard your office environment, or install the Vcam mobile app to turn your device into a network camera to instantly record to your TS-431X. The TS-431X offers 2 free IP camera channels and you can expand up to 30 channels by purchasing additional licenses.alt

Use NAS to expand other NAS capacity with VJBOD

Besides using physical storage 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-431X supports VJBOD to economically expand the storage capacity of other QNAP NAS with its unused storage, and you can simply create virtual storage pools and volumes on the virtual disks for operating NAS services.
Please note:
1. ARM-based NAS currently does not support VJBOD "Host" function to utilize other NAS storage space.
2. The remote QNAP NAS must support iSCSI and Storage Pools and use QTS 4.2.1 (or later).alt
