  • HBS backs up and synchronises NAS data to remote servers or cloud storage, while QuDedup deduplicates data at the source to optimise bandwidth and storage utilisation
  • Snapshots fully record the system status and data. If files are accidentally deleted or modified, they can be quickly restored to previously-recorded states
  • Supports LXC and Docker containers for rapidly deploying application services acorss various platforms
  • File Station centralises NAS and cloud-based files for easy access. Files can also be easily encrypted to protect sensitive data

build a faster home network with qnap

The TS-231P3 includes a 1GbE port and a 2.5GbE port to provide a smoother NAS experience and multimedia playback. Additional network connection options from QNAP include USB 3.2 Gen 1 to 5GbE adapters (supports N-BASET/Multi-Gig), QXG 5GbE PCIe cards, and QNAP QSW 10GbE switches. All these options allow users to revolutionize their home network at a cost-effective price. The TS-231P3 features three USB 3.2 Gen 1 port that delivers outstanding multitasking performance.


easy and secure file management

File Station allows direct management of files stored on the TS-231P3 and in the cloud. Users can easily upload files from their PC, drag/drop files between folders, rename/delete files, and configure file/folder permissions to prevent unauthorized access. Users can also use Microsoft Office Online to directly view/edit Microsoft Office documents stored on the TS-231P3. Confidential/sensitive data can also be encrypted to add extra security.


multi-point file backup, access, and sync

The TS-231P3 supports file sharing protocols (including SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS) for Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® devices. Coupled with Qsync (a utility that transforms a QNAP NAS into a secure, high-capacity data center for file synchronization) any file uploaded to the TS-231P3 becomes available for all linked devices (such as computers, laptops, and mobile devices). Hybrid Backup Sync helps backup/synchronize data on the TS-231P3 to another QNAP NAS, remote server, or cloud storage for disaster recovery. Additionally, QuDedup technology greatly improves the efficiency of multi-version backup to destination storage, while optimizing storage utilization. You can install the QuDedup Extract Tool on your computer and restore deduplicated files to their normal status.

protect important data with snapshots

Snapshots help protect data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. With snapshots, users can quickly restore files to previously-recorded states if files are accidentally deleted or modified, or if the system is compromised by malware. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record modified data. Not only does this save storage space, but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data.

  • NAS security portal - Security Counselor checks for weaknesses and offers recommendations for users to protect their TS-231P3. It also integrated anti-virus and anti-malware software to ensure comprehensive data protection
