Disaster recovery solutions bring peace of mind

The TS-831X offers various data recovery options. RTRR (Real-Time Remote Replication) supports real time or scheduled data backup to a remote QNAP NAS or FTP server and synchronizes files to a remote folder from a local folder with better backup efficiency. You can enjoy backup versioning to preserve a certain amount of versions, with options of simple versioning to schedule how many versions should be retained and for how long, or smart versioning with a rotation scheme that automatically replaces earlier backup versions. The TS-831X also supports the rsync protocol to back up data to another remote server on a scheduled basis. Data can also be backed up to and restored from a range of cloud storage services, including Amazon® S3, Amazon® Glacier, Microsoft® Azure, ElephantDrive®, Dropbox®, Google Drive™, Google Cloud Storage™, and more.

Disaster recovery solutions


Comprehensive security options

In open network environments, business data may be exposed in a potential hack. The TS-831X provides numerous security options, such as 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-831X 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.

Security


Secure access with VPN Server & VPN Client

The TS-831X can be used as a VPN server with L2TP/IPsec, OpenVPN, and PPTP support, allowing you to securely access data shared within the private local network. 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 network through for PPTP and OpenVPN for secure data transmission. You can connect your 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.

VPN Server


Qsirch - A smarter, faster way to search

The TS-831X supports Qsirch, a search tool for quick file searching. Qsirch supports thumbnail previews, and even remembers your search history allowing you to quickly navigate to files you've previously searched for.

It is also a centralized location for managing & updating installed apps. You can freely install apps as needed to expand your TS-831X's functionality.

App Center


Expand storage capacity easily

The TS-831X supports online capacity expansion by connecting two QNAP expansion enclosures for storing rapidly-growing data, especially ideal for storage-intensive applications such as video surveillance, data archiving, TV broadcast storage, and more. You can gradually expand the TS-831X's storage on demand, and use the QTS Storage Manager to easily handle the NAS capacity expansion and storage expansion enclosure management.

With the support of QJBOD Express (JBOD enclosures roaming)*, you can just connect a large capacity QNAP expansion enclosure to the TS-831X, and migrate data to another NAS through the JBOD enclosure without network connectivity.

The maximum raw storage capacity available by connecting QNAP expansion enclosures:

QNAP NAS Model RAID Expansion Enclosure No. of RAID Expansion Enclosure Total HDD No. (NAS + Enclosure) Max. Raw Capacity (TB)**
TS-831X UX-800P 2 24 192
1 16 128
UX-500P 2 18 144
1 13 104
*RAID groups of storage pools cannot cross multiple enclosures.
**The maximum capacity is calculated by using 8TB HDDs.

Qsync

Qsync

Synchronize files anytime, anywhere

Qsync is a useful tool to synchronize files in multiple computers. It creates a specific “Qsync folder” in your devices that you can simply drop files in, and synchronizes the files to all your devices linked to the Turbo NAS.

Sync in multiple ways

Full Sync

Whenever you add, edit, delete or rename a file on one computer, the change applies to all others linked with the Turbo NAS, so you have exactly identical contents on all your devices.

Full Sync
Smart Sync

Smart Sync

It allows you to remove files on one computer without affecting the copies stored on others that are linked with the Turbo NAS. However, when someone updates the files you deleted from another computer, you can still retrieve them in the Qsync folder.

Advanced Selective Sync

With both Full Sync or Smart Sync options, you can choose to only sync specific sub-folders within the Qsync folder, useful if your computers have limited storage.

Advanced Selective Sync
Share files and folders easily

Share files and folders easily

Quickly share files with download links

You can create download links to share files with people, even if they don’t have an account on the Turbo NAS. This greatly reduces the time in creating user account and password for users.

Share folders for collaboration

Your life is connected with different groups of people. You can create sub-folders within the Qsync folder, and share each with different groups of Turbo NAS users as a file exchange center. Everyone in the same sub-folder is always kept up-to-date with the latest version of the files.


QNAP NetBak Replicator

Backup data on PC

The QNAP NetBak Replicator, provided with any Turbo NAS unit free of charge, helps you easily back up files from Windows PC - entire disk drives, documents, pictures, music, videos, fonts, emails, and more - to the Turbo NAS. The operation is very simple. You can do the backup task in just a few clicks using NetBak Replicator by the setting of real-time synchronization, scheduled backup and auto-backup from multiple PCs to the Turbo NAS.

NetBak Replicator also supports backing up to a remote server via FTP and WebDAV through the Internet. Imagine that you can backup new photos whenever on vacation. Even you are away from home, the convenient backup supports your memories.

vSphere (Web) Client plug-in

Manage QNAP NAS within vSphere (Web) Client

The Turbo NAS supports vSphere (Web) Client Plug-in that allows managing VMware datastores on the Turbo NAS directly from the vSphere (Web) client console. In a large-scale server virtualization environment, management is centralized and straightforward. Administrators can easily control the status of the Turbo NAS and datastores and create additional datastores to multiple ESXi hosts in just a few clicks.

Note: The TS-x51 series doesn’t support vSphere (Web) Client plug-in.

QNAP Snapshot Agent

QNAP Snapshot Agent

In QTS 4.2, the Storage Manager's Snapshot function supports iSCSI LUNs to rapidly back up and restore data. When creating a LUN snapshot, QNAP Snapshot Agent for Windows Server or VMware vCenter allows the NAS to communicate with the remote server when taking snapshots and ensures Application-consistent LUN snapshots.

VSS Hardware Provider also allows NAS ROW (Redirect on Write) instead of Windows COW (Copy on Write) to increase backup efficiency and to offload the snapshot to the NAS for reducing the performance impact on the Windows server.
