QNAP launches the new TS-x31P NAS for Homes and Small Offices
The Taiwan based NAS manufacturer has released the newest version of its Home and Small Office series – the TS-x31P. The device comes in 1, 2 and 4 bay variants and features an Alpine AL-212 Dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, and three USB3 ports. IT supports SATA 6GB/s Hard drives as well as SSDs, and supports AED 256-Bit NAS Volume Encryption.
Of course, the star of the show is the OS that powers the entire QNAP Lineup – QTS. The operating system allows users to turn the device from just a network drive into a full-fledged server of sorts. Capabilities such as Photo Station, Music Station, Video stations allow users to store and share these media files across their entire network as well as access them on their mobile phones when traveling. The OS also features built-in apps and clients for automatic and incremental backup for Windows, Mac and Mobile Devices. The NAS can then back the content to any cloud service including Google Drive, Microsoft One Drive, Amazon Drive, and more.
The new features of the OS include Qmail Agent, allowing users to manage and backup their email from multiple mail providers; QContactz, allowing users to backup their contacts from multiple devices; and Virtual JBOD to extend the storage on their devices with access to unused capacity on other NAS devices.
