QNAP released the new TS-832X 8-bay quad-core NAS with two built-in 10GbE SFP ports. It is also an ARM-based NAS that supports Qtier technology for auto-tiering, and its PCIe slots allow for the installation of peripheral cards like 10GbE NICs, QM2 cards, USB 3.1 10Gbps expansion cards, or wireless network cards.
The TS-832X features an AnnapurnaLabs, an Amazon company Alpine AL-324 quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A57 processor with 2GB/8GB DDR4 RAM (upgradable to 16GB), and supports SSD caching and Qtier for optimizing storage performance and utilization. It comes with two 10GbE SFP+ ports to fulfill bandwidth-demanding tasks such as large-data applications, fast backup/restoration, and containerized applications.
The TS-832X includes two PCIe slots that allows greater system flexibility, making it ideal for organizations and professionals that require performance and expandability. Users can install a 10GbE network card to boost bandwidth-intensive workloads, a USB 3.1 Gen.2 (10Gbps) card for transferring large media files to/from USB storage, a PCIe wireless network card to use the NAS as a wireless base station, or a QNAP QM2 card to add M.2 SSDs to configure SSD caching (M.2 SSD sold separately). There are also QM2 cards that include 10GbE 10GBASE-T connectivity to provide SSD caching with high-speed network connectivity on a single card.
The intelligent QTS NAS operating system simplifies NAS management with greater flexibility and efficiency. Block-based snapshots enable comprehensive data protection and instant restoration, providing a suitable method for mitigating the threat of ransomware. As a multi-functional NAS solution for file storage, backup, sharing, synchronization and centralized management, the TS-832X is a productivity boost for daily tasks. Users can install various apps from the App Center to extend NAS functionalities, such as Container Station for LXC and Docker® containerized applications, Qfiling for automatic file organization, and QVR Pro to create a professional video surveillance system.
The TS-832X can be expanded to accommodate growing data by connecting up to two QNAP expansion enclosures (UX-800P and UX-500P). Its unused storage capacity can also be used to expand the capacity of other QNAP NAS by using VJBOD (Virtual JBOD).
