By supporting up to 8GB memory, users can also run a wide range of containerized apps on the TS-431X3, ensuring a highly cost-effective solution for business IT environments,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP.

The TS-431X3 supports snapshot technology and the HBS app facilitates backup to local, off-site and cloud storage, allowing users to develop a well-rounded disaster recovery plan. Notification Center allows administrators to centrally manage and monitor system and app event notifications from a single app, while Security Counselor recommends actions and settings to improve NAS security.

Also included with the TS-431X3 are: Surveillance Station allows for building a secure surveillance system; Qsync automatically synchronizes files between NAS, mobile devices and computers; QmailAgent enables centralized management of multiple email accounts; Qfiling automates file organization; and Qsirch quickly finds needed files.
