QNAP Releases 9 Bay TS-932X NAS with DDual 10GbE SFP+ Ports


QNAP Systems a leader in home and professional storage technology today released the 10GbE-ready quad-core TS-932X, a budget-friendly NAS designed to accommodate five 3.5-inch hard drives and four 2.5-inch SSDs. It is an ARM-based NAS that supports Qtier technology, which automatically tiers files and data based on access frequency to provide optimal storage performance. Taking up less desktop space compared with other models in the same class, the slim TS-932X is ideal for small/medium businesses and small offices. The native dual 10GbE SFP+ ports also provide users with a NAS that is future-proofed for 10GbE network environments.

QNAP Continues to Update Their NAS lineup

The TS-932X uses an AnnapurnaLabs, an Amazon company Alpine AL-324 quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A57 processor, which should be enough depending on the workloads. It also features 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, providing compatibility with high-speed networks to empower large-data applications, fast backup/restoration, and virtualization. The effective airflow and thermal design dissipates heat efficiently, which should mitigate throttling and extend longevity of the hardware.

"The TS-932X is a 9-bay NAS that is the physical size of a standard 4-bay/6-bay NAS and strikes a balance between storage capacity and performance, coupled with the advanced Qtier technology and 10GbE support, it provides a highly cost-efficient private cloud NAS solution."

Dan Lin, Product Manager of QNAP

The QTS NAS operating system should simplify NAS management with greater flexibility and efficiency. Block-based snapshots enable comprehensive data protection and instant restoration, a very easy way to effectively mitigate the threat of ransomware. As an all-in-one NAS solution for file storage, backup, sharing, synchronization and centralized management, the TS-932X is a productivity boost for daily tasks. Users can install various apps from the QNAP App Center to extend NAS functionalities, such as Container Station for LXC and Docker containerized applications, Qfiling for automatic file organization, QmailAgent to centralize email account management, and QVR Pro to create a professional video surveillance system.
