Equipped with powerful yet energy efficient Freescale ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core 1.2GHz processor, the TS-231 is a high-performance home NAS providing incredible performance of up to 110MB/s read & 80MB/s write throughput. The TS-231’s enhanced encryption and decryption performance provides transfer speeds of over 30MB/s with AES-256 bit full NAS volume encryption, boosting system performance & security while ensuring the safety of sensitive personal data stored in the TS-231. You can also use the TS-231 as a home multimedia hub to enjoy your photo, music and videos while downloading or backing up files without impacting the TS-231’s performance. When installed with the latest 802.11ac or dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi USB adapter, the TS-231 can offer remarkably high speeds for transferring large amount of files and streaming bandwidth-consuming multimedia.
The TS-231 supports multiple port-trunking modes, enabling IT administrators to set up link aggregation to increase total data transmission capability. Failover and dual IP are also supported to ensure continuous system operations. The supported port-trunking modes include: Balance-rr (Round-Robin), Active Backup, Balance XOR, Broadcast, IEEE 802.3ad, Balance-tlb (Adaptive Transmit Load Balancing) and Balance-alb (Adaptive Load Balancing).
With offline transcoding, if you can only connect to a slow, limited or restricted Internet connection, you can still enjoy smooth video streaming by playing a version of the video with a pre-rendered, optimized resolution. By setting an automatic transcoding folder, the TS-231 will automatically convert the videos in this folder to a range of resolutions for use on many different devices and internet speeds. As this transcoding is a background task, you can schedule the TS-231 to work during off-peak hours such as when you are at work or asleep, allowing you to enjoy a perfect stream of your favorite videos when you’re off work or wake up.
You can use DLNA-compatible devices such as Smart TVs, Sony PS3, Microsoft Xbox 360 and media players to enjoy HD quality videos stored on the TS-231. You can also use the Qfile app on an iOS device to browse videos and photos stored on the TS-231 and play on the TV via Apple TV. By installing the QAirplay app from the QTS App Center, you can stream your media content directly on a TV via Apple TV. The media contents are streaming on Apple TV, bypassing your mobile device, thus saving the energy of your mobile device.
Notes Station provides a private & secure way to share and collaborate on digital notes. With just a few steps you can create notes from web pages (or by importing from the TS-231), edit notes with the intuitive web-based editor, and take screenshots for quick note-taking with Qsnap or the Notes Station Clipper extension for Chrome. You can also easily leverage the rich media contents stored on the TS-231 to enhance your notes, and access them on your mobile phones or tablet devices by using Qnotes mobile app anytime, anywhere.
With Qsync, your TS-231 is turned into a safe data center for file synchronization. Any file uploaded to the TS-231 will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. Qsync is especially useful for frequent travelers in managing files and ensuring that different devices have the most up-to-date files. Qsync provides multiple ways for file synchronization and group file sharing, greatly enhancing the flexibility of team projects and collaboration.
Equipped with an eSATA and three SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, the TS-231 allows you to flexibly arrange tasks with a wide range of external devices without interrupting your current workflow. You can back up files to USB drives & eSATA enclosures, access data stored on SD cards via USB card readers, share up to 3 printers via network, and connect to a UPS to ensure a continual power supply.
