TS-831XU

The powerful quad-core TS-831XU includes two 10GbE SFP+ ports to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks at a budget price with maximized ROI. The TS-831XU provides versatile all-in-one functionalities and unique features including VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) – an economical way to utilize unused NAS storage space for expanding the storage capacity of other QNAP NAS – and Container Station – that allows users to rapidly develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) apps. The TS-831XU is a cost-effective storage solution designed for growing businesses looking for backup, restoration, private cloud, storage for virtualization, and to future-proof their IT infrastructure for 10GbE networks.


• 10GbE readiness, SSD cache, and hardware-accelerated encryption engine
• VJBOD allows using the TS-831XU to expand the storage capacity of other QNAP NAS
• Containerized virtualization and IoT app development with Container Station
• Build a private cloud to centrally organize & manage files and backup tasks
• Secure access with VPN Server & VPN Client
• Quickly find files using a real-time, natural search with Qsirch
• Scalable design allowing the connection of two QNAP expansion enclosures (UX-1200U-RP) to increase the total storage capacity up to 32 drives

The TS-831XU supports SSD caching to greatly boost the IOPS performance of storage volumes to increase operational efficiency. It is perfect for improving the overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs. Besides two inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports, the TS-831XU also includes two 10GbE SFP+ ports to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks for businesses that demand higher bandwidth for virtualization and fast backup & restoration for an ever-growing amount of data. The extra PCIe slot allows for the installation of a 10GbE SFP+ NIC for flexible high-speed network deployment.

The business-ready TS-831XU is designed to provide 24/7 operations and services. The support for comprehensive RAID configurations and hot-swapping allow for replacing hard drives without service interruption. QNAP’s advanced RAID recovery technology also helps if any healthy drives are accidentally removed from a degraded RAID volume. The system can be recovered by reinserting the wrongly-removed hard drives so the data can still be accessible. The TS-831XU delivers high reliability and efficiency with support for multiple port-trunking modes including fail-over support.

Besides using expansion enclosures, there is an additional option to expand NAS storage capacity. QNAP VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) is network-based JBOD, allowing you to expand the storage of a QNAP NAS with multiple QNAP NAS units. The TS-831XU offers great potential for economically expanding the storage of other QNAP NAS with VJBOD, and to create virtual storage pools and volumes on virtual disks for operating NAS services.
