Product Description

The TS-531P 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). The TS-531P supports SSD caching which can greatly boost IOPS performance of storage volumes to increase operational efficiency. It is perfect for improving overall workflow of IOPS-demanding applications and allows the best of both cost and performance by combining SSDs with HDDs. QNAP Container Station exclusively integrates LXC and Docker lightweight virtualization technologies, allowing you to operate multiple isolated Linux systems on the TS-531P as well as download apps from the built-in Docker Hub Registry. It supports container import/export and permission settings, and features an informative dashboard and flexible user interface for you to manage multiple containers. You can experience the amazing Container Station and enjoy the playground of virtual containers with the TS-531P. Container Station also supports Online Document app, which allows you to directly view, edit and store files of various types anytime on your NAS, including Office documents, images and text files. TS-531P with 8GB RAM supports Qsirch, QNAP's unique, powerful, Google Search-like search tool that helps you find what you need on the NAS. You can quickly and easily find documents, photos, videos, and music. Simply type in as much as you know about what you are trying to find, including parts of the file name or even words/phrases in the document, and Qsirch will display a list of matches - complete with thumbnails - as you type. Qsirch even remembers your search history so you can quickly navigate to files you've previously searched for.
