Fast Disaster Recovery with Snapshots
The TS-431P supports block-based Snapshots, which can record and save the state of the file system and the metadata of the files outside the file system at any time. In the event of an unexpected NAS failure or if struck by a ransomware attack, the snapshots remain intact, allowing you to quickly and easily restore the system back to a previous normal state. You can preserve and restore multiple versions of the same file, folder or even the entire volume. The TS-431P supports up to 64 snapshots per volume or LUN (up to 256 in total). Snapshot Replica facilitates double protection that replicates snapshots to a remote QNAP NAS or server.
Note: The Snapshots feature will be available from QTS 4.3.4.
Cross-platform file sharing, centralised data storage
The TS-431P supports SMB/CIFS, NFS, and AFP protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, Linux®/UNIX® networks. Data, logs and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the TS-431P.
Well-rounded backup & disaster recovery solution
The TS-431P is a comprehensive centralised backup centre for multiple files. The front panel USB port features a one-touch-copy function for you to instantly back up data on USB drives to the TS-431P or alternatively to back up data from the TS-431P to USB drives. You can use QNAP NetBak Replicator to back up files on Windows® (including Outlook® email archiving) to the TS-431P, or use Time Machine® for Mac® data backup. A wide range of third-party backup software (such as Acronis® True Image™ and Symantec Backup Exec™) are also supported to facilitate system backup and restoration.
Disaster recovery solutions bring peace of mind
