Dual-core processor delivers high performance

Equipped with an AnnapurnaLabs, an Amazon company Alpine AL-212 dual-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A15 processor and 1GB DDR3 RAM, the TS-231P is a high-performance NAS for home, workgroups and SOHO users providing outstanding performance of up to 224 MB/s read & 176 MB/s write throughput. The TS-231P's enhanced hardware-based encryption and decryption engine provides transfer speeds of over 179 MB/s with AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, boosting system performance & security while ensuring the safety of sensitive personal data stored in the NAS. When used with a compatible 802.11ac or dual-band 2.4GHz/5GHz 802.11n USB Wi-Fi adapter, the TS-231P becomes an ideal media center with remarkably high speeds for transferring a large amount of files and streaming bandwidth-intensive multimedia.


High Efficiency with dual LAN support

The TS-231P supports multiple port-trunking modes, enabling administrators to set up link aggregation to increase total data transmission potential. Failover and dual IP are also supported to ensure continuous system operations. 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).


QTS - Simple and efficient

Thanks to the intuitive user interface of QTS, your NAS experience is smarter, smoother and spectacular. Its modern flat design streamlines loading times, and the intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences to you.





Cross-platform file sharing, centralized data storage

The TS-231P 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-231P.



Manage your files via the Internet

File Station brings conventional desktop-style file operations to web browsers, allowing you to upload, download, and manage files on your TS-231P wherever there is an internet connection. Supporting file extraction, folder creation, and smart search for files and folders, File Station also allows you to easily share files via unique URLs protected with reliable security features, SSL and password options. You can even directly browse and transfer files between the TS-231P and public cloud services like Google Drive™, Dropbox®, Microsoft® OneDrive, Box®, Yandex® Disk and Amazon® Drive, open office files directly with a Google Chrome™ office extension, and also view your files on Google Docs™ or Office Online™.



A private cloud without constraints

In contrast to the limited storage space and potential security concerns of public cloud services, the TS-231P is advantageous for establishing a secure and large-capacity private cloud where you have full control over how your data is used and transmitted. The myQNAPcloud service allows remote access to files stored on the TS-231P, allowing you to play & share multimedia from the TS-231P or to conveniently check the system status from anywhere.

QNAP 231-P 2 bay NAS

7 April 2019
Had this for about a month now. The fan is only 70mm so goes twice the speed of the 120mm on in a 4 bay big brother. Fan noise not great ant under load the sound of the HD will be louder. Good range of apps. BAS's are more about the OS than the hardware. I find the interface slightly confusing to my my of thinking. Personal preference in action.

QNAP is working hard to improve the system, as updates to the OS appear on a regular basis. This version allows one to encrypt any volume as protection against theft of the NAS. Hard drive trays are removable with out having to disassemble the NAS

Overall a good piece of kit.

Good product but can be complex to set up.

10 January 2019
Difficult to assess this product. It can be quite complex to setup and the apps available whilst covering all that you want to do seem to me to be over complex. The Backup app for example does a good job once you wade through the complex settings. Quite easy to set up a Raid 0 array though and that seems to run without problems. The Sync app seems to work ok but again could be a lot simpler to get going. Overall I'm happy with the product though and would recommend it but prepare to need some tecnical expertise to make the most of it.

My First NAS

2 July 2018
Needed a small NAS unit for increased storage and thought I would try this one. Pretty straight forward to setup and is working great. Have only had a couple of weeks and no problems. Would recommend for a first time NAS.

Easy use, compact, quiet

17 May 2018
I love this thing, it's very easy to use / set up, I'd suggest reading the online manual to explain the different raid configurations and options though as it's not all self explanatory, The web interface, though intuitive, takes a bit of getting used to as well (where particular settings are kept).

Great Home NAS unit

26 February 2018
Very easy to setup and control.
Took about an hour to setup shares and permissions, once the storage was initialised.

Lots of 3rd party apps to make use much easier....
