Test System Setup
Our Consumer NAS test 'system' is setup similar to what you have at home. Here we have the base of an ASUS Z97 USB 3.1, housing an Intel Core i7 4770 with 16GB of Patriot Viper DDR3 supporting. Our Operating System of choice is Windows 10 Pro x64, with all available updates and patches installed on a Crucial MX200 500GB SSD.
The platform used in the TS-431+ is QTS 4.1 which carries many of the same features we have seen in past NAS units from QNAP. In the system settings section, we have options for managing storage along with monitoring the hardware and upgrading firmware. Network services included ranged from SMB, NFS and AFP along with FTP, SSH and Qsync.
Station manager allows access to backup scheduling, iTunes server and media server options such as transcoding.
myQNAPcloud is one of the pinnacle feature on any QNAP appliance as this allows you to build your own personal cloud to access your data anywhere in the world.
Qsync is another staple with QTS allowing seamless backups that are automated across all platforms.
