30% of QNAP users choose RAID 5 arrays for their NAS to provide higher data protection, better system performance and optimized storage utilization. The 3-bay TS-332X not only allows you to build a RAID 5 array on your NAS with the fewest disks, but also features a 10GbE SFP+ port and three M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSD slots to enable higher performance for tackling performance-demanding operations. Featuring a minimalist design, the affordable 10GbE-ready TS-332X can easily fit your commercial space.

Quad-core CPU and 10GbE SFP+ port
The TS-332X is equipped with an AnnapurnaLabs, an Amazon company Alpine AL-324 quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A57 processor (64-bit) with 2GB/4GB DDR4 RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and provides three SATA 6Gb/s drive bays. When processing AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, the TS-332X also provides unmatched encryption performance while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the NAS. Alongside a pair of Gigabit LAN ports, the TS-332X features a 10GbE SFP+ port to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks, delivering a major speed increase for large-data applications, fast data transfer, backup & restoration, and containerized applications.

M.2 SSDs for cache acceleration or efficient tiered storage
The TS-332X features SSD caching, and also supports up to three SATA 6Gb/s M.2 SSDs with 2280 form factors (sold separately). You can set up a high-capacity SSD cache for boosting IOPS-demanding applications or create a RAID 5 tiered storage with balanced performance and redundancy protection. Qtier™ technology empowers the TS-332X with auto tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across M.2 SSDs, 2.5-inch SSDs, and high-capacity HDDs with around-the-clock acceleration. The new Qtier™ 2.0 features IO-awareness that empowers SSD-tiered storage with a cache-like reserved space to handle burst I/O in real time, greatly maximizing the advantages of SSD.

Enjoy optimized SSD performance with extra over-provisioning
With SSD prices continuing to become more affordable for home and small business users, there's never been a better time for using SSDs in your NAS to enjoy higher performance, faster file backups, smoother multimedia experiences, and optimized virtualization applications. The latest QTS 4.3.5 takes SSD functionality even further by supporting software-defined SSD RAID extra over-provisioning (OP) that enables you to allocate additional OP space from 1% to 60%, beneficial for optimal SSD random write speeds and extended lifespan with higher endurance. Now you can use affordable consumer SSDs for the TS-332X, adjust the SSD OP, and potentially attain performance and endurance levels similar to enterprise-grade SSDs.

Elegant appearance, effective airflow
The TS-332X sports a stylish and elegant look with an industrial design concept to provide effective airflow and better cooling, ensuring smooth performance even under the heaviest loads. The tool-less 3.5-inch hard drive installation allows easier system setup and maintenance, while the front-panel LEDs assist in viewing system status.

Snapshots protect your data against ransomware
Essential for NAS data protection, snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and metadata. You can use Storage & Snapshots Manager or File Station to easily manage snapshots and quickly restore the system to its normal state if an error occurs. QNAP snapshots are block-based and only record the changed data. Not only does this save storage space but also reduces the time required to back up and restore data. The TS-332X with 4GB RAM can support up to 256 snapshots per NAS and 64 snapshots per volume/LUN.

Upgrade your IT environment with QNAP's fast and affordable 10GbE Switch!
QNAP's 10GbE/NBASE-T™ unmanaged switches allow you to instantly upgrade your network environment at a cost-effective price. With a 10GbE network you can enjoy blazing-fast transfer speeds, empower bandwidth-demanding tasks like virtualization, and enable simultaneous real-time access to large NAS-based files using multiple workstations (ideal for video editing and multimedia). QNAP also provides a 10GbE PCIe network expansion card for Windows®/Linux® PCs to take advantage of high-speed LAN environments.

Host container applications
With Container Station, you can enjoy both LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies. You can run Ubuntu®, Debian®, and Fedora® containers, download apps from the built-in Docker Hub®, easily import/export container apps and manage access controls, and rapidly deploy application services across several platforms including the cloud, servers, and PCs.

Optimized collaboration with seamless file sharing and sync
The TS-332X centrally stores data and files, and supports SMB/CIFS, AFP and NFS protocols for file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®/UNIX® networks. Coupled with Qsync (a utility that turns a QNAP NAS into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization) any file uploaded to the TS-332X will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops and mobile devices. You can sync shared folders and team folders for group file sharing to enhance the flexibility of team projects and collaboration. Files can be centrally managed using File Station, including files from mobile devices and optical disc drives. File Station also allows you to mount a remote NAS, and transfer files between your NAS and public cloud services for greater convenience.

Well-round, multi-point backup
Hybrid Backup Sync provides a reliable, flexible backup & disaster recovery solution to help organizations in routine backup jobs with cost-efficiency and high productivity. It centralizes backup, restore and synchronization for you to easily transfer your data in the TS-332X to other QNAP NAS, remote server, USB storage (one touch copy) or cloud storage. Backing up Windows® or Mac® data to the TS-332X is also effortless by using QNAP’s NetBak Replicator utility or Apple’s Time Machine®.

Your NAS is also a surveillance solution
QNAP’s new QVR Pro surveillance solution allows you to arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the TS-332X and leverage the advantages of storage manageability from QTS. With QVR Pro, camera management, storage space allocation, camera live view and playback is greatly simplified. You can also use the QVR Pro Client mobile app to monitor your cameras from anywhere, or use USB webcams as ONVIF network cameras with the QUSBCam2 app.

Expand storage capacity using other QNAP NAS with Virtual JBOD
QNAP VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) is network-based JBOD, allowing you to expand the storage capacity of your QNAP NAS with unused storage space from other QNAP NAS. The unused storage capacity of the TS-332X can be mounted as local disks of other NAS, and you can create virtual storage pools and volumes for operating NAS services to maximize storage utilization.
