Upgrade your IT environment with QNAP’s fast and affordable 10GbE Switch!
QNAP 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
Container Station integrates LXC and Docker® lightweight virtualization technologies. You can download apps from the built-in Docker Hub® to easily import/export container apps and manage access controls, enjoying the benefit of easy installation, transferability and high-efficiency as well as rapidly deploying application services across several platforms including the cloud, servers, and PCs.
Optimized collaboration with seamless file sharing and sync
The TS-932X 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-932X 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.
Complete backup planning
The TS-932X provides a reliable, flexible backup & disaster recovery solution to assist organizations in routine backup jobs with cost-efficiency and high productivity.
Snapshots for Volume & LUN
Block-based snapshots are a dependable method for protecting data in the face of the growing threat of ransomware. Snapshots can be taken by schedule or manually and then backed up to other NAS/servers to provide an all-encompassing backup solution.
Windows and Mac backup
Use the free QNAP NetBak Replicator utility to back up/restore files from Windows® computers. Time Machine® is also supported for Mac® users. It is easy, fast and convenient.
Hybrid Backup Sync
Consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) for easily transferring data to local, remote and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan.
Whole new QVR Pro surveillance solution
QNAP’s new QVR Pro surveillance solution allows you to arrange a dedicated, independent storage space for surveillance data on the TS-932X 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 camera with the QUSBCam2 app.
*The maximum number of channels supported varies by NAS model, network configuration, and camera settings. For more information, visit https://www.qnap.com/go/qvr-nas-selector.

Flexible and economical storage expansion
You need an easy solution to increase storage capacity when running out of space. QNAP provides several ways to expand your NAS storage as needed to accommodate data and business growth.
Upgrade RAID Capacity
Hot swap lower-capacity drives with larger-capacity drives so that your QNAP NAS can grow with your business.
Migrate to a New NAS
Install your NAS hard drives into a larger QNAP NAS and retain all your existing data and configurations.
Attach Expansion Enclosures
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-932X 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.
Note: ARM-based NAS does not currently support the VJBOD “Host” function to utilize other NAS storage space.
