Budget-friendly 10GbE NAS: A 3-bay NAS with three M.2 SSD slots, supporting RAID 5 for balancing capacity, performance, and protection
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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®.

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.
Note: ARM-based NAS do not currently support the VJBOD "Host" function to utilize the storage space of other NAS.
