HybridMount File-Based Cloud Gateway
Flexibly expand your storage capacity by connecting to cloud storage. You can leverage QTS apps to manage and edit your cloud files or monitor multimedia files. HybridMount is ideal for file server online collaboration and file-level data analysis.
VJBOD Cloud Block-Based Cloud Gateway
VJBOD Cloud supports backing up NAS data to block-based cloud storage. Block-based data transmission uploads random data and large files to the cloud in blocks, and only block-based volume or LUN changes are transmitted. This is ideal for backing up LUN, databases, and confidential files.
Flexibly expand storage capacity whenever needed
The storage capacity of the TS-1232PXU-RP can be easily expanded to meet growing data demands. Simply connect a QNAP TR RAID expansion enclosure or TL JBOD to expand storage space on demand. With QNAP's Virtual JBOD (VJBOD) technology, the unused space of the TS-1232PXU-RP can also be used to expand the storage space of other QNAP NAS.

Qnap 19"Rack NAS TS 1232PXU RP 16G reviews
What is the maximum storage TS-1232PXU-RP-16G NAS can handle?
24/10/2020 | Guest
It is better to ask SPAN for free compatibility checks. But as today you could fill it with 12X 18TB Seagate Ironwolf. This would give you a total raw storage of 216TB
Can I use any drives with this NAS?
23/10/2020 | Guest
Yes, but we would recommend to use WD Red or Seagate Ironwolf. They consume less energy and generate less vibration and noise.
Can I add a 2TB HDD and a 2nd one later with RAID1?
22/10/2020 | Guest
Yes, you can migrate from Basic single disk to RAID 1
Can I upgrade the RAM on this NAS?
21/10/2020 | Guest
Looking at the specs, this NAS should allow RAM upgrade. Ask SPAN.COM for free compatibility checks.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price for TS-1232PXU-RP-16G?Link to a TS-1232PXU-RP-16G review page Is this enclosure suitable for a SSD - such as Samsung EVO SATA III SSD
20/10/2020 | Guest
Yes, it will work with Samsung, WD or Seagate SSD. In fact this will improve the internal speed and make apps run faster.
