Slim size, big capacity. Quality & stylish.
You may be surprised with the size of the TS-932X, which is a 9-bay NAS with a similar appearance as a regular 4-bay/6-bay NAS. The TS-932X strikes a balance between storage capacity and performance, making it a perfect companion for small and medium organizations and small offices. Remarkable design details also include succinct LED indicators, a brushed-metal aluminum control panel, and a unique drive bay layout that efficiently streamlines the physical footprint of the NAS.
Quad-core CPU and dual 10GbE SFP+ ports
The TS-932X is equipped with an AnnapurnaLabs, an Amazon company Alpine AL-324 quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A57 processor with 2GB/8GB DDR4 RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and supports SATA 6Gb/s. When processing AES 256-bit full NAS volume encryption, the TS-932X also provides unmatched encryption performance while ensuring the safety of sensitive business data stored in the NAS. The TS-932X comes with a pair of 10GbE SFP+ ports to fully support 10GbE high-speed networks, delivering a major speed increase for virtualization tasks, fast backup & restoration, and large-data applications.
SSD caching and auto tiering enable optimized storage efficiency
The TS-932X provides four 2.5-inch bays for SSD caching to improve the workflow of random IOPS demanding applications. Qtier™ Technology empowers the TS-932X with automatic tiering that continuously optimizes storage utilization across high-performance SSD and high-capacity SATA drives. 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.
Snapshots – a modern way to protect data
Essential for NAS data protection, snapshots help protect your data by fully recording the NAS system state and the 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.
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.
QTS – The intelligent, intuitive and creative NAS operating system
With multiple modularized applications and functions, QTS enhances management efficiency, personal productivity, multimedia, and much more, making your NAS experience easier, efficient, and more flexible! The built-in App Center with hundreds of install-on-demand apps also opens up vast potential for extensive NAS functionality. The new Qboost provides a NAS optimization tool that helps accelerate applications, free up system resources, and schedule applications. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms, and geography to bring you advanced features and optimized cloud experiences.
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.
5,000+ compatible IP cameras
8 free IP camera channels
16 max. IP camera channels

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
Connect two UX-800P or UX-500 Expansion enclosures and use the Storage & Snapshots Manager to easily handle NAS capacity expansion.
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.
