QNAP releases a new personal/home multi-bay NAS server
In these days of ever-lengthening self-isolation, many households may benefit from its own data-storage set-up with options on a private cloud into the bargain - as may the individuals within them, for that matter. QNAP claims that its new TS-x31K series offers just such a solution.
These new NAS models are finished in the same white and muted blue housing that "blends in with any home décor and takes up very little space" and supports tool-less drive installation. Inside, it packs a new Alpine AL-214 1.7GHz quad-core processor developed by Annapurna Labs for "excellence" in its use-case. This chip is paired with 1GB of RAM.
The TS-x31K series allows for a Gigabit LAN via the requisite Ethernet port. 1 of these is found on the new line's 1-bay variant (the TS-131K), whereas the 2- and 4-bay SKUs (the TS-231K and TS-431K respectively) have 2 each.
