Thanks to the intuitive user interface of QTS, your NAS experience is smarter, smoother and spectacular. Its modern flat design streamlines loading times, and the intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater working efficiency. QTS breaks the barriers of devices, platforms and geography to bring optimized cloud experiences to you.
The revamped Notes Station features an optimized interface for a smoother user experience. Notes Station allows users to collectively write documents and helps users to track changes by retaining the revision history of documents. Notes Station provides useful image-editing tools, helping you create well-designed documents. You can also create sharing links to share documents in real time. Documents can also be encrypted to prevent unauthorized access, and snapshot backup is provided to retain different versions of documents from different time periods. With its importing/exporting and full-site backup functions, Notes Station supports backing up your documents to local or remote QNAP NAS.
Note: Notes Station 3 will be available from QTS 4.3
QmailAgent is an online email client that helps you manage multiple email accounts, allowing you to access all of your emails and to easily switch between different accounts. It provides complete functionality for composing, reading and organizing emails.

The TS-431P is a comprehensive centralized backup center for multiple files. The front panel USB port features a one-touch-copy function for you to instantly back up data on USB drives to the TS-431P or alternatively to back up data from the TS-431P to USB drives. You can use QNAP NetBak Replicator to back up files on Windows® (including Outlook® email archiving) to the TS-431P, or use Time Machine® for Mac® data backup. A wide range of third-party backup software (such as Acronis® True Image™ and Symantec Backup Exec™) are also supported to facilitate system backup and restoration.
Hybrid Backup Sync consolidates backup, restoration and synchronization functions (using RTRR, rsync, FTP, CIFS/SMB) into a single app for easily transferring data to local, remote and cloud storage spaces as a comprehensive data storage and disaster recovery plan. Supported cloud services include Amazon® Glacier, Azure™ Storage, Google Cloud Storage™, Google Drive™, Microsoft® OneDrive®, Dropbox®, Amazon® Drive, Yandex® Disk, Box® and Amazon® S3/OpenStack Swift/WebDAV compatible services. Hybrid Backup Sync supports multi-version backup, flexible job scheduling, file compression to save storage space, and more.
In contrast to the limited storage space and potential security concerns of public cloud services, the TS-431P is advantageous for establishing a secure and large-capacity private cloud where you have full control over how your data is used and transmitted. The myQNAPcloud service allows remote access to files stored on the TS-431P, allowing you to play & share multimedia from the TS-431P or to conveniently check the system status from anywhere.
Qsync turns your TS-431P into a safe, high-capacity data center for file synchronization. Any file uploaded to the TS-431P will be made available for all linked devices, such as computers, laptops or mobile devices. Qsync is especially useful for frequent travelers to manage files and always have the most up-to-date files on different devices. Qsync provides multiple ways for file synchronization and group file sharing, greatly enhancing the flexibility of team projects and collaboration.
