Dan Lin, Product Manager of QNAP explains a little more.
“The TS-332X is a small NAS, but it is packed full of competitive features. It allows for RAID 5 protection in a budget configuration, supports M.2 SATA SSDs, and performs efficient tiered storage. It is a cost-effective 10GbE NAS that empowers even the most budget-conscious small offices to upgrade their entire IT infrastructure.”
