Synology Launches DiskStation DS415+
Synology America Corp. released the greatly anticipated DS415+, a faster and more secure network attached storage successor to the DS412+. The DS415+, powered by the award-winning OS DiskStation Manager, is well-suited for small and medium-sized business users who care about high performance throughput and safety for data sharing and backup.
“Thanks to its best-in-class combination of hardware specs and DSM software integration, DS415+ handles data transfer and encryption at blazing fast speeds, businesses and individuals can safeguard their data while maintaining excellent performance,” said Michael Wang, product manager at Synology Inc.
The new quad-core 4-bay box is a full-featured NAS solution to centralize data backup, protect critical assets, and share files across different platforms.
A Powerful and Secure Box
The DS415+ NAS solution has Quad Core CPU with an AES-NI hardware encryption engine, a floating-point unit, as well as 2GB DDR3 RAM. The four drive bays accommodate huge amounts of storage capacity, while the USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and eSATA ports allow users to connect and access a range of external storage devices. Dual LAN ports support failover and link aggregation, thus improving resiliency and potential throughput.
· DS415+ delivers an average 228.04 MB/sec reading and 233.51 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment. Its predecessor, the DS412+, under the same conditions delivers an average 158.33 MB/sec writing speed.
Excellent Performance while Safeguarding Data
DS415+ supports Synology High Availability (SHA), harnessing an active and a passive server into one cluster, mirroring written data between the two units. Should the main server malfunction, the passive server immediately kicks in and takes over all running services and data. Synology Hybrid RAID allows you to optimize usage and get the most out of your hard drives, while also keeping your storage safe with data redundancy. Complete backup solutions including LUN Snapshot, LUN clone and Backup & Replication minimize the impact of disasters.
