Synology Inc. today announced the availability of DiskStation DS712+, a high performance and scalable 2-bay NAS server designed for small and medium businesses.
“Synology DS712+ presents tremendous opportunity for SMB owners wishing to have the flexibility of scaling up to a larger storage solution from a smaller form factor. As small businesses grow, so does their data. With Synology DX510 expansion unit, the DS712+ offers a unique solution by scaling up a compact 2-bay NAS server into a 7-bay storage on-the-fly, providing up to 21TB of storage capacity,” said Chad Chiang, product manager of Synology Inc.
Powered by a 1.8GHz dual core processor with Link Aggregation enabled, the read speed of the DS712+ outperforms its predecessor by 60% faster at 180.91 MB/sec and average write speed at 105.59 MB/sec under RAID 1 configuration. To ensure high availability to stored data, the DS712+ features front mount hot swappable drives with dual Gigabit Ethernet ports for failover protection to prevent unexpected service downtime.
