Synology today announced the addition of RackStation RS2423+ and RS2423RP+ to the versatile and cost-effective Plus series systems. The 2U 12-bay RS2423(RP)+ are ideal data management and backup solutions for small and medium-sized businesses, as well as branch offices.
"With strong performance out of the box and flexible configuration and expansion options, these servers are the perfect on-prem storage solution for growing businesses," said Peggy Weng, Product Manager at Synology.
Performance and flexibility
Offering a performance increase over its predecessor with sequential read/write speeds of over 3,500/1,700 MB/s, the RS2423(RP)+ packs a punch. This device features built-in 10GbE connectivity along with 2 x 1GbE ports with support for additional 10/25GbE networking. The 12-bays of RS2423(RP)+ support up to 216 TB of total storage capacity and can be expanded to 24 bays with a RX1223RP Expansion Unit for up to 432 TB of storage.2
For businesses with low latency or high random I/O performance demands, SATA SSDs can be used to create flash array volumes, or designated as read/write cache to speed up HDD volumes.
Designed for reliability
The two gigabit Ethernet ports of RS2423(RP)+ can be bonded with Link Aggregation to enable automatic network failover and load balancing while two RS2423(RP)+ units can be paired using Synology High Availability to form a reliable active/passive server cluster, maximizing service uptime. Additionally, the RS2423RP+ features a redundant power supply for an extra edge in service continuity.
A versatile data platform
RS2423(RP)+ includes a suite of reliable file management, sharing, and synchronization solutions. In addition to fast, local access to files, Synology Drive enables easy cross-platform access to file management and sharing tools. Connect and sync data between devices, keeping remote teams and offices up-to-date automatically.
Businesses with greater syncing requirements can leverage the power of the cloud to enable even higher productivity and lower maintenance needs. Hybrid Share keeps multiple sites in sync using less bandwidth, as files only need to be uploaded once to C2 servers. Frequently accessed data is cached locally, providing immediate and fast access while streaming other files as needed, reducing the storage footprint required. Additionally, unexpected storage demands can be met with flexible on-demand cloud storage.
Versatile video surveillance
Synology Surveillance Station is a powerful and flexible VMS with support for over 8,300 validated and ONVIF-certified IP cameras. Up to 50 cameras can be connected to each RS2423(RP)+ and larger deployments can be created by linking multiple Synology servers using the central management system built into Surveillance Station.
Surveillance Station offers a range of powerful but user-friendly monitoring, management, and analysis tools accessible from PCs and mobile devices. As a trusted surveillance solution, Surveillance Station has been deployed at over 500,000 locations globally every day.
Comprehensive data protection built-in
The versatile RS2423(RP)+ provides efficient data and IT infrastructure backup with support for backup of Windows PC/Servers, VMware and Hyper-V VMs, Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace SaaS, and more — all accessible through a single intuitive interface.
Business continuity can be ensured with snapshots which protect files and LUNs against accidental deletion and threats like ransomware with minimal storage use and allow for near-instantaneous recovery of data. RS2423(RP)+ also includes comprehensive system and file backup capabilities for secure backup onto other Synology systems or a cloud storage service.
Warranty and Availability
The RS2423(RP)+ is backed by Synology's three-year hardware warranty3, with an optional two-year extended warranty available in select regions. It is now available at Synology resellers and partners. For additional information, please visit https://www.synology.com/products/RS2423+.
