Synology® Launches High-Performance, Secure and Full-featured DiskStation DS210+ NAS Server for SMB Users
Redmond, WA —May 17, 2010—Synology® America Corp. today launched the DiskStation DS210+, a high-performance and secure NAS server for SMB users to share and backup data efficiently and increase productivity with rich business-oriented features.
The Synology DS210+ is ideal for users who require a reliable data storage solution and demand high-performance file sharing. The small form factor and its encryption ability make it ideal for mobile or branch offices to have on-site storage and features while maintaining a connection to data at headquarters.
Performance tests conducted in Synology's lab showed that in a Windows® environment, the Synology DS210+ delivers 108+ MB/sec reading and 58+ MB/sec writing. The web server responsiveness is impressive, too. The Synology DS210+ takes a mere 78.14 seconds to complete 1,000 simultaneous requests.
“The Synology DS210+ provides users with secure network attached storage solution that protects data while allowing performance to remain high,” said Rosiel Lee, Product Manager of Synology Inc. The Synology DS210+ is equipped with a 256-bit AES hardware encryption engine that can offload the security encryption tasks away from the main CPU, helping to improve file transfer speeds of the DiskStation. The Synology testing lab shows that the hardware encryption engine boasts reading speed that is about 200% faster than a pure software encryption.
SMBs with limited IT resources often encounter difficulty in managing multiple pieces of network hardware. Running the award-winning system software, Synology DiskStation Manager 2.3 (DSM 2.3), the Synology DiskStation DS210+ can cost-effectively replace several devices and even PC servers on the network. For example, Web Station allows for the hosting of up to 30 websites on a single Synology DS210+, Mail Station turns a Synology DS210+ into a mail server, Surveillance Station 4 safeguards property with a centralized surveillance interface for IP cameras, and File Station 3 and encrypted FTP servers simplifies remote access. Live video feeds from connected IP cameras can even be accessed from anywhere with an iPhone® with Synology’s free DS cam app.
DSM 2.3 is more secure than ever. HTTPS, a built-in firewall and IP auto-block support ensure file sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level. New features such as share-level encryption, backup to the cloud with Amazon S3®, and remote backup. These secure functions offer peace-of-mind for branch and mobile office managers.
The DiskStation DS210+ is available in both diskless and pre-installed configurations. Diskless model is currently shipping in the US and Canada; pre-installed configuration, DS210+ 2100, will be available soon in US.
