Compact and scalable rackmount NAS designed for business workgroups

Milton Keynes, United Kingdom — 11th April, 2019 — Synology Inc. today launched RackStation RS819, a compact and scalable 4-bay rackmount NAS with snapshot technology support, designed for business workgroups to effectively manage, share, synchronize, and back up data.
