Synology® introduces affordable 4-bay 1U RackStation RS422+
Bellevue, Wash—June 10, 2022—Synology Inc. is pleased to announce the latest addition to the RackStation+ lineup, the Synology RackStation RS422+, a compact and affordable all-in-one solution for edge server applications, small businesses, and home lab owners looking to meet their daily data management, sharing, synchronization, and backup needs.
"The RS422+ is an enticing option for small businesses and home lab owners that are looking for a compact and reliable backup or edge storage solution at a cost-effective price," said Michael Wang, product manager at Synology Inc. "This expansion in our RackStation series strengthens our rackmount offerings, providing our customers additional variety so they can best find the most suitable Synology solution for their specific needs."
Providing big value in a small footprint
Built to support small deployments, the RS422+ has a depth of just 327.5 mm (~12.89 in) with server handles installed. The compact 1U chassis fits perfectly in a 2-post or wall mount rack. The dependable performance of the RS422+ along with its compact size, power efficiency, and support for the Btrfs file system, which allows for snapshots and self-healing of data, makes it a reliable solution suitable for edge server applications.
In addition, the dual 1GbE ports with support for link aggregation makes the attractively-priced RS422+ ideal for use as a mail, surveillance, or directory server. Its built-in high availability feature allows it to be clustered with another RS422+ to form a high-availability cluster, thus ensuring maximum uptime for crucial services. For customers looking to expand their network speeds, upgrading is a breeze thanks to support for 10GbE Ethernet plug-n-play upgrade modules.
Take advantage of the cloud with Hybrid Share
Receive the best of both worlds when combining RS422+ with C2 Storage. Hybrid Share combines the local performance of Synology NAS with the scalability of C2 Storage. Large sets of data are kept in the cloud while requested data is streamed to branch offices using the vast bandwidth of a data center. Frequently used data is retained in a cache on a local NAS for fast, low-latency access. Furthermore, data security is enhanced as data transfer from NAS to C2 Cloud is end-to-end encrypted.
Warranty & Availability
The RS422+ is backed by Synology's three-year hardware warranty1, with an optional two-year extended warranty available in select regions. It is now available at Synology resellers and partners.
1. The warranty period starts from the date of purchase as stated on your purchase receipt. Read more here.
