Synology today announced the new 4-bay Synology DiskStation DS923+, the latest in its Plus line of all-in-one storage devices for home office and small business users.
Powered by the versatile Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, the DS923+ delivers comprehensive solutions to protect and manage business data, easily collaborate on documents, access files remotely, and monitor physical assets, all within a compact desktop format. It offers consistent performance out of the box, with the option to easily upgrade networking and further boost data transfer speeds through network cards.
The DS923+ can function as the primary storage and data protection solution for homes and small offices, or as an edge node for multi-site deployments. Capable of storing more than 50 TB across its compact 4-bay setup, it can easily be scaled to accommodate more than 120 TB across 9 drives with a DX517 expansion unit.
Users can further boost performance by upgrading to 10GbE networking and by adding M.2 NVMe SSD drives through the built-in PCIe slot to enable fast caching or create additional all-flash storage pools. The DS923+ allows users to make use of high-performance local storage while simultaneously reducing footprint using hybrid cloud technology. Synology Hybrid Share efficiently stores cold data in the cloud and keeps frequently accessed files cached on the device for access at LAN speed.
Syncing between cloud storage services and up to five Synology servers enables deployments to benefit from the convenience of the cloud and the speed of local access over LAN. One-way or bidirectional syncing can be configured to cater to each team's needs or requirements. Ensuring that critical or sensitive data is always protected against modern cybersecurity threats is essential to avoid irreversible loss of valuable information. Synology's Active Backup Suite allows IT infrastructure, such as Windows and Linux systems, Hyper-V and VMware VMs, and Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace accounts, to be safely backed up onto the D923+ and easily restored when needed.
The Synology DS923+ is available starting today at an MSRP of $599.99 through Synology partners and resellers.
