Synology® Launches High-performance and Scalable DiskStation DS1010+ for SMB Users

Taipei, Taiwan, January 27, 2010 --( Synology® Inc. today launched DiskStation DS1010+, a high-performance NAS server delivering scalability, significant storage capacity and multiple business-oriented features for SMB users.

Delivering reliable performance is key for business servers and the Synology DS1010+ delivers. In the Synology testing lab, the Synology DS1010+ breaks through previous performance tests. "It delivers an average 115+ MB/sec reading speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows environment, and 109+ MB/sec writing," said Edward Lin, marketing director of Synology Inc. "The Synology DS1010+ keeps performance high when handling requests from numerous Windows clients concurrently. As to its web server responsiveness rate, it takes only 30.81 seconds to handle 1,000 simultaneous requests," Lin added.

The Synology DS1010+ holds five hard drives that can be scaled up to a total of 10 drives for a maximum of 20 TB capacity using the Synology DX510 that will be launched in March 2010. The hot-swappable hard drive design ensures virtually minimal downtime. The Synology DS1010+ is powered by a 1.67 GHz CPU with floating point computing, 64 bit memory bus, two Gigabit LAN ports, 4 USB ports and 1 GB DDRII RAM. With an optional RAM module, the RAM capacity can be scaled up to 2 GB or 3 GB.

Synology DiskStation is designed and developed with energy efficiency in mind. The Synology DS1010+ consumes only 68 watts of power under normal operation. The support of wake on LAN/WAN, scheduled power off and hard drive hibernation can further reduce operation cost.

Running on the award-winning Synology DiskStation Manager 2.2, the Synology DS1010+ offers comprehensive business-oriented applications and features, including cross platform data sharing, Windows ADS integration, encrypted FTP server, business mail server, web server, corporate surveillance, USB printer sharing capability, and all-round backup solutions that help safeguard critical business data.

The Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR), which will be available for the upcoming Synology DSM 2.3, simplifies the RAID setup, allowing the optimal use of capacity with data protection when using hard drives of different sizes, while still offering advanced users a manual option. Security wise, the built-in firewall function allows the administrator to decide which services or IP addresses are allowed to access the Synology DS1010+ to prevent unwanted connections. Blocking an IP address after a pre-defined number of failed attempts aids in the security of the Synology DS1010+ against unauthorized access.

The Synology DS1010+ is now shipping globally.
