The DS710 is scalable up to seven bays with the DX510 expansion enclosure for a total of 14 TB of storage. With built-in file sharing, automatic backup, remote access, Web hosting, e-mail hosting, and media streaming, the DS710 is an affordable central data hub for small business that is easy to scale.
“Companies are looking for affordable solutions to manage their data that will be flexible as their business grows and that is affordable right now to integrate into existing IT structures,” says Doug Self, product specialist at Synology America Corp.
Self says the DS710 is also “remarkably fast.” He says, “In Synology’s lab, under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment, the reading speed of Synology DS710 reached 110 MB per second while writing 100 MB per second, which makes the DS710 a great solution for demanding business users.”
The Synology DS710 is equipped with the new Intel Atom D410 CPU, one Gigabit LAN ports, 3 USB ports, and 1 GB DDRII RAM. The DS710 also offers such green features as lower power consumption, wake on LAN, scheduled power off, and hard drive hibernation.
“Today’s small business environments require network attached storage solutions that support multiple clients and protect data while reducing operational costs”, says Seth Bobroff, general manager at Intel Data Center Group. “The Intel Atom processor D410 with integrated storage features within Synology’s solution delivers an energy-efficient and cost-effective platform that helps manage networked data.”
The new Synology DSM 2.3 is scheduled for official release in March 2009. DiskStation DS710 Diskless and DiskStation DS710 2100 will be shipping in the U.S. by the end of February.
