Synology introduces new 4-bay disk station

Data sharing and backup offering for home and small business users

By CBR Staff Writer

Synology has launched 2.5 4-bay Disk Station DS409slim, a new addition to its 09 series product line, to provide data sharing and backup capabilities. The DS409slim is equipped with a 1.2GHz CPU, 128MB DDRII RAM, one Gigabit LAN port, two USB2.0 ports and one eSATA port.

The company said that the new offering supports up to 2TB with the combination of four 2.5 SATA or SSD hard drives of 500GB. The adoption of 2.5 hard drives helps to increase shock tolerance and MTBF (Mean time between failures).

Edward Lin, marketing director of Synology, said: The DS409slim fulfils of the desire to be eco-friendly while enjoying a quiet and reliable NAS server with rich business and multimedia applications.

Synology said it will release the beta version of Disk Station Manager 2.2 in July 2009 and the official version in September 2009. The new DLNA compliant Media Server ensures interoperability between DS409slim and various DLNA certified CE, PC and mobile devices. The iPhone support allows users to upload photos to DS409slim or to browse photos stored on DS049slim with iPhone/iPod Touch.
