REDMOND, Wash., Jan. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Synology America announced the release of its most recent business-class storage solution, the RackStation RS411. The new RackStation offers improved performance over its popular predecessor (RackStation RS409) with about 25% faster read and write speeds with only a minor price increase. Priced under $800, it offers a very affordable rack-mount solution for offices.
Using 3TB drives, the new RackStation supports up to 12TB storage in a 1U rack-mount configuration. The storage can be configured in a variety of volume types, including Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) for automated volume management.
"This RackStation model offers an excellent value to small businesses," said Joshua Wise, a Senior Product Specialist at Synology America. "Between its upfront price/performance ratio, and its energy-saving design, it is built to save businesses money."
In addition to its reasonable pricing and low energy consumption, the RS411 comes with Synology's now-famous DiskStation Manager (DSM) 3.0. DSM 3.0 offers an intuitive browser-based interface to minimize the learning curve.
DSM 3.0 also brings a rich integrated feature set for business users. Enhanced iSCSI support (including MPIO and MC/S) allows for easy integration with VMWare, Hyper-V, and Xen Server environments without the cost and complexity of a SAN (storage area network). ADS integration allows use of existing domain users and groups for domains up to 100,000 users and groups. Access control lists (ACLs) allow file-level privilege control using NTFS-style permissions.
Businesses can also benefit from the included Surveillance Station 5, which allows the RackStation to function as an NVR solution, supporting up to twelve IP channels. Surveillance Station 5 offers a unified interface to over 700 models of IP camera.
In addition, the RS411 is backed by a competitive 3 year warranty and in-house technical support at no additional cost.
