REDMOND, Wash., June 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Synology America Corp. today announced the release of the xs series of network attached storage. These latest entries boast up to 100,000 IOPS, and transfer speeds up to 1,000 MB/s. Beginning under $5,000, the xs series can scale to over 100TB.

"We are setting the new standard in price/performance ratios in the sub-$10,000 market," said Doug Self, Product Marketing Manager at Synology America Corp. "The competition will be hard-pressed to follow us into this territory. No one should settle for less."

Synology has already established its leadership credentials in the sub-$1,000 category - with the DS1511+ taking Editors' Choice awards from both CNET and PC Mag.
