Powered by the Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, the Synology DS923+ delivers comprehensive solutions to protect and manage business data, easily collaborate on documents, access files remotely, and monitor physical assets, all within a compact desktop format. It offers consistent performance out of the box, with the option to easily upgrade networking and further boost data transfer speeds through network cards.
“The Synology DS923+ provides users with impressive performance and capability for its size,” said Michael Wang, product manager at Synology. “With the ability to easily scale the storage and networking, it adapts as your needs grow.”
The DS923+ can function as the primary storage and data protection solution for homes and small offices or as an edge node for multi-site deployments.
It can store more than 50 TB across its compact 4-bay setup; it can easily be scaled to accommodate more than 120 TB across nine drives with a DX517 expansion unit.
Users can further boost performance by upgrading to 10GbE networking and adding M.2 NVMe SSD drives through the built-in PCIe slot to enable fast caching or create additional all-flash storage pools.
The Synology DS923+ allows users to use high-performance local storage while simultaneously reducing footprints using hybrid cloud technology. Synology Hybrid Share efficiently stores cold data in the cloud and keeps frequently accessed files cached on the device for access at LAN speed. Here are the specifications and features of the new Synology DS923+.
