Synology® Launches DiskStation DS415+

Quad-core NAS optimized for intensive tasks and encryption


Taipei, Taiwan—September 24, 2014—Synology® today announced the new DiskStation DS415+, a powerful 4-bay NAS server designed to centralize data storage, backup, and file sharing for small and medium-sized businesses, as well as enthusiast home users.

DS415+ features an Intel® Atom™ 2.4Ghz quad-core processor with an AES-NI hardware encryption engine, a floating-point unit, as well as 2GB DDR3 RAM. The four drive bays accommodate huge amounts of storage capacity, while the USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and eSATA ports allow users to connect and access various external storage devices. Dual LAN ports support failover and link aggregation, thus improving resiliency and potential throughput.

“Thanks to its best-in-class combination of hardware specs and DSM software integration, DS415+ handles data transfer and encryption at blazingly fast speeds, bringing peace of mind to businesses or individuals who wish to safeguard their data while maintaining excellent performance,” said Michael Wang, product manager at Synology Inc.

As the first desktop DiskStation model to include a quad-core processor and AES-NI hardware encryption engine, DS415+ delivers performance and accelerated data encryption that is on par with more expensive high-end servers. With link aggregation enabled, DS415+ provides average reading and writing speeds of 228 MB/s and 233 MB/s respectively, while encrypted file transfers retain an astoundingly similar level of performance, exceeding 232 MB/s reading and 206 MB/s writing.

DS415+ is designed with energy efficiency in mind, allowing users to take advantage of its optimal performance, without excessive energy consumption. During hard drive hibernation, DS415+ requires only 17.3 watts and 46.2 watts during peak usage. By consuming significantly less energy than other servers in the same performance class, DS415+ reduces operating costs and alleviates the need to choose between performance and a frightening electricity bill.

DS415+ runs DiskStation Manager (DSM) 5.0, the most advanced and intuitive operating system for network attached storage devices. Featuring a host of business applications and certified support for virtualization environments running VMware®, Citrix®, and Hyper-V®, DS415+ increases productivity at work and delivers essential services in one device. Synology was voted “PCMag Business Choice Award 2013 winner” and received the highest rating in every category of the survey, including reliability, overall satisfaction, value, and likelihood to recommend.
