Synology, a leading provider of data storage solutions, has recently launched its newest addition to the Value Series, the 4-bay DiskStation DS423. This multipurpose storage solution is designed to meet the needs of both homes and small businesses.

The DS423 offers everything users need in a compact data storage solution. According to Michael Wang, product manager at Synology Inc., “From backing up data, and managing files and other media, to setting up a surveillance system to protect physical assets, the DS423 comes with a host of useful features right out of the box.”

With a maximum raw storage capacity of 72 TB, the DS423 is perfect for remote employees or small businesses looking to consolidate their data onto a centralized platform. It also provides access to Synology’s essential data management applications.

Powered by Synology’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, the DS423 offers intuitive solutions for organizing and protecting data, collaborating across locations, and implementing video surveillance. The advanced Btrfs file system ensures file self-healing, protecting against data corruption, and allows users to create point-in-time snapshots to reverse any unintentional or malicious changes.

Synology Drive is another powerful feature of the DS423, allowing users to manage, share, sync, and access data from anywhere via PCs, Macs, and mobile devices. Remote employees or businesses with geographically spread-out operations can utilize Drive ShareSync to synchronize data between Synology devices in different locations, keeping teams aligned.

For those looking to reduce local bandwidth and storage use, Synology Hybrid Share is the solution. It enables users to store data in Synology C2 data centers while caching frequently accessed files locally on one or multiple Synology NAS systems. This results in a reduced local storage footprint, reliable multi-site synchronization, and fast local access at LAN speeds.

In addition to its data management capabilities, the DS423 also offers a powerful video management system called Surveillance Station. This system is currently used to protect over 500,000 sites worldwide and supports more than 8,300 validated IP cameras. Users can easily set up and manage up to 30 cameras on the DS423 with a modern and configurable interface. Surveillance Station also provides functions for encryption, backup, and archiving of recordings, as well as the option to record footage simultaneously to the cloud using C2 Surveillance.

The DS423 is available from Synology resellers starting today at an MSRP of $369.99. With its secure, intuitive, and efficient features, this multipurpose storage solution is sure to meet the needs of homes and small businesses alike.

Technology Explained

NAS: Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a specialized storage device or server that provides centralized data storage and access over a network, usually using Ethernet connections. NAS systems are designed to offer a convenient and efficient way to store and share files among multiple users or devices within a home or office environment. Unlike traditional storage solutions, NAS devices operate independently and have their own operating systems and management interfaces. They are characterized by easy setup and configuration, making them accessible even to users with limited technical expertise. NAS devices can offer various features, including data redundancy through RAID configurations, remote access over the internet, automatic backup, media streaming, and even application hosting in some advanced models. As a versatile and user-friendly storage solution, NAS has become a popular choice for both personal and small business use.
