PRESS RELEASE: Synology® today launched DiskStation DS2411+, a 12-bay business-class NAS server designed for SMB users. The DS2411+ is built upon the company’s heritage of delivering cost-effective NAS servers with high scalability in storage capacity and high performance.

“The DS2411+ prepares SMBs for tomorrow’s data growth and demanding workloads, allowing them to tap into additional resources as needed,” said Chad Chiang, product manager of Synology Inc. When paired with Synology DX1211, its expansion unit, the DS2411+ is expandable to 24 bays to accommodate businesses’ staggering data. Data throughput can be ensured with an InfiniBand cable that carries 12Gb/sec SATA signal when bridging a connection.

The DS2411+ comes with 2 LAN with failover and link aggregation support, delivering 167 MB/sec writing and 202 MB/sec reading speeds under RAID 5 configuration. Businesses can upgrade its 1GB RAM to 3GB to achieve efficient data sharing in stringent environments. Service uptime can be further maximized with hot-swappable drive design.

Equipped with a 1.8GHz dual-core processor, the DS2411+ operates at 105W, whereas CPU underclocking and HDD suspension decrease its power consumption to as low as 39W when it hibernates. What’s more, the DX1211 consumes up to 95% less power in deep sleep mode than in operation.

With comprehensive iSCSI support, the DS2411+ can be seamlessly integrated with major virtualization solutions, including VMware® vSphere™, Citrix® XenServer™ and Microsoft® Hyper-V™. In addition, the DS2411+ fits in a business environment easily with Windows ADS and ACL support.

The DS2411+ is powered by DiskStation Manager 3.1 (DSM 3.1), the operating system of every Synology DiskStation. DSM makes complicated things simple and hard things possible by providing versatile features on a snappy, intuitive, and multitasking web-based user interface. Synology has received numerous global recognitions. The same series DS1511+ won Editors’ Choice awards from both CNET and PC Mag.
