Synology® Launches DiskStation DS713+
A Robust and Scalable Foundation for Resilient Future Growth
Taipei, Taiwan—November 6, 2012—Synology® Inc. today introduced DiskStation DS713+, a scalable 2-bay NAS server that provides SMB users with a high-performance data management solution.
“When data grow exponentially, businesses struggle to keep up with their evolving needs in the storage race,” said Darren Lin, product manager of Synology Inc. “The DS713+ addresses the challenge by allowing users to quickly expand its capacity up to 28 TB with Synology expansion unit,” added Lin.
The DS713+ surpasses its predecessor with a substantial platform upgrade to a 2.13 GHz dual core processor. Under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows® environment with Link Aggregation enabled, it delivers average read and write speeds of 202.3MB/s and 135.84MB/s respectively. Moreover, the DS713+ is optimized for high-quality surveillance footage, and supports up to 20 channels of simultaneous high-definition IP camera recording.
The DS713+ is equipped with two USB 3.0 ports that offer 10 times faster file transfer rates than USB 2.0. To ensure high availability to business data, DS713+ features front-mounted hot-swappable drives with dual Gigabit Ethernet ports for failover protection to reduce vulnerabilities resulting from unexpected service downtime.
With complete iSCSI support, DS713+ can be seamlessly integrated with major virtualization solutions, including VMware® vSphere™ 5 with VAAI support, Citrix® XenServer™ and Microsoft® Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V™. In addition, it fits easily into business environments with LDAP, Windows AD and ACL support.
