Synology have announced the release of the DiskStation DS710+, a 2-bay NAS server SMB solution aimed at business and home-enthusiast users alike. Utilizing an Intel Atom D410 CPU, one Gigabit LAN port, 3 USB ports and 1 GB DDRII RAM, the DS710+ is to be a high-performance, cost-effective unit.

“Today’s small business environments require network attached storage solutions that support multiple clients and protect data while reducing operational costs”, said Seth Bobroff, General Manager, Intel Data Center Group, Storage. “The Intel® Atom™ processor D410 with integrated storage features within Synology’s solution delivers an energy-efficient and cost-effective platform that helps manage networked data.”

The DS710+ is compatible with Synology's DX510 5-bay drive expansion (due for release next month), bringing the possible total storage capacity all the way up to 14TB.

Other general features include various RAID configuration support (JBOD, RAID 0, 1, 5, and 6) for speeds of up to 110MB/s read and 110MB/s write, as well as a minimal 31W power consumption under normal operation.

“Yet again, Synology has done a superb job reducing power consumption to a minimum without compromising functionality and performance”, says Sales and Marketing Director Victor Chiang. “With the use of Synology’s scheduled power down function, hard drive hibernation and wake-on-LAN support, it’s possible the DS710+ will consume less power than an energy-saving light bulb”.  



The DS710+ is shipped with Synology's DiskStation Manager 2.2, which will upgradeable to version 2.3 for free later when it is released next month.  DSM 2.3 will bring several new features to the table, including Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR), block-level iSCSI target, and AES 256-bit shared folder encryption support.

Be sure to stay tuned for our review coming to gain some insight into the performance of this unit.

Thanks for saying Hay.. I know these things can be hard. I was diagnosed with a bone cancer when I was 12/13.. took alot of time to get over, but I'm all okay now.

Was a nasty operation, 1'2" Scar on my left hip down to my bags (had to say :blink:). Glad you're okay though. Keep strong.

I've got a scar like that :lol:

I got a hernia about the size of a grapefruit when I was 12. It came down between my legs (in the middle, like).

They sorted it but didn't mesh it. I had a scar about 4" long. Well, a year later it came back about the size of two grapefruits. Ended up becoming estrangulated and ruptured and I had to have an emergency op. I now have this massive scar about 12" long that starts on my left hip and stops right above my old chap.

Hayley. I won't pretend to know how you feel because I've never been through what you are going through. However I admire you for having the strength. My family suffer with dodgy hearts. Dad died when he was 34 and his sisters and brothers all died before 40 (barring one who had a double bypass). Thus every year I have to go and be poked and prodded and have tests run. And god, that's frightening enough.

I really admire your strength :)
