Synology Inc. today launched the DiskStation DS416j, a budget-friendly 4-bay NAS server designed to help home and personal users effectively manage data as well as enjoy multimedia on any of their screens.
“People are amassing photos, videos, and digital files faster than ever before, which means we need secure storage to centralise everything in one place and a convenient way to access and share them,” said Jason Fan, Product Manager at Synology Inc. “The 4-bay DS416j comes with rich applications and large storage space, letting users enjoy cloud synchronisation and multimedia streaming at a competitive price.”
Coming with a dual-core CPU, DS416j delivers high performance, exceeding 112 MB/sec reading and 101 MB/sec writing under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment — providing users a 37% increase in writing speed when compared with its predecessor. The built-in floating-point unit (FPU) further enhances the overall capability of the main CPU and allows for a speedier photo thumbnail generation. Equipped with a USB 3.0 port, DS416j can connect to external hard drives and a variety of other devices for high speed transmission of media content or personal files.
Designed with user experience and energy efficiency in mind, DS416j is equipped with thoughtful front LEDs, allowing users to precisely control and schedule the brightness with four levels of intensity. DS416j consumes only 21.6 watts in full operation and as little as 12.75 watts in HDD hibernation.
DS416j runs on DiskStation Manager (DSM), the most advanced and intuitive operating system for network-attached storage devices that offers a wide range of applications from backup to multimedia for home and personal uses. Synology was voted by PC Pro readers as “The Best NAS Device of 2015”. According to their survey, more than a quarter of all NAS drives bought by PC Pro readers are made by Synology and 97% of them would buy Synology again.
