Redmond, WA (Vocus) September 18, 2009
(Synology America Corp.) - Synology, a global provider of network attached storage devices, known as Disk Stations for the SMB and home market, has expanded their portfolio of storage offerings through their distribution and reseller network to include complete pre-configured Synology storage solutions.
Previously Synology Disk Stations were available only as BYOD (Buy Your Own Disk) devices to allow for maximum customization. Now customers will have a choice of whether to purchase a system complete with hard drives pre-installed or opt to customize their Synology system by picking out their own drives.
The new pre-configured systems include a variety of affordable models such as the DS209j 2050, designed for home users who want to easily install a solution to backup their photos, videos, music collections, share files or use as a surveillance system. The DS209+II 2100 is one of the complete Synology solutions for busy offices, offering everything a small business needs right out of the box, from network backup to file management, to website hosting. For businesses who need higher capacity, the DS409 4100 comes with an affordable four tera bytes of storage for under $1000 and includes all the award-winning features of DSM 2.2 that a successful business can't live without.
"With the availability of pre-configured Synology Disk Stations, customers can now choose which solution works best for their time and budget." Says Cheen Liao, President of Synology America Corp. "Customers with limited IT knowledge or short on time will appreciate the pre-configured devices, while our experienced customers will continue to enjoy the customization of choosing their own disks," adds Liao.
Synology Disk Stations, whether a multi-drive unit or a single-drive unit, each come with the exclusive Disk Station Manager (DSM 2.2) software which offers an intuitive AJAX web-interface and a complete software solution of built-in features such as scheduled backup, RAID, remote access, file management, ADS support, music streaming, photo sharing, web hosting, surveillance and more.
"The availability of a complete hardware and software solution that not only includes file management and backup but a whole host of other valuable features at an affordable price is very attractive to small businesses and home users everywhere," says Heather Morford, Director of Marketing at Synology America Corp. "Our customers have asked for pre-configured Disk Stations and we listened. We are happy to be able to provide complete Synology systems as part of our storage offerings," adds Morford.
