Synology has recently unveiled two new 4-bay Synology DiskStations, the DS423+ and DS423, as part of their all-in-one storage solutions for small businesses and home offices. These storage servers are powered by the versatile Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, which offers comprehensive solutions to protect and manage business data, facilitate collaboration on documents, provide remote file access, and even serve as the core of an IP camera-based surveillance system, all within a compact desktop format.

The DS423+ is ideal for small businesses that are looking to centralize their storage, as it boasts a maximum raw storage capacity of 72 terabytes. It is also perfect for professionals and distributed deployments as an edge node. According to Anya Lin, Product Manager at Synology Inc., “The DS423+ offers exceptional value to users with limited storage requirements,” and provides 21% faster photo indexing than its predecessor. Moreover, the DS423+ comes with intuitive file management and sharing through Synology Drive, which combines cross-platform file access with on-premises storage privacy. Site-to-site file syncing is also available for teams working remotely and businesses operating across multiple locations. Businesses can protect existing IT infrastructure against data loss through Synology Active Backup Suite, which allows safe backups of Windows and Linux systems, Hyper-V/VMware VMs, and Microsoft 365/Google Workspace accounts onto the DS423+.

The DS423 is perfect for remote employees or small businesses looking to consolidate their data on a centralized platform and gain access to feature-rich Synology applications. With a maximum storage capacity of 72 terabytes, this storage server comes with Synology Drive for reliable file management, sharing, and syncing via PCs, Macs, and mobile devices, allowing users to access their data anywhere. Remote businesses can also leverage Synology Drive ShareSync to sync data between multiple Synology devices scattered across different locations. The DS423 can connect up to 30 cameras to Surveillance Station, which enables users to back up, encrypt, and archive footage from multiple servers via a built-in central management system. Surveillance Station comes with support for ONVIF devices and over 8,300 validated IP cameras to make deployment as easy as possible.

The DS423+ and DS423 are now available through Synology resellers. Synology SNV3400 series M.2 NVMe SSD drives can be installed through the built-in M.2 slots to enable SSD caching or create SSD storage pools, but these drives are sold separately.
