Synology has also launched a new RackStation, a 1U 4-bay rackmount NAS featuring flexible storage scalability and M.2 SSD support. It is designed to deal with IO-intensive tasks for growing businesses.

"Equipped with feature-rich collaboration applications, RS1619xs+ is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses to improve collaboration efficiency," said Michael Wang, product manager at Synology.

"Flexible upgrade options, such as high-performance network adapters, M.2 SSD cache, and storage capacity expansion, allow RS1619xs+ to grow with business needs in different phases."
