Synology has introduced new capabilities for its Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Network Video Recording (NVR) products at GITEX Technology Week 2017.
Upcoming Desktop Plus Series products include the DS218+, DS718+ and DS918+, which among others provide doubled transcoding performance and better RAM expansion options. The company also unveiled the DS3018xs and FS1018, which are a new 6-bay NAS and 12-bay all-flash solution that will bring top-notch performance to compact desktop storage to enable compute-intensive application scenarios.
Surveillance has also been one of Synology's key product focuses and at GITEX, the company unveiled new Network Video Recorder products in the NVR1218 and VS960HD. NVR1218 supports 12 concurrent recording channels and a COM port interface that works perfectly to support POS integration in Surveillance Station 8.1., while the VS960HD is a palm-sized local display companion to Surveillance Station, with up to 96-channel HD live view and dual HDMI for 4K and 1080p output, making it an ideal TV wall solution.
"Today, modern enterprises are rethinking storage due to an increasing number of IT managers becoming a lot more comfortable with the idea of moving company data to the cloud. In the Middle East, many businesses have introduced network-attached storage (NAS) to replace their file or backup servers, especially considering its cost-effectiveness along with a rich and growing set of features. We look forward to continue driving this trend by helping professionals work together while maintaining an efficient data protection solution," said Nick Jheng, sales account manager at Synology.
