Synology launches affordable 4-bay 1U RackStation RS422+

Synology just launched its most affordable AMD-powered RackStation NAS with four bays and some other highlight features for small to medium-sized businesses. The Synology RackStation RS422+ is designed for the office or lab for data storage and collaborative deployment.

AMD is finding its way into more of the best NAS enclosures and the RS422+ is the next NAS from Synology to launch with a team red processor. Inside, you’ll find the dual-core AMD Ryzen R1600, 2GB of RAM that cannot be expanded, and two 1Gb LAN ports on the rear of the server.

Being a 1U rack, measuring in at 327.5mm for depth, the RS422+ can be installed pretty much anywhere that has a compatible rail. If 1Gb doesn’t sound like much for high-bandwidth use, how do optional 10Gb networking cards that can easily be installed?

Other neat features of this NAS from Synology include the ability to be paired up in a cluster for enhanced reliability. Supporting the Btrfs file system is just a bonus for snapshots and self-healing data. If you’re looking for an affordable, yet very capable 1U NAS, you’ll want to consider the Synology RackStation RS422+.

The Synology RackStation RS422+ is available now for $700.
