Synology Inc. today launched the new DiskStation DS418j, a budget-friendly 4-bay NAS server designed to help home and individual users to manage, protect and share data effectively. DS418j is powered by a brand-new 64-bit dual-core CPU and delivers an outstanding encrypted file transfer performance at over 112 MB/s reading and 87 MB/s writing under a RAID 5 configuration in a Windows environment. Coming with a 1 GB DDR4 memory, which is twice the size of its predecessor, and over 40 TB single volume raw capacity support, DS418j brings flexible storage management with excellent operation experience.

"In the digital era, photos, videos, and digital assets are being generated faster than ever. For home and individual users, it is essential to have a private storage solution that can satisfy the needs for both large storage capacity and secure data sharing," said Michael Wang, Product Manager at Synology Inc. "Combining hardware innovations and rich applications, the 4-bay DS418j allows users to enjoy cloud synchronization and multimedia streaming at a competitive price."



Designed with user experience and energy efficiency in mind, DS418j is equipped with adjustable front LED indicators, allowing users to precisely control and schedule the brightness in four levels. In addition, the model consumes only 21.22 watts in full operation and as little as 8.97 watts in HDD hibernation.

DS418j runs on DiskStation Manager (DSM), one of the most advanced and intuitive operating systems for network-attached storage devices which offers a wide range of applications from backup to multimedia for home and personal use. With DSM, Synology has received numerous media accolades, including the PC Mag Readers' Choice for seven years in a row.

4 bays... 87MB/s encrypted writing(and that's ofc sequential, so best case), in which world is that acceptable for 2017?

quick math, any HDD these days can seq write at least 100MBPS ID and more than 200MBPS OD, let's say 150 to average... that's 150 * 3 (one is lost to parity in raid 5)=450MB/s

yet the "new dual core 64 bit processor" brings that to 87MBPS... even if it's encrypted

It's not related much to the processing power, but the 1 Gbps connection is the bottle neck. Best case you'd get around 120MB/s with that link speed. Besides, since this is a J model it is supposed to be cost effective.

A world of their own. My shitty 5 year old Drobo Mini is faster.

This is low cost NAS, not even supports trunking. 87MB/s is not too bad if the price is attractive. If 100MB/s would be good utilizing the 1GBE bandwidth.
