    Synology UK, leaders in open source network attached storage solutions announced today their most powerful NAS unit yet. Aimed at the SMB and enthusiast market, the DiskStation DS1010+ delivers superb performance, reliability, security, scalability and all the features required for modern day business needs.

    "The DS1010+ is a complete out-of-the-box business solution for all networking and internet requirements, including web server, ftp access, email hosting, backup, file and printer sharing, CCTV surveillance and much more" explained Victor Chiang, Sales & Marketing Director, Synology UK. "All features can be very easily configured in minutes through Synology's intuitive Disk Station Manager 2.2 web interface".

    As with all Synology Disk Stations, the DS1010+ is designed to be highly energy efficient consuming just 68 watts under normal operation. The unit also capable of wake on LAN/WAN, scheduled power off/on and hard drive hibernation to ensure maximum power saving while the Disk Station is not in use. "Reducing carbon footprint is an extremely important part of business" continued Chiang. "For many businesses the performance of the DS1010+ is more than enough to replace an expensive-to-run PC based server but at a fraction of the power consumption".

    Supporting up to 5 hard drives internally and a further 5 with the optional Synology DX510 expansion module allows the DS1010+ to be configured up to 20TB of storage. In a RAID 5 configuration, the unit delivers an average 115+ MB/sec read and 109+ MB/sec write in a windows environment over 2x Gigabit network ports. All drives are also hot swappable in case of failure or replacement.

    The DS1010+ will also support Synology Hybrid RAID (SHD) technology with the update of Disk Station Manager version 2.3 allowing the use of different capacity drives and a more simplified RAID configuration and setup. The unit is powered by a 1.67GHz floating point processor, 2 Gigabit LAN ports, 4 USB ports, and 1GB DDRII RAM on a 64bit memory bus. A 2GB memory upgrade is also available for more demanding users.

    Availability
    The DS1010+ is available immediately from CCL online.

    This is pretty sweet! A bit expensive, would need to see a review before buying but definitely looking like a contender :)

    A 20TB RAID 0? I bet some genius will decide to put a USB 2.0 on that in the near future. "Windows 7 optimized" of course.

    I think Synology are fairly serious they have backed it with a 3 year warranty and a pretty decent hardware spec, its fairly good value but I've only used QNAP's interface..

    "Size: 157mm X 248mm X 233mm"

    H x W x D? Just a bit too wide for it and the expansion bay to fit on a 19" rack shelf.

    I know, just nitpicking. But when you're one in a dozen offerings, it'll sometimes come down to things like that.

    Either RAID 5 is slower than I remember, or....

    I'm thinking that they're testing from only one machine. Even with a teamed connection they would need to bench from two clients.

    ~115MB/Sec is a 1GBit ethernet connection saturated?
