When you think of storage drives for your laptops, PCs and servers, the only name that probably comes to mind first is Seagate.
While there are others who are into the storage business, such as Samsung, Western Digital, Hitachi and a few others, when it comes to NAS storage drives, there are just a few manufacturers who cater to this segment.
NAS storage drives need to be highly reliable and who better than Synology to know this. To take things further, Synology has debuted into the storage business with their own NAS-ready SSD drives. The drives are highly optimized for NAS and are ready for demanding environments, such as virtualization workloads, high traffic volume database storage, and AI and HPC projects.
The new lineup of Synology SSD include 2.5in SATA, M.2 2280, and M.2 22110 form factors that are designed to provide consistent performance while maintaining low I/O latency, which is highly important when it comes to data storage, safety and sharing.
Synology’s SAT5200 SATA Series SSDs help speed up workloads with high performance. The series can deliver up to 98K/67K sustained 4K random read/write IOPS2 with minimal performance degradation across the lifespan of the drive. The drives also include power-loss protection and end-to-end data path protection for enhanced data durability, minimizing service disruptions due to data corruption.
Synology’s SNV3400, SNV3500 NVMe Series SSDs can greatly help accelerate existing hard drive storage pools given that they are highly optimised for low latency and random write performance. It can provide over 40K IOPS under sustained random write workloads.
Lastly, Synology’s M2D20 and E10M20-T1 are designed to boost I/O performance and streamline storage experience. The M.2 adapters allow existing Synology customers to take full advantage of the enterprise-grade endurance and performance of SNV3000 series NVMe SSDs. The E10M20-T1 is designed specifically for users looking to simultaneously increase storage and networking performance, with the addition of a 10GbE RJ-45 port. It additionally supports multi-gigabit (5/2.5GbE) standards to enable cost-effective networking upgrades at home or office environments.
The M.2 and SSD lineup is available in 400GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1920GB accordingly and come with a 5 year warranty period.
