From Home to Business: Synology Unveils New XS/Plus/Value-Series Product Lineup

Storage solutions designed to meet a multitude of needs

  • DS3018xs: Synology’s first 6-bay tower NAS with optional 10GbE and NVMe SATA SSD supports
  • Plus-series DS918+, DS718+, and DS218+: meet your intensive daily workloads
  • Value-series DS418: optimised 4K online transcoding capability

To allow for ultra-high performance using SSD cache without occupying internal drive bays, DS3018xs features a PCIe slot, which can be installed with a dual M.2 SATA SSD adapter card (M2D17). DS918+ comes with dedicated dual M.2 NVMe slots at the bottom where you can directly install M.2 NVMe SSDs. DS418 features 10-bit H.265 4K video transcoding, and will also support the next-generation Btrfs file system in DSM 6.2 official, expected to be released in early Q1 next year. Btrfs provides reliable data protection through its cutting-edge self-healing and point-in-time snapshot features.

DS3018xs, Synology’s first 6-bay tower NAS, is compact but powerful as it features the advanced processor Intel Pentium D1508 dual-core 2.2GHz (Turbo Boost up to 2.6GHz) with AES-NI encryption engine, offering scalability of RAM up to 32GB and of storage capacity up to 30 drives with two Synology DX1215. In addition to four Gigabit LAN ports, DS3018xs takes advantage of boosting maximum throughput with an optional 10GbE network interface card, delivering stunning performance at over 2,230 MB/s sequential reading and 265,000 sequential read IOPS.

DS918+ and DS718+ are powered by Intel® Celeron® J3455 quad-core processor. DS218+ is powered by Intel® Celeron® J3355 dual core processor. All these models are equipped with AES-NI hardware encryption engine. Powered by transcoding engine, these Plus-series NAS servers support up to two channels of H.265/H.264 4K video transcoding. The RAM can be scaled up to 8GB for DS918+, and up to 6GB for the other two products, allowing you to operate more intensive tasks at once. DS918+ and DS718+ are equipped with two LAN ports, and their storage capacity can be scaled up to 9 and 7 drives respectively with Synology DX517.

“Responding to the demands from our customers, DS3018xs is built as a comprehensive business-ready desktop NAS. Running mission-critical applications or planning virtualisation deployment with DS3018xs has never been easier.” said Katarina Shao, Product Manager at Synology Inc. “The new DS918+, DS718+, and DS218+ are optimised to be your digital video libraries, and will bring you excellent experiences with high definition live video trans coding regardless of device limitations.”

DS418 is equipped with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor with hardware encryption engine, 2 GB RAM, and two LAN ports. Powered by the hardware trans coding engine, DS418 supports H.265 4K trans coding to serve as your media library. Combined with Btrfs and Snapshot supports, DS418 is ready to deliver more efficient data storage and more reliable data protection.
