Synology logoSynology has announced a Intel based quad-core NAS and beta of its upcoming OS.

The DS415+ DiskStation runs on a quad-core 2.4 GHz Intel Atom C2558 with 2 GB of DDRIII RAM. The four hot-swappable SATAIII bays accept 2.5" and 3.5" hard or solid-state drives configurable in multiple individual, JBOD, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6 and 10 volumes as well as Synology's Hybrid RAID system.

Port complement is two aggregatable Gigabit LAN, one USB 2.0, two USB 3.0 and one eSATA. There is no 10 GbE option.

The Intel processor supports AES-NI hardware encryption for improved performance with encrypted volumes. Synology specs the DS415+ at 228.04 MB/sec read and 233.51 MB/sec write for an unencrypted RAID 5 volume from a Windows client with aggregated link.

The DS415+ is on its way to stores now, but pricing was not announced.
