Synology’s latest two-bay NAS is powered by a quad-core Intel CPU.
The DS716+ is a two-bay NAS joining Synology’s "Plus" series that’s targeted to SMB buyers. It’s powered by an 2.08 GHz quad-core Intel Celeron N3150 CPU backed by 2 GB of DDR3 RAM.
The Intel SoC has hardware encryption and media transcoding, enabling H.264 4K / 1080p on-the-fly transcoding and AES-encrypted volumes. Synology says the DS716+ is capable of 141 MB/s write and 218 MB/s read large file transfers with multiple clients and its two Gigabit Ethernet ports configured in link aggregation mode. Other ports include three USB 3.0 and one eSATA.
Capacity can be expanded via Synology’s two-bay DX213 or five-bay DS513 expansion cabinets.
Like all Synology NASes, the DS716+ runs Synology’s DiskStation Manager that includes a wide range of file storage, backup, cloud and media serving and management features.
The DS716+ is shipping now. Pricing was not announced.
