Tech Data builds strength in NAS with Synology

January 12, 2015

Basingstoke, 12 January 2015 – Tech Data UK has made Synology the latest prestige addition to its growing portfolio of NAS solutions, further expanding and strengthening the range of storage products it offers to resellers and retailers.

With its comprehensive range of reliable, versatile, and eco-friendly solutions, Synology meets a broad range of user requirements and has been seeing rapid growth. Now that its products are available through Tech Data, it will be easier for resellers and retailers to take advantage of the firm’s growing reputation in both the small business and consumer markets.

Mark Glasspool, Director of Consumer Electronics at Tech Data UK, said: “Synology has a strong and growing reputation for delivering great performance and quality. It is an exciting and extremely promising addition to our growing NAS range and one that presents a big opportunity to resellers and retailers. The products are excellent and address the widest spectrum of potential – from enterprise to SMBs and even home users, so there is something for every one of our customers – from corporate VARs to independent retailers and every kind if B2B reseller in between.”

Synology recently extended its range by launching the DiskStation DS415+, a powerful four-bay NAS server designed to centralise data storage, backup, and file sharing for SMBs and home users. It features an Intel® Atom™ 2.4Ghz quad-core processor with an AES-NI hardware encryption engine, a floating-point unit, as well as 2GB DDR3 RAM. The four drive bays accommodate huge amounts of storage capacity, while the USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and eSATA ports allow users to connect and access various external storage devices. Dual LAN ports support failover and link aggregation, thus improving resiliency and potential throughput.

Another recent addition is the DiskStation DS115j, a compact, energy-saving, and quiet single-bay NAS server that can be used as a private cloud platform and smart network video recorder. It consumes just 3.85 watts when hard drives enter hibernation mode, and below 13 watts under full operation. It is also extremely quiet compared to similar devices, keeping the noise level to 18.1dB(A) only.

Synology products are available from Tech Data now. For More information, please call the PC Components team on 01256 864220 or email
