Synology has launched the US$295 DiskStation DS112+, an all-in-one NAS server that offers high performance with energy-efficient and quiet design for small and medium businesses, according to Peter Chen, product manager of Synology.

It’s powered by a 2GHz processor and includes 512MB of memory, boasting read and write speeds up to 107 MB/second and 76 MB/second. In addition, the DS112+ features two USB 3.0 ports.

The DS112+’s distinct chassis design enhances the overall airflow to keep the system running cool while minimizing the noise level to 18.4 dB(A) with its two side ventilation openings and a 60 mm low-rotation rear fan, says Chen. It consumes only 14.6 watts in operation and further reduces to 6.34 watts when hard drive enters hibernation mode, he adds.
