Synology announces new 4-bay NAS: the DS923+

Synology has released their newest NAS, the DS923. It’s designed for data-sharing, synchronization, backup and surveillance. A few key features include:

Powered by the Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, the DS923+ delivers solutions to protect and manage business data, collaborate on documents, access files remotely, and monitor physical assets, all within a compact desktop format, according to Michael Wang, product manager at Synology. It offers consistent performance out of the box, with the option to easily upgrade networking and further boost data transfer speeds through network cards, he adds.

The DS923+ can function as the primary storage and data protection solution for homes and small offices, or as an edge node for multi-site deployments.

Capable of storing more than 50 TB across its compact 4-bay setup, it can be scaled to accommodate more than 120 TB across 9 drives with a DX517 expansion unit.

Users can further boost performance by upgrading to 10GbE networking and by adding M.2 NVMe SSD drives through the built-in PCIe slot to enable fast caching or create additional all-flash storage pools.

Make the most of on-premises storage

For teams working remotely and businesses operating across multiple locations, site-to-site file syncing enables content mirroring between Synology devices. Synology Drive delivers file management and sharing, combining remote file access with the privacy and 100% data ownership of on-premises storage.

The DS923+ allows users to make use of high-performance local storage while simultaneously reducing footprint using hybrid cloud technology. Synology Hybrid Share stores cold data in the cloud and keeps frequently accessed files cached on the device for access at LAN speed.

Wang says that syncing between cloud storage services and up to five Synology servers enables deployments to benefit from the convenience of the cloud and the speed of local access over LAN. One-way or bidirectional syncing can be configured to cater to each team’s needs or requirements. Learn more about file management

Multi-layered backup

Synology’s Active Backup Suite allows IT infrastructure, such as Windows and Linux systems, Hyper-V and VMware VMs, and Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace accounts, to be backed up onto the D923+ and restored when needed.

For increased redundancy, backups and point-in-time snapshots of data stored on the NAS can also be created and sent offsite to another server or cloud service. Learn more about data protection

Compact surveillance server

Wang says the device can also serve as a full-fledged video management system with full local data ownership. Synology’s Surveillance Station is a VMS that is currently implemented in and protecting more than 500,000 sites. 

Surveillance Station allows users to set up and manage up to 40 cameras with a modern and customizable interface. For larger or multiple building environments, the option to overlay floor plans and Google Maps or OpenStreetMap maps is available. Footage can be retained for increased resiliency with support for recording server backup, multi-device management, and even end-to-end encrypted, simultaneous dual recording to the Synology C2 cloud.
