Synology, a Taiwanese company specialising in network-attached storage, has launched its RackStation RS819, the first RackStation in the value series with snapshot technology in the Middle East
The RS819 is a compact and scalable four-bay rackmount network attached storage (NAS). It has been designed ground up for business workgroups to effectively manage, share, synchronise, and back up data.
Nick Jheng, regional manager - the Middle East at Synology, said, ?Rapid adoption of digital transformation technologies including cloud, analytics, big data, machine learning, amongst others, is drawing attention to the need to have cost-effective, scalable, efficient storage solutions with inbuilt backup and replication technologies.?
?Synology?s latest NAS solution is built with a compact footprint and uses a state-of-the-art 64-bit quad-core CPU with expandable storage capacity up to 112 Terabyte. Medium sized enterprises can benefit significantly with the range of computing and storage capabilities inbuilt into the RackStation RS819,? he added.
According to IDC?s forecast, the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa region will see annual spending on digital transformation cross the US$25bn mark in 2019.
Synology stated that this spending is only going to increase over coming years as more and more organisations experiment with transformative technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence, and Internet of Things in a bid to spur innovation and revolutionise the customer experience.
According to IDC, around 89 per cent of organisations in the Middle East and Africa now view digital transformation as central to their corporate strategies.
Michael Wang, product manager at Synology Inc, commented, ?For growing business workgroups on limited budgets, setting up effective data protection and a backup plan is sometimes not their first priority, leading to catastrophic losses in case of server failure.?
?RS819 is our first RackStation in the value series, using the new 64-bit quad-core CPU, to support snapshot technology, bringing easy data protection solutions,? Wang noted.
RS819 runs on DiskStation Manager, an operating system for Synology NAS devices, offering various applications to enhance work productivity.
