Synology has expanded its DiskStation network-attached storage (NAS) line by releasing the new DiskStation DS211+. This latest model includes two hot-swappable drive bays, which allows a hard drive to be replaced in the event of a failure. Each drive bays supports 3TB hard drives, allowing the NAS to support as much as 6TB of storage space over a network. The Synology DiskStation DS211+ can be arranged in a RAID configuration that provides added redundancy to help protect against data loss. Each purchase comes bundled with Synology’s DiskStation Manager software to provide a full control for all services that are installed on the NAS. This included software also has the ability to back data up through Time Machine, audio and video streaming to UPnP devices, and a full range of third-party plug-ins, including FTP services and on-device BitTorrent (News – Alert) clients. The Synology DiskStation DS211+ NAS drive will retail for around $400 each. [infoTECH]
