"Synology announced it is shipping a Linux-based
network-attached storage (NAS) device called the DiskStation
DS1010+, offering a dual-core Intel Atom D510 and up to 10 drive
bays. Earlier this month, the company also shipped a single-bay
(2TB) DS110j NAS aimed at SOHO customers.
"The DiskStation DS1010+ supercedes Synology's DS509+ NAS,
moving up to Intel's new dual-core D510 Atom, clocked to 1.66GHz.
Also new with the DS1010+ is the ability to expand from the
standard five-bay configuration to 10 bays via a separate five-bay
DX510 Expansion Enclosure. Together, these features make the
DS1010+ suitable for growing small to medium-sized businesses that
want an affordable alternative to a PC file server for centralized
backups and file sharing, says the company.
"We have not covered the DS509+, but did take a look at the
four-bay DS409, which Synology shipped last June, running on
Marvell's 1.2GHz 88F6281 "Kirkwood" processor. All of Synology's
NAS devices, including the DS110j covered farther below, run on
embedded Linux and offer the company's DiskStation Manager (DSM)
