Synology® DiskStation DS411slim Wins “Best Choice” Award at Computex Taipei 2011
Taipei, Taiwan—May 24, 2011—Synology® is delighted to announce that the DiskStation DS411slim NAS server won the “Best Choice” award in the category of data storage at Computex Taipei 2011. Bringing versatile features, power-saving, and compact appearance to the judges’ attention, the DS411slim stood out among over four hundred products after rigorous examinations by the committee comprised of experts from the technology industry, academia, media, and government representatives.
“We are honored to receive the ‘Best Choice’ award, evidenced by NAS solutions with high marketability and practicability demonstrated by the DS411slim, as well as the extent to which it can securely manage users’ data,” commented Chad Chiang, product manager of Synology Inc.
The DS411slim is compact, quiet, and energy-saving. Exclusively designed for carrying 2.5-inch hard disks, it measures 120X105X142mm, which is nearly a quarter of the size of a conventional 3.5-inch 4-bay NAS server. When fully loaded with 4 disks in operation, it is as quiet as 21.1dB(A), which is lower than the average noise level of 28-33dB(A) at a quiet room. The DS411slim takes on the benefits of 2.5-inch hard disks, which can tolerate a higher level of vibration whereas consuming less power, making it a reliable and a green storage device. The fully loaded DS411slim is energy-saving with merely 16.8 watts in operation and only 9.6 watts in hibernation.
In spite of a compact and small-footprint design, the DS411slim supports a maximum capacity of 4TB and delivers 106.9MB/sec reading and 48.6MB/sec writing speeds. Running on DiskStation Manager (DSM), the operating system of every Synology DiskStation, the DS411slim allows users to back up and share data, remotely access files on mobile devices, including iPad®, iPhone®, Android™ phones, stream multimedia content, and much more.
