Synology DS423+ External HDD/SSD Overview
The DiskStation DS423+ 4-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology is a capable performer with tools to help you secure, back up, and sync your data and media. Built-in solutions available in Synology's DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS let users create their own private cloud, organize and stream music, video, and photo collections across all devices, seamlessly collaborate with partners, set up an intuitive surveillance system, and more. The DS423+ is equipped with four drive bays that are capable of natively supporting 3.5" SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5" SATA hard drives and SSDs.
The DS423+ runs on Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Its CPU is a 2.0 GHz Intel Celeron J4125 Quad-Core with a burst frequency of up to 2.7 GHz, and its 2GB of DDR4 RAM, which can be upgraded to 6GB, allows frequently used files and applications to be quickly accessed. Using its dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, this NAS is capable of sequential read speeds up to 226 MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 224 MB/s.
Two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports allow it to be connected to compatible peripherals, and network connectivity is achieved via the dual integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports that support link aggregation and failover, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network. Data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android applications. For those who require RAID support, the DS423+ supports RAID 0 and 1, 5, 6, 10, as well Synology Hybrid RAID and Basic RAID, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available, allowing each drive bay to be individually utilized.
The DS423+ is engineered to be energy efficient and uses dual 92 x 92mm fans to help keep the system running cool at all times. The server supports numerous scheduled power on / off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses.
The Synology DiskStation DS423+ 4-Bay NAS Enclosure operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, an AC power adapter, an AC power cord, and two RJ45 LAN cables. It is protected by a limited 3-year warranty.
