Synology(R) Tops 16 of 18 Performance Benchmarks on Tom’s Hardware Intel(R) NAS Benchmark

June 17, 2010

REDMOND, Wash., June 17 /PRNewswire/ — Synology® was acknowledged by the influential IT site news and reviews site Tom’s Hardware by winning 16 of their 18 Intel® NAS benchmark tests for Intel-based NAS devices. Known for high-performance, feature-rich network attached storage devices, Synology has set the performance bar for SMB and home NAS utilizing the Intel Atom D510 and D410 processors.

“Synology has always made DiskStations to be top performers, both in speed and capability, and the Tom’s Hardware tests are a testament to that,” said Doug Self, Product Marketing Manager at Synology. “Deep integration between our hardware and DiskStation Manager 2.3 allows Synology DiskStations to produce ideal results for both SMBs and the most demanding home users.”

Synology DiskStations DS710+, DS1010+, and upcoming rackmount models boast the high-performing Intel Atom D410 or D510 processors; this coupled with Synology’s industry-leading DiskStation Manager 2.3 operating system produces reliably fast speeds. This performance is crucial for DiskStations, which offer a multitude of features, and often run several file sharing, backup, streaming, and other tasks simultaneously.

Unlike other outdated performance testing, the Intel NAS Performance Toolkit used to benchmark at Tom’s Hardware includes tests like HD video playback and recording, content creation, backup/restore tests in addition to standard copy tests. This helps the Intel NAS Performance Toolkit accurately measure the true speeds of a NAS device over many common tasks the user is most likely to perform.
