Synology unveils FlashStation and new SAS storage lineup

Synology has launched three new products, the FS6400, SA3400 and DS620slim. In addition Synology UK has also announced its cooperation with StorTrec UK to provide and enhance post-sale service for the UK and Ireland.

“Synology renews the product portfolio for high-end models to offer more options tailored to demands from various business workloads,” said Jason Fan, product manager at Synology Inc.

“When it comes to data management, performance and capacity are two central concerns facing businesses. Therefore, we developed the FS and SA series to address these specific concerns from IT administration. All these are to eliminate storage silos and enable businesses to realise the potential value of their important data.”

Joint with the release of FS and SA product line, Synology UK has announced cooperation with StorTrec UK Ltd. to enhance post-sales service coverage for UK and Ireland.

“Business need more than a robust storage device. Equally important are the software features and hardware service to protect the data inside and keep it up and running” said Nicole Lin, managing director at Synology UK.

“Synology is the industry’s best in backup and data protection technology. We’re partnering with StorTrec to extend hardware service to the door of every business. We believe their expertise and a decade of experience in the field will benefit our users.”

Mark Narraway, managing director at StorTrec UK, added: “The demand for Synology has increased significantly over the past two years and their failure rate is astonishingly low. We have faith in their products and are very glad to offer professional services for Synology customers. I believe Synology users who don’t have service contracts in place will like our offering, including 24×7 phone line remote diagnosis, 4-hour response on-site and comprehensive replacement service covering hard drives and spare parts.”

The service packs are available across Synology DiskStation, RackStation, FlashStation, SA series and expansion units.
