Synology Inc. has introduced the next generation of 6-bay DiskStation devices.

“Our customers, more than ever, are relying on Synology storage solutions to store and directly utilize critical data, whether for business or personal use,” said Hewitt Lee, Director of Synology Product Management Group. “DS1621+ is designed to be a versatile solution that empowers content creators and businesses by not only providing fast, reliable, and high-capacity storage, but also simplifying IT with effortless backups for PCs and virtual machines.”

Beyond Evolutionary

DS1621+ is the most powerful Plus Series yet. Its quad-core AMD RyzenTM processor features the next-generation “Zen” architecture, delivering over 2x more processing power (compared to previous generation Intel processors2). 

This allows 76% faster sequential write performance at up to 1.1 GB/s1 along with 174% higher 4KB random read performance with 110K IOPS1.

Dual M.2 2280 slots allow NVMe SSD caching to boost performance by 20x or more for commonly accessed data. The DS1621+ also supports an optional 10GbE NIC3 for faster network environments and more concurrent users.

Your Gateway to Enterprise-level Data Protection

Whether you are a content creator, IT administrator, or just someone with plenty of files to store, DS1621+ provides 6 drive bays, with the ability to expand up to 16 bays (using expansion units for truly large file libraries4). 

DiskStation Manager (DSM) comes pre-installed with every Synology NAS and comes with a variety of backup and restoration solutions that cover the most common situations. 

For additional off-site protection, Synology Hyper Backup enables simple, schedulable protection to keep your data backed up to Synology NAS, Synology C2 cloud storage, and other public cloud providers.


DS1621+ is available today from Synology resellers and partners globally at an MSRP of $799.99.
