Taipei, Taiwan—January 15, 2010—Synology® DiskStation DS409 received the "MKB BEST CHOICE 2009" award in the December issue of the Dutch Winmag Pro Magazine. The award translates to "SMB Best Choice" in English.
Among all the reviewed IT services and products in last year, Winmag Pro Magazine chose the best and rewarded with the "MKB BEST CHOICE 2009" awards. The editoral team said the the winners are excellent choices and sound investments for small and medium business. They admired "Synology has very positively surprised us in the past year with high quality and innovative NAS servers."
The Synology DS409 provides users a reliable solution to share and back up data and ensures an optimal price/performance ratio. Under normal operation with four hard drives installed, the Synology DS409 only calls for 42.9 watts which is far lower than the power consumption of average PC servers. The unique scheduled power on/off function and HDD hibernation further minimize power consumption. The built-in disk holder of the Synology DS409 was thoughtfully designed, making the Synology DS409 compatible with both 3.5" and 2.5" hard drives. The provision of several backup alternatives, including Encrypted Network Backup, Local Backup and Desktop Backup and RAID 1/5/6 options, safeguard critical business data.
"We feel honored that the Synology DS409 was chosen to be the excellent choice and sound investment for SMB," said Edward Lin, marketing director of Synology. "This year, the renowned system firmware, DSM 2.2, will have more and more business features which will maximize customers' return on investment even further."
