Milton Keynes, United Kingdom — September 18, 2012 — Synology® Inc. today launched DiskStation DS413 and DX513.
DiskStation DS413 4-bay NAS
The DiskStation DS413 is a 4-bay NAS server that incorporates the latest technologies to minimise power consumption. It is well-suited for small and medium-sized businesses to centralize data backups and synchronise files across different platforms with minimum time and effort.
“Synology DS413 has emerged as an emblem of eco-friendly design and innovation, providing businesses with energy efficient data management solutions,” said Jones Tsai, Director of Hardware Design at Synology Inc. The DS413’s system hibernation mode is unparalleled within the industry. In this mode, the DS413 consumes merely 3.3 watts, and can be brought back to full operation within seconds via web access using Synology’s state of the art technology. In system hibernation mode, fans and hard drives also come to a halt, creating a completely quiet working environment. A further demonstration of outstanding power-saving design, the DS413 consumes only 13 watts and 35.6 watts respectively during hard drive hibernation and in full operation.
The DS413 is one of the first NAS servers to deploy Freescale Semiconductor’s QorIQ® Processor platform. With 1 GB of RAM, this combination enables best-in-class performance, deep sleep power management, and improved multitasking performance. “The compelling new DS413 product highlights the performance and energy efficiency leadership Synology is driving within NAS markets,” said Bernd Lienhard, vice president and general manager of Freescale’s Networking Processor Division. “Freescale is pleased that QorIQ technology powering the new DS413 NAS server helps to contribute to its impressive capabilities and low power operation.”
DS413 features high-performance encryption from a platform upgrade and a hardware encryption engine that achieves read and write speeds of 46.81 MB/sec and 23.46 MB/sec respectively in 256-bit AES. Non-encrypted performance also impressive at read and write speeds of 111.12 MB/sec and 80.86 MB/sec respectively under RAID 5 configuration. To ensure optimal services uptime, DS413 incorporates advanced reliability technologies including passive CPU cooling, two redundant 92 mm system fans, and hot-swappable drives.
Synology DS413 is powered by DiskStation Manager 4.1 (DSM 4.1), the operating system of every Synology DiskStation and RackStation. DSM 4.1 provides rich features to boost user-productivity and simplify their tasks, all on a sleek interface optimised for multitasking. Synology has received numerous media accolades and DS413 is no exception. It received the Computex 2012 Best Choice Award.

DiskStation DX413 4-bay NAS
The DX513 is a new 5-bay expansion unit, a quick and effortless storage expansion solution for selected DiskStations with hot-swappable drive design aimed at businesses and power users.
As storage drives on Synology DiskStations reach their capacity limits, the DX513 provides an immediate solution to remedy this by scaling up DiskStation storage allowance through an additional five bays. RAID volume expansion can be directly performed by the paired DiskStation without reformatting existing hard drives; this allows continuous service uptime for the paired DiskStation throughout the storage expansion process. Furthermore, DX513 can function as a great alternative local backup solution if created as an independent volume for the paired DiskStation.
DX513 pairs to DiskStations via an eSATA cable with unique connector design on both ends to ensure reliability. Maximum throughput at 3.0 Gb/sec allows DX513 to operate coherently with DiskStation as one single unit.
DX513 is designed with the same energy efficiency concepts as Synology’s DiskStations, with hard drive and system hibernation modes that can be configured to operate automatically when the system has been inactive for a period of time. DX513 can also automatically power on/off with paired DiskStation, so no user intervention is required to keep the system running intelligently and efficiently.
