Synology announces RS1221+ and RS1221RP+ storage servers

Synology has launched the RS1221+ and RS1221RP+ (redundant power) 2U. The 8-bay rack-mounted storage servers are built to deliver high performance in a space-efficient form factor, according to Michael Wang, Synology product manager. “

The RackStation RS1221+ and RS1221RP+ are the first of their series built around the AMD Ryzen V1500B processor. Wang says that, compared to their predecessor1, they deliver 3.6x higher compute performance, which translates to faster performance in data management and backup tasks.

 At 12.1 inches and 16 inches deep, the RackStation RS1221+ and RS1221RP+ are less than half the depth of standard 2U rack-mounted devices. The units are configured with 4GB of DDR4 ECC memory, upgradable to 32GB. Its PCIe 3.0 slot enables upgrading to 10GbE with a compatible NIC, or adding NVMe cache via Synology M.2 cards and Synology SVN3000 series SSDs.

The RS1221+ ($1,299.99) and RS1221RP+ ($1,699.99) are available now from Synology resellers globally.
