Synology DiskStation DS411+ Nas box
Dual core storehouse
Maximum performance isn’t the only important factor here though. In comparison with other Synology models, it’s evident that – with the exception of the DS410’s impressive JBOD and RAID1 sequential read ability – the DS411+ trumps everything else with huge performance benefits in all write operations.
Perhaps not the fastest Nas, but certainly one that has plenty of configuration options
If you’ve got the hardware to unleash the DS411+’s immense read potential, then you’ll most likely have the extra £100 to opt for it over the DS410. After all, this is most certainly a business oriented machine and not for the home user, although there will be many an enthusiast who would spend the extra as well.
While there may be speedier Nas boxes out there, Synology’s DiskStation product line is miles ahead of the curve thanks to the features of DiskStation Manager 3.0. It's just a pity the physical styling doesn't follow suit. Still, if you’re looking for a four bay Nas box with a multitude of features and an impressive performance to boot, then the DS411+ is certainly worth considering. ®
