Compact and scalable rackmount NAS designed for business workgroups

News | 11.04.2019

Synology Inc. launched RackStation RS819, a compact and scalable 4-bay rackmount NAS with snapshot technology support, designed for business workgroups to effectively manage, share, synchronize, and back up data.

For growing business workgroups on limited budgets, setting up an effective data protection and backup plan is sometimes not their first priority, leading to catastrophic losses in case of server failure. By adopting a new 64-bit quad-core CPU, RS819 is our first RackStation in the Value Series to support snapshot technology, bringing easy data protection solutions.
