Synology has its DS412+ and Thecus has its N4800. Both are four-bay NAS servers equipped with Intel’s Atom D2700 processor. But does Intel's latest low-power platform help these appliances outperform their predecessors, which were armed with Atom D525?
Three vendors of network-attached storage, Qnap, Synology, and Thecus, sent over Intel Atom-based NAS servers to test the effects of protecting your data via encryption. But performance and configuration options are not identical, as our testing shows.
Synology really impressed us with the performance of its Disk Station DS408. Can the same company do it again with its Disk Station DS207+?
Does a NAS device with high data transfer rate and a Web interface that is easy to configure actually exist? Synology shows how it should be done. But the enclosure is not without its faults, either.
