Synology Targets Photographers With New DS2411+ NAS

If you are a photographer who shoots digital, two things matter to you, the quality of your camera and lenses and the ability to safely store your digital images once the shoot is finished. Even if you can take the most breathtaking images, if you don't store them correctly, they risk being lost forever if the storage medium they are on crashes. Storage space is also another problem to work around as camera resolutions keep increasing, although with the new DiskStation DS2411+ with up to 72TB of space, Synology has you covered.

By itself the DiskStation DS2411+ supports up to 36TB of internal space, but can double its availble capacity to 72TB by pairing up with the DX1211 12-bay expansion unit. Offering a wide range of volume configurations, including redundant arrays over different capacity drives, the DS2411+ has you covered in the event of one or two disks failing without causing you to lose your data. Currently the diskless version is selling for $1,699 from retailers such as Amazon, which isn't that bad considering smaller 4-bay models like the DS411+II start at around $700.
