Synology has unveiled the latest 12-bay unit NAS, the DiskStation DS2622xs+ and DS2422+ together with the DX1222 companion expansion unit to further deliver storage potential against growing computing power in a desktop form factor product.

Synology DS3622xs DS2422

Both the DS3622xs+ and DS2422+ serves the same general purpose but come with different sets of capabilities and performance rating. For starters, the big brother DS3622xs+ is the higher-end model that sports better CPU and RAM capacity to support heavy-duty applications such as networked surveillance, direct on-server video editing, or simply a virtual machine powerhouse with over 4.6GBps/2.4GBps sequential reads and writes in addition to more than 260K random read IOPS while the DS2422+ is geared towards reliable mass storage and efficient data protection in a multi-user environment while staying competitively priced. For connectivity, the DS3622xs+ hosts 2x 10Gb and 3x 1Gb Ethernet ports while the DS2422+ runs a quadruple 1Gb setup.

But that’s where the difference ends so we’ll talk about the similarities. Both units can be expanded with 10/25Gb network interface cards to improve transfer throughput or slotting in NVMe SSD as a hot data cache to further increase the random I/O performance and the best thing of all is through combo cards, you can enjoy both performance upgrade through a single PCIe 3.0 slot. And of course, both machines run DSM 7.0, the latest OS version to date. Lastly, the DX1222 is the expansion unit to compliment the two NAS for easy and upgradeable storage.
