Synology has launched a new upgrade to their Diskstation line featuring a new quad-core Intel Atom based CPU at 2.1 GHz, which has an increased cache size of 8 MB, and supports the newer DDR4 memory. The new Synology Diskstation DS1819+ also comes with 4GB of DDR4 Memory and can be upgraded to a total of 32 GB if needed, for additional scalability in heavy use environments.
The DS1819+ can be scaled up to a total of 18 drive bays when it is paired with two optional DX517 expansion units. This brings the total raw capacity to a staggering 216 TB. To access that raw storage, the DS1819+ comes with 4 gigabit Ethernet ports, and one PCIe slot for either an additional 10 GbE interface card or an M.2 SSD adapter, which could be used for caching.

If you are running a small to medium-sized business, the DS1819+ can be a great solution for a central backup. It can handle backing up of Windows computers and servers, create Virtual Machines, and even handle MS Office 356 and G Suite applications for your users.
