Synology has launched the brand new DS423+ NAS with 4 bays to help offices and SMEs gain access to privately-owned storage at a reasonable price.

Also, photo indexing is 21% faster than last-gen models, which is good news for photoholics.
On the back, there are 2 Gigabit ports to hook up two wired connections to the rest of the internal network, and opening up the side slot reveals the pair of M.2 NVMe slots that provides high-speed caching for low latency and improved random I/O performance thanks to the flash chips bridging the bottleneck.
