Today Synology announced via its Press Releases page that its SAT5200 range will be enriched with a new storage capacity SSD. Thus, in addition to the 480 GB, 960 GB and 1,920 GB versions, there is a new model offering a capacity of a whooping 3.84 TB making this one of the largest capacity SSD storage drives on the market.
Taipei, Taiwan – September 29, 2020 – Synology Inc. launched the 3.84 terabyte SAT5200 2.5″ solid state drive. Designed for Synology users requiring high capacity and reliable storage arrays, all the while sustaining high performance low-latency operations for mission critical work. With the increasingly demanding environment in storage, the SSD is created with enterprise grade endurance and reliability to help businesses and users tackle intensive workloads with robust data protection.
“Part of designing a reliable storage system requires companion drives that can consistently sustain heavy read and write operations without any performance degradation. Our SAT5200 SSDs are built specifically to tackle low-latency and consistent performance requirements demanded by our SMB and enterprise customers,” said Julien Chen, Product Manager for Synology solid state drives.
Designed specifically for Synology systems, the SAT5200 SSDs are built to deliver consistently high and dependable performance, over 58,000 4K random write IOPS1.
