Recently, a new product has joined the ranks of Synology and, of course, mariushosting couldn’t pass on the opportunity to tell you about it. The newly released DS423+ is a NAS model in the DiskStation range designed for home data management. The most important thing to know about the model is that it comes with an outdated Intel Celeron J4125 CPU without AVX support which can limit your Docker container options. The default installed memory is only 2GB, but it’s expandable up to 6GB. The DS423+ also supports M.2 2280 NVMe SSDs. Even though it is intended for home use, this NAS model should be avoided because, if you want to run Docker containers that require AVX support, you will not be able to do so on the DS423+. The new DS423+ has the same CPU as the DS720+ although it’s a new release. So do not go by the name (23+) as this 2023 NAS model has the same processor as the 2020 DS720+.
Note: How much does the Synology DS423+ cost? The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the new DS423+ is $499.99 or 500 EUR.
Note: When will the Synology DS423+ become available? According to the official sources, Synology DS423+ is now available through Synology’s solution partners and channel networks.
Note: How long is the warranty for the DS423+? 3-year hardware warranty, extendable to 5 years with EW202 or Extended Warranty Plus.
Note: What it is I wish would be implemented on future DiskStation models? PCIe 4 Expansion instead of PCIe 3. PCIe 3 is already considered outdated.
Note: Can I run Docker on the DS423+? Yes, you can run it, but you cannot run all Docker containers. The lack of AVX support is what causes it to not support all Docker containers. In other words, this NAS model is not 100% suitable for Docker.
