Unleashes IT transformation with performance, storage capacity, and physical size that matter to midsize and large businesses

Synology® Inc. announced the launch of its suite of data management products including FS6400, FS3400, SA3400, and DS620slim in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. These new models refine the company’s product portfolio to resolve IT challenges from IO density, storage capacity, and physical dimensions of the server, and are successors to the existing ones with a name change in the product series to better distinguish among high-end rackmount servers.


“Data management is the core of every business and to facilitate it prime factors like storage, capacity and performance, among other factors become key to seamless operations. The mid-size and large businesses in the MEA region are constantly looking for products that meet their pressing demands for effective data management. With the launch of our new range of data management products like FS6400, FS3400, SA3400, and DS620slim, we hope to address the needs of businesses in this ever-growing segment,” says Nick Jheng, Region Manager – Middle East, Synology.

“Synology renews the product portfolio for high-end models to offer more options tailored to demands from various business workloads,” said Jason Fan, Product Manager at Synology Inc. “When it comes to data management, performance and capacity are two central concerns facing businesses. Therefore, we developed the FS and SA series to address these specific concerns from IT administration, taking data management to new levels of flexibility and efficiency. All these are to eliminate storage silos and enable businesses to realize the potential value of their important data.”
