Synology releases first J-series NAS with support for Btrfs file system, the DS223j

Synology introduces newest J-series two-bay, the DiskStation DS223j.

Bellevue, WA—28 June 2023—Synology today announced the launch of the 2-bay DiskStation DS223j, its latest system in the entry-level J Series, designed to meet the needs of home office and small teams.

Using Synology’s intuitive DiskStation Manager (DSM), the DS223j features a host of options and applications for everyday data storage and management, including file syncing and sharing, backup, and video surveillance.

“The DS223j is an excellent NAS for small environments, be they home offices or even a bit larger,” said Michael Wang, Product Manager at Synology Inc. “With the DS223j, customers get energy-efficient hardware coupled with all the data management and protection tools they’ll need to effectively manage their files.”

Create a private cloud

The DS223j supports up to 36 TB of raw storage,1 making it an effective option for small teams to consolidate their data onto a single platform for safe and easy access. It is powered by the DSM operating system, which includes a multitude of backup, file sharing, and syncing applications that can be used to enhance remote work and collaboration.

Files can be managed securely, anytime and anywhere, using cross-device access, and with the included Synology Photos app users can back up, share, and organize their photos using intelligent management tools. Compared with its predecessors, the DS223j can handle more demanding tasks and a greater number of simultaneous users. Experience more than 180% faster file indexing in Synology Drive and over 200% faster image indexing in Synology Photos.

With the release of new DSM 7.2, expected in late spring, the DS223j will be the first J-series Synology NAS to support the Btrfs file system. This enables file self-healing to mitigate data corruption, as well as Synology’s Snapshot Replication feature. By creating frequent point-in-time snapshots, users can reverse unwanted and accidental file changes.
