DS214: High Performance NAS Server for SMB & SOHO

Synology DiskStation DS214 is a feature-rich 2-bay NAS server for workgroups and offices, specifically designed for users who need to share and protect data effectively, while increasing productivity with comprehensive office applications.

Synology DS214 is in the best cost/value ratio, but everything else is in the extreme. Synology DS214 delivers outstanding read/write performance, an average over 100 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment, and over 110 MB/sec reading. The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail processing, making photo viewing a refreshingly new experience. Designed with both safety and convenience in mind, DS214 contains the brand new tool-less hard drive trays, allowing users to fixate 3.5" hard drives without a screwdriver. Meanwhile, DS214 also supports hot-swappable hard drive trays, enabling instant and risk-free hard disk replacement. External storage access is made fast and easy, with two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interfaces in the back, alongside one USB 2.0 interface in the front panel for quick access. Running on Synology's award-winning DSM operating system, DS214 shares the rich reservoir of applications available in DSM Package Center.

Optimal Price/Performance Ratio

Synology DS214 is in the best cost/value ratio, but everything else is in the extreme. Synology DS214 delivers outstanding read/write performance, an average over 100 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows® environment, and over 110 MB/sec reading.1 The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail processing, making photo viewing a refreshingly new experience. The Synology DS214 is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads the encryption calculation task away from the main CPU, helping to improve file transfer speeds of the DiskStation.

Designed with both safety and convenience in mind, DS214 contains the brand new tool-less hard drive trays, allowing users to fixate 3.5" hard drives without a screwdriver. Meanwhile, DS214 also supports hot-swappable hard drive trays, enabling instant and risk-free hard disk replacement. External storage access is made fast and easy, with two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interfaces in the back, alongside one USB 2.0 interface in the front panel for quick access.

Windows + Mac + Linux Cross Platform File Sharing

Synology DS214 offers comprehensive network protocol support, assuring seamless file sharing across Windows, Mac®, and Linux® platforms. Windows AD and LDAP integration allows Synology DS214 to fit quickly and effortlessly into any existing network environment, with no need to recreate user accounts. Internet file access is simplified by the encrypted FTP server and the web-based file explorer, Synology File Station. HTTPS, firewall, and IP auto-block support ensure file sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level.

For users who are always on the move, Synology provides a handy app, DS file, for popular mobile devices such as iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ devices and Windows Phone™. Anything stored on Synology DS214 can now be accessed remotely using DS file.

Effective Backup Solution

Synology DS214 offers a centralized backup target to consolidate fragmented and unstructured data across a network. PC users can back up their data to Synology DS214 using Synology Data Replicator software, and Mac OS X® users enjoy native Apple® Time Machine® integration.

A backup wizard is provided for backing up data from Synology DS214 to another Synology NAS, to other rsync server, or to an external drive. Backing up to Amazon® S3 and Glacier cloud service is also supported. The add-on package, Time Backup, keeps DiskStation data in multiple versions, so IT administrators could easily keep track of them and restore to a previous version whenever required.

Shared Folder Sync allows users to synchronize a specific folder from Synology DS214 to another DiskStation - a server-to-client backup mechanism that takes place whenever something is changed on the server side. Users will be able to share documents within their local office seamlessly and safely with encrypted connection. When your DiskStation is down, you will be able to have an immediate backup running in no time.

Rich Office Applications

Synology DS214 runs on the award-winning operating system, Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), offering comprehensive applications and features designed specifically for Small Business & Workgroups.

The built-in mail server turns Synology DS214 into a dedicated mail service provider, and the USB printer sharing capability minimizes businesses' cost by sharing printing resources throughout the office. VPN Server package offers an easy VPN solution that turns your DS214 into a VPN server, providing a secure way of connecting to a private LAN at a remote location.

As to environment security, Synology Surveillance Station offers a centralized interface to manage IP cameras deployed in your office or home, allowing users traveling miles away to safeguard the environment by watching live views, recording events, and taking snapshots with a computer or iOS/Android device.

Energy Efficient with Cool and Quiet Design

All Synology NAS is designed with energy efficiency in mind. Not only does DS214 provide a 92 X 92 mm fan and the smart airflow to keep the system running cool 24/7, its noise dampening design makes it really quiet compared to PC counterparts. The support of Wake on LAN/WAN, multiple scheduled power on/off can further reduce power consumption and operation cost.
