Dual Core and Dual LAN Performance

Performance is the key for smal and medium business users. Synology DS214+ comes with a dual core CPU with built-in floating-point unit, 1GB DDR3 RAM, dual LAN ports, SuperSpeed USB3.0 and the brand new tool-less drive trays, providing incomparable system performance among 2-bay NAS devices available nowadays. The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU to enable higher working efficiency. With RAM twice the size of its predecessor, DS214+ also exhibits a surprising boost in multi-tasking performance. Under link aggregation, DS214+ delivers over 153 MB/s writing speed under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows® environment, and over 208 MB/s reading.1 The dual LAN also supports failover mechanism, ensuring continual network service in case of LAN failure.

Cross Platform File Sharing and Mobile Access

Comprehensive network protocol support assures seamless file sharing across Windows, Mac®, and Linux® platforms. Windows ADS and LDAP integration allows the Synology DS214+ to quickly and easily fit in an existing business network environment with no need to recreate user accounts. Windows ACL support provides much finer-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing users to enjoy native Windows experience.

Internet file access is simplified by the encrypted FTP server and the web-based File Station. HTTPS, the built-in 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.

Rich Office Applications

Synology DS214+ runs on the award-winning operating system, Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), which offers comprehensive applications and features designed specifically for office and business workgroups.

Cloud Station allows users to sync files among multiple devices, including Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android tablets or phones, effortlessly keeping everything up-to-date. The Mail Server package turns Synology DS214+ into a dedicated mail service provider, while Mail Station, provides a webmail interface for users to access emails stored on Synology DS214+.

VPN Server package offers an easy VPN solution that turns your Synology DS214+ into a VPN server, providing a secure way of connecting to a private LAN at a remote location. RADIUS Server strengthens network security by overseeing wireless access authentication via RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) networking protocol.

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.

Effective Backup Solutions

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 DS214+ to another Synology DiskStation or any rsync server via an encrypted connection, or to an external hard drive via USB 3.0 or eSATA connection. The wizard also makes it easy to back up DiskStation data to the cloud via Amazon S3™ or Glacier cloud service. In addition, users can back up and restore DiskStation shared folders in multiple versions using Synology Time Backup package.

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.

Energy Efficient with Cool and Quiet Design

Synology DS214+ is designed with energy efficiency in mind. Not only does it provide a 92x92 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 multiple scheduled power on/off and System Hibernation can further reduce power consumption and operation cost.

I'm really not sure what the other reviewer is on about and clearly blaming this product for his lack of technical knowledge. This series of Synology drives (412/713 etc) are excellent products and I've installed this and other Synology in many small businesses for their storage needs. They all remain reliable and easy to maintain. Like all NAS it requires some initial setup but the interface is very easy to use, better than most NAS on the market. The apps are good and easy to setup offsite backup services like Amazon S3 (once you've actually configured them on S3 that is). My only criticism of the drive is that for the price it's not very robust and quite light hence the 4 rating. Bare this in mind if in an environment where it may get kicked/dropped/man-handled.

Synology NAS - Avoid!

A flawed product. It worked, with effort, originally software now with latest (DSM 5), it has stopped working. Software is very complex but poorly tested and implemented eg: will not scale in browser screen. Now an expensive, useless product with my data/pictures trapped on it. Avoid at all costs - do not beleive the hype that suggests a good product - it isnt. Very poor and ultimately very expensive when support requirements are factored in. Be aware product is not: + "plug and play" with any BT Homehub 3. + Needs significant specialist input and time the make this work. + Offers only online support that takes 3-5 days. No telephohne support available. + Apps for remote access not fully integrated and inconsistent. Avoid unless you are a specialist with time on your hands.
