Synology Releases Its Latest 2-Bay High Performance NAS for Small Business - the DS214+
BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Synology America Corp. announces the pending release of the all-new DS214+. Optimized for small businesses, this dual-bay NAS sets a new benchmark for price and performance.
Read/write speeds have nearly doubled over the DS213+. The DS214+ takes full advantage of its new dual-NIC design, by enabling link aggregation (LAG) for increased throughput and failover. With LAG enabled, the DS214+ can now achieve read performance of over 200MB/s and over 150MB/s for write.
The new case design makes installation and maintenance easier than before. Each hot-swappable bay uses Synology's new tool-less drive caddies. Each bay can now be locked, to prevent accidental removal.
Among its other attributes, the DS214+ now has a faster Dual-Core ARM processor, and a full gigabyte of RAM. The unit is especially responsive when it comes to multitasking using Synology's award-winning DiskStation Manager (DSM 4.3) OS.
With DSM 4.3 the DS214+ supports features like:
- Cloud Station with selective sync – Keep files, file-types, and folders in sync across all of your devices
- Encrypted network backup over Rsync, HTTPS, and VPN connections – to keep data transfers private between networks
- File Station folder link sharing – easily share data without having to set up custom permissions
- LDAP Directory Server – Backup and restore LDAP databases
- iOS, Android, and Windows Phone support – for convenient remote access
"The DS214+ is every bit an improvement over the DS213+," said Thadd Weil, public relations manager at Synology America Corp. "It offers nearly double the performance at an extremely attractive price."
