Oriented to workgroups and offices, the Synology DS213 is two-bay diskless NAS server that offers a cost-effective way to share and protect data. It comes with one 10/100/1000M Ethernet LAN port, as well as two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, and one SD card port so you can easily share the data on external storage devices. You can also back up data and files on the cloud to access it freely. The DS213 is powered by the Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), a renowned multitasking operating system that offers a full set of applications that enrich its function. The hardware encryption engine delivers solid data protection without slowing down entire performance. The Synology DS213 is engineered with a power-saving and acoustics-optimized design, keeping the NAS server running nice and cool with minimized operation cost.
Optimal Price/Performance Ratio Synology DS213 delivers an average 108.41 MB/sec reading speed under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment, and 65.36 MB/sec writing (the performance figures could vary on different environments). DiskStation DS213 provides a reliable solution for data sharing with an easy-to-use interface and comprehensive office applications – including a complete backup solution – making it one of the best values in two-bay NAS devices available today. Coming with USB 3.0 support, which offers transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbps (10 times faster than USB 2.0), the DS213 takes less time for data transfer for external hard drives and consumes less power. In addition, hot-swappable drives make it easier for maintenance and hard drive replacement.
Effective Backup Solutions Synology DS213 offers a centralized backup target to consolidate fragmented and unstructured data across a network. PC users can back up their data to Synology DS213 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 DS213 to another Synology DiskStation or any rsync server via an encrypted connection, or to an external hard drive via USB 3.0 connection. The wizard also makes it easy to back up DiskStation data to the cloud via Amazon S3® or STRATO HiDrive. In addition, users can back up and restore DiskStation shared folders in multiple versions using Synology Time Backup package.
Rich Office Applications Synology DiskStation DS213 runs on the renowned multitasking operating system, the Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM). Offering a comprehensive list of business applications, the DS213 can be customized to run multiple applications of your choice to fulfill the needs of your business environment. The DS213 replaces several pieces of traditional network hardware with rich features designed specifically for workgroups and offices, such as antivirus, video surveillance, webmail, VPN, and LDAP directory services.
Hassle-Free System Installation Web Assistant is a web-based utility to makes every DiskStation as easy to install as possible. Installation is done inside your existing web browser, by setting up all vital system components in few simple steps. Combined with a quick-start widget, users can simultaneously tour the DSM operating system and set it up to use right away.
Peace of Mind with Data Encryption The Synology DS213 is equipped with an encryption engine: it offloads the encryption calculation task away from the main CPU, helping to improve file transfer speeds of the DiskStation. Data protection is an important matter for businesses of all sizes. The high-end features previously available only on enterprise level hardware are now accessible via Synology DS213 to small and medium-sized businesses. The DS213 provides share-level AES 256-bit encryption to aid in the prevention of unauthorized access attempts to the hard drives.
Energy Efficient with Cool and Quiet Design Synology DS213 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 Wake on LAN/WAN, multiple scheduled power on/off, and hard drive hibernation can further reduce power consumption and operation costs. All Synology products are produced with RoHS-compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology acknowledges its responsibility as a global citizen to continually work to reduce the environmental impact of every product produced.
