Synology Announces the DiskStation DS214+ NAS and DiskStation DS214se NAS


Synology America Corp. announces the pending release of the all-new DS214+ and DS214se for home enthusiasts and business users that need network attached storage (NAS) to perform single-roles at an affordable price.

 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 200 MB/s and over 150 MB/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 1 GB 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."



The DS214se makes the most of what a NAS is built for; remote access, file sharing, backup, and media streaming. Optimized to be an excellent single task-oriented utility, the DS214se runs Synology's award-winning DiskStation Manager 4.3 (DSM 4.3).

   
Through its intuitive interface, the DS214se offers a wealth of options such as:
  • File Station with folder link sharing - easily share data without having to set up custom permissions
  • Cloud Station with selective sync - Keep files, file-types, and folders in sync across all of your devices
  • Scheduled Backup - Keep local data safe from accidents
  • iOS, Android, and Windows Phone support - for convenient remote access
The DS214se was designed for users that want fast access to their data at an aggressive price. It sports read performance above 100MB/s, and is fully DLNA certified as a Digital Media Server (DMS). 

With an MSRP of $159.99, the DS214se provides the same versatile capabilities of its DiskStation brethren through DSM. "The DS214se is an ideal solution for users who want backup, remote access, and the benefit of Synology's DSM with its rich ecosystem" said Thadd Weil, public relations manager at Synology America Corp. "It's an advanced storage utility, that brings the private cloud down to our most affordable level ever."
