Synology Debuts Embedded DataStation EDS14 NAS

Synology today introduced Embedded DataStation EDS14, a palm-sized, state-of-the-art NAS server combining durability with reliability, implementing Synology's advanced network storage solutions in a wide range of application scenarios. "Designed to survive extreme conditions and harsh environments, the EDS14 is vibration-resistant and complies with the industrial thermal endurance level from -20˚C to 50˚C," said Chad Chiang, product manager at Synology Inc. "Its drive-less design and the support for high-speed SDXC UHS-I SD storage and USB 3.0 further maximize system reliability with performance and capacity."

Synology EDS14 measures at 125 x 125 x 31mm, nearly 70% smaller than an ordinary 2-bay NAS server, and is particularly suitable for areas where space is a challenge. Despite the compact physical size, the EDS14 makes no compromise in reliability by engineering the dynamic cooling mechanisms to ensure CPU health in challenging thermal environments. Optimized for deployment in a variety of environments, the EDS14 can tolerate dynamic DC input voltage from 7 to 24V, is compatible with PoE splitters, and supports 3G/LTE. The EDS14 even comes with multiple mounting solutions, including DIN rail, and a schedulable DC output to power peripheral devices, making it a good fit for versatile deployment.

The EDS14 is capable of handling data downloads at 111.7 MB/s in a Windows environment. By accommodating dual LAN ports with failover support, it maximizes network service uptime while optimizing bandwidth utilization.

Synology EDS14 is pre-installed with DiskStation Manager (DSM), an intuitive operating system that provides a host of applications to bring better productivity at work and offer a new level of multimedia experience. Synology was honored with "PCMag Business Choice Award 2013" and received the highest rating in every element of the survey, including reliability, overall satisfaction, value, and likelihood to recommend.

Just what I was looking for until I read more closely. This would have been a winner product if it was an inch bigger and had support for an internal 2.5" HDD. As it is, I find it "clumsy", requiring an external HDD or flash-stick over USB to provide storage.
