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 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." For more information, please visit this page.
