Dual Core and Dual LAN Performance Performance is the key for smal and medium business users. Synology DS214+ comes with a dual core CPU with built-in floating-point unit, 1GB DDR3 RAM, dual LAN ports, SuperSpeed USB3.0 and the brand new tool-less drive trays, providing incomparable system performance among 2-bay NAS devices available nowadays. The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU to enable higher working efficiency. With RAM twice the size of its predecessor, DS214+ also exhibits a surprising boost in multi-tasking performance. Under link aggregation, DS214+ delivers over 153 MB/s writing speed under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment, and over 208 MB/s reading. The dual LAN also supports failover mechanism, ensuring continual network service in case of LAN failure.
Cross Platform File Sharing and Mobile Access Comprehensive network protocol support assures seamless file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. Windows ADS and LDAP integration allows the Synology DS214+ to quickly and easily fit in an existing business network environment with no need to recreate user accounts. Windows ACL support provides much finer-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing users to enjoy native Windows experience.
Internet file access is simplified by the encrypted FTP server and the web-based File Station. HTTPS, the built-in firewall, and IP auto-block support ensure file sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level. For users who are always on the move, Synology provides a handy app, DS file, for popular mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad, Android™ devices and Windows Phone™. Anything stored on Synology DS214+ can now be accessed remotely using DS file.
