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 writing1. 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 2-bay NAS devices available today.

Coming with USB 3.0 support which offers transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbps, namely 10 times faster than USB 2.0, 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.

Shared Folder Sync allows users to synchronize a specific folder from Synology DS213 to another DiskStation – a server-to-client backup mechanism that takes place whenever something is changed on the server side. Users will be able to share documents within their local office seamlessly and safely with encrypted connection. When your DiskStation is down, you will be able to have an immediate backup running in no time.

You can have your own cloud by using Cloud Station to freely access and sync file across different computers. Cloud Station keep multiple versions of a document in case of accidentally delete or upon any change.

Rich Office Applications

Synology DiskStation DS213 runs on 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 requirement 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.

Applications are managed in the Package Center, an application portal that hosts applications as ready-to-use packages; to ensure high software integration as well as one-click-installation to eliminate guess work during installation. Additional approved 3rd party PHP web application such as content management, customer relationship management & e-commerce system can be hosted on DS213 by using Web Station with support for PHP/MySQL® web content.

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 which 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. High-end features previously available only on enterprise level hardware are now accessible via Synology DS213 to small and medium-sized businesses. 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 92×92 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 cost.

All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen to continually work to reduce the environmental impact of every product produced.
