High Performance Dual Core CPU

With dual core CPU and Link Aggregation, Synology DS713+ keeps up with the speed of your business with 202.3 MB/sec reading and 135.84 MB/sec writing speed under RAID1 configuration in a Windows environment.1 For back up onto external hard drives, Super-Speed USB 3.0 ports provide ten times the transfer speed of its predecessor. Dual-LAN failover support and hot-swappable drives ensure continual service uptime during drive replacement or unexpected LAN failure.

Straightforward RAID-Management

Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) automatically optimizes RAID capacity and protection based on hard drives installed, eliminating the need for identical sizes while retaining custom setup options for advanced users. Multiple Volumes on RAID allows for more than one volume to be created on a single RAID structure, giving you flexibility across all available drives. Volumes can be expanded as necessary by allocation on the easy-to-use UI, and Synology’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) does the rest without any service interruption.

Flexible Scalability Up To 28 TB

When the storage capacity of DS713+ nears its limit, upgrading is easy with Synology DX513 expansion unit.2 Connected via eSATA with specially designed locking devices, DX513 expands storage capacity up to a maximum of 28 TB with minimal time-investment in setup and configuration.

Virtualization Ready

Fully compliant with VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V, with iSCSI and VAAI support, DS713+ is the most affordable virtualization storage solution of its kind, allowing SMB users to consolidate data storage while giving the illusion of locally attached disks.

Cross-Platform Interoperability

DS713+ runs Synology’s award-winning DiskStation Manager (DSM) – an easy-to-operate OS which can be customized to include applications of your choice to fulfill your requirements.

Within your business environment, extensive network protocol support provides seamless cross-platform file sharing between Windows, Mac OS and Linux. Windows® AD and LDAP integration allows DS713+ to fit into existing business network infrastructure without having to recreate user accounts, while Windows ACL allows IT personnel to set up privileges to files and folders through familiar Windows UI, delivering peace of mind with simplicity.

Easy Backup Solutions

To protect your critical business data, DS713+ can become a centralized backup target for consolidating fragmented and unstructured information across your network through a range of options. PC users can backup to DS713+ with Synology’s Data Replicator, while DS713+ also fully supports Mac OS X’s native Apple Time Machine. Synology’s own backup wizard can back up information to another Synology NAS or any rsync server, with the option of using an encrypted connection, or to an external hard drive via USB 3.0 or eSATA. The wizard can also back up your information to the cloud, including Amazon® S3 and STRATO HiDrive.

Multi-Purpose Packages

Additional functions in the form of one-click-installation packages allow your DS713+ to take the place of other hardware. VPN Server turns your DiskStation into a Virtual Private Network server, providing secure access to your private LAN from remote locations. Surveillance Station creates a centralized interface for the management of IP cameras. Additional approved 3rd party PHP web application featuring tools such as content management, customer relationship management & e-commerce systems can be hosted on DS713+ by using Web Station with support for PHP/MySQL® web content.

Energy Efficient Design

Synology DiskStations are designed and developed with energy efficiency in mind. Compared with its average PC counterpart, Synology DS713+ consumes relatively little power at 30.7 watts while operating. Wake on LAN/WAN and scheduled power on/off features can further reduce power consumption and operation costs. HDD hibernation can be configured to take effect automatically when the system has been inactive for a specified period of time to save energy and extend hard disk life. All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology acknowledges the responsibility of a global citizen and works continually to reduce the environmental impact of every product.
