Running on DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, it delivers ease of use and a variety of features.
Multimedia Center at Home
DS212j brings innovative and enjoyable multimedia entertainment to your home. Enjoy sound and sensation while enriching your life with personal online albums and blog services. Your social life just gets better. The iPad, iPhone and Android App, DS audio, allows DiskStation users to stream music stored on DiskStation with their mobile devices wherever Internet access is available.
Media Server allows you to stream multimedia files with an UPnP Digital Media Adapter (DMA) to a stereo system or a TV-set. Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft XBox 360 are also supported.
iTunes Server is an easy way to share music with other iTunes clients over the network. You can use iTunes as a multimedia player to browse and play music stored on your Synology DiskStation.
Your 24x7 Download Server
Download Station functions as a 24x7 BT, FTP, HTTP, eMule, and NZB download center without a PC. The eMule & BT search engine allows search-n-download capability without installing additional desktop applications.
RSS feed feature will bring the latest updates directly to you. You can subscribe to multiple RSS feeds that list the information of all your favorite downloads, and your download experience is entirely automated.
Back Up Your Precious Data
Desktop backup provides Windows PC users with the Synology Data Replicator for backing up desktop data to their DiskStation, while Mac OS X users can use Apple Time Machine to back up their critical data to DiskStation.
Server backup includes several alternatives: Local Backup and Network Backup. You can back up data in shared folders or sub-folders and choose between incremental backup options or other flexible scheduling choices. All can be easily configured with a step-by-step wizard to make it simple to create an automated backup solution.
Build Your Personal Cloud
With Synology DS212j, you can centralize all the data and files and share with your family members within local network. If you find this way of managing files particularly useful and interesting, you can have your own personal cloud so the sharing coverage can be extended to the Internet.
The EZ-Internet wizard guides you through all the steps necessary to establish remote Internet access to your Synology DS212j. You will be allowed to remotely access your DS212j anywhere within minutes, and it is just that easy.
Access Files from Anywhere
Manage your files on your Synology DS212j with File Browser which provides easy file navigation on your DiskStation, allowing you to copy, move, delete, rename, upload, or download files without boundaries.
If you are always on the move, Synology provides a handy app, DS file for iPhone, iPad and Android users. Anything stored on Synology DS212j can now be accessed remotely using DS file via the Internet.
Share your Memories to Friends
