Synology DiskStation DS213+ is a high-performance 2-bay all-in-1 NAS server for SMB users. Offering high-performance, energy efficiency, and full list of business features in a network attached storage solution that helps small and medium-sized businesses centralize backup, protect critical assets and share files quickly and efficiently.
Dual Core Performance with Smart Energy Management
With Dual Core processing power, Synology DS213+ delivers an average 84.31 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment, and 110.36 MB/sec reading1. The built-in Floating-Point Unit makes for faster thumbnail processing to enhance photo viewing at different resolutions. 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.
Synology DS213+ delivers high performance when needed, but during low activity level it also uses very small amount of power. During System Hibernation mode, DS213+ consumes only 2.6 watts of power to listen for network activities, and resumes back to operation in very short amount of time upon demand. Compared to shutting off the whole system, System Hibernation brings a closer balance between smart energy management and system responsiveness.
Fit to Business Environment
Comprehensive network protocol support assures seamless file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. Windows ADS and LDAP integration allows the Synology DS213+ 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.
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/MySQ web content.
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 or eSATA 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.
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 setup to use right away.
Energy Efficient with Cool and Quiet Design
Synology DS213+ is designed with energy efficiency in mind. Not only does it provide a 92x92 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 multiple scheduled power on/off and System 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.

Still not really suitable for actual real time photography post processing, But for the recall of the storage of thousands of photographs music videos etc it works well. It has crashed ( hung) a few times while streaming to a Samsung Smart PVR. Codecs are not recognized?
I do have another WD streaming box i am going to experiment with instead.
I miss the the white colour of my previous model, shame there is no choice of colour on this model. As of writing your choice is anything as long as it is black.!
I ordered my unit form Amazon and arrived in less than 48 hours of ordering. My main issues, whilst setting the system up, were nothing to do with the NAS; more to do with Network Issues and my VirginMedia Superhub. In the end I deactivated the SuperHub as a router and changed it into Modem Mode (Which gives you an IP Address of 192.168.100.1 – Not 192.168.1.1 as you’d expect) I connected the device to my wireless router and I ran the supplied software on a Mac (works on a Windows/Linux too) and it saw the device straight away. I accessed the control panel from a web browser and logged in with the details supplied and I was up and running. The drive setup commenced and I went with the default values. I used the Router Configuration software to enable the ports to be opened on the router, so it could talk to the outside world, and away I went. I obtained a free domain name using DYN.org so I could connect remotely without having to remember my IP Address. I also used the DNS updater in the control panel so that it would regularly update my domain name with dyn.org.
Since then I’ve linked to the NAS with a PC running Windows 8, Windows 7, Mac , Android Tablet and iPad, they all work great. Just search the App Store and Android Store for Synology and you’ll see several free apps. The ability to share photographs is great. I’ve also tried setting up virtual websites, which work like a dream. FTP is fantastic and with all this going on the NAS still runs smoothly with hardly any load on the CPU / RAM. The DSN 4.1 Interface is controlled via a Web Browser and is a joy to use. I would thoroughly recommend this NAS. The device has a load of capabilities and there are enough applications supplied to fulfill these.
I've only had it less than 12 hours and everything is now set up perfectly including a website and a mail server, ftp, photo sharing etc. etc. etc.
After some research I decided on the Synology and, boy, am I glad I did. The difference between the old and the new is STARK. It is super-quiet, was dead easy to set-up on the network, is extremely fast and has lots of additional downloads to create a media server, iTunes server, etc. The web-based user-interface is functionally rich and a massive improvement over the Freecom's outdated GUI. There is not a single piece of information I can think of that isn't available on the dashboard.
A brilliant product overall.
