The software is based on BusyBox, it has an AJAX web user interface that simulates a desktop environment.
I installed DSM 5.2 onto it (latest at the time) and it is nice, basic, but it is an entry level NAS box so this is to be expected.
To really get the best of a NAS you really need at LEAST gigabit (cat 5e/6a cables) ethernet router/wifi (802.11 ac) otherwise it will go very slow moving files about due to 100 Mbps being slower than USB file transfers. USB 2.0 gives up to 480 Mbps (USB 3.0 goes faster) so with 1,000 Mbps to improve on USB transfers. You do get networkability of your storage. Whether it is for replicated backups, media serving or whatever. DSM has other applications available but running them on a "storage" server (NAS) is rather, questionable, useful for those that want to offload tasks but I prefer to have storage, for the purpose of storage rather than other activities.
DSM supports encrypted storage BUT it is worthless because 1) it is file based (very slow) rather than block level based, and 2) it will not export over NFS (that means Linux users have to use SMB which is slower). Samba on Windows only allows ONE user credentials per desktop session so you cannot have shares with different credentials online at one time (but this is a Windows limitation not the NAS, it can support up to 64 concurrent user connections - apparently).
The CPU is SINGLE CORE, this really shows if you do any activity such as indexing for example. It hits 99%. The ram available is 256 MiB, this seems to be ample because it is sitting around 30% usage. The bottleneck you will find is the processor. It really needs to be updated to at least dual core and maybe faster clock.Read more ›
Cons: For anything but the basics, the complexity expands to fill your time. The "manual" is clearly written by people who are expert in computing and don't see why anyone would need more than a simple reminder of how things work, so it really needs a technical mind and lots of time to set it up and maintain it. Basically, it's a tiny, reduced-capacity, professional server. If you work in IT, setting up servers for a major corporation (I do not!), you'll get along just fine. If you're not sure about buying this, take a look at your router's advanced settings. The synology server is of similar complexity.
In the hope of not making things worse, I've listed a few things I learned while setting it up:
- First of all, the server arrives with the hard drive already installed, so there's no need to open the server's case. However, if you ever do want to open it then it helps to know that the QuickStart guide neglects to mention that you have to unscrew two screws in the plastic case (top and bottom at the back) before you can slide the case apart.
- After plugging the server (the DS115j) into your router (modem), you need to use your PC (I imagine Macs are similar...Read more ›
The DS115j is the successor to the DS112j and to all intents and purposes is a single drive version of the DS214se (same 800MHz CPU, same 256MB RAM). It has the 'classic' Synology case and styling, in white gloss plastic with the stencilled Synology logo on the side (which also helps ventilate the unit). At the back there is a Gigabit ethernet port and two USB sockets: amazingly and disappointingly these are of the old USB 2.0 specification rather than today's USB 3.0. There are a few other penny pinching measures, for instance, the unit can only take a 3.5" SATA drive (up to 6TB in capacity) and requires a separate adapter bracket to use a 2.5" drive, costing about £12-£15. In addition, the drive mount is made of relatively thin metal and flexed a bit whilst installing a drive. Also, although the DS115j will hibernate when not used for a while, there is no scheduled power-on-power-off capability for further power savings. Incidentally, the power supply is a wall mounted unit, rather than the (albeit small) power brick supplied with other models.
In use the DS115j is quiet and performs well, using DSM 5.0 or DSM 5.1 (which is at the beta stage at the time of writing). Although the hardware specification may seem very modest, DSM is very frugal and efficient.Read more ›
