Upgrading your server does not have to be a hassle. Synology NAS devices are easy to set up, fast to deploy, and require very little human input to get started hosting your data.
A System United
Unlike a traditional PC File Server, Synology NAS software and hardware is designed to run as a unified system. It is also cross-platform with Windows, Mac, and Linux. This eliminates compatibility issues, thus saving your company time and money. The result is an elegant unified interface with powerful features and a minimal learning curve. Our heavy integration also allows for reliable alerts about any issues or problems, including hard drive RAID failure.
Fast and Easy Upgrade
Synology DiskStations offer support for access control lists (ACLs) for granular, NTFS-style permissions down to the file level. Synology offers an ACL migration guide to help new users migrate data from an existing PC file server, retaining existing ACLs. Synology File Station allows for creating and editing ACLs from within the DiskStation Manager (DSM) using Windows, Mac, and Linux clients.
Additionally, DiskStations can be joined to ADS domains (tested with up to 100,000 users and groups). The domain users and groups can be used to assign share level privileges, or even assigning ACLs.
Designed for the Growing Business
As your business grows, so does your need for data storage. Traditional PC file servers are complicated and expensive to expand. The Synology NAS offers a perfect solution. Our convenient front-loading drives are fast and easy to load. Mixing and matching different sized hard drives is a breeze with the Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR): automatic storage management provides volume expansion with either one or two disk redundancy. Synology also provides the option to use classic RAID for your convenience. There is even a RAID calculator to show you how we you can optimize your storage capacity with SHR.
Unlike other storage solutions, we offer scalable DiskStations as an option for you as your data grows. Expansion units easily connect to your main DiskStation and allow space for additional hard drives without disturbing your operating system.
Watch that Footprint
Synology’s energy efficient designs help you save energy by consuming fewer watts while in operation than the average PC counterpart. All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Best of all, the sleek design allows for the maximum number of disk drives while occupying the minimum amount of space, giving you more room for growth and expansion.
