DiskStation DS713+

Robust & scalable NAS server for business

DS713+ provides high-performance and a straightforward approach to data-management and protection, letting you get a head start for your business. Whenever you're ready, upgrade capacity easily by adding an expansion unit.


Dual core CPU brings high performance

With dual core CPU and Link Aggregation, Synology DS713+ keeps up with the speed of your business with 225.47 MB/sec reading and 138.38 MB/sec writing speed under RAID1 configuration in a Windows environment.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 accelerates transfer rates

DS713+ optimizes your working experience by enabling faster and more efficient data transfers. When backing up to external hard drives, DS713+ comes with Super-Speed USB 3.0 ports providing ten times the transfer speed of its predecessor, reducing the time to transfer data to external hard drives.

Dual LAN with failover and Link Aggregation support

Coming with dual LAN ports with failover and Link Aggregation support, DS713+ ensures continual network service in case of LAN connection failure, avoiding possible disruption occurrences. Link Aggregation with trunking enhances connection speeds beyond the limits of any one single cable or port.

Hassle-free scalability up to 42TB

DS713+ offers hassle-free scalability up to seven drives with Synology DX513 expansion unit when the storage capacity of DS713+ nears its limit. Connected via eSATA with specially designed locking devices, DX513 expands storage capacity up to a maximum of 42TB with minimal time-investment in setup and configuration.

Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager

Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, browser-based operating system running on every DiskStation and RackStation, which makes managing your Synology NAS a breeze. Featuring an intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data smarter and simpler. Synology's Package Center lets you download and install useful add-on packages designed specifically for individual or business needs, meaning you can enjoy more entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.

Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments

DS713+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, DS713+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments. Windows ODX support speeds up data manipulation as the data transfer is offloaded. iSCSI also lets SMB users consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks. Learn more

Fit into business environments easily

With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, DS713+ enables seamless account integration. The User Home feature can automatically create a "home" folder for every user account to minimize the administrator's effort in repeatedly creating "home" folders for all accounts. Windows ACL support on DS713+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on DS713+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, DS713+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency. Learn more

Optimize storage management

With Synology's Storage Manager, DS713+ allows for flexible storage deployment and utilization. You can optimize RAID configuration with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) while providing redundant data protection. Other features such as multiple volumes on single RAID and Global Hot Spare also greatly enhance management efficiency and fit deployment of any kind. Learn more

Synology CMS (Central Management System)

For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all of them from a single point of entry. Through a simple interface, you can obtain a clear overview on resource consumption and logs, helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS can do much more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without extra configuration. Learn more

The most compatible sharing

Enjoy seamless files sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® platforms as DS713+ offers comprehensive network protocol support including FTP, SMB2, AFP, NFS and WebDAV. With Windows AD and LDAP integration, DS713+ can fit effortlessly into any existing network environment - there is no need for IT administrators to maintain two sets of credentials. You also won't worry about missing files with the Recycle Bin feature which is supported on AFP, CIFS, File Station, and WebDAV. All files deleted in a shared folder will be automatically moved into the Recycle Bin. Learn more

Effective backup solution

Synology DS713+ can serve as a centralized backup target. Whether you are a Windows or Mac user, you can back up everything on your computer directly to Synology NAS using Cloud Station. Whenever you modify a file, the changes are backed up to DS713+ automatically. Mac users also enjoy native Apple® Time Machine support. You can also back up data from your DS713+ to another DiskStation, rsync servers, external drives, or even Amazon® S3, Glacier cloud service, Microsoft Azure, SFR, and hicloud. "Backup & Replication" allows you to schedule backup tasks and restore the server to any particular point in time, while minimizing storage consumption and processing time by saving only the specific data block that has been changed between versions. Learn more

All-in-one server

With just one DS713+, it's possible to handle a vast amount of tasks. DS713+ helps your company gain a competitive edge by acting as your multi-function server. Directory Server provides LDAP service, while DNS and DHCP packages allow you to host a domain name server and automate network IP assignment at no extra cost. With Synology's Proxy Server, you can regulate content access and monitor who can access which website while saving bandwidth. You can host up to 30 websites with Web Station, safeguard the office environments with Surveillance Station, send and receive mails using your own email domain with Mail Station, share printing capability with Printer Server, make DS713+ act as a VPN server to access company’s resources remotely, and more. Learn more

Ensuring business continuity

Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. DS713+ supports Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former always mirrored to the latter. The Heartbeat mechanism detects regular "heartbeats" between the two servers. If the main server encounters unexpected downtime, the passive server immediately takes over. With multiple LAN ports, DS713+ also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure. Learn more

Increase business productivity with cloud solutions

With comprehensive cloud solutions, DS713+ lets you create your own private cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which keeps up to 32 historical versions, allowing you to restore a file back to previous version or recover deleted files. With the mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprises, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can handpick individual folders that they want to sync to different devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size. Folders synced by Cloud Station can be encrypted on DSM — no one will be able to access its content without your private key. Learn more

Secure your data

DS713+ offers advanced security measures to protect you from potential security holes. Security Advisor analyzes system settings, password strength, network preferences and removes any possible malware. AppArmor blocks malicious programs from accessing unauthorized system resources. You can also customize the trust level in Package Center to avoid installing packages from untrusted sources, safeguarding your NAS from unknown or tampered files. In addition, DS713+ provides other security add-ons, such as AES encryption, 2-Step verification, IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention. Learn more
