Embedded DataStation EDS14

Palm-sized NAS server for rigorous environments

Synology® Embedded DataStation EDS14 is a state-of-the-art compact NAS server. Combining portability with endurance, EDS14 allows you to implement Synology's advanced network storage solutions in a wide range of physical locations. Pre-installed with DSM 5.0, EDS14 is ready-to-use right out of the box.

Optimal performance, compact body

Despite its small size, EDS14 is powered by a 1.2GHz CPU and 512MB of RAM, ensuring both computing and multi-tasking capabilities. For a model dependent upon external drives, EDS14 delivers remarkable read/write performance - up to 111.76 MB/sec reading and 57.23 MB/sec writing speeds with a USB 3.0 drive in a Windows® environment, as well as 77.93 MB/sec reading and 45.65 MB/sec writing speeds with a UHS-I SDXC card.

Thermal durability and dynamic DC input for harsh environments

The dynamic cooling mechanism guarantees an industrial thermal endurance level from -20˚C to 50˚C (-4˚F to 122˚F). In addition, EDS14 tolerates dynamic DC input voltage from 7 to 24V, making it compatible with a variety of power sources, such as the cigarette lighter socket in your car.

Fan-less and drive-less design reduces vibration

EDS14 features a compact, fan-less, and drive-less design that lowers the chance of hardware failure resulting from vibrations, while also delivering higher durability and reliability. Being EN50155-certified, EDS14 delivers resistance to shock, vibration, and harsh environments found in moving vehicles and railway industries.

Maximizing capacity with rich I/O

EDS14 comes with two LAN ports, one SD card reader, one USB 3.0, and one USB 2.0 interface - all inside a 125 x 125 x 31 mm enclosure. EDS14 supports the latest external storage interfaces - USB 3.0 and SDXC/UHS-I - maximizing both speed and capacity with the compatibility of various file systems.

Dual LAN ports and 3G/4G support maximizing network uptime

Equipped with two LAN ports, EDS14 protects local network tasks and Internet connection from mutual interference. With support for PoE splitters, EDS14 is also ideal for deployment in a PoE environment. In addition, support for mobile networks (3G or 4G modems required) brings EDS14 farther into remote locations.

Schedulable DC output to power external device

A schedulable DC output of up to 1A is available to power an external device where power outlets are out of reach. Peripheral devices can be powered on, off, or reset remotely according to a schedule using DiskStation Manager 5.0 management interface.

Installed Award Winning OS - DiskStation Manager
