Presto File Server License

Presto File Server is licensed by bandwidth and offers various bandwidth options to satisfy different needs.

The licenses offered by Presto File Server are scalable, and the licensed bandwidth can be accumulated on a Synology NAS.

For example, if you have activated a 50 Mbps license on a Synology NAS but wish to expand the bandwidth on the same NAS, you can purchase an additional 20 Mbps license on Presto File Server to scale the bandwidth up to 70 Mbps.  

30-Day Free Trial

For each Synology NAS, you can manually activate a one-time 30-day free trial of Presto File Server to determine the most suitable license plan for your network environment.

Perpetual License

The perpetual license allows you to use the licensed package indefinitely.

License Migration

Migrating a license from a Synology NAS to another NAS with the same license version is permanently available on Presto File Server License. A license can only be imported to one Synology NAS at a time; once imported, the license will be revoked from the original server.
