Synology® Debuts Embedded DataStation EDS14
Delivering durability and reliability in a compact form factor
Milton Keynes, United Kingdom—29th April 2014—Synology® today introduced Embedded DataStation EDS14, a palm-sized, state-of-the-art NAS server combining durability with reliability, implementing Synology’s advanced network storage solutions in a wide range of application scenarios.
“Designed to survive extreme conditions and harsh environments, the EDS14 is vibration-resistant and complies with the industrial thermal endurance level from -20˚C to 50˚C,” said Chad Chiang, Product Manager at Synology Inc. “Its drive-less design and the support for high-speed SDXC UHS-I SD storage and USB 3.0 further maximise system reliability with performance and capacity.”
Synology EDS14 measures at 125 x 125 x 31mm, nearly 70% smaller than an ordinary 2-bay NAS server, and is particularly suitable for areas where space is a challenge. Despite the compact physical size, the EDS14 makes no compromise in reliability by engineering the dynamic cooling mechanisms to ensure CPU health in challenging thermal environments.
Optimised for deployment in a variety of environments, the EDS14 can tolerate dynamic DC input voltage from 7 to 24V, is compatible with PoE splitters, and supports 3G/LTE. The EDS14 even comes with a schedulable DC output to power peripheral devices, making it a good fit for versatile deployment.
The EDS14 is capable of handling data downloads at 111.77 MB/s in a Windows® environment. By accommodating dual LAN ports with failover support, it maximises network service uptime while optimising bandwidth utilisation.
Synology EDS14 is pre-installed with DiskStation Manager (DSM), an intuitive operating system that provides a host of applications to bring better productivity at work and offer a new level of multimedia experience. Synology was honored with “PCMag Business Choice Award 2013” and received the highest rating in every element of the survey, including reliability, overall satisfaction, value, and likelihood to recommend.
