DiskStation DS214+

Robust and full-fledged NAS server for SMB

Designed for multitasking applications, DS214+ offers small and medium business users high-performance, energy efficiency, and complete business features in a network attached storage solution.

DS214+

Dual core CPU with floating-point unit enhances productivity

DS214+ features a built-in floating-point unit which enhances the overall capability of the main CPU to enable higher working efficiency. With RAM twice the size of its predecessor, DS214+ exhibits a significant boost in multi-tasking performance. In addition, DS214+ delivers over 133.58 MB/s writing speed under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows® environment, and over 212.71 MB/s reading.

Dual LAN with failover and Link Aggregation support

Equipped with dual LAN ports, DS214+ ensures continual network service in case one LAN connection fails, decreasing the risk of network downtime. Link Aggregation takes advantage of the dual LAN ports to enhance connection speeds beyond the limits of a single cable or port.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 accelerates transfer rates

DS214+ optimizes your working experiences by enabling faster and more efficient data transfers. Coming with USB 3.0 support which offers transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbps (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0), DS214+ speeds up data transfer for external hard drives.

Hardware encryption engine enhances file transfer speeds

DS214+ is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads the encryption calculation task from the main CPU. Thus, the CPU is free for other important tasks, producing a considerable increase in throughput.

Easy hard drive installation and hot-swappable support

For friendly and effortless hard drive installation, DS214+ features screwless drive bay design and hot-swappable support, allowing users to install 3.5" hard drives without a screwdriver, so installing and replacing drives is easier than ever.

Fit into business environments easily

With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, DS214+ 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 DS214+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on DS214+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, DS214+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency. Learn more

All-in-One server

Offering rich office applications, DS214+ can serve as your multi-function server. With add-on packages Mail Server and Mail Station, DS214+ can become a dedicated mail server, and let you enjoy complete webmail service. DS214+ can become a VPN server or VPN client. The comprehensive VPN service let you access resources remotely while maintaining security protocols. As a printer server, DS214+ minimizes businesses' operating costs by sharing printing resources throughout the office. Administration and network tools, such as DNS Server, Directory Server, RADIUS Server, DHCP Server, and Log Center help you manage IT deployment and policies more efficiently. Maximize resource utilization with DS214+! Learn more

Increase business productivity with cloud solutions

With comprehensive cloud solutions, DS214+ 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

DS214+ 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, DS214+ 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
