Features That Make A Difference

Cost-Effective, Reliable, Expandable, and Multi-Purpose Storage

A Synology NAS does more than store data, it keeps important information safe and makes it easy to add more storage when needed. With optional software packages, a Synology NAS goes beyond storage and provides the ability to operate as a database, email server, and powerful web server, all in one device.

Storage That Grows With Your Needs

Use each Synology NAS with as few as one disk, and add more as needed. Additionally, most devices in the plus-series and above can take advantage of plug-and-play expansion units. Giving you more bays at an affordable price.

Cost-Effective Performance for Databases

For employee, customer, and financial databases, performance can be hindered by the use of standard hard disks. By implementing SSD caching, there is a cost effective way to bolster access times to the most recently and frequently requested database items by combining the performance of Solid-State Disks with traditional Hard Disk Drives.

Enterprise Reliability

High Availability provides organizations with the option to pair two identically configured Synology NAS devices in a mirrored pair. Reducing downtime by directing services from a primary server experiencing problems to a healthy device.

Optional Advanced Warranty

For XS+ and XS series Synology NAS, purchase the Advanced Warranty for a priority phone line, no questions asked replacement service, and automatic next-day shipping on replacement hardware.

Multi-Purpose Server

A Synology NAS can host websites, provide centralized login and authentication, and even provide physical security with Surveillance Station managing security cameras.


Optional packages are available to support PEAR PHP, Perl, Node.js, Mono, Python, and Ruby applications and web pages.
