The EDS14 Mini Rugged NAS Server from Synology allows you to take your files with you on the go. The rugged design of this NAS server ensures it can withstand harsh conditions including temperatures as high as 122°F (50°C). To keep everything cool, the EDS14 features a dynamic cooling mechanism eliminating the need for a fan. Inside the EDS14 you will find a 1.2 GHz Marvel Armada 3 processor complete with 512MB of DDR3 RAM to ensure smooth operation.
On the outside of the EDS14 you can plug in USB compatible devices to either of the included USB ports. For high speed data transfers the USB 3.0 port supports data read speeds of up to 111.94 MB/s and write speeds of up to 50.58 MB/s. Additionally, you can insert either SDHC or SDXC SD memory cards into the memory card slot. The memory card slot supports data read speeds of up to 77.81 MB/s and write speeds of up to 45.4 MB/s when using an SDXC memory card.
With QuickConnect and Mobile access the EDS14 can be accessed remotely via iOS, Android, and Windows Phone based mobile devices. You can also access and share files across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. In addition to remote file access, this NAS server comes compatible with Synology's Surveillance Station application providing remote access to your IP cameras.
The Synology EDS14 features a compact and portable body, fan-less and drive-less design, and advanced network storage functionality, without sacrificing system reliability or quality of service. Synology EDS14 features imporved durability in challenging thermal environments without the ventilation of a fan. The dynamic cooling mechanism specifically programmed for EDS14 provides increased system uptime and CPU health even at surrounding temperatures as high as 122°F (50°C).
Despite its small size, EDS14 is powered by a 1.2 GHz 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 111.94 MB/s reading with USB 3.0 drive in a Windows environment, and 50.58 MB/s writing.
The advanced hardware design of the EDS14 accommodates 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 external storage interfaces including both USB 3.0 and SDXC/UHS-I, maximizing system availability with both speed and capacity.
Versatility for a Variety of Environments
Apart from the increased thermal endurance range, EDS14 tolerates dynamic DC input voltage from 7 to 24 V, making it compatible with a variety of power sources such as a cigarette lighter receptacle in an automobile. A schedulable DC output up to 1 A is available to power an external device where a power outlet is out of reach. Peripheral devices can be powered on, off, or reset remotely according to a schedule using DiskStation Manager's management interface (available from DSM 5.0). Support for mobile networks (3G or 4G modems sold separately) brings the EDS14 farther into remote locations. Equipped with two LAN ports, the EDS14 protects local network tasks and Internet connection from mutual interference. With the support for PoE (power over Ethernet) splitters, EDS14 is also ideal for deployment in a PoE environment.
EDS14 has been specifically designed to run Synology Surveillance Station. In addition to its intuitive setup, Surveillance Station features an optimized live view experience with on-screen operations, smart analytics tools like motion detection, and an alert system that sends instant notification through SMS, e-mail, Skype, and DS cam. Synology works to integrate all types of IP cameras on the market and currently supports over 2,400 IP camera models.
