Synology DS216j overview

  • 1Description

Designed for home and personal users, the DiskStation DS216j 2-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology will help you build a personal cloud, while also offering data sharing, multimedia streaming, and cloud synchronization. It is equipped with two drive bays that are capable of supporting 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III (6 Gb/s) and SATA II (3 Gb/s) hard drives. The DS216j supports up to 1,024 user accounts and up to 128 maximum concurrent CIFS/AFP/FTP/File Station connections.

The DS216j runs the Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. The NAS server is powered by a 1.0 GHz Marvell Armada 385 88F6820 Dual-Core processor and 512MB of DDR3 RAM. The NAS is capable of achieving read speeds of over 112.75 MB/s and write speeds of over 97.6 MB/s when configured as a RAID 1, with Basic, Synology Hybrid, RAID 0, and JBOD also supported. Also featured are two USB 3.0 ports which allow it to be connected to your Windows, Mac, or Linux system. Internet connectivity is achieved via the included Gigabit Ethernet port, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network. Windows AD and LDAP integration allows the DS216j to fit into almost any existing network environment. File sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level with the HTTPS, firewall, and IP auto-block mechanisms, while data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android apps.

Using the integrated media server on the DS216j, you have the ability to stream digital multimedia content from the DiskStation to media devices for local or remote playback. You may also stream movies and music to a DLNA/UPnP compatible device to enjoy your favorite movies or shows stored on the DiskStation. Supported devices include the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

The DS216j is able to serve as a centralized backup target for all the computers in your home. Windows users can back up data to the DS216j via Windows Backup, while Mac OS X users will be able to take advantage of native Apple Time Machine integration. You have the ability to set the backup destination to not only be local hard disks, but also connected USB drives.

The DS216j is also engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer a 92 x 92mm fan and smart airflow to keep the system running cool at all times. The server supports numerous scheduled power on / off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses. The DS216j operates on 100-240 VAC. It includes an accessory pack, an AC adapter, an AC power cord, and an Ethernet cable.

The Cloud Station Suite allows you to sync files among multiple devices - Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, or Android tablets/phones - keeping everything up-to-date. While you enjoy the seamless file sharing, all the file sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level with the HTTPS, firewall, and IP auto-block mechanisms
