Synology DS116 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for small offices and workgroup environments, the DiskStation DS116 1-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology allows users to share and synchronize files across multiple devices and public cloud storage services from virtually anywhere, while also helping to boost work productivity and enhance team collaboration. It is equipped with one drive bay that is capable of natively supporting 3.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s and SATA II 3 Gb/s hard drives. Using a separately sold adapter, it is also able to support 2.5" SATA III and SATA II hard drives and SSDs. Using its single drive bay, this NAS will allow you to store and share a large number of files, including videos, music, photos, and documents with up to 2,048 user accounts.

The DS116 runs on Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Its CPU is a 1.8 GHz Marvell Armada 385 88F6820 Dual-Core (32-bit) and its 1GB of DDR3 RAM allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving read speeds of up to 112.53 MB/s and write speeds up to 111.41 MB/s in a Windows environment, while its dedicated hardware encryption engine powers read speeds of 112 MB/s and write speeds of 93 MB/s. It features two USB 3.0 ports which allows it to be connected to your Windows, Mac, or Linux system. Network connectivity is achieved via the integrated Gigabit Ethernet port, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network. Data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android applications.

Using the integrated media server on the DS116, 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 compatible device to enjoy your favorite movies or shows stored on the DiskStation.

The DS116 is also engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer a 60 x 60mm fan with smart airflow design to keep the system running cool at all times, its noise dampening design of 16.4 dB(A) makes for quiet operation. The server supports numerous scheduled power on / off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses.

The Synology DiskStation DS116 1-Bay NAS Enclosure operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, a 36W AC power adapter, and a LAN cable. It is protected by a limited 2-year warranty.
