Built with a quad-core processor, an AES-NI hardware encryption engine, and Btrfs file system support, the DiskStation DS224+ 2-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology is a compact NAS designed to bring centralized data management to small organizations and teams. The DS224+ is equipped with two drive bays that are capable of natively supporting 3.5" SATA hard drives as well as 2.5" SATA hard drives and SSDs. Using its two drive bays, this NAS will allow you to store and share a large number of files with up to 2048 user accounts and 1500 maximum concurrent connections.

The DS224+ 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 2.0 GHz Intel Celeron J4125 Quad-Core with a burst frequency of up to 2.7 GHz, and its 2GB of DDR4 RAM, which can be upgraded to 6GB, allows frequently used files and applications to be quickly accessed.

Also featured are two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports for connecting external devices, and network connectivity is achieved via the dual integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports that support link aggregation and failover, 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. For those who require RAID support, the DS224+ supports RAID 0 and 1, as well Synology Hybrid RAID and Basic RAID, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available, allowing each drive bay to be individually utilized.

The DS224+ is engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer a 92 x 92mm fan to help keep the system running cool at all times, its noise dampening design, with a rating of 22 dBA, makes for quiet operations. The server supports numerous scheduled power on/off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses.

The Synology DiskStation DS224+ 2-Bay NAS Enclosure operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, a 60W AC power adapter, an AC power cord, and two RJ45 LAN cables. It is protected by a limited 2-year warranty.

Dual Recording to the Cloud
C2 Surveillance allows you to keep access to surveillance footage if your recording server is disabled by recording to your local server as well as the C2 cloud. End-to-end encryption protects streams against unauthorized access while low-latency recording lets you review the crucial last few seconds before the recording server was lost.
BTRFS: Advanced File System for Data Protection
The Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system that powers the DS224+ uses the advanced Btrfs file system, which safeguards your data against corruption and allows for the reversal of unintended or malicious changes through the use of snapshot technology.
