  • 1Description

The DiskStation DS411 from Synology is a high-performance, 4-bay NAS backup and server solution for workgroups and offices. It features a fast 1.6 GHz processor, 512 MB of DDR3 RAM, two USB 2.0 ports and a super-fast eSATA connection. For those looking to operate surveillance cams, it offers support for up to twelve IP cams at up to 120 FPS (Frames Per Second).

While no drives are included with the DS411, it supports a max capacity of 16TB with either four 2.5" or 3.5" SATA hard disk or solid state drives. Additionally, this DiskStation can configure drives as a JBOD, RAID 0 or RAID 1, depending on whether you want faster data transfers or more secure data.

With the included Gigabit LAN port, you can connect the DiskStation to your router and access it locally on your network. The DiskStation also includes an EZ-Internet Wizard for setting it up from the web. To facilitate ease of use between different operating systems, this DiskStation supports cross-platform file sharing between Ubuntu, Mac and Windows computers.

Ever-versatile, this DiskStation can function as a mail server, as it supports Outlook-like Web mail, SMTP, POP3 and IMAP. In addition, the Synology Web Station Virtual Host option allows users to host up to 30 websites on a single DS411. The built-in PHP+MySQL capability allows users to create interactive websites without complicated settings.

When it comes to backing up your data, you can save from Windows or Mac computers to the DiskStation. Windows users can use Synology Data Replicator 3 while Mac users can enjoy native Mac OS X Time Machine support.

As if that wasn't enough, the DiskStation can function as a variety of different servers, whether you need it to store and stream photos, video, audio or data within your office or over the internet. You can also use it as a server for FTP, Mail, UPnP media devices, printing, iTunes, hosting websites, operating surveillance webcams or downloading bit torrent, http, FTP, NZB or eMule files.
