Synology America Corp today introduced the DS214 single-role edition (DS214se) network attached storage (NAS) for both home enthusiasts and business users that need to perform single-roles at an affordable price. The DS214se makes the most of what an NAS is built for: remote access, file sharing, backup, and media streaming.
Optimized for single task-oriented utility, the DS214se runs Synology's DiskStation Manager 4.3 (DSM 4.3). Through its intuitive interface, the DS214se offers a multitude of options such as:
- File Station with folder link sharing – easily share data without having to set up custom permissions
- Cloud Station with selective sync – Keep files, file-types, and folders in sync across all of your devices
- Scheduled Backup – Keep local data safe from accidents
- iOS, Android, and Windows Phone support – for convenient remote access
The DS214sewas designed for users that want fast access to their data at an affordable price. It sports read performance above 100MB/s, and is fully DLNA certified as a Digital Media Server (DMS). With an MSRP of $159.99, the DS214se provides the same versatile capabilities of its DiskStation brethren through DSM.
"The DS214se is an ideal solution for users who want backup, remote access, and the benefit of Synology's DSM with its rich ecosystem," said Thadd Weil, public relations manager at Synology America Corp. "It's an advanced storage utility, that brings the private cloud down to our most affordable level ever."
The Synology DiskStation DS214se is now shipping globally, and will be available in the United States over the next couple of weeks.
