Synology releases NAS server for small office use

Data storage firm Synology yesterday released the DiskStation DS213j, a two-bay NAS server designed for data sharing at home or in small offices.

The DS213j can deliver read and write speeds of more than 100MB/s and 70MB/s respectively, and is now shipping globally.

The product comes with 512MB of RAM, for particularly intensive applications, and features several energy-saving attributes, such as support for Wake on LAN/WAN, hard drive hibernation and multiple scheduled power on/off. Under full operation, it consumes 20 Watts or less.

Chad Jiang, Product Manager at Synology, said "With advanced hardware integration the DS213j is designed to work as an efficient private cloud for home and small office users, letting them access their stored data with ease."

The DS213j runs on DiskStation Manager, and also packs a built-in Floating-Point Unit CPU.

The server is designed with discretion in mind, featuring side ventilation openings and rubber washers on hard drive holders, so it should also reduce noise and vibration levels.

Back in February, Synology introduced the DS2413+, a NAS drive capable of storing up to 48TB.
