Published by


Synology offers you their latest 2-bay NAS server, the DiskStation DS214. Designed for SMB & SOHO users, this compact NAS server is equipped with a 1.066GHz dual-core processor.

It has 512MB DDR3 RAM, two 2.5-/3.5-inch SATA HDD/SSD bays (up to 8TB), 1x USB 2.0 port, 2x USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, a built-in 92mm cooling fan and supports for multiple RAID setups (0,1) as well as JBOD. The DS214 is now shipping globally.

ynology DS214 is in the best cost/value ratio, but everything else is in the extreme. Synology DS214 delivers outstanding read/write performance, an average over 100 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows® environment, and over 110 MB/sec reading.1 The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail processing, making photo viewing a refreshingly new experience. The Synology DS214 is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads the encryption calculation task away from the main CPU, helping to improve file transfer speeds of the DiskStation.

Designed with both safety and convenience in mind, DS214 contains the brand new tool-less hard drive trays, allowing users to fixate 3.5” hard drives without a screwdriver. Meanwhile, DS214 also supports hot-swappable hard drive trays, enabling instant and risk-free hard disk replacement. External storage access is made fast and easy, with two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interfaces in the back, alongside one USB 2.0 interface in the front panel for quick access.

Running on Synology’s award-winning DSM operating system, DS214 shares the rich reservoir of applications available in DSM Package Center.
