Synology America Corp. today announced the release of their first DiskStation with built-in wireless support, the DS213air.  The new two-bay addition to the DiskStation family comes on the heels of Synology’s new Web Assistant, designed to simplify the installation process.

“The release of the DS213air is the next step on Synology’s path to simplify access to their invaluable data,” said Jason Bonoan, Product Marketing Manager at Synology America Corp.  “When combined with the new Web Assistant, users can now set up and manage their DiskStations from mobile devices.”

The DS213air is designed for both home and small office use, and ships with Synology’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) 4.1 operating system.  The integrated wireless adapter can be used to join an existing wireless network or even to create a new one by acting as a wireless hotspot.  The wireless hotspot allows for simplified file sharing without requiring additional hardware, making it an ideal solution for remote sites (such as construction sites).

DSM offers a suite of built-in applications and available packages to help users get the most from their systems.  Home and business users alike will appreciate the built-in backup capabilities, from Data Replicator 3 for Windows-based systems to support for Time Machine for Macs.

Capabilities include (but are not limited to):

•             The media server package allows for streaming photos, music, and videos to media players on the network

•             Cloud Station allows users to easily keep files in sync between laptops, workstations, iOS devices, and the DiskStation

•             Quick Connect allows sending direct download links to users without the need for port forwarding

•             Surveillance Station allows the DiskStation to quickly become a Network Video Recorder (NVR)

Synology America Corp. is pleased to announce the release of its newest twelve-bay DiskStation, the DS2413+.  Along with the DX1211 expansion module, it can scale up to 24 drives for up to 96TB storage in your choice of Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) or classic RAID, making it an ideal answer to the growing data storage needs of today’s photographers.  The DS2413+ is Synology’s first 12-bay system to incorporate USB 3.0 for improved transfer speeds to and from external disks.

“The DS2413+ can easily scale its storage to keep pace with even the most prolific photographers,” said Marivel Espinoza, Product Marketing Manager at Synology America Corp.  “Unlike other storage solutions aimed at photographers, this one offers excellent performance with Synology’s well-known reliability, while remaining network attached, so there are no issues with proprietary connectors.”

Sheer storage capacity aside, the DS2413+ ships with Synology’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) 4.1.  DSM 4.1 brings a number of photographer-friendly features to the table.

•             Shared Folder Sync allows keeping folders in sync between DiskStations to minimize downtime

•             Support for both Mac and Windows backups

•             Photo Station allows for easily sharing photos

•             The Media Server package allows for streaming photos, videos, and music to DLNA-compliant televisions or media players

•             Synology’s new Web Assistant makes it easier than ever to get started

Additionally, the DS2413+ is well-suited for business environments:

•             VAAI support for improved VMware support

•             LUN backup software included at no additional cost

•             ADS support for domains up to 100,000 users/groups

•             Time Backup package allows for point-in-time backups
