Synology DS118 DiskStation 1-Bay NAS Enclosure
Designed for small offices and home users, the DiskStation DS118 1-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology allows users to share and synchronize files across multiple devices and public cloud storage services from virtually anywhere, while also helping to boost work productivity, enhance team collaboration, and transcode 10-bit 4K H.265 video on the fly. It is equipped with one drive bay that is capable of natively supporting 3.5″ SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5″ SATA hard drives and SSDs with a drive bay adapter. Using its single drive bay, this NAS will allow you to store and share a large number of files, including videos, music, photos, and documents with up to 2048 user accounts. The DS118 runs on Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system that helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Its CPU is a 1.4 GHz Realtek RTD1296 Quad-Core and its 1GB of DDR4 RAM allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving sequential read speeds of up to 113 MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 112 MB/s, while a dedicated hardware transcoding engine can transcode 10-bit 4K H.265 video on the fly. Also featured are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports that allow it to be connected to your Windows or Mac system, and network connectivity is achieved via the integrated Gigabit Ethernet port, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network. Data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android applications. Using the integrated 4K multimedia server on the DS118, Video Station and DS video can be used to convert and play 4K videos from most computers, mobile devices, and other media players that don’t support Ultra HD formats. The DS118 is engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer a 60 x 60mm fan to help keep the system running cool at all times, but its noise-dampening design of 16.7 dB(A) also makes for quiet operations. The server supports numerous scheduled power on/off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses. The Synology DiskStation DS118 1-Bay NAS Enclosure operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, a 36W AC power adapter, and an RJ45 LAN cable. It is protected by a limited 2-year warranty.
