The DiskStation by Synology is a famous NAS server solution for your home, allowing the installation of additional package. Synology is dedicated to providing DiskStation NAS that offers RAID storage, storage for virtualization.

The Synology DiskStation is the network attached storage (NAS) appliance which is produced to run the Synology DSM OS. The DiskStation is a pedestal/tower embedded NAS appliance, which ranges from one bay to as many as twelve bays within a single enclosure. Some models feature storage scalability, where physical units may be tethered together for additional storage, without the need for volume recreation or loss of availability.

I have a few products that I’d like to review, the Synology DiskStation

  • DS115j
  • DS118

Basically, I’ll be discussing would be few difference in functions of these DiskStation:

DS115j: The Synology DS115 may seem small in size, but it’s got big capabilities.

With a built-in floating-point unit, DS115j transcodes audio tracks into MP3 format on demand to reduce streaming bandwidth and speeds up thumbnail generation to yield a refreshing photo viewing experience. The DS115j also packs in rich external interfaces, offering USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports alongside the eSATA connector. That allows communications with external storage, while the USB ports also support connecting a variety of devices including Bluetooth receivers, wireless dongles, and DTV tuners to maximize the additional value you can get from the DS115j. With an abundance of applications, the DS115j turns your hard drive into a versatile storage server, which acts not only as your private cloud to access files anywhere, but also as a backup device, online photo album, local copy of your public cloud, 24/7 download portal, and so much more.
