The Synology DS411slim is designed to work with 2.5” hard drives. The low power consumption characteristic of 2.5” hard drives will lower your electricity bill, as well as reduce your carbon footprint. In addition, 2.5” hard drives have reduced vibration, increased MTBF (mean time before failure), and shock tolerance. It not only extends hard drive’s lifespan, but also provides better reliability. The smart fan design keeps the DS411slim’s fan off under normal operations and spinning up at a very low speed only when needed, thus minimizing the noise level.
Flexible RAID Management
The Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) automatically builds an optimal RAID volume with data protection based on the hard drives installed, eliminating the need to have hard drives of identical size, while still offering a manual setup option for advanced users.
Cross Platform File Sharing & Backup
Synology DiskStation is designed for data storage and sharing among Windows, Mac, and Linux. Seamless file sharing across different operation systems is an effortless process. Internet file access is simplified by the encrypted FTP server, the web-based File Browser and File Station. HTTPS, firewall, and IP auto-block support ensure file sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level.
The Synology DS411slim offers a centralized backup target to consolidate fragmented and unstructured data across a network. PC Users can back up their data to the Synology DS411slim using the free Synology Data Replicator software, while Mac OS X users enjoy native Apple® Time Machine integration.
A web-based backup wizard is provided for backing up data in the Synology DS411slim to another Synology DiskStation or any rsync server via an encrypted transmission, or to an external hard drive via USB or eSATA connection. In addition, backing up to the cloud using Amazon® S3 service is also supported.
Your Own Entertainment Center
Download Station functions as a 24x7 BitTorrent, FTP, HTTP, eMule, and NZB download center without a PC. The eMule download engine allows search-n-download capability with a web-browser without installing additional desktop applications.
Audio Station supports music, Internet radio stations, and iPod playback with the optional speakers. An optional direction-free Synology Remote allows you to freely enjoy your music. Streaming mode allows your music to be shared with multiple users over the Intranet or Internet.
DLNA/UPnP Compliant Media Sever allows you to stream multimedia files with an UPnP Digital Media Adapter (DMA) to a stereo system or a TV-set. Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox360 are also supported.
iTunes® Server is an easy way to share music with other iTunes clients over the network. Password protection prevents unauthorized sharing.
Synology DiskStation is designed and developed perpetually with the concept of energy saving. Compared with average PC counterparts, Synology DiskStation consumes a relatively low amount of power and hibernates when not in use. This not only helps to save energy but also extends the lifespan of the hard disk.
Synology DiskStation truly earns the title of “green product” because of the unique Scheduled Power On/Off feature.
Finally, all Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology recognizes its responsibility as a global citizen and is continually working to reduce the environmental impact of the products we create.
