Synology DS218 DiskStation

It is a high-performing and cutting-edge NAS solution designed for effective management, protection, and sharing of data across multiple devices and platforms.

Optimal Performance

Equipped with a 64-bit quad-core processor and 2GB memory, DS218 Synology is capable of offering high sequential throughput performance well above 112 MB/s reading and 112 MB/s writing.

High-End Video Station

It is optimized with 10-bit 4K H.265 video transcoding through Video Station. This optimization allows you to organize video content efficiently and systematically. In addition, you can also stream 4K video content on various devices such as computers, smartphones, video players, and TVs.

What’s more, if your device is not compatible with 4K resolution, Synology DS 218 provides an online 4K video transcoding for both 1080p and lower resolution to provide a seamless and immersive video-watching experience.

Seamless Cross-Platform File Sharing

The compatibility with multiple and comprehensive network protocols allows network administrators to share files across platforms and devices.

Windows AD and LDAP

Windows AD and LDAP help you to integrate DiskStation DS218 with any network without any need to create user accounts.

Cloud Station Suite

Cloud Station Suite, another major feature of Synology DS 218, helps you to sync your files seamlessly and effortlessly across various devices such as Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and Linus.

DS218 DiskStation: Cloud Sync

Likewise, Cloud Sync helps you synchronize Google™ Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Baidu, and Dropbox with your DiskStation DS device.

What’s more, Synergy has added built-in security features to protect the sharing and managing files such as default firewalls, and auto-blocking mechanisms against account intrusions and other threats.

Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM)

The NAS device runs on the award-winning Synology DiskStation Manager operating system. SDM is an award-winning OS and is known for offering a user-friendly interface and powerful capabilities.

You can deploy and run multiple applications on DSM for various ends such as backing up data, streaming multimedia content, running web browsers, and the like.

Synology DS218: Robust Backup Solution

DS218 from Synergy comes with reliable backup features. It is equipped with Hyper Backup that supports block-level incremental backup and cross-version duplication. This device ensures the storage of data on multiple locations such as external hard drives, network shared folders, public cloud services, and local shared folders, among others.

Energy Efficient NAS Solution

More importantly, this NAS device from Synergy is designed in a way to minimize energy consumption. It only consumes 14.99 W in regular operation which is an impressive feat in itself. 

In addition, other energy-efficient features such as Wake on LAN/WAN and scheduled power on/off help the device to further minimize energy footprint. Lastly, HDD Hibernation is also a major energy-saving mode because it forces the Hard Drive to go into hibernation mode when the system has been idle for some specific time.


Looking for Network Attached Storage (NAS) or other backup & storage devices? You are at the right place. Our storage & backup solution experts work in close collaboration with Synergy, and QNAP, among others, to help our customers find NAS solutions that are cutting-edge and cost-efficient.
