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 which allows 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 Synology 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 Synology DS118 Dubai 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 Synology DS118 Dubai 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, its noise dampening design of 16.7 dB(A) 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.
