Synology DS218 Dubai
The Synology DS218 Dubai 2-Bay NAS Enclosure is designed for small offices and home users. It 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 engage in real-time 4K H.265 video transcoding. Synology DS218 Dubai is equipped with two drive bays that are capable of natively supporting 3.5″ SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5″ SATA hard drives and SSDs. Using its dual drive bays, 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 DS218 Dubai runs on Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Its CPU is a 1.4 GHz Realtek RTD1296 Quad-Core, and its 2GB of DDR4 RAM allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving sequential read and write speeds of up to 112 MB/s, while a dedicated hardware transcoding engine can transcode 10-bit 4K H.265 video on-the-fly. Also featured on the Synology DS218 Dubai are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and one USB 2.0 Type-A port, which 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 DS218, 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.
For those who require RAID support, the Synology DS218 Dubai supports RAID 0 and 1, as well Synology Hybrid RAID and Basic RAID, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available, allowing each drive bay to be individually utilized.
