Network Attached Storage - DS-101g+ SATA Edition *EOL* Print

This device provides a plug-and-play external storage to network users with access control for a very low price. It can be installed anywhere on the local area network via a standard Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 RJ45 port. Yet the performance is better than a SCSI RAID or non-RAID system attached to the network fileserver or any desktop PC on the network serving as a common storage. The system administration sets up storage allocations to users via a web-based front-end on any PC. More interestingly, the system administration can set up this storage to act as a backup server and a USB printer server! This device supports only Windows and Macintosh desktops and notebooks, covering 99% of the population. The automatic backup function applies to Windows only. The storage size can be increased easily by attaching 1, 2 or up to 3 hard disks via the USB interfaces. The device supports up to 128 registered users and up to 32 concurrent accesses. 

Note: This model is end-of-life

Small Office and Home Office

Small business users, such as accountants, art designers, dentists, lawyers, and real-estate brokers often store years of valuable client information on their Windows or Mac PC hard drives without doing any backup or redundancy. However, chances are that all the business data might be lost someday and cause users a great trouble. DS-101g+ Disk Station allows Windows and Macintosh clients to store, share, backup and print files for your multiple demands.

Due to the limited budget of small office/home office (SOHO) and home users, it is hard to choose a server at an affordable cost yet with high performance and expandability. SOHO users might also consider factors, such as being easy to install and manage, reliable, noiseless, supporting to multiple functions, scalable, able to serve as a print server, and direct input provided. Here Synology are happy to tell you that with DS-101g+ Disk Station, you are already embracing these benefits mentioned above.
