Effortless File Backup

The Synology DS211 offers a centralized backup target to consolidate fragmented and unstructured data across a network. PC Users can back up their data to the Synology DS211 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 DS211 to another Synology DiskStation or any rsync server via an encrypted transmission, or to an external hard drive via USB connection. In addition, backing up to the cloud using Amazon® S3 service is also supported.

Eco Friendly

Synology DiskStation is designed and developed perpetually with the concept of energy saving. Compared with average PC counterparts, Synology DS211 consumes a relatively low amount of power in operation (22W) and has the HDDs hibernate when not in use (10.8W). This not only helps to save energy but also extends the lifespan of the hard disk. Unique Scheduled Power On/Off feature, and the smart fan design effectively cools down the system with minimum power consumption, yet keeps the system quiet on operation.

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.
