DSM Stories September 4, 2014


Synology has expanded our favorite network-attached-storage (NAS) lineup with its new DS115j DiskStation.

It may be geared towards small office and home users, but this single-bay NAS is still full-featured and runs the same version of DiskStation Manager (DSM) as the rest of the DiskStation boxes. And this is key because DSM is what truly sets Synology apart from its competition.

Use the DS115j to backup backup all of your devices, stream media, sync data across devices, backup data from your public cloud accounts (DropBox, Google Drive), and so much more. It supports drives up to 5TB from any manufacturer and up to 6TB from the Western Digital NAS-optimized Red lineup.

The DS115j is currently available from Synology and should hit Amazon shortly at the MSRP of $129.99.
