Synology America Corp. introduces the DS214 single-role edition (DS214se) both for home enthusiasts and business users that need network attached storage (NAS) to perform single-roles at an affordable price. The DS214se makes the most of what an NAS is built for: remote access, file sharing, backup, and media streaming.

Optimized to be an excellent single task-oriented utility, the DS214se runs Synology's award-winning DiskStation Manager 4.3 (DSM 4.3). Through its intuitive interface, the DS214se offers a wealth of options such as:

File Station with folder link sharing – easily share data without having to set up custom permissions
Cloud Station with selective sync – Keep files, file-types, and folders in sync across all of your devices
Scheduled Backup – Keep local data safe from accidents
iOS, Android, and Windows Phone support – for convenient remote access
The DS214se was designed for users that want fast access to their data at an aggressive price. It sports read performance above 100MB/s, and is fully DLNA certified as a Digital Media Server (DMS). With an MSRP of $159.99, the DS214se provides the same versatile capabilities of its DiskStation brethren through DSM.

"The DS214se is an ideal solution for users who want backup, remote access, and the benefit of Synology's DSM with its rich ecosystem," said Thadd Weil, public relations manager at Synology America Corp. "It's an advanced storage utility, that brings the private cloud down to our most affordable level ever."
