File- or folder-level data restoration accelerates data recovery, providing more flexibility for businesses
Automatic file self-healing detects and recovers corrupted files without user intervention
 

Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) technology
Storage management is easy with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) technology. SHR is an automated RAID management system allowing you to easily create and expand storage volumes and migrate RAID types without requiring details on RAID. SHR provides 1 to 2-disk redundancy to safeguard your data during drive failures.

Cost-effective
SHR maximizes the data capacity of your RAID when different sizes of HDDs are used. Calculate your RAID needs.

Easy Management
For novice users who have no technical background and still want to protect their data using RAID technology, a convenient installation wizard will guide you through all the steps during your first installation.

Scalability
You can add new disks on the fly in Storage Manager with a simple click..

Flexibility
While creating a volume, you can plan ahead and leave empty and unallocated space for future usage.


Easy file access with QuickConnect
Access files on your Synology NAS over the Internet without the hassle of setting up port forwarding rules, DDNS, or other complicated network settings. QuickConnect allows you to connect via a simple customizable address (e.g. https://customID.quickconnect.to), so that you can instantly access media and work files on any Windows/Mac/Linux computer, laptop, or mobile device without additional charge.
