Synology introduces DS120j – one-bay NAS
Synology, a well-known manufacturer of network solutions, has launched a new, small NAS storage. DiskStation DS120j is to be a good choice for personal cloud and simple data management. The company has also updated the Active Backup for Business package.
NAS servers are mainly associated with devices used in business. But the data we use every day at home, on smartphones or computers are as important to us as company files. That's why NAS for the family has appeared in Synology's offer. DS120j is a one-bay storage device enabling file sharing to all home devices. –The DS120j server is easy to configure and allows users to back up photos and videos to mobile devices – said Michael Wang, Product Manager at Synology Inc. –DS120j includes many universal Synology software features at an affordable price, making it a better choice compared to unmanaged external storage devices.
Synology's QuickConnect feature lets you securely access files anywhere, anytime without complicated network configurations. This NAS operates under the control of a Marvel Armada 3700 800 MHz dual-core processor and 512 MB DDR3L memory. It will fit a 2.5 or 3.5-inch drive with a maximum capacity of 16 TB. We also connect external drives to it via the USB port. Under full operating conditions, the server downloads 9.81 W.
In addition, DS120j allows you to stream and play media and create as well as store multiple backup versions. It also supports Mac Time Machine. The suggested retail price for the device is 86 euros (approx. 366 PLN).
Synology also announced an update to Active Backup for Business 2.1. Users of compatible NAS can now back up an unlimited number of computers, physical servers, or virtual machines running on VMare and Hyper-V 2016 and 2019 platforms. Improvements will also include support for an event-initiated backup (e.g., lock the PC screen). All functionality is available at the price of the device, without the need to purchase additional licenses. You can read more about the package at manufacturer's website. | allthingsblogging.com
