Advanced storage, tiny box: The DS414slim is small enough to fit on the palm of a hand, yet powerful enough for workgroups in businesses, with the ability to serve up to 128 active connections. The unit now includes an FPU, and twice as much RAM as its predecessor, improving overall performance in multitasking, and media processing. Most significantly, the DS414slim utilizes DSM 5.0 with its rich and extensible array of features including: media streaming, web hosting, timed backups, and photo management.

It provides easy access on Synology's diverse selection of Android, iOS, and Windows Phone applications, as well as any contemporary browser. With QuickConnect, it's always easy to get content locally, or on the move.

 

Private cloud in the palm of your hand: Included in DSM's Package Center is Cloud Station. At no additional cost, users can access and sync: files, file-type or folder no matter where they are, or what device they are working on.

 

Other notable features:

  • Up to 2048 user accounts, and 256 user groups

 

"The DS414slim is really an impressive piece of tech, said Thadd Weil, Public Relations Manager at Synology America. "From the offset, you wouldn't believe such a small device was actually a server. With DSM 5.0 to bring its components to life, the slim is a fantastic solution for businesses, creative teams, and home enthusiasts looking for compact network attached storage."
