NAS products are equal parts hardware performance and software features. One complements the other in a balanced product. You need more hardware performance to run more software features at the same time.
The Synology DS414 is a fully featured NAS with new software features supplied from the new DSM 5.0 operating system. The unit supports JBOD, RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10 on the 4 drive bays. Synology's Hybrid RAID support is also included for an easy-to-configure redundant storage system. The system supports up to 256 volumes, 10 iSCSI targets, and 10 iSCSI LUNs.
The NAS supports over two thousand user accounts in up to 256 groups with 256 shared folders. The system also accepts up to 256 concurrent connections.
The DSM 5.0 software includes a host of Synology software packages, and in the list above, we see a massive list of third-party add-on software packages that give the system extreme flexibility.
One of the most popular features for home users is media playback via DLNA and streaming.
The operating system is a window-based system, so the interface is easy to navigate.
Moving from one area to the next is easy. Every option has a description, and the help system is informative.
A set of quick navigation tabs allows users to jump from one task to another.
