Synology has launched their new DiskStation DS119j. This is a compact, energy-efficient 1-bay NAS. This could make an ideal first NAS for your home or office. Furthmore, as it only measures 166 mm x 71 mm x 224 mm , it won’t need much space to work.

NAS, or Network Attached Storage, is an excellent way of not only storing your digital files but enabling access to those files from anywhere in the world.

Synology is a renowned brand that produces high-quality NAS drive enclosures. Their latest offering is a single bay drive, meaning that it takes a single 3.5-inch hard drive. It can also fit a 2.5-inch drive with an optional adapter.

The new DiskStation is powered by a 64-bit Marvell Armada 3700 88F3720 dual-core 800MHz processor. This is mated with 256 MB DDR3L system memory.

Additionally, the DiskStation DS119j will accept a single volume up to 108TB.

Michael Wang, product manager at Synology Inc, told us:

There are many users who are not familiar with a NAS yet, nor aware of the benefits of having one at home,” .”DS119j is aimed to be an ideal choice for first-time NAS users with versatile software features, an intuitive user interface, and an affordable price point.”

Tailor-made for the home environment, DS119j only consumes 5.01 watts in hard drive hibernation mode, and 10.04 watts under full operation. By comparison, a laptop can consume upwards of 45 watts. Furthermore, its noise dampening design makes it whisper-quiet compared to some PC counterparts.

DS119j also serves as a home multimedia server. You can easily share photos with friends, or stream music and video files to mobile devices or multimedia players.

DS119j runs on DiskStation Manager, the intuitive operating system for Synology NAS devices. This software offers various applications to enhance work productivity.
