"For home or small businesses, it's always a struggle to find a NAS server providing outstanding performance, scalability, and applicability at the same time. DS1019+ eliminates all of those concerns with a compact chassis design," said Kevin Meng, product manager of Synology Inc. "Featuring a quad-core processor, upgradable memory to 8GB, and dual M.2 NVMe SSD slots, which allow users to create a SSD cache without occupying any drive trays."

DS1019+ can also expand to a total of 10 drive bays with expansion units, and has a full storage capacity of 140TB, giving users ample room for their media library or backing up important files.

File Server Offering Anywhere Access

Anyone can build their own private cloud with DS1019+, so they won't have to worry about third parties snooping in on important data. Businesses and home users alike can also share files for collaboration across multiple platforms, and anywhere access allows them to be able to reach their data through a web browser, or they can sync it across different devices for mobile access while they're on-the-go.

A Centralized Backup Destination with Active Backup

DS1019+ is also an ideal backup destination because it can hold significant amounts of data and expand as businesses grow. With Synology's Active Backup Suite, DS1019+ can back up Windows computers and servers, VMware virtual machines, and Office 365 and G Suite to a centralized location. Flexible restoration options, including a full image restore or a single file recovery, create a cohesive disaster recovery plan that can help safeguard data. With the Active Backup Suite, businesses can configure and monitor all backup tasks from a single place, and can rest assured that all of their important information is backed up in a unified solution, without any additional licensing fees.

An Ideal Multimedia Server

For media enthusiasts, DS1019+ allows users to play their media on streaming devices and organize their photos and music with several packages included on DiskStation Manager. Video Station, for example, helps users manage all of their movies, TV shows, and home videos, and lets them stream to various devices. It supports a wide selection of file formats, making it easy for anyone to enjoy their favorite movies via Apple TV, DLNA devices, mobile devices, and computers.

Moments is Synology's photo organization software, and can help make sifting through countless numbers of photos a breeze. It has image recognition technology that automatically identifies people, subjects, and places, and groups them accordingly. Searching by keywords allows users to find the right photo without having to scroll endlessly through all of their images.
