Synology Disk Station DS411slim NAS server Product Description

Snap-in 2.5”hard drives design brings low power consumption, quiet operation, reliability and easy disk replacement in a compact size. The operating system, Synology DiskStation Manager 3.0, delivers rich features for multimedia enjoyments, Internet sharing, worry-free data protection and energy-saving options.

Key Features

  • Small Footprint, Cool and Quiet
  • Flexible RAID Data Protection
  • Cross Platform File Sharing & Backup
  • DLNA Certified Media Server
  • Power-Saving (9W~16W)

Green, Quiet, and Reliable

The Synology DS411slim is designed to work with 2.5” hard drives. The low power consumption characteristic of 2.5” hard drives will lower your electricity bill, as well as reduce your carbon footprint. In addition, 2.5” hard drives have reduced vibration, increased MTBF (mean time before failure), and shock tolerance. It not only extends hard drive’s lifespan, but also provides better reliability. The smart fan design keeps the DS411slim’s fan off under normal operations and spinning up at a very low speed only when needed, thus minimizing the noise level.

Flexible RAID Management

The Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) automatically builds an optimal RAID volume with data protection based on the hard drives installed, eliminating the need to have hard drives of identical size, while still offering a manual setup option for advanced users.

Cross Platform File Sharing & Backup

Synology DiskStation is designed for data storage and sharing among Windows, Mac, and Linux. Seamless file sharing across different operation systems is an effortless process. Internet file access is simplified by the encrypted FTP server, the web-based File Browser and File Station. HTTPS, firewall, and IP auto-block support ensure file sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level.

The Synology DS411slim offers a centralized backup target to consolidate fragmented and unstructured data across a network. PC Users can back up their data to the Synology DS411slim using the free Synology Data Replicator software, while Mac OS X users enjoy native Apple® Time Machine integration.

A web-based backup wizard is provided for backing up data in the Synology DS411slim to another Synology DiskStation or any rsync server via an encrypted transmission, or to an external hard drive via USB or eSATA connection. In addition, backing up to the cloud using Amazon® S3 service is also supported.

Your Own Entertainment Center

Synology DiskStation is designed and developed perpetually with the concept of energy saving. Compared with average PC counterparts, Synology DiskStation consumes a relatively low amount of power and hibernates when not in use. This not only helps to save energy but also extends the lifespan of the hard disk.

Synology DiskStation truly earns the title of “green product” because of the unique Scheduled Power On/Off feature.

Finally, all Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology recognizes its responsibility as a global citizen and is continually working to reduce the environmental impact of the products we create.

Middlesex GB
A very neat NAS small enough to sit on a shelf and forget about. Handles all my data and hosts my itunes server. A doddle to set up although formatting the disks takes a while, RAID 0.
None so far.

Bonby GB
Simple to set up and link to windows. Very very quiet and runs cool. Software simple to use with web browser. Very functionally rich from blogs to media streaming to VPN support included in price. Would buy another one any day and replace Windows Home Server again.
Can only add disks equal or larger than original one. Firewall a pain to set up if you have a none listed router and file share has a firewall bug. Backup software for PC very basic but does support file versions.
