This means that showing all your memories from the latest family holiday is easier and more seamless than ever.

For small businesses, this storage solution allows owners to implement a system that they can rely on, fitting in seamlessly with any existing business infrastructure. This allows business owners to continue their day-to-day operations without having to take too much time out of their day to set up this new system, ultimately leading to greater productivity. The powerful Collaboration Suite of the DS218+ integrates Synology Office, Calendar and Chat, enabling small businesses to establish a secure and effective private communication, allowing organisations to manage and control their relevant content. Collaboration has never been more convenient and secure! Additionally, if you have CCTV surveillance on your home or business, the Synology Surveillance Station is a reliable private-security solution that can support multiple IP cameras connected to the DS218+ enabling real-time monitoring.
