Enrich Your Web Presence
Download Station functions as a 24x7 BitTorrent, FTP, HTTP, eMule, and
NZB download center without a PC. The eMule download engine allows
search-n-download capability with a web-browser without installing
additional desktop applications.
Photo Station simplifies photo, video, and blog sharing over the Internet.

visitor’s privilege setting, RSS feed, and the dazzling 3-dimentional photo
browsing with Cooliris make Photo Station your state-of-the-art lifestyle
sharing center on the Internet.
Audio Station supports music, Internet radio stations, and iPod playback
with the optional speakers. An optional direction-free Synology Remote
allows you to freely enjoy your music. Streaming mode allows your music to
be shared with multiple users over the Intranet or Internet.
DLNA/UPnP Compliant Media Sever allows you to stream multimedia files
with an UPnP Digital Media Adapter (DMA) to a stereo system or a TV-set.
Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox360 are also supported.
iTunes® Server is an easy way to share music with other iTunes clients over
the network. Password protection prevents unauthorized sharing.
Back Up Your Precious Data
DiskStation Manager offers comprehensive solutions for you to back up
data stored on DiskStation or your desktop computer to the DiskStation.
Server backup includes two alternatives: Network Backup and Local
Backup. Both allow you to back up data in the shared folders and databases.
Incremental backup option and flexible schedules are available. All can be
easily configured with a step-by-step wizard.
Desktop backup provides your Windows PC with Synology Data Replicator
for backing up desktop data, Outlook, and Outlook Express emails to your
DiskStation by choosing one of the three backup modes: Immediate, Sync, and
Scheduled backup, while Mac OS X users can use Apple Time Machine backup
application to back up their critical data to DiskStation.
USBCopy allows you to quickly back up your data from an USB storage device
such as an USB flash or USB card reader to your DiskStation with just one single
touch on the front-panel copy button.
