Hardware Excellence

As the embodiment of Synology’s refined hardware craftsmanship, EDS14 features a compact and portable body, fan-less and drive-less design, and advanced network storage functionality, without sacrificing system reliability or quality of service. Synology EDS14 boasts exceptional durability in challenging thermal environments without the ventilation of a fan. The dynamic cooling mechanism specifically programmed for EDS14 guarantees system uptime and CPU health even at surrounding temperatures as high as 50°C. Despite its small size, EDS14 is powered by an 1.2GHz CPU and 512MB of RAM, ensuring both computing and multi-tasking capabilities. For a model dependent upon external drives, EDS14 delivers remarkable read/write performance - up to 111.94 MB/sec reading with USB 3.0 drive in a Windows® environment, and 50.58 MB/sec writing.1

The advanced hardware design of the EDS14 accommodates two LAN ports, one SD card reader, one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 interface - all inside a 125 x 125 x 31 mm enclosure. EDS14 supports the the latest external storage interface - USB 3.0 and SDXC/UHS-I, maximizing system availability with both speed and capacity.

Unparalleled Versatility

With its compact physical size, EDS14 is the most versatile NAS server in Synology’s product line and has been optimized for deployment in a variety of environments. Apart from the increased thermal endurance range, EDS14 tolerates dynamic DC input voltage from 7 to 24V, making it compatible with a variety of power sources such as cigarette lighter receptacle in an automobile. A schedulable DC output up to 1A is available to power an external device where power outlet is out of reach. Peripheral devices can be powered on, off, or reset remotely according to a schedule using DiskStation Manager’s management interface (available from DSM 5.0). Equipped with two LAN ports, EDS14 protects local network tasks and Internet connection from mutual interference. With the support for PoE splitters, EDS14 is also ideal for deployment in a PoE environment.

Cloud-Ready NVR

EDS14 has been specifically designed to run Synology Surveillance Station, a cutting-edge NVR solution with rich features that meet the most demanding enterprise surveillance requirements. In addition to its intuitive setup and hassle-free interface, Surveillance Station features an optimized live view experience with on-screen operations, smart analytics tools like motion detection, and an alert system that sends instant notification through SMS, e-mail, Skype, and DS cam. Synology works diligently to integrate all types of IP cameras on the market and currently supports over 2,400 IP camera models.

QuickConnect and Mobile Access

QuickConnect is one of Synology’s most prided services. In scenarios where port-forwarding rules cannot be applied, QuickConnect offers direct remote access to your files in EDS14 without complicated router configurations. With DS cam, a dedicated app available for Android and iOS devices, users can view IP cameras live, receive event notifications and access history recordings on demand. Synology also provides mobile applications that allow you to enjoy the full variety of your multimedia library even when on the go. You can stream your private albums, music and video collection from home, on the EDS14. Available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms, DS photo+, DS audio, and DS video mobilize your Photo Station, Audio Station and Video Station, placing terabytes of content at your fingertips.

Windows + Mac + Linux Cross Platform File Sharing

Synology EDS14 offers comprehensive network protocol support, assuring seamless file sharing across Windows, Mac®, and Linux® platforms. Internet file access is simplified by the encrypted FTP server and the web-based file explorer, Synology File Station. HTTPS, firewall, and IP auto-block support ensure file sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level.

For users who are always on the move, Synology provides a handy app, DS file, for popular mobile devices such as iPhone®, iPad®, Android devices and Windows Phone. Anything stored on Synology EDS14 can now be accessed remotely using DS file.

Energy Efficient with Cool and Quiet Design

All Synology NAS is designed with energy efficiency in mind. Not only does EDS14 come with Synology’s smart cooling technology to keep the system running cool 24/7, its noise dampening design makes it really quiet. All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials.
