Right now, many around the world have found themselves with more free time, allowing them to watch movies, catch up on to-do lists and finish up home improvement projects. Whether you’re a movie lover with large files, or just want to organize your digital life and finally get your data management under control, a Synology NAS (Network Attached Storage) is the perfect quarantine companion. To help our readers get started, Synology is giving away their new DiskStation DS220j, and two 16TB Seagate IronWolf hard drives. These Seagate drives were designed specifically for multi-user NAS environments, are built for 24/7 always-on performance and come with a three-year warranty.
More great news? Thanks to Synology’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, setting up and maintaining your own server is a breeze. Its user-friendly interface makes it easy to monitor and backup your data from multiple devices. The DSM also offers additional apps that will allow you to tailor its functionality to your needs.
With the very useful Synology Drive, you can share documents, folders, or photos with a few clicks of a button. Only those you invite or send data to have access since your data lives on your NAS instead of in the cloud. This is especially useful for those working from home who may not have the best internet connection. Always having a copy of your data on your local network can reduce downtime caused by a poor connection or a failure in the cloud.
For families and movie lovers, a NAS can also work as your own personal media server. If you’re spending more time at home right now, it might be a good time to digitize your DVD collection or organize your digital video library. Streaming is easy just by connecting with Apple TV, Amazon Firestick, your smartphone and more. Synology NAS units are also DLNA compatible devices, meaning can connect and stream directly to your Xbox, PlayStation or Smart TV.
In addition to offering protection for your digital life, a Synology NAS can protect your home. Surveillance Station is a free application that allows you to set up a private surveillance system in your house. Compatible with over 7,000 cameras, Surveillance Station stores all of your footage on your NAS, so it never leaves your home. This takes away another point of access for potential bad actors who might try to access your footage as it’s sent to the cloud.
With so many applications designed to make your home and digital life more organized and secure, a Synology NAS can fit your data and storage needs without any recurring subscription fees. Now’s your chance to win a DS220j NAS and take control of your data.Synology DiskStation Giveaway
