Harness The Cloud, Keep Control Of Your Data with Synology

Synology Network Attached Storage (NAS) products are designed to be efficient servers that make storage less expensive, more accessible, and easier to manage than any other product. Because you retain control of the storage, there’s no concerns of sensitive data being swept up in a data breach at a major cloud service, and you don’t have to worry about the monthly, user count, or transaction fees associated with cloud services.


With free add-on packages, you can import your data that is stored with a cloud storage provider and easily import it to your Synology NAS. Whether its your important notes taken with Evernote, or the documents in your Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive account, there’s a way to transition away from, or mix the benefits of, cloud storage with your NAS.

Award-Winning and Intuitive Interface

Each Synology Network Attached Storage (NAS) system includes the award-winning user interface known as DiskStation Manager (DSM), making it easy to integrate into your small home office, or throughout a nationwide chain of offices and stores.
