SYNOLOGY DISKSTATION DS210+ 2-BAY NAS INTRODUCTION
There are many companies out there that make great NAS units, and based on my past experience with Synology's products, they are right up there among the best. Previously I reviewed the DS-210J and DS-209 home NAS units and they exceeded my expectations in just about every way. I now have a new offering from Synology to take for a test run, but this time it's a business grade NAS. Typically, a business environment is much more demanding than a home environment so it's imperative that a NAS be able to keep up with a constant flow of file transfers, print jobs and backup operations, just to name a few. Is Synology's DS210+ up to the task? I have very high expectations for this unit, so let's see how it performs.
