A History of Synology 2-Bay NAS – DS207, DS209, DS210, DS211, DS212, DS213, DS214, DS215, DS216 and DS217

A History of Synology 2-Bay NAS - From 2004 to NOW Home or Business for 2017

2004 to 2017- A Guide to the popular 2-Bay Synology NAS Server Range and how it has Evolved 

synology-all-black-logo-for-banner Before we get to grips with the Synology 2-Bay NAS series over the years, it is important to take a look a little further back at the first 1 Bay NAS units they ever produced. back in 2004, home based NAS servers were very much in their infancy and lacked many, many of the popular software features that have made them a staple in many homes and offices today. With painfully low power CPU and modest amounts of memory (even for 2004 it was a low power unit, but this was chiefly to keep costs down but features high in the first version of the DSM software) they were designed for predominantly low level files access and backups. Network speeds were still low enough that even if the unit had the power to stream high quality media, your internet connection and bandwidth were probably too poor to take advantage of it.

The Synology CS-406 NAS Server First Generation Network Attached Storage ServerSynology would continue to release 1-Bay and 4-Bay RAID enabled NAS units in the years that followed, but not in the annual release time frame they have now and with the 4-Bay units often never making out of the east. Of course the Hardware and software of these later units would improve over time, but with RAID solutions only arriving in 4-Bay more expensive devices, the market was waiting on a solid two Bay NAS solution.

2007 – The Synology DS207 2-Bay Network Attached Storage Device now becomes available

After the release of numerous 1 and 4 Bay NAS server devices, Synology finally released what the market wanted a RAID 1 (mirror) compact 2-Bay NAS device. Launching in two versions (a standard and a double the power pro version) this 2-Bay shot too success very quickly indeed. Alongside the innovations in software over the years in their often updated DSM NAS operating system and stability, there were also numerous physical improvements in chassis and port design. Three USB ports (one with a quick copy button) along with eSATA 6GBs support a host of LED system indicators and easy drive installation meant that this unit would shape up to the a benchmark NAS in the history of Network Attached Storage.

2009 – The Synology DS209 2-Bay Network Attached Storage range begins to diversify

By 2009, Synology NAS had really found it’s footing. Releasing their first 5-Bay NAS the year before (a unit that was the middle ground in terms of size and power between home and business users) Synology Had a good grasp of what the NAS community wanted. Thery started diversifying their releases in terms of task specific versions to appeal to differing budgets and demand. The Synology 2-Bay Series for 2009 featured a cost-effective file server and low multimedia requirement targeted NAS in the DS209J, a standard bells and whistles Synology DS209 and two high end/Premium NAS servers that both had (for that time) impressive specs and with the newly released and improved DSM 2.1 (featurinng improved AJAX-Based Management Interface, Windows ADS Support, Encrypted Network Backup, Encrypted FTP with Hack Prevention, Business Mail Server, Corporate Surveillance and Schedule Power On/Off) the DS209 2-Bay Synology NAS series would be the start of a new way of arranging their releases.

2010 – The Synology DS210 2-Bay Network Attached Storage range gets bigger and better

By 2010 Synology NAS was at it’s strongest position yet. Both the Hardware and the software available with Synology NAS devices had come forward leaps and bounds. The 2-Bay series made another leap in 2010 with the release of their expandable storage NAS. Synology had unveiled the DX510 Expansion Chassis and this coupled with the DS710+ would mean you could expand you 2 HDD of storage up by an additional 250% to 7 HDD Bays – via the connection of an eSATA port on the DS710+ NAS device.

2011 – The Synology DS211 2-Bay NAS Series becomes available in cost effect, standard, Plus and Premium

By this time, Synology had most it’s range in place. There were still a few more job specific NAS units still to come in the years after but by now the popular 1-Bay, 2-Bay, 4-Bay, 5-Bay and even a 12-Bay NAS were available. Each of course had it’s own storage options, as well as RAID configurations and Hardware options. Also around this time Synology DSM software was in it’s newest Beta and would be released, at the same time being available to older units that had the hardware to support it. This kind of non stop software support and backwards compatibility was another one of the main reasons that many users found the Synology 2-Bay NAS series so appealing.

2012 – The Synology DS212 2-Bay Network Attached Storage range gets USB 3.0, better CPUs, SD Card Readers and more

The 2012 2-Bay NAS series from Synology would prove to be a much more streamlined production system from Synology. Their approach to design after years of slighted dated looking chassis would be uniform accross the board, both in terms of colour and design. The economy/budget/cost effect NAS units would be in a white chipped based casing that would be partial deconstruction to install HDD inside (so no hot swapping of drives when you needed to increase storage or recover from a RAID 1). The Standard and PLUS series units would use a clickable, too-less tray deign for loading HDD media, enabled hot swapping, an SD Card reader, USB 3.0 and a removable front panel for drive covering and shielded design. Finally the PLUS Expansion NAS 2-Bay DS7xx units would have a much more metallic chassis (though still black) with improved trays, dual LAN ports to effective double read and write into the device and improved ports throughout.

2013 – The Synology DS213 2-Bay NAS gets innovative with Dual Core CPU models, Wireless Connectivity and the Intel Atom CPU

In his year, Synology would release a new kind of NAS in an effort to capitalise on an increased Wireless presence in the home and offices worldwide. The DS213air would be their first wireless NAS device. Sadly the unit would not be as popular as they hoped and a follow up would never be released. It was a shame because up until then a Wireless NAS would virtually unheard of and the for offices in need of a solution that would live in the same room as them, yet their Router/Network switch was in another area, a solution like this would be perfect. Sadly with reduced transmission speeds, a weak CPU and RAM and poor upgrading options, it never really took off. Elsewhere the rest of the 2-Bay NAS series would be released aNd would NOT be a disappointment in terms of hardware. Synology really began to diversify into newer and unseen CPU, even unveiling a new Intel Atom Dual Core CPU – a NAS Enabled CPU that would fast become a NAS standard from Synology, QNAP, Thecus, Asustor and more.

2014 – The Synology DS214 2-Bay NAS includes a SUPER Budget NAS, standard, Plus and a brand new Multimedia specialised PLAY model

For Synology, 2014 seems to be when they released some of their most iconic units. Home users had really embraced the advantages of a private cloud storage at their finger tips and likewise media access via network enabled DLNA devices had jumped enormously. This coupled with internet speeds increasing exponentially worldwide meant that a well purchased NAS would be a sound investment in years to come from those in the business sector, those wanting to download or stream the movies & music, or even the low, low data use person that just wants to backup the occasional file or backup a mail server easily. Synology released their PLAY series of media enabled devices as well as their new SE budget model that had specs that would have looked a bit light even in 2011 – but priced at below £99.

2015 – The Synology DS215 2-Bay NAS range gets smaller

2015 was a strange year for Synology NAS. For reasons best know to them, their range of NAS server devices was a much small release figure. Whether it was to get more money from their previous DS214 release or to create an alternate 2 year release schedule for their ever growing range of NAS devices (with the SE, + and Expandable NAS range one year. Then the next releasing their PLAY, J and Standard). Whatever the reason, 2015 was a relatively quiet year for the release of 2-Bay Synology NAS devices. 2016 however would more than make up for that…

2016 – The Synology DS216 2-Bay NAS is bigger than ever with 9 Releases

Probably the biggest year in Synology’s NAS range, the DS216 Series included every single Synology NAS model. Alongside this the SE, J, PLAY and PLUS series would be added to with a NVR (Network Video Recorder) 2-Bay NAS device in the NVR216. Alongside this the Synology NAS CPU in the DS216+ and DS716+ (the latter of which is easily the best and most popular Synology NAS 2-Bay ever released) would run into production problems where demand would result in the Intel CPU chip not being available a newer and more powerful Intel CPU being issued. In an effort to differentiate this newer CPU enabled version of the device (with teh newer unit costing more to produce and therefore higher price tag for the consumer) the DS716+II and DS216+II were released to highlight the upgraded CPU and thus bringing the total number of 2-Bay NAS in the Synology DS216 range to 9 releases.

2017 – The Synology DS217 2-Bay NAS Series? What is to come?

In these early stages of 2017 it is still too early to say what Synology have in store for 2007 in their 2-Bay range. They did seem to release a huge number of units in their 2016 NAS range and we could well expect a leaner year in terms of NAS releases. As you can see from the NASCompare history of Synology 2-Bay Devices, the DS217 series could easily just be a few select NAS units. A DS217+ here, a DS217PLAY there. Of course, we at NC and the guys at SPAN.COM will continue to keep you informed on what is hot and in-coming from the guys at Synology.
