What this product does

The ShareCenter™ 2-Bay Network Storage Enclosure, when used with internal SATA drives1, enables homes and small offices to share documents and files across the network and on the Internet. This enclosure also allows for the creation of a central network point for backing up files and the built-in RAID 1 mirroring technology protects these files from drive failure. Add-on applications can be installed to further extend functionality.

Easily access and share your photos, movies, music, files and more via mydlink™ Cloud Services

This ShareCenter™ Cloud Storage device enables you to share documents and media content such as photos, music and videos on a home network or over the Internet. Via the mydlink™ portal you can, download and upload files, delete files/folders from the NAS and check the status of your device remotely.

With the mydlink™ Access-NAS app available for iPhone, iPad and Android you can also view photos, stream music and videos from your mobile devices. You can download files from your NAS to your mobile device to send or watch later. Files can also be uploaded to the ShareCenter™ from your mobile device and backed up, preserving space on your mobile devices.

You can also manage the contents of your ShareCenter™ from any FTP client.

Stream digital media content with the built-in Media Server

The built-in UPnP media server will stream the media content on your Sharecenter™ to any compatible media player such as the PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, and D-Link Boxee Box over your local network. The Sharecenter™ 2-Bay Network Storage Enclosure allows for multiple simultaneous streams, so you can watch a movie on your entertainment centre while someone else listens to music streamed over their computer.

Safely share digital files locally and over the Internet

The ShareCenter™ 2-Bay Network Storage, when used with internal SATA drives1, enables users to share documents and files with other users on the same network. Users can also gain remote access to their files over the Internet using the built-in web/file server or the secure FTP server. Keep data safe by giving rights to specific users or groups and assign them to folders with specific read/write permissions. This is ideal for an office environment with sensitive employee-specific data or at home when parents want to restrict their children’s access to certain material . The ShareCenter™ also supports Apple Time Machine which allows users to easily back up any Mac computers running OS X (10.5 or later).
Do more with Surveillance, Photo and Audio Center as well as powerful add-on applications

Powerful add-on applications extend NAS functionality and allow you to do more with your ShareCenter™. Surveillance Center allows you to access and configure D-Link IP cameras on the same network to record, monitor and playback. Photo and Audio Center allows you to generate photo and music libraries that can be easily managed and shared. Enjoy even more add-ons as they become available in the future.
Connect USB printers, storage devices, and UPS monitors

Share a USB printer or scanner within the network by connecting it to the USB 2.0 port. You may also plug in an external hard drive or flash storage device and share it with the entire network. A convenient USB push button allows you to instantly copy the data on a USB flash storage device to the NAS. Additionally, the ShareCenter™ supports UPS monitoring via USB to help maintain data integrity during a power failure.
Enjoy performance, protection, and flexibility

The availability of four different hard drive modes (Standard, JBOD, RAID 0, RAID 1) allows users to choose the configuration best suited to their needs. Standard mode creates two separately accessible hard drives. JBOD combines both drives to create a single, easy to use volume. RAID 0 combines both drives in a “striped” configuration, which provides the highest performance when using a Gigabit Ethernet connection. RAID 1 creates a copy of your data on both drives, providing maximum protection; if one drive fails while configured as RAID 1, the unaffected drive continues to function as a single drive until the failed drive is replaced. The new drive will then be re-mirrored, allowing the ShareCenter™ to return to its full level of protection.

D-Link Green™

For businesses interested in reducing their energy costs and helping to save the environment, D-Link Green™ products provide eco-friendly alternatives without compromising performance. This device uses D-Link Green Ethernet, Hard Drive power management and Smart Fan speed control to reduce energy costs, minimize noise, and prolong the lifespan of your hard drives.

Also available with 1TB or 2TB Hard Drives installed (DNS-325-1TB and DNS-325-2TB).

1 Hard drives only included for DNS-325 1TB (1 x 1TB) and DNS-325 2TB (1 x 2TB). RAID 1 mirroring requires the use of two internal SATA drives. To avoid data incompatibility in RAID 1 operation, use SATA drives from the same manufacturer. Formatted drive capacity for RAID 1 operation is dependent on the drive capacity of the lowest-sized drive. May not work with older generation SATA drives.
