The Synology DiskStation DS220j uses the company’s Hybrid RAID (SHR). This automated RAID management system allows users to create and expand storage volumes, and gives them the option to migrate RAID types without requiring details on the RAID setup. Moreover, it offers users 1-disk redundancy to protect data during drive failures.

Like all DiskStation solutions, the DS220j is managed through Synology’s DSM. This comprehensive NAS operating system features a range of apps that focus on file server/management, multimedia, hyper backup, and security. Users can also integrate with mobile devices via DS Audio, DS Photo and DS Video.
