4K Multimedia Server
Access and stream your music and 4K media content anytime and anywhere. DS718+ supports 4K H.264/H.265 online transcoding via Video Station and DS video, allowing 4K videos to be converted and played on the fly on other computers, smartphones, and media players that originally do not support Ultra HD formats.

Flexible scalability meeting growing needs
Powered by an Intel Celeron J3455 quad-core processor and AES-NI hardware encryption engine, DS718+ delivers excellent file transfer speeds. With the scalability to expand up to 7 drives with Synology Expansion Unit DX517 and the support for real-time 4K/1080p video transcoding, DS718+ is ideal for centralizing data backup and storing ultra-high definition media contents.

Ultimate file management and sharing
File Station is a web-based, fast and secure management tool built to allow easy, drag-and-drop operation without requiring any complex setup on Mac or PC. Advanced search and filtering tools allow for easy organization and sharing of files with just a link.

Synchronize files across your devices
Cloud Station Suite provides real-time data synchronization across all your devices, such as computers, mobile devices, and other Synology NAS whenever a file is modified. “Intelliversioning” keeps the most important file versions to better utilize storage space.
