Comprehensive Business Applications
Powered by the innovative Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), DS1817 comes fully equipped with applications and features designed specifically for growing businesses:

• Windows® AD and LDAP support allow easy integration with existing business directory services without recreating user accounts.
• Windows ACL support provides fine-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing DS1817 to fit seamlessly into current infrastructure.
