The ShareCenter Pulse 2-Bay Network Storage, when used with internal SATA drives*, enables users to share documents, files, and digital media such as music, photos, and videos with other users on a home or office network. Remotely accessing files through the Internet is also possible using the built-in secure FTP server and web file server. Keep data safe by giving rights to specific users or groups and assign them to folders with specific read/write permissions.

    • D-Link's DNS-320 2-Bay Network Storage device allows you to back up and share your digital files over the network without breaking the bank. Enjoy the flexibility of using your own SATA disk drives.

      The D-Link® ShareCenter® 2-Bay Network Storage device with USB printer support is the perfect way to store, safeguard, and share your digital documents, music, videos, and photos with anyone on your network. The DNS-320 is expandable; you can add up to 2 SATA drives giving you plenty of space to store tons of digital photos, thousands of hours of digital music, or hundreds of DVD-quality movies. Adding a drive is a breeze with the D-Link tool-less design.


      • Easily connects to your existing network
      • Centrally store and share photos, music and videos
      • Supports Windows, Mac and Linux computers
      • Built-in Web File server and FTP server allow users to easily access important documents remotely, over the Internet 


      • Built-in Peer-to-Peer (P2P) downloader for downloading digital media from the Internet without having to power on or connect your PC
      • Stream movies to your TV using the Boxee Box or any other compatible media player, such as the PlayStation 3® or Microsoft XBox 360® 


      RAID technology to protect your data in the event of a hard drive failure
      4 different modes to choose from:
      • Standard mode creates two separately accessible hard drives.
      • JBOD combines both drives in a linear fashion for maximum space efficiency.
      • RAID 0 combines both drives in a 'striped' configuration, splitting data evenly across the hard drives to provide the highest performance.
      • RAID 1 causes two drives to mirror each other, providing maximum protection. If one drive fails, the unaffected drive in the partition will continue to operate normally. Once you replace the failed drive, RAID 1 mirroring will resume and both drives will mirror each other again. 


      • Create a failsafe protection solution from accidental data loss on your PC
      • Automatically back up your data
      • Set schedules and rules with incremental backups and storage quotas for specific users and groups.
      • Built-in Remote Backup application allows you to backup your ShareCenter device to a second device at an off-site location 


      • With Gigabit connectivity, an easy to use management GUI, and a simple installation wizard you can get setup in minutes.

      1 Hard drive(s) not included with DNS-320 model. DNS-320-1TB includes 1 x 1TB SATA drive. An internal 3.5" SATA drive is required to store or share files and must be formatted before use. RAID 0 and RAID 1 require the use of two (2) SATA drives. To avoid drive incompatibility in RAID 0 or 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 lower-sized drive. May not work with older generation SATA drives. For a list of SATA drives that have been tested to work with the DNS-320 visit the FAQs section.
      2 Use of an FTP Server over the Internet does not provide secure or encrypted transmissions, unless the end user enables SSL authentication in their FTP client.
      3 D-Link cannot guarantee full compatibility or proper playback with all codecs. Playback capability depends on the codec support of the UPnP AV media player.
      4 24/7 Basic Installation Support is available only in the USA for the first 30 days from date of original purchase.
      5 3-Year Limited Warranty available only in the USA and Canada.
