ShareCenterTM 2Go, 1-Bay Portable Network / USB Storage
Industry type:Electronics and communication
Product model number:DNS-213
D-Link Corporation
award 3

The D-Link ShareCenter™ 2Go, DNS-213, 1-Bay Portable Network/USB Storage with 2.5” SATA Hard Drive enables you to share your documents, photos, music and videos across the network and over the Internet (via FTP server) so that family members, friends or employees can access them at anytime. This enclosure is equipped with a 2.5” SATA hard drive; it creates a central network point for backing up valuable files.

The ShareCenter™ 2Go also supports the DAS (Direct Attached Storage) function which can be powered by PC/NB through a USB port allowing the ShareCenter™ 2Go to be used as a 2.5” external USB hard disk.

This ShareCenter™ shares files over the Internet via the built-in FTP server. Users and groups can be created and assigned to folders with either read or read/write permissions. This is ideal for an office environment with employee-specific sensitive data or for the home where you can ensure your children will only have access to age appropriate material. The ShareCenter™ will be available to any computer (PC, or Linux-based) on your network, without the need to install any software on the computer.

In addition, the ShareCenter™ can be used to stream photos, music, and videos to UPnP AV compatible network media players (such as those found in D-Link’s MediaLounge product line). This feature is highly convenient as it allows you to turn off a computer that would normally be needed for the same function.

The included CD contains D-Link’s Easy Search Utility. This utility allows you to locate the ShareCenter™ on the network and map drives to your computer. Backup software is also included on the CD. This software allows you to backup your files from a computer to the ShareCenter™ manually, by a schedule, or in real-time. Real-time backups are a great way to safeguard against unfortunate accidents that may result in the loss of important files.


About D-Link Corporation

Founded in 1986, D-Link is a global leader in advanced networking, broadband, digital, voice and data communication solutions. We continually meet the needs of the digital home, small office, small-to-medium sized businesses, and enterprise environments.


In 1986, D Link founder Ken Kao and six colleagues set out on an entrepreneurial venture that would forever change the computer networking industry. D Link was founded under the name Datex Systems. The name D Link takes the leading D from Datex, combining it with the concept of a “link” connecting people. In fact, D Link’s Chinese name roughly translates as “friends networking together.” This concept continues to shape D Link’s brand today. Though founded as a small venture, D Link has since swelled into an international networking giant with over 2,800 employees worldwide. D Link has emerged as a trusted brand with a worldwide reputation for robust and affordable networking solutions, and has renewed its commitment to developing “green” technologies and IPv6 ready hardware which will prepare its customers for an alluring new era of ultimate connectivity.
