ShareCenter™ 1-Bay Network Storage
Where to buy


Safely Share Digital Files Locally and Over the Internet
The D-Link DNS-315 ShareCenter™ 1-Bay Network Storage is a Network Attached Storage device where you can store and share documents, files, and digital media such as music, photos, and videos. You can set specific permissions to certain users or groups, limiting their access to the files. In addition, users can access the DNS-315 remotely over the Internet via the web file server or built-in FTP server, making accessibility extremely versatile. The DNS-315 is ideal for an office environment with employee-specific data or for a home where children should only have access to age-appropriate mater
Stream Digital Media Content with Built-in DLNA-certified Media Server
Make automatic downloads without turning on your PC and enjoy the benefits of the DNS-315’s built-in UPnP AV media server as you stream digital content tov compatible media players* such as the Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, and D-Link Boxee Box. In addition, you can stream your iTunes media files using the integrated iTunes server, to Apple devices like the iPhone, iPod, and iPad. By streaming your media through the built-in UPnP AV and iTunes servers, you can turn off the computer that would normally be needed for the same function.
Connect USB Printers, Storage Devices, and Digital Cameras
Share a USB printer within the network by connecting it to the DNS-315’s USB 2.0 port. You may also plug in an external hard drive or flash storage device and share it with the entire network. A convenient USB button allows you to instantly copy the data from the USB flash storage device to the DNS-315. Moreover, you can connect your digital camera via PTP/MTP to copy or share photos within the network.
