D-Link announced today the availability of its ShareCenter dual-bay NAS servers, the DNS-320 and the DNS-325.

The company says these new servers can host two SATA 3.5-inch hard drives of capacities up to 2TB each and can be accessed remotely using the Mydlink mobile application.

The new NAS servers from D-Link also support media streaming and are able to host digital content for media streamers, like game consoles or the D-Link Boxee Box.

Other than that, the two new servers have a standard set of features like most NAS servers. They can work as FTP servers and offer remote access via the Internet. They have built-in USB ports to host printers or additional storage and feature Gigabit Ethernet. D-Link says that both include FarStone's Total Recovery Backup Pro software and are very easy to set up and use. Both products also feature AFP and Time Machine support for Mac users.

There are only a few differences between the two servers. The DNS-320 has an 800MHz processor, whereas the DNS-325 is powered by a 1.2GHz processor. The DNS-325 also includes applications, such as a photo gallery, an audio streamer, and a blog application that allows people to host their own blogs directly from the device.

The DNS-320 and DNS-325 are available now and cost $110 and $200, respectively, without storage.

Correction, April 11 at 5:45 p.m. PT: This post was updated to state that the new NAS servers currently don't work as DVRs for IP cameras.
