RS2416+/RS2416RP+ includes redundant hardware mechanisms to ensure business continuity. The four built-in Ethernet ports with Link Aggregation and failover provide reliability in the event of unexpected hardware failure, while the hot-swappable drives to minimize system downtime during drive replacement. Redundant power supply units5 minimizes the chance of a complete system shutdown due to sudden power loss.



SSD cache technology

RS2416+/RS2416RP+ supports a combination of hard drives and read/write-optimized SSD cache, boosting throughput efficiently while minimizing cost per gigabyte. With full SSD cache reading and writing support, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ offers a significant reduction in I/O latency without crippling your budget. With only a small upfront investment, businesses can benefit from a significant enhancement in server performance.




Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager

Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, browser-based operating system running on every DiskStation and RackStation, which makes managing your Synology NAS a breeze. Featuring an intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data smarter and simpler. Synology's Package Center lets you download and install useful add-on packages designed specifically for individual or business needs, meaning you can enjoy more entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.



Fit into business environments easily

With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, RS2416+/​RS2416RP+ enables seamless account integration. The User Home feature can automatically create a "home" folder for every user account to minimize the administrator's effort in repeatedly creating "home" folders for all accounts. Windows ACL support on RS2416+/​RS2416RP+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS2416+/​RS2416RP+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS2416+/​RS2416RP+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.



Unified storage system

RS2416+/​RS2416RP+ enables businesses to cost-effectively manage multi-protocol data by integrating file-level (NAS) and block-level (SAN) storage into one unified storage system. Files can be shared across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® platforms seamlessly with comprehensive network protocol support (CIFS/SMB, AFP, and NFS). RS2416+/​RS2416RP+ provides a cost-effective iSCSI solution, allowing large scale businesses to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays. With thin provisioning available for file-level iSCSI LUN, you can maximize storage utilization by oversubscribing provisions and grow storage space as needed.



Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments

RS2416+/​RS2416RP+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, RS2416+/​RS2416RP+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments.
