Overview:

Synology DiskStation DS216se is a budget-friendly two-bay NAS device, ideal for starting your own cloud or creating a no-fuss and full-featured file server. Powered by DiskStation Manager, DS216se offers possibilities way beyond the traditional NAS servers with built-in applications and handy add-on packages.

Features:

High-performance and floating-point unit boost efficiency

The DS216se delivers an average of over 102 MB/sec reading and over 59 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows® environment.1 The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail creation when uploading large amounts of photos or videos.

High Performance and Floating-point efficiency

Eco-friendly NAS server

Designed to be energy efficient, DS216se consumes relatively little power at 13.73 watts while accessing and 5.12 watts when hard drive hibernation is enabled*.Moreover, with the new scheduled power on/off feature, users are able to manage and reduce their operation cost. Synology acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen, so all Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials.
