Safeguards Your Big Data with Superior Performance

In the era of big data, finding a place to store and share tones of business files while maintaining data safety is extremely important for small and medium-sized businesses, and Synology DS2415+ is the ideal solution. With a brand-new quad core CPU, built-in AES-NI hardware encryption engine and expandable RAM module up to 6GB, DS2415+ delivers up to an average 451.5 MB/s reading and 415.49 MB/s writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment,1 and an encrypted data transmission at over 451.21 MB/s reading and 198.46 MB/s writing.

Virtualization Certified

DS2415+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware®, Citrix®, and Hyper-V®. Being VMware vSphere® 5 and VAAI® integration certified, DS2415+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power for unparalleled performance and efficiency in VMware environments. As the centralized storage of a virtual environment, DS2415+ enables virtual machine migration, allowing movement from server to server whilst eliminating service downtime and disruption to user. Windows® Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) and Synology Advanced LUN support extremely improves the efficiency on massive data transfer and migration.

Feature-Rich Business Applications

Put your data to work with Synology’s DS2415+. With Windows® ACL and LDAP support, DS2415+ fits easily into any existing workgroup environment, providing detailed access control and efficient privilege settings. SMB applications including printer sharing, VPN Server, Mail Server, web server, anti-virus, and network video surveillance, allow a single Synology DS2415+ to replace several traditional computing devices and help to maximumimize your productivity while keeping cost and effort to a minimum.

Resilient and Reliable

In addition to its superior performance, DS2415+ is built for reliability. Four Gigabit LAN ports provide redundancy in the event of unexpected hardware failure while hot swappable drives also help to minimize system downtime during drive replacement.

Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses; however, many businesses worldwide still remain unprepared for disaster. High Availability Manager can ensure a seamless transition between clustered servers in the event of server failure with minimal impact to applications, thus decreasing the risk of unexpected interruptions and costly downtime.

Unparalleled Flexibility

As your data storage needs grow, Synology’s DS2415+ can grow with you. DS2415+ can be connected to dedicated expansion units for additional storage on the fly, growing capacity with minimal effort. When paired with Synology DX1215 expansion units2 through specially designed expansion cable, raw capacity can be as high as 144TB.

Easy Backup Solutions

To protect your critical business data, DS2415+ can become a centralized backup target for consolidating fragmented and unstructured information across your network through a range of options. Advanced backup privilege management makes network backup tasks safer and efficient. Cloud Station with selective sync and ACL control provides real-time data backup and synchronization among multiple computers and mobile devices. Complete backup solutions including Scheduled LUN Snapshot, LUN clone and Backup & Replication minimize the impact of disasters.

Energy Efficient and Easy Management Design

Synology DS2415+ is designed with energy efficiency in mind. Equipped with a fast detachable fan module with two 120 X 120mm fans and a smart airflow design, DS2415+ runs cool 24/7, while its noise dampening design makes it much quieter than PC counterparts. Hard drive hibernation further reduces power consumption and operation costs. Screwless drive trays make failed drive replacement fast and tool-free.

All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen to continually work to reduce the environmental impact of every product produced.
