Synology DiskStation DS416 is the ideal solution for SMBs and home users seeking to establish a robust, dense, and high-value storage server or private cloud. Featuring a powerful hardware encryption engine, DS416 ensures your encrypted data remains available in an instant.
High-speed data transfer and hardware encryption engine
Featuring a dual-core processor with hardware encryption engine, DS416 delivers blazingly fast file transfer speeds – even when handling encrypted data. With Link Aggregation enabled, DS416 delivers average reading and writing speeds of 220 MB/s and 140 MB/s respectively, while encrypted file transfers remain quickly retrievable, with performance exceeding 146 MB/s reading and 65 MB/s writing. That means you can safeguard data without sacrificing performance.
Dual LAN ports for failover and Link Aggregation support
Equipped with two Ethernet ports featuring failover and Link Aggregation support, DS416 ensures continual network uptime even if LAN connection malfunction occurs on one port, reducing the chance of service disruption and costly downtime. Link Aggregation improves connection speeds beyond the limits of a single network cable or port.
Easy installation, hassle-free maintenance
Easy installation and hot-swappable disk support ensures easy maintenance and continuous service uptime should a disk need replacement. In addition, DS416 incorporates a passive cooling design to reduce dependency on the dedicated processor cooling fan, thus mitigating any critical point of failure. When the system detects a fan failure, the built-in redundancy mechanism ensures continuous operation until the replacement fan arrives.
Ultimate file center
File Station is a fast and secure feature for sharing and managing your files stored on DS416. Just drag-n-drop and upload data from Mac or PC. Advanced filters make it easy to search for documents, photos, or videos. With built-in FTP or email clients, DS416 lets you organize and share files through an advanced web application effortlessly. You can even share files and folders with others by simply sending a link. Files can be reached on mobile devices via the companion mobile app DS file. HTTPS, SSL/TLS encryption, and link expiry dates also ensure file sharing over the Internet is highly secure.

Increase business productivity with cloud solutions
With comprehensive cloud solutions, DS416 lets you create your own private cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which keeps up to 32 historical versions, allowing you to restore a file back to previous version or recover deleted files. With the mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprises, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can handpick individual folders that they want to sync to different devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size. Folders synced by Cloud Station can be encrypted on DSM — no one will be able to access its content without your private key.
