Overview:

Synology RackStation RS2416+/RS2416RP+ features an all-new quad-core CPU with an AESNI hardware encryption engine, providing outstanding performance and data encryption acceleration. With four built-in Gigabit LAN ports, scalability of up to 24 drives, and advanced snapshot technology for data protection, Synology RS2416+/RS2416RP+ is the ideal storage solution for centralizing data backups, protecting critical assets and sharing files across different platforms. Synology RS2416+/RS2416RP+ is backed with Synology’s 3-year limited warranty.

  • Advanced snapshot technology for data protection
  • Introduced Btrfs file-system with built-in data integrity check
  • High availability technology & redundant power supplies (RS2416RP+ only) ensure service uptime
  • Scale up to 24 drives with Synology RX1214/RX1214RP
  • SSD read/write cache boost overall system performance
  • Four Gigabit LAN ports with failover and Link Aggregation support
  • VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix ready

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 RS2416+/RS2416RP+ is the ideal solution. With a brand-new quad-core CPU, built-in AES-NI hardware encryption engine, expandable RAM module up to 6GB, and read/write-optimized SSD cache, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ delivers up to an average 450.47 MB/s reading and 381.92 MB/s writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment, and an encrypted data transmission at over 399.89 MB/s reading and 198.72 MB/s writing.

Comprehensive Business Applications

Powered by the innovative Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), RS2416+/RS2416RP+ comes fully-equipped with business applications and features:

  • Easy integration with existing business network environments through Windows AD and LDAP directory services without recreating user accounts.
  • Windows ACL support provides fine-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing RS2416+/RS2416RP+ to fit seamlessly into current infrastructure.
  • Built-in backup applications protect information assets by regularly backing up files and iSCSI LUNs locally and remotely.

Resilient and Reliable

In addition to superior performance, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ 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. Passive cooling technology eliminates the dependency upon a dedicated processor cooling fan. Should a fan fail, built-in redundancy mechanisms will spin up functional fan(s) to improve ventilation.

Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses; however, many businesses worldwide still remain unprepared for disaster. Redundant power supply units (RS2416RP+ only) minimizes the chance of a complete system shutdown due to sudden power loss. High Availability Manager can ensure seamless transition between clustered servers in the event of server failure with minimal impact to applications to decrease the risk of unexpected interruptions and costly downtime.

Robust & Affordable Scalability Up to 168 TB

When the storage capacity of RS2416+/RS2416RP+ nears its limit, expansion is easily accomplished with Synology Expansion Unit RX1214/RX1214RP via specially-designed connection cables to maximize data transmission throughput between the main server and the expansion unit. RX1214/RX1214RP can directly expand the existing storage on RS2416+/ RS2416RP+ to a maximum 168 TB capacity.

Virtualization Ready

With iSCSI support in DSM, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere 5 and VAAI integration, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power for unparalleled performance and efficiency in VMware environments. It is the ideal alternative to SAN solution for businesses. Affordable and costeffective, iSCSI allows SMB users to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.

Energy Efficient and Easy Management Design

Synology RS2416+/RS2416RP+ is designed and developed with energy efficiency in mind. Compared with the average storage server counterparts, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ consumes a relatively low amount of power. The support of Wake on LAN/WAN and scheduled power on and off can further reduce power consumption and operation cost. HDD hibernation can be configured to take effect automatically when the system has been inactive for a specified period of time. This not only saves energy but also extends the lifespan of the hard disks.

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.

Features:

Powerful centralized storage solution

Synology RS2416+/RS2416RP+ is a powerful 12-bay, 2U rackmount NAS powered by an Intel quad-core processor. Supporting AES-NI acceleration for fast encryption performance, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ is built to provide rich business services and high service uptime.

Built for high service uptime

RS2416+ is equipped with dual power supplies, increasing service continuity. Both RS2416+ and RS2416RP+ come with four Gigabit network ports to support Link Aggregation and failover. Pair with another RS2416+/RS2416RP+ and form Synology High Availability (SHA). SHA combines two Synology NAS servers into one high-availability cluster (or HA cluster) to maximize service uptime and minimize cost.

Flexible storage scalability

Flexible storage scalability

As your data storage needs grow, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ can be connected with a RX1217/RX1217RP expansion unit for additional storage on the fly, allowing up to 24 drives to be installed with minimal effort.


Ultimate file management and sharing

File Station is a web-based, fast and secure management tool built to allow easy, drag-and-drop operation without requiring any complex setup on Mac or PC. Advanced search and filtering tools allow for easy organization and sharing of files with just a link. Supports SMB, FTP, AFP, NFS, WebDAV, compatible with any environment.

Ultimate file management and sharing

Btrfs: Next generation storage efficiency
