Next-generation data protection and integrity

When dealing with large-scale data storage, businesses require a solution that offers reliable backup and prevents file corruption. With support for the next-generation Btrfs file system, RS2416+/?RS2416RP+ ensures information is stored with a high level of data integrity, while providing flexible and efficient data protection tools.


Fast and efficient snapshots

Snapshots preserve the history of a shared folder allowing you to save up to 2561 backup copies for point-in-time recovery. Snapshots can be automatically captured up to every 5 minutes, without noticeably impacting system performance.

Metadata mirroring and survivability

Btrfs file system stores two copies of critical metadata on a volume, improving the availability and ensuring the integrity of your file system.

Corruption detection and correction

Btrfs generates checksums for data and metadata, and then verifies the checksums during each read process to ensure the integrity of the filesystem and files. If the file system discovers a mismatch, metadata will be repaired to keep file system consistent. In the mean time, corrupted files will be reported and logged.

Customizable quotas for shared folders

With Btrfs, you can specify a storage limit for each shared folder, making it possible to precisely control space consumption when multiple teams or departments save files on the same Synology NAS server.


Quad-core CPU for speedy performance

RS2416+/RS2416RP+ is powered by a quad-core CPU running at 2.4 GHz. Combined with 2GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 6GB), it delivers blazing-fast performance over 450 MB/s reading and 380 MB/s writing2. This kind of power makes it easy for RS2416+/RS2416RP+ to run multiple applications and deliver consistently high throughput to all connected clients.


On-the-fly scalability up to 24 drives

As your data storage needs grow, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ can be connected to a dedicated RX1214/RX1214RP expansion unit3, allowing you to expand storage capacity to 24 drives for a total of 192TB4 without disrupting service. The specially-designed connection cables ensure high-speed data transmission between the main server and expansion unit.


Speedy data encryption with AES-NI

As businesses store more and more critical information in digital form, data encryption has become an essential aspect of any healthy security policy. Equipped with a dedicated AES-NI hardware encryption engine, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ delivers encrypted data transmission speeds over 399 MB/s reading and 198 MB/s writing, making it the ideal digital locker for your sensitive data.


Redundancy mechanisms for higher uptime

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® & VAAI integration, RS2416+/?RS2416RP+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments. Windows ODX support speeds up data manipulation as the data transfer is offloaded. iSCSI also lets SMB users consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.


Protection with LUN backup, snapshot, and clone

RS2416+/?RS2416RP+ enhances the ease of moving and copying data in a virtualized environment with the features LUN Snapshot, clone, and replication. Synology’s LUN Clone and LUN Snapshot only consume 1/1000 of the original size highly optimizing storage usage. In addition, Synology's LUN Snapshot lets you create up 256 snapshots per LUN using point-in-time technology without having any impact on system performance. With better support to servers under VMware vSphere or Windows environment, IT managers can expect guaranteed VM status and data consistency through application-consistent snapshots.


Ensuring business continuity

Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. RS2416+/?RS2416RP+ supports Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former always mirrored to the latter. The Heartbeat mechanism detects regular "heartbeats" between the two servers. If the main server encounters unexpected downtime, the passive server immediately takes over. With multiple LAN ports, RS2416+/?RS2416RP+ also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure.


Secure your data

RS2416+/?RS2416RP+ offers advanced security measures to protect you from potential security holes. Security Advisor analyzes system settings, password strength, network preferences and removes any possible malware. AppArmor blocks malicious programs from accessing unauthorized system resources. You can also customize the trust level in Package Center to avoid installing packages from untrusted sources, safeguarding your NAS from unknown or tampered files. In addition, RS2416+/?RS2416RP+ provides other security add-ons, such as AES encryption, 2-Step verification, IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention.
