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.1 That means you can safeguard data without sacrificing performance.


Dual LAN ports with failover and Link Aggregation

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.

USB 3.0 ensures speedy transfers to external storage

DS416 optimizes your working experience by enabling faster and more efficient data transfers. Equipped with one USB 3.0 interface in the front panel for quick access, and two USB 3.0 interfaces in the back, for external storage access is made fast and easy.


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.
