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. See the white paper for more technical details regarding Btrfs and data protection.
Fast and efficient snapshots
Snapshots preserve the history of a shared folder allowing you to save up to 256 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 survivability of your business's important data.
Corruption detection and correction
By generating checksums for files and metadata, the system can automatically detect and attempt to repair corrupted data or report errors to the administrator.
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 writing. 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 unit, allowing you to expand storage capacity to 24 drives for a total of 168TB without disrupting service. The specially-designed connection cables ensure high-speed data transmission between the main server and expansion unit. Go to the RX1214/RX1214RP product page
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 units 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.
