Product Information

RackStation RS2416RP+: Cutting-edge data protection and integrity for modern business
Designed for growing businesses, RS2416RP+ is a powerful network-attached storage solution featuring schedulable snapshots and resilient data integrity powered by the Btrfs file system, on-the-fly scalability up to 24 drives, as well as reliable performance required by modern workplaces.

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, 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 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
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 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, 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.

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, 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
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
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, 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.

With compatibility for major protocols, RS2416RP+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.

Unified storage system
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). 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
RS2416RP+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, 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 by LUN backup, snapshot, and clone
RS2416RP+ enhances the ease of moving and copying data in a virtualized environment with the features - LUN Backup, LUN Snapshot, and LUN Clone. RS2416RP+ offers iSCSI LUN backup at storage level without extra charge. Synology LUN Clone and LUN Snapshot only take up 1/1000 of the original size which highly optimizes 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.

With just one RS2416RP+, it's possible to handle a vast amount of tasks. RS2416RP+ helps your company gain a competitive edge by acting as your multi-function server. Directory Server provides LDAP service, while DNS and DHCP packages allow you to host a domain name server and automate network IP assignment at no extra cost. With Synology's Proxy Server, you can regulate content access and monitor who can access which website while saving bandwidth. You can host up to 30 websites with Web Station, safeguard the office environments with Surveillance Station, send and receive mails using your own email domain with Mail Station, share printing capability with Printer Server, make RS2416RP+ act as a VPN server to access company’s resources remotely, and more.

Ensuring business continuity
Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. 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, RS2416RP+ also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure.

Secure your data
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, RS2416RP+ provides other security add-ons, such as AES encryption, 2-Step verification, IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention.
