Synology unveiled their newest rackmounted NAS dubbed the RS2416+ and RS2416RP+ that features a redundant PSU. The 12-bay NAS can easily be expanded on the fly for up to 24 drives and should bring a good performance thanks to great hardware.
The Synology RS2416+ is equipped with a quad-core Atom C2538 CPU and comes with built-in AES-NI hardware encryption engine, and 2GB RAM that is expandable up to 6GB. The NAS comes with four Gigabit Ethernet ports that support failover and Link Aggregation as well as two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports.
The RS2416+ supports the Btrfs file system and offers metadata mirroring and checksums that guarantee a higher level of data availability and survivability. Snapshots can be automatically captured as frequently as every five minutes, allowing businesses to go back in time and recover previous versions of files and folders. You can set it to retain up to 256 daily, weekly, or monthly snapshots when equipped with expanded memory.
“Small- and medium-sized enterprises need a storage solution that grows with them, while also ensuring past documents, records, and other important data are protected against human error or unforeseen hardware errors. With advanced data protection and integrity mechanisms, the new RS2416+/RS2416RP+ provides the ideal choice for storing a business’ crucial data,” said Michael Wang, Product Manager at Synology Inc.
Both the RS2416+ and the RS2416RP+ with redundant PSU are now shipping globally. The MSRP for the RS2416+ is set to £1290 inc VAT and €1380 before taxes. The RS2416RP+ UK MSRP is £1620 inc VAT and €1825 before taxes.
