Overview

Synology DiskStation DS216 2-Bay NAS Server, CPU Marvell Armada Dual Core 1.3GHz, DDR3 512MB, 1x GbE...

Features

Dual-core CPU with floating-point unit enhances productivity

DS216 delivers outstanding read/write performance with an average over 111 MB/s reading and writing speeds under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment. The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail creation when uploading large amounts of photos or videos.


Hardware encryption engine enhances file transfer speeds

DS216 is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads encryption calculation tasks away from the main CPU. Thus, the CPU can be free for other important tasks. DS216, compared with its predecessor DS214, has a 50% increase in encryption reading speed and an over 110% increase in encryption writing speed.



Easy installation, hassle-free maintenance

Hot-swappable drive trays support and easy installation ensure easy maintenance and continuous service uptime should a hard drive need replacement. In addition, DS216 introduces a USB copy button for easy data transmission.


USB 3.0 ensures speedy transfers to external storage

DS216 boasts USB 3.0 to connect to various kinds of external storage devices, while ensuring fast and efficient file transfer speeds. USB 3.0 support offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0), meaning less time needed to transfer data to external hard drives while consuming less power.


Thoughtful four-level brightness control for front LEDs

Equipped with adjustable LED indicators, DS216's front LEDs can provide comfortable brightness by controlling and scheduling its four-stage brightness, letting you flexibly decide the intensity of the front LEDs according to environment needs.


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.


All-in-one server

With just one DS216, it's possible to handle a vast amount of tasks. DS216 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 DS216 act as a VPN server to access company's resources remotely, and more.


Effective backup solution

Synology DS216 can serve as a centralized backup target. Whether you are a Windows or Mac user, you can back up everything on your computer directly to Synology NAS using Cloud Station. Whenever you modify a file, the changes are backed up to DS216 automatically. Mac users also enjoy native Apple® Time Machine support. You can also back up data from your DS216 to another DiskStation, rsync servers, external drives, or even Amazon® S3, Glacier cloud service, Microsoft Azure, SFR, and hicloud. "Backup & Replication" allows you to schedule backup tasks and restore the server to any particular point in time, while minimizing storage consumption and processing time by saving only the specific data block that has been changed between versions.


Increase business productivity with cloud solutions

With comprehensive cloud solutions, DS216 lets you create your own private cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which keeps up to 32 historical versions, allowing you to restore a file back to previous version or recover deleted files. With the mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprises, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can handpick individual folders that they want to sync to different devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size. Folders synced by Cloud Station can be encrypted on DSM - no one will be able to access its content without your private key.


Eco-friendly NAS server

All Synology NAS is designed with energy efficiency in mind. DS216 only consumes W in HDD Hibernation and 15.48W in access*. With special fan and the smart airflow design, the DS216 keeps the system running cool 24/7, while its noise dampening design makes it quieter than PC counterparts. Synology acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen, so all Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials.
