The 12TB DiskStation DS2413+ 12-Bay NAS Server
is a B&H Kit
that is a welcome storage solution for medium-sized offices looking to store their data safely and securely, or for individuals with large storage needs who are looking for a comprehensive storage package. It offers 12 bays that can accept 2.5" or 3.5" SATA II hard drives (up to 4TB each) for a maximum capacity of 48TB of storage (12x 1TB hard drives are included for a total of 12TB of raw storage). You can also link the DS2413+ with the DX1211 and seamlessly scale your maximum storage by up to 24 drives or 96TB.
To simplify data management, the DS2413+ features a 2.13GHz dual core processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM (upgradeable to 4GB), and a floating point processor for faster and more efficient computational power.
It also features 2 Gigabit LAN connectors with failover support to deliver access to data even in the case of mechanical failure. If one LAN line fails to work, the other picks up the slack. There's even a built-in passive cooling system. If the main fans fail, and data is compromised, secondary fans will cool down the processor until a replacement is found.
The DS2413+ can also be set up in a variety of server scenarios. With the free add-on packages available through the DSM applications store, Synology provides apps on demand, Cloud storage setups, multimedia solutions and even RAID optimization. You can find DNLA and UPnP support for PS3 and Xbox, audio and video format support, bit torrent protocols, and more.
For the more business-minded, you can set up mail servers, FTP servers with full security protocols, and VPN servers for business-to-client and employee-to-office support. Setting up user accounts and privacy restrictions is not problem for the DS2413+. The NAS server supports almost every networking protocol, and includes support for all types of RAID configurations, including RAID migration for offices transferring their systems from one NAS server to another.
