The RackStation RS814+ 4-Bay 1U Rackmount NAS Server from Synology comes with an Intel Atom dual core 2.13 GHz CPU with built-in floating-point unit and four hot-swappable storage bays capable of holding both 2.5" or 3.5" SATA II hard drives. It is equipped with four gigabit LANs and with Link Aggregation enabled, and delivers an exceptional 330 MB/s reading speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows environment, and 196 MB/s writing*. With 2 GB DDR3 RAM (expandable, up to 4 GB), twice the size of its predecessor, RS814+ rackmount NAS server provides multi-tasking performance that your data-intensive applications demand for a storage system. It also features two USB 3.0 ports, efficiently saving the time needed for external data storage.

The 20 TB storage capacity of the RS814+ NAS server can be expanded to 40 TB by the Synology RX410 expansion unit (separately purchased). The Synology RX410 securely connects to this NAS server via an eSATA cable with specially-designed locking connectors. This RS814+ 1U rackmount NAS server offers a high-performance, scalable, and full-featured network attached storage solution. It meets the needs of small and medium-sized business that requires an efficient way to centralize data protection, simplify data management, and rapidly scale storage capacity with minimal time spent on setup and management.

Experience High Performance Data Throughput
The RackStation RS814+ 1U rackmount NAS server is equipped with four gigabit LANs and with Link Aggregation enabled, it delivers an exceptional 330 MB/s reading speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows environment, and 196 MB/s writing*. With 2 GB DDR3 RAM (expandable, up to 4 GB), twice the size of its predecessor, this rackmount NAS server provides multi-tasking performance that your data-intensive applications demand for a storage system. It also features two USB 3.0 ports, efficiently saving the time needed for external data storage. 1
Resilient and Reliable
In addition to its performance, RS814+ rackmount NAS server is built for reliability. Four LAN ports provide redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure while hot-swappable drives also help to minimize system downtime during drive replacement. Should a fan fail, built-in redundancy mechanisms will spin up functional fans to improve ventilation.

Synology High Availability (SHA) can ensure seamless transition between clustered servers in the event of server failure with minimal impact to applications, and to decrease the risk of unexpected interruptions and downtime.
Virtualization Compliance
With the iSCSI support in DSM, RS814+ NAS server provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere 5, and VAAI integration, this server helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power for unparalleled performance and efficiency in VMware environments. It is a suitable alternative to SAN solution for businesses. Affordable and cost-effective, iSCSI allows SMB users to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.
Robust and Scalability Up to 40 TB
When the storage capacity of the RS814+/RS814RP+ NAS server is nearing its limits, it can easily be expanded by the Synology RX410 expansion unit. The Synology RX410 securely connects to this NAS server via an eSATA cable with specially-designed locking connectors, and expands the existing storage on this rackmount NAS server up to a maximum 40 TB capacity.
Fit to Business Environment
Windows ADS integration allows the RS814+ NAS server to fit in an existing business network environment with no need to recreate users' accounts on this server. The User Home feature minimizes the administrator's effort in creating a private shared folder for a large amount of users.

Windows ACL support on this NAS server provides better access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing IT staffs to set up privileges to files and folders on this NAS server through their familiar Windows user interface. The privileges set on Windows ACL will be applied to all access entries, including AFP, FTP, File Station, NFS, and WebDAV. The secure privilege offers IT staff peace of mind, no worries about any loopholes.
Full-Featured Business Applications
This RS814+ NAS server runs on the operating system, Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), offering comprehensive applications and features designed specifically for SMBs. Comprehensive network protocol support assures seamless file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.

The encrypted FTP server and the Web-based file explorer, Synology File Station, simplify Internet file access. HTTPS, firewall, and IP auto-block support ensure file sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level.

The additional features allow the RS814+ NAS server to replace several pieces of network hardware. Synology Web Station with support for PHP/MySQL content allows for the hosting of up to 30 websites on a single RS814+ rackmount NAS server. Synology Surveillance Station offers a centralized interface to safeguard the office environments by deploying IP cameras throughout the network. This NAS server features a mail server that can work with mail clients such as Mac Mail or Windows Outlook, and the USB printer sharing capability minimizes businesses' printing cost by sharing printing resources throughout the office. Cloud Station allows users to sync files among multiple devices, including Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android tablets or phones, keeping everything up-to-date.
Energy Efficient Design
The RS814+ NAS server is designed and developed with energy efficiency in mind. Compared with the average storage server counterparts, this NAS server consume a relatively low amount of power. The support of Wake on LAN/WAN and scheduled power on and off can further reduce power consumption and operation cost. The hard disk drive hibernation can be configured to take effect automatically when the system has been inactive for a specified period of time. This saves energy and extends the lifespan of the hard disks.

This RS814+ rackmount NAS server is supplied with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials.
