The RackStation RS815RP+ 12TB (4 x 3TB) 4-Bay NAS Server from Synology is a reliable, high performance network attached storage solution for SMB environments seeking strong performance that is essential for their data transmission needs. This unit has four drive bays, each of which has a Seagate 3TB SATA III 6 Gb/s NAS drive, for a total storage capacity of 12TB. Each NAS drive also has a rotational speed of 7200 rpm and a 128MB cache. Should users need to expand the overall capacity of their RS815RP+, the optional RX415 expansion unit offers an additional four drive bays that are identical to those offered by the RS815RP+. Additionally, should power to the NAS be interrupted, the RS815RP+ comes equipped with a 250W redundant power supply.

The Rackstation RS815RP+ is powered by a 2.4 GHz Intel Atom C2538 Quad-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple functions simultaneously. The built-in 2GB of DDR3 RAM will allow quick access to frequently-used files and programs and may also be upgraded to a total of 6GB by installing a 4GB module into the available memory slot. Network connectivity is achieved via the 4 x Gigabit Ethernet ports with failover support, which helps to provide redundancy in the case that a LAN connection malfunction occurs on one port. In addition, link aggregation, powered by four LAN ports, helps to increase connection speeds beyond the limits of a single network port or cable.

The RackStation RS815RP+ runs on the DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, which offers helps simplify managing your RS815RP+, as well as accessing and sharing data. Synology's Package Center also lets users download and install add-on packages that are designed for individual or business needs.

The RackStation RS815RP+ operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack and two AC power cords.

Quad-Core CPU
The RS815RP+ is powered by a quad-core CPU running at 2.4 GHz. Combined with 2GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 6GB), it delivers average 389.03 MB/s read speeds and 361.33 MB/s write speeds. With this baseline performance and 2GB DDR3 RAM that is expandable to 6GB, the RS815RP+ is a powerful 1RU NAS server for mission-critical tasks of SMB
Encrypted Data Transmission with AES-NI
The RS815RP+ features a hardware encryption engine, which offloads encryption calculation tasks away from the main CPU. That means files and folders are encrypted on the fly without compromising the performance, delivering encrypted data transmission speeds over 388.66 MB/s reading and 158.9 MB/s writing
Scalability up to 8 Drives
When your data storage is nearing its limits, the RS815RP+ can be connected to a dedicated RX415 expansion unit, letting you scale up to 8 drives for additional storage on the fly. The RX415 connects through an eSATA cable with specially-designed locking connectors
Quad LAN Ports for Failover and Link Aggregation Support
To help ensure your business continuity, the RS815RP+ features four built-in Gigabit LAN ports supporting failover, which is engineered to provide reliable redundancy even if a LAN connection malfunction occurs on one port, reducing the chance of service disruption and costly downtime. In addition, Link Aggregation powered by four LAN ports helps increase connection speeds beyond the limits of a single network cable or port.
SSD Cache Technology
The RS815RP+ enables the combination of hard drives and SSD cache, boosting throughput efficiently while minimizing cost per gigabyte. With a full SSD cache support, the RS815RP+ helps offer a reduction in I/O latency
DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS
Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a browser-based operating system which makes managing your Synology NAS simple. Featuring a user-friendly 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
Storage for Virtualization Environments
The RS815RP+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere 5 & VAAI integration, the RS815RP+ 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
Business Environment Integration
With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, the RS815RP+ enables seamless account integration. The User Home feature can automatically create a "home" folder for every user account to minimize the administrator's effort in repeatedly creating "home" folders for all accounts. Windows ACL support on the RS815RP+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on the RS815RP+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, the RS815RP+ can help eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators' efficiency
Optimize Storage Management
With Synology's Storage Manager, the RS815RP+ allows for flexible storage deployment and utilization. You can optimize RAID configurations with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) while providing redundant data protection. Other features such as multiple volumes on a single RAID and Global Hot Spare also help enhance management efficiency and fit deployment of any kind
Synology CMS (Central Management System)
For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all of them from a single point of entry. Through a user-friendly interface, you can obtain an overview on resource consumption and logs, helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS can do more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without extra configuration
All-in-One Server
With just one RS815RP+, it's possible to handle a vast amount of tasks. The RS815RP+ 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 the RS815RP+ act as a VPN server to access company's resources remotely, and more
Business Continuity
Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. The RS815RP+ supports Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, with 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, the RS815RP+ also helps ensure redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure
Backup Solutions
The Backup & Replication feature allows you to back up data from one RS815RP+ to another DiskStation, or rsync-compatible servers. It also provides the flexibility to restore the server to any particular point in time, and back up modified blocks to optimize storage and processing time. In addition, the RS815RP+ offers you the capability to back up iSCSI LUNs with no extra charge. Businesses can enjoy efficient backup performance with "Point-in-time copy" technology for data consistence and incremental backup to speed up processing time
Cloud Solutions
With comprehensive cloud solutions, the RS815RP+ lets you create your own private cloud easily. Cloud Station is a package used 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 helps ensure 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
Secure Your Data
The RS815RP+ offers security measures to help 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, the RS815RP+ provides other security add-ons, such as AES encryption, 2-Step verification, an IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention
