This B&H Kit combines the Synology RackStation RS815RP+ 4-Bay NAS Server with 4 x 2TB internal hard drives for a total capacity of 8TB.
The RackStation RS815RP+ 4-Bay NAS Server 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 supports the included 4 x 2TB 3.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s hard drives. Should users ever wish to upgrade the included drives, this NAS also natively supports 2.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s hard drives and SSDs, as well as 3.5" and 2.5" SATA II 3 Gb/s hard drives and SSDs. 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+. This NAS supports read speeds up to 389.03 MB/s and write speeds up to 361.33 MB/s. 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 (1 x 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. There are also 2 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 x eSATA port, and network connectivity is achieved via the 4 x Gigabit Ethernet ports with failover support. Failover support helps to provide redundancy in the case that a LAN connection malfunction occurs on one port. In addition, link aggregation, powered by the 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.

With a full SSD cache support, the RS815RP+ helps offer a reduction in I/O latency. It also supports a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, Basic, Synology Hybrid RAID, and JBOD. Each of these helps to provide data redundancy, performance, or a combination of both.
