Synology DS416j overview

  • 1Description

The DiskStation DS416j 4-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology is a file backup, storage, and sharing solution that is well suited for use as a home storage and entertainment center. It comes equipped with four drive bays that are capable of supporting both 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III 6 Gb/s and SATA II 3 Gb/s hard drives and solid-state drives. Using its four drive bays and hardware encryption, this NAS will allow you to store and share a large number of files, including videos, music, photos, and documents with up to 1,024 users.

The DS416j runs on Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Its CPU is a 1.3 GHz Marvell Armada 388 88F6828 Dual-Core that runs in 32-bit mode and its 512MB of DDR3 RAM allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving read speeds of 112.82 MB/s, write speeds of 101.2 MB/s, and features one USB 3.0 port and one USB 2.0 port, both of which allow it to be connected to your Windows, Mac, or Linux system. Internet connectivity is achieved via the included Gigabit Ethernet port, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network. Data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android applications.

Using the integrated media server on the DS416j, you have the ability to stream digital multimedia content from the DiskStation to media devices for local or remote playback. You may also stream movies and music to a DLNA-compatible device to enjoy your favorite movies or shows stored on the DiskStation.

The DS416j also serves as a centralized backup target for all the computers in your home. Windows users can back up data to the DS416j via Windows Backup, while Mac OS X users will be able to take advantage of native Apple Time Machine integration. You have the ability to set the backup destination to not only be local hard disks, but also connected USB drives or the cloud. The DS416j also supports a variety of RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, Basic, and Synology Hybrid, each of which provides performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require RAID support, JBOD is also supported.

The DS416j is also engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer a larger fan and smart airflow to keep the system running cool at all times, its noise dampening design of 19.1 dB(A) makes for quiet operation. The server supports numerous scheduled power on / off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses.

The DS416j operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, an AC power adapter, an AC power cord, and an Ethernet cable.

Built-In Floating-Point Unit
Powered by a built-in floating-point unit, the DS416j brings an improved multimedia experience to home and personal users. The built-in floating-point unit helps enhance the overall capability of the main CPU and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail creation when uploading large amounts of photos or videos
USB 3.0
The DS416j comes with a USB 3.0 port to connect to various kinds of external storage devices, while ensuring fast and efficient file transfer speeds. Support for USB 3.0 offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gb/s (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0), meaning it takes less time to transfer data to external hard drives, while also consuming less power
Four-Level Brightness Control for Front LEDs
Equipped with flexible LED indicators, the DS416j'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
DiskStation Manager OS
Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a 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
Compatible Sharing
Enjoy file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms as the DS416j offers comprehensive network protocol support including FTP, SMB2, AFP, NFS, and WebDAV. With Windows AD and LDAP integration, the DS416j can fit into any existing network environment - there is no need for IT administrators to maintain two sets of credentials. You also won't worry about missing files with the Recycle Bin feature which is supported on AFP, CIFS, File Station, and WebDAV. All files deleted in a shared folder will be automatically moved into the Recycle Bin
Backup Solution
The Synology DS416j 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 a Synology NAS using Cloud Station. Whenever you modify a file, the changes are backed up to the DS416j automatically. Mac users also enjoy native Apple Time Machine support. You can also back up data from your DS416j to another DiskStation, rsync server, external drive, 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
DLNA Certified Media Server
As a DLNA Certified DMS (Digital Media Server), the DS416j can serve as your primary media server, with the capability to host digital multimedia content for local or remote playback. Once connected to a router, the DS416j streams music, photos, and videos to DLNA-compliant devices, such as DLNA TVs or gaming consoles without any pre-configuration. You can even browse and select content on DS416j using DS audio and designate a DLNA player within the same local network to play it
Stream Content to Your TV
The DS416j is compatible with other devices, letting you manage and enjoy digital content with the devices you already have: computers, mobile devices, TVs, DLNA devices, and stereos. Synology offers support for TV streaming, including Samsung TV, Roku players, Apple TV, and Google Chromecast, meaning you can stream digital content stored on the DS416j to your widescreen TV
Cloud Service
The DS416j brings you a comprehensive cloud service. Cloud Station lets you sync files among DiskStations and multiple devices, including Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android, as well as Windows mobile devices, whereas 2-way sync allows file synchronization among different DiskStations. You can even sync your DiskStation with Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, hubiC, and Baidu Cloud - establish your hybrid cloud to enjoy more storage flexibility and prevent data loss
