    Dual-Core Processor with Floating-Point Unit
    The DS216 delivers an average of over 111 MB/s reading and writing speeds under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment. The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail creation when uploading large amounts of photos or videos.
    Hardware Encryption Engine
    The hardware encryption engine offloads encryption calculation tasks away from the main CPU, which allows the processor to handle other important tasks. When compared to the DS214, the DS216 has a 50% increase in encryption reading speed and an over 110% increase in encryption writing speed.
    Easy Installation
    Hot-swappable drive trays and easy installation ensure easy maintenance and continuous service uptime should a hard drive need replacement. In addition, the DS216 introduces a USB copy button for easy data transmission.
    USB 3.0 Ports
    The DS216 sports two USB 3.0 ports that connect to various kinds of external storage devices and offer fast and efficient file transfer speeds. USB 3.0 technology offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps, which is about 10 times faster than USB 2.0, meaning less time needed to transfer data to external hard drives while consuming less power.
    Four-Levels of Brightness for Front LEDs
    Equipped with adjustable LED indicators, the front LEDs can provide comfortable light levels by letting you control and schedule the indicators' level of brightness accordingly to environmental needs.
    DiskStation Manager Operating System
    Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a browser-based operating system that 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.
    All-in-One Server
    The DS216 can function as multi-function server. You can set it up as a directory server that provides LDAP service, while DNS and DHCP packages allow you to host a domain name server and automate network IP assignment. 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 DS216 act as a VPN server to access company's resources remotely, and more.
    Backup Solution
    The Synology DS216 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 the Synology NAS using Cloud Station, which syncs files across multiple devices, allowing users at different locations to share the same information in real time. Whenever you modify a file, the changes are backed up to the DS216 automatically. Mac users also experience native Apple Time Machine support. You can also back up data from your DS216 to another DiskStation, rsync servers, external drives, or even online storage websites. "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.
    Eco-Friendly NAS Server
    The DS216 only consumes 7.2W in HDD Hibernation and 15.48W in access. With a special fan and a smart airflow design, the DS216 keeps the system running cool 24/7, while its noise dampening design makes it quieter than PC counterparts.

    General Features

    Fill Your NAS with WD Red
    Built for 1 to 8-bay NAS systems, WD Red lets users store their data in one unit
    NASware 3.0 Technology
    Built into every WD Red hard drive, NASware 3.0's technology helps improves your system's storage performance by increasing compatibility, integration, upgradeability, and reliability
    Built for NAS Compatibility
    Desktop drives aren't purpose-built for NAS, but WD Red drives with NASware are. WD's technology helps takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. WD Red is for small NAS systems and WD's algorithm balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments
    Desktop Drives vs. WD Red
    Desktop hard drives are not designed for NAS environments. Do right by your NAS and choose a drive with an array of features to help preserve your data and maintain optimum performance. Take the following into consideration when choosing a hard drive for your NAS:
  • Compatibility: Without being tested for compatibility with your NAS system, improved performance is not guaranteed
  • Reliability: The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a hot one and desktop drives aren't typically tested in those conditions. WD Red is
  • Error Recovery Controls: WD Red NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures within the NAS system. Desktop drives are not typically designed for RAID environments where this can be an issue
  • Noise and Vibration Protection: Designed to operate solo, desktop drives offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration faced in a multi-drive system. WD Red drives are designed for multi-bay NAS systems
  • WD Red for Home
    Stream, backup, share, and organize your digital content at home with a NAS and WD Red drives designed to share content to the devices in your home. Red NASware helps increase your drives' compatibility with your devices, TV, stereo, and more
    WD Red for Small Business
    WD Red is a good hard drive choice for 1 to 8 bay systems. NASware 3.0 allows for integration with your existing network so WD Red can share and backup files at the speed of your business. For larger businesses with up to 16 bays, use WD Red Pro
    3D Active Balance Plus
    This helps ensure your data is protected from excessive vibration and noise in a NAS or RAID environment. This dual-plane balance control helps reduce the degradation of your drive over time
    Reliability
    Since your NAS system is always on, a reliable drive is essential. With an MTBF of up to 1 million hours, the WD Red drive with NASware 3.0 is designed for 24x7 environments
    Cooler Operations
    By reducing power consumption, the operating temperature of your NAS stays cooler. With a lower temperature in your system, you can create a more reliable solution for your NAS
