Synology DS416 overview

  • 1Description

The Synology DiskStation DS416slim 4-Bay NAS Enclosure features four 2.5" bays as well as a compact design to provide you with an easily transportable storage solution. The four bays are compatible with SATA-based 2.5" hard drives and SSDs in the capacities of up to 2TB. Once drives are installed, data is managed by a dual-core 1 GHz Marvell Armada 385 processor and 512MB of DDR3 memory. For cooling the system and drives, a 60mm fan is on board. Sharing data with connected devices on a network can be accomplished with the two Gigabit Ethernet ports, which also support failover and Link Aggregation. In addition to the Ethernet ports, two USB 3.0 ports are available for backing up data to external drives.

High-Performance and Encryption Engine
The DS416slim sports a dual-core processor, dedicated encryption engine, and 512MB of DDR3 RAM. With link aggregation enabled, the DS416slim delivers up to 170.23 MB/s in reading and 77.62 MB/s in writing. Reading through a single Gigabit LAN connection is up to 112.77 MB/s.
Dual LAN with Failover and Link-Aggregation Support
Equipped with dual LAN ports, the DS416slim ensures continual network service in case one LAN connection fails, decreasing the risk of network downtime. Link Aggregation takes advantage of the two LAN ports to enhance connection speeds beyond the limits of a single cable or port.

Featuring an intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data smarter and simpler.

With built-in FTP or email clients, the DS416slim lets you organize and share files through an advanced web application effortlessly. You can even share files and folders with others by simply sending a link. Files can be reached on mobile devices via the companion mobile app DS file. HTTPS, SSL/TLS encryption, and link expiry dates also ensure file sharing over the Internet is secure.

Backup Data in Multiple Ways
No matter you are a Windows or Mac user, you can back up everything on your computer directly to the Synology NAS using Cloud Station. Apple Time Machine is supported for Mac users. You can specify the backup destination on local hard drives, connected USB storage devices, or public cloud services. Additionally, "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 specific data blocks that are changed between versions.

Cloud Station lets you sync files among DiskStations and multiple devices, including Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, as well as Windows mobile devices, whereas 2-way sync allows file synchronization among different DiskStations. You can even sync the DiskStation with a cloud service to establish a hybrid cloud setup to enjoy more storage flexibility and prevent data loss.

    Synology DS416 reviews

    DiskStation DS416slim 4-Bay NAS Enclosure is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic This NAS works well and the OS is great. Lots one can do with it. This is not just a file server. Camera recorder, web server, ftp server, and the list goes on. I have 4 1TB drives running in here in RAID 5. Take note, if you buy this, make sure you give this machine 2-3 days for disk setup. I put 4 blank 1TB drives in mine on a Sunday 7pm and it took until Tuesday afternoon for the parity scan to finish verification. If you use 2TB, it is going to take even longer. It did seem to get faster as it went. I would buy again and may buy another.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little box that's a NAS plus way more The initial setup is a bit overwhelming just because there are so many options. Every screen provoked a, "oh, it does that too?" response. Because of it's integration with so many functions like identity, home directories, encryption, web service/Wordpress/MySQL, etc., it's in many respects a small business server / or LAMP plus NAS plus plus. I'm decommissioning an old MS SBS and got this just for the NAS function / SMB replacement. It looks like it will solve that and so much more. Two weeks in, it all just works, great little box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small NAS Easy to set-up and install on my network. Takes up very little space and is extremly quite. Lots of setup options but not too complicated.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup, good performance, reliable This NAS enclosure does everything as advertised. I also appreciate the included apps available to fulfill it purpose. It is essentially a network server, with built-in hardware RAID. I'm still learning how to extend its usefulness as stable and reliable storage in a back-up device role. As I learn more about it, I can tell it is capable of a lot.
