This B&H Kit combines the Synology DiskStation DS216j 2-Bay NAS Enclosure with two 6TB 3.5" SATA III hard drives for a total storage capacity of 12TB.

  • Synology DiskStation DS216j 2-Bay NAS Enclosure
    Designed for home and personal users, the DiskStation DS216j 2-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology will help you build a personal cloud, while also offering data sharing, multimedia streaming, and cloud synchronization. It is equipped with two drive bays that are capable of supporting 3.5" and 2.5" SATA III (6 Gb/s) and SATA II (3 Gb/s) hard drives. The DS216j supports up to 1,024 user accounts and up to 128 maximum concurrent CIFS/AFP/FTP/File Station connections.

    The DS216j runs the Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. The NAS server is powered by a 1.0 GHz Marvell Armada 385 88F6820 Dual-Core processor and 512MB of DDR3 RAM. The NAS is capable of achieving read speeds of over 112.75 MB/s and write speeds of over 97.6 MB/s when configured as a RAID 1, with Basic, Synology Hybrid, RAID 0, and JBOD also supported. Also featured are two USB 3.0 ports 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. Windows AD and LDAP integration allows the DS216j to fit into almost any existing network environment. File sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level with the HTTPS, firewall, and IP auto-block mechanisms, while data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android apps.

    Using the integrated media server on the DS216j, 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/UPnP compatible device to enjoy your favorite movies or shows stored on the DiskStation. Supported devices include the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

    The DS216j is able to serve as a centralized backup target for all the computers in your home. Windows users can back up data to the DS216j 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.

    The DS216j is also engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer a 92 x 92mm fan and smart airflow to keep the system running cool at all times. The server supports numerous scheduled power on / off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses. The DS216j operates on 100-240 VAC.

Cloud Sync keeps your Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Baidu, and Box storage in sync with your personal DiskStation at home. The Cloud Station Suite allows you to sync files among multiple devices - Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, or Android tablets/phones - keeping everything up-to-date. While you enjoy the seamless file sharing, all the file sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level with the HTTPS, firewall, and IP auto-block mechanisms

  • 2 x WD 6TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD Retail Kit
    Designed with home and small office/business customers in mind, the 6TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD Retail Kit from WD is well-suited for NAS environments with up to eight 3.5" drive bays. Engineered to handle increased workloads, this 6TB drive operates using a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 64MB cache, and a rotational speed of 5400 rpm, all of which help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers with a sustained rate of up to 175 MB/s. This drive also features high levels of reliability, with 600,000 load/unload cycles, <10 in 1014 non-recoverable read errors per bits read, error recovery controls, and 1,000,000 hours MTBF for 1-8 bay NAS systems. Also built into this drive are noise and vibration protection and WD's NASware 3.0 helps increase system compatibility, allowing WD Red drives to be more easily integrated with your existing network infrastructure.

    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
