The DS1618+ runs on the Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Its CPU is a 2.1 GHz Intel Atom C3538 Quad-Core and its 4GB of DDR4 RAM, which be upgraded to 32GB, allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving sequential read speeds of up to 2037 MB/s, while a dedicated hardware transcoding engine can transcode 1080p / 30 fps video via Video Station.

Also featured are three USB 3.0 Type-A ports and two eSATA port which allow it to be connected to your Windows or Mac system, and network connectivity is achieved via the four Gigabit Ethernet ports that support Link Aggregation and Failover, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network. For those who require RAID support, the DS1618+ supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, as well Synology Hybrid RAID and Basic RAID, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available, allowing each drive bay to be individually utilized.

The DS1618+ is engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer two 92 x 92mm fans to help keep the system running cool always, its noise dampening design of 23.7 dB(A) makes for quiet operations.
