Synology RS217 Overview

This B&H Kit combines the Synology RackStation RS217 2-Bay NAS Enclosure with two WD 8TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" hard drives for a total storage capacity of 16TB.

Synology RackStation RS217 2-Bay NAS Enclosure

The RackStation RS217 2-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology provides two storage bays and two Gigabit Ethernet ports, so you can create a storage pool of shared data with network-connected users. The two SATA-based bays are capable of supporting 2.5"/3.5" hard drives and 2.5" solid-state drives. Once drives are installed, you can configure the drives as a RAID 0, 1, JBOD, Hybrid, or Basic array. Furthermore, managing the Synology DiskStation Manager operating system is done with an Armada 385 processor and 512MB of DDR3 memory.

With link aggregation and failover support, the RS217 can deliver data stored on your drives reliably and quickly. For cooling the drives, it comes with three 40mm fans that can be set in either cool or quiet modes. There are also one USB 2.0 port, two USB 3.0 ports, and one eSATA port for connecting external devices to this enclosure.

Performance

Powered by a 1.33 GHz dual-core processor, RS217 delivers performance with encrypted reading and writing speeds of 113 MB/s and 67 MB/s with link aggregation enabled, reaching a 214% improvement in overall encrypted data processing when compared with its predecessor. The RS217 also provides non-encrypted performance exceeding 210 MB/s in reading and 127 MB/s in writing.

Compact

RS217 fits into two-post racks and wall mount racks without additional rail kits. It is also resilient enough to withstand an operating temperature of up to 122°F (50°C). The compact design offers an affordable solution for both industrial standard environments and smaller server rooms with limited space.

Dual LAN Design

RS217 comes with dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports with failover support to ensure continual network service in case of LAN failure. The hot-swappable design facilitates easy and risk-free hard drive replacement. The hard drive tray lock further secures your hard drives from unauthorized or accidental withdrawal.

Convenient Connectivity

To ensure scalability, RS217 provides an eSATA and two USB 3.0 ports in the back, along with one USB 2.0 port on the front panel for quick access.

DiskStation Manager

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.

Collaboration Tools

RS217 comes with a comprehensive set of office applications, allowing you to maximize work productivity and improve team dynamics. Whether you are keeping track of household expenses or updating your project status, via SpreadSheet, you can work together with other people on the same document in real-time as if you were sitting next to each other - even when you are miles apart. In addition, Note Station lets you and your team keep detailed notes and accomplish more tasks with features such as charts, presentation view, mail clipper, and more.

Compatible Sharing

Enjoy seamless file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms as RS217 offers comprehensive network protocol support including FTP, SMB2, AFP, NFS and WebDAV. With Windows AD and LDAP integration, RS217 can fit effortlessly 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.

Business Environments Friendly

With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, RS217 enables seamless account integration. The User Home feature can automatically create a "home" folder for every user account to minimize the administrator's effort in repeatedly creating "home" folders for all accounts. Windows ACL support on RS217 allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS217 through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS217 can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators' efficiency.

Cloud Service

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. With Cloud Sync, you can even sync your DiskStation with popular cloud-based services, establishing a hybrid cloud to enjoy more storage flexibility and prevent data loss.

Backup Data

Synology RS217 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 Synology NAS using Cloud Station Backup. Whenever you modify a file, the changes are backed up to RS217 automatically. Mac users also enjoy native Apple Time Machine support. You can also back up data from your RS217 to another DiskStation, rsync servers, external drives, or even Amazon S3, Glacier cloud service, Microsoft Azure, SFR, and hicloud. Synology Hyper Backup 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.

Connect Your Data Quickly and Easily

With Synology QuickConnect, you don't have to deal with a difficult DDNS setup. QuickConnect frees you from complicated router configuration and port-forwarding, so your entertainment and work files can be accessed on any computer, laptop, or mobile device instantly without extra charge.

Mobility Apps

DS note, DS audio, DS video, DS photo, DS cloud, DS file, DS get, and DS cam allow you to access and manage the contents of your RS217 with smartphones and tablets.

Eco-Friendly NAS Server

RS217 only consumes 12.9W in HDD Hibernation and 21.25W in access. With special fans and the smart airflow design, the RS217 keeps the system running cool 24/7, while its noise dampening design makes it quiet.

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
