This B&H Kit combines the Synology DiskStation DS418play 4-Bay NAS Enclosure with four WD 6TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" hard drives for a total storage capacity of 24TB.
Synology DiskStation DS418play 4-Bay NAS Enclosure
Built with a dual-core processor, an AES-NI hardware encryption engine, Btrfs file system support, and Cinema 4K video transcoding, the DiskStation DS418play 4-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology is designed as a multimedia-enhanced personal cloud station that can act as a centralized multimedia hub for those who need an all-around storage solution that has been optimized to not only safeguard data, but also transcode up to two channels of H.265/H.264 4K videos simultaneously. It is equipped with four drive bays that are capable of natively support 3.5" SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5" SATA hard drives and SSDs. Using its four drive bays, this NAS will allow you to store and share a large number of files, including videos, music, photos, and documents with up to 2048 user accounts and 200 maximum concurrent connections.
The DS418play runs on Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Its CPU is a 2.0 GHz Intel Celeron J3355 Dual-Core with a burst frequency of up to 2.5 GHz, and its 2GB of DDR3L RAM, which can be upgraded to 6GB, allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving encrypted sequential read speeds of up to 226 MB/s and encrypted sequential write speeds of up to 185 MB/s, while a dedicated hardware transcoding engine can transcode H.264 (AVC), H.265 (HEVC), MPEG-2, and VC-1 video at resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 at up to 30 fps via Video Station and DS video. This allows 4K videos to be converted and played on-the-fly on devices that do not natively support Ultra HD formats.
Also featured are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports which allow it to be connected to your Windows or Mac system, and network connectivity is achieved via the dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, which support link aggregation and failover and allow your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network. Data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android applications. For those who require RAID support, the DS418play 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 DS418play is engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer two 92 x 92mm fans to help keep the system running cool at all times, its noise dampening design of 20.5 dB(A) makes for quiet operations. The server supports numerous scheduled power on / off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses.
The Synology DiskStation DS418play 4-Bay NAS Enclosure operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, a 90W AC power adapter, a power cord, and two RJ45 LAN cables. It is protected by a limited 2-year warranty.
