Synology RackStation RS2818RP+ overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit combines the Synology RackStation RS2818RP+ 16-Bay NAS Server with sixteen WD 6TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDDs for a total storage capacity of 96TB.

  • Synology RackStation RS2818RP+ 16-Bay NAS Server

    Well-suited for small- and medium-sized businesses, the RackStation RS2818RP+ 16-Bay NAS Server from Synology delivers flexibility in terms of its expandable storage capacity, upgradeable memory, and optional high-speed NIC support. It can serve as a backup target for distributed businesses, a centralized file server, or a backup target for employee workstations in growing businesses. This unit has a 3 RU form factor and 16 drive bays, each of which natively supports 3.5" SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5" SATA hard drives and SSDs. Should users need to expand the overall capacity of their RS2818RP+, the optional RX1217/RX1217RP expansion units offer an additional 12 drive bays, and one of these units is supported via an integrated expansion port. Additionally, should power to the NAS be interrupted, the RS2818RP+ comes equipped with a 500W redundant power supply.

    The RackStation RS2818RP+ is powered by a 2.1 GHz Intel Atom C3538 Quad-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple functions simultaneously. The built-in 4GB of DDR4 RAM will allow quick access to frequently used files and programs and may also be upgraded to a total of 64GB by installing four 16GB modules into the available memory slots. Also featured are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, which allow it to be connected to your Windows or Mac system. Network connectivity is achieved via the four Gigabit Ethernet ports with failover support, which helps to provide redundancy in the case that a LAN connection malfunction occurs on one port. In addition, link aggregation, powered by four LAN ports, helps to increase connection speeds beyond the limits of a single network port or cable. If you're looking to expand this NAS with a M.2 SSD for caching or 10 Gigabit Ethernet, there is a PCIe Gen 3.0 x8 slot that runs at x4.

    The RackStation RS2818RP+ runs on the DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, which helps simplify managing your NAS, as well as accessing and sharing data. A variety of RAID modes are supported, which help provide users with data redundancy, speed, or a combination of both. Supported RAID modes include RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, Basic, and Synology Hybrid RAID. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available, allowing each drive bay to be individually utilized.

    Synology has engineered the RackStation RS2818RP+ to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer three 80 x 80mm fans to help keep the system running cool, the server supports numerous scheduled power on / off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses. The RackStation RS2818RP+ operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack and two AC power cords. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year hardware warranty.

  • 16 x WD 6TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD

    Designed with home and small office/business customers in mind, the 6TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD 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
