This B&H Kit combines the Synology RackStation RS4017xs+ 16-Bay NAS Enclosure with sixteen WD 10TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDDs for a total storage capacity of 160B.
Synology RackStation RS4017xs+ 16-Bay NAS Enclosure
The Synology RackStation RS4017xs+ 16-Bay NAS Enclosure features four Gigabit Ethernet and two 10GbE ports as well as sixteen storage bays, so you can provide a custom storage solution for network-connected users. The sixteen bays support SATA-based 2.5" SSDs as well as 2.5" and 3.5" HDDs. Once user-supplied drives are installed into the bays, you can configure them in a RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, JBOD, or Basic mode to preserve data and increase the drives' read and write speeds. Aside from storage capabilities, the RS4017xs+ leverages a 2.1 GHz Intel Xeon D-1541 octa-core processor and 8GB of DDR4 ECC memory to quickly manage and deliver data.
The RackStation RS4017xs+ comes with two expansion port as well as two USB 3.0 ports for attaching optional storage expansion units, thumb drives, and other devices. For future upgrades, the RS4017xs+ can hold up to 64GB of RAM and via two PCie 3.0 x8/x8 slots, can support a 10GbE NIC or the M2D18 dual M.2 SATA SSD adapter card for an SSD cache. To cool all the internal components, three onboard 80mm fans spin at various speeds to help dissipate the internal heat. In addition, the NAS features a 3 RU rack-mountable design and runs on two redundant 800W power supplies.
The RS4017xs+ is built as a reliable storage solution with fast performance at over 690,000 sequential read IOPS and 4900 MB/s sequential read throughputs. DDR4 ECC RDIMM and 10GbE connectivity provide data accuracy and performance for a mission-critical environment.
Scalability and Reliability
The RS4017xs+ provides flexible storage scalability with optional RX1217 or RX1217RP expansion units. You can connect up to 2 expansion units to the RS4017xs+, allowing a business to start small and scale big.
Synology iSCSI storage fully supports most virtualization solutions to enhance work efficiency with easy management interface. VMware vSphere 6 and VAAI integration helps offload storage operations and optimizes computation efficiency. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) speeds up data transfer and migration rate. OpenStack Cinder support turns your Synology NAS into a block-based storage component.
The Btrfs file system introduces advanced storage technologies to meet the management needs of modern large scale businesses: flexible shared folder/user quota system, snapshot replication, file or folder level data restoration, and automatic file self-healing detection and recovery.
The RS4017xs+ comes with a high-availability feature that helps ensure seamless transition between clustered servers in the event of a server failure with minimal impact to applications. To maximize storage space, Hyper Backup is available for backing up data in multiple versions with block-level incremental backup and cross-version deduplication. Moreover, the RS4017xs+ includes Cloud Station suite, providing automatic cross-platform data synchronization with file version control.

WD 10TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD Retail Kit
Tthe 10TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD Retail Kit from WD is a mainstream solution for the higher workloads required by SMB (Small and Medium Business) users in 1- to 8-bay systems and meets the needs of the ZFS community. Engineered to handle increased workloads, this 10TB drive operates using a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 256MB cache, and a rotational speed of 5400 rpm, all of which help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers with a sustained rate of up to 210 MB/s. This drive also features high levels of reliability, with 600,000 load/unload cycles, <1 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.
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
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
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
