Product information: Rackstation RS2414+ 12-Bay Gigabit Ethernet Network Attached Storage Enclosue Unpopulated
High-performance & scalable NAS server
Offering a high-performance, scalable, and full-featured network attached storage solution, RS2414+ and RS2414RP+ (equipped with redundant power supplies) meet the needs of businesses that requires an efficient way to centralize data protection, simplify data management, and rapidly scale storage capacity.
Dual core CPU with floating-point unit enhances productivity
RS2414+/RS2414RP+ is equipped with a built-in floating-point unit which enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, enabling higher working efficiency. RS2414+/RS2414RP+ delivers an average 348.56 MB/sec reading speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment, and 198.92 MB/sec writing1. With 2GB RAM, RS2414+/RS2414RP+ exhibits a significant boost in multi-tasking performance.
Robust scalability up to 144TB
When the storage capacity of RS2414+/RS2414RP+ is nearing its limits, RS2414+/RS2414RP+ can easily be expanded up to 24 drives with a total of 144TB2 by RX1214/RX1214RP3. It securely connects to the Synology RX1214/RX1214RP with specially-designed connection cable to ensure maximum throughput.
Reliable redundancy mechanisms
Boasting four built-in LAN ports with failover combined with hot-swappable drives, RS2414+/RS2414RP+ ensures continual service uptime during drive replacement or unexpected LAN failure. The passive cooling technology eliminates dependency upon a dedicated processor cooling fan. Should a fan fail, the built-in redundancy mechanisms will spin up functional fan(s) to improve ventilation. In addition, RS2414RP+ supports redundant power supplies which can ensure service uptime.
Easy installation with screw-less Rail Kit
RS2414+/RS2414RP+ accommodates the optional rail kit Synology RKS1314, helping you install RS2414+/RS2414RP+ on a rack effortlessly. Coming with sliding rails and screw-less design, RKS1314 lets you slide RS2414+/RS2414RP+ in and out for easy maintenance, cleaning and replacement.
Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager
Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, 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, meaning you can enjoy more entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.
Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments
RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments. Windows ODX support speeds up data manipulation as the data transfer is offloaded. iSCSI also lets SMB users consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.
Fit into business environments easily
With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ 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 RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.
Optimize storage management
With Synology's Storage Manager, RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ allows for flexible storage deployment and utilization. You can optimize RAID configuration with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) while providing redundant data protection. Other features such as multiple volumes on single RAID and Global Hot Spare also greatly enhance management efficiency and fit deployment of any kind.
Synology CMS (Central Management System)
For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all of them from a single point of entry. Through a simple interface, you can obtain a clear overview on resource consumption and logs, helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS can do much more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without extra configuration.
RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ can replace several pieces of network hardware and serve as your multi-function server. Directory Server provides LDAP service, while DNS and DHCP packages allow you to host a domain name server and automate network IP assignment at no extra cost. With only one RS2414+/?RS2414RP+, you can do more than you imagine - host up to 30 websites with Web Station, safeguard the office environments with Surveillance Station, send and receive mail using your own email domain with Mail Station, share printing capability with Printer Server, make RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ act as a VPN server to access company's resources remotely, and more. RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ helps your company gain a competitive edge.
Ensuring business continuity
Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ supports Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former always mirrored to the latter. The Heartbeat mechanism detects regular "heartbeats" between the two servers. If the main server encounters unexpected downtime, the passive server immediately takes over. With multiple LAN ports, RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure.
Powerful backup solutions to enhance efficiency
Backup & Replication feature allows you to back up data from one RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ to another DiskStation, or rsync-compatible servers. It also provides the flexibility to restore the server to any particular point in time, and back up modified blocks to optimize storage and processing time. In addition, RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ offers you the capability to back up iSCSI LUNs with no extra charge. Businesses can enjoy efficient backup performance with "Point-in-time copy" technology for data consistence and incremental backup to speed up processing time.
Increase business productivity with cloud solutions
With comprehensive cloud solutions, RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ lets you create your own cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices with the benefit of better privacy for important data. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which retains up to 32 versions to avoid file overwriting. With mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprise, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can customize synchronization rules, such as avoiding syncing large files to optimize bandwidth usage.
Secure your data
RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ provides share-level AES 256-bit encryption to block off unauthorized access attempts. Once you create and encrypt a shared folder, people without the encryption key will not be able to use the encrypted data even if they remove the hard drives from your RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ and mount it on their device. 2-Step verification gives an extra layer of protection as 6-digit one-time code sending to your mobile device is required for login. In addition, RS2414+/?RS2414RP+ provides other security add-ons, such as IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention. These enhancements ensures a secure DSM environment.
