Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments
RS815+/?RS815RP+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, RS815+/?RS815RP+ 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, RS815+/?RS815RP+ 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 RS815+/?RS815RP+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS815+/?RS815RP+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS815+/?RS815RP+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.
Optimize storage management
With Synology's Storage Manager, RS815+/?RS815RP+ 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.
With just one RS815+/?RS815RP+, it's possible to handle a vast amount of tasks. RS815+/?RS815RP+ helps your company gain a competitive edge by acting 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 Synology's Proxy Server, you can regulate content access and monitor who can access which website while saving bandwidth. You can host up to 30 websites with Web Station, safeguard the office environments with Surveillance Station, send and receive mails using your own email domain with Mail Station, share printing capability with Printer Server, make RS815+/?RS815RP+ act as a VPN server to access company’s resources remotely, and more.
Ensuring business continuity
Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. RS815+/?RS815RP+ 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, RS815+/?RS815RP+ 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 RS815+/?RS815RP+ 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, RS815+/?RS815RP+ 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, RS815+/?RS815RP+ lets you create your own private cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which keeps up to 32 historical versions, allowing you to restore a file back to previous version or recover deleted files. With the mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprises, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can handpick individual folders that they want to sync to different devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size. Folders synced by Cloud Station can be encrypted on DSM — no one will be able to access its content without your private key.
