    Marketing Information

    Dual-core CPU with floating-point unit enhances productivity

    DS216 delivers outstanding read/write performance with an average over 111 MB/s reading and writing speeds under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment. The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail creation when uploading large amounts of photos or videos.

    Hardware encryption engine enhances file transfer speeds

    DS216 is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads encryption calculation tasks away from the main CPU. Thus, the CPU can be free for other important tasks. DS216, compared with its predecessor DS214, has a 50% increase in encryption reading speed and an over 110% increase in encryption writing speed.
    Easy installation, hassle-free maintenance

    Hot-swappable drive trays support and easy installation ensure easy maintenance and continuous service uptime should a hard drive need replacement. In addition, DS216 introduces a USB copy button for easy data transmission.

    USB 3.0 ensures speedy transfers to external storage

    DS216 boasts USB 3.0 to connect to various kinds of external storage devices, while ensuring fast and efficient file transfer speeds. USB 3.0 support offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0), meaning less time needed to transfer data to external hard drives while consuming less power.

    Thoughtful four-level brightness control for front LEDs

    Equipped with adjustable LED indicators, DS216's front LEDs can provide comfortable brightness by controlling and scheduling its four-stage brightness, letting you flexibly decide the intensity of the front LEDs according to environment needs.

    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.

    All-in-one server

    With just one DS216, it's possible to handle a vast amount of tasks. DS216 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 DS216 act as a VPN server to access company's resources remotely, and more.
