All-in-One, high-performance NAS server suitable for small offices and workgroups
Milton Keynes, United Kingdom — 10th December 2015—Synology® Inc. today launched DiskStation DS216, a feature-rich 2-bay NAS server conceived to be a perfect match for workgroups and office environment, and specially designed for sharing and protecting data.
“DS216 will quickly become your best work partner, providing multiple handy office applications, assisting on improving productivity at work.” said Jason Fan, product manager at Synology Inc.
DS216 is built to deliver optimal multi-tasking experience at best price/performance ratio. Powered by a dual-core 1.3 GHz CPU and 512 MB DDR3 memory, DS216 outperforms its predecessor and delivers an exceeding read and write speed at over 111 MB/s under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows® environment.
With the built-in Floating-Point Unit (FPU) which further enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, the DS216 is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail processing, and enhancing photo viewing at different resolutions. With an encryption engine, it also offloads the encryption calculation task away from the main CPU, helping to improve file transfer speeds. DS216 is equipped with a USB 3.0 port and a USB copy button on the front panel for easy data transfer.
Designed with the mindset of non-stopping up-time service, DS216 is equipped with hot-swappable and tool-less drive trays for easy installation, simplifying drive replacement and maintenance.
DS216 runs on DiskStation Manager (DSM), the most advanced and intuitive operating system for NAS devices. Featuring a wide range of applications from backup to network management, DS216 provides all essential business services and increased productivity at work. Synology was voted by PC Pro readers as "The Best NAS Device of 2015". According to their survey, more than a quarter of all NAS drives bought by PC Pro readers are made by Synology and 97% of them would buy Synology again.
