Synology Tuesday launched RackStation RS2414+ and RS2414RP+, the 2U 12-bay rackmount NAS servers designed for high performance and scalability to small and medium businesses.
“RS2414+ and RS2414RP+ are built to address SMB’s growing needs of performance, capacity and reliability”, said Chad Chiang, Product Manager of Synology Inc. “An array of advanced hardware designs and reliability features are thus applied to ensure those needs are perfectly answered,” added Chiang.
The RS2414+/RS2414RP+ is designed to answer to the growing demand of performance for a storage system. Running on a 2.13 GHz dual-core processor, the RS2414+/RS2414RP+ delivers high performance with read and write speeds at 339 MB/sec and 209 MB/sec respectively under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment with Link Aggregation enabled. In addition, the RS2414+/RS2414RP+ further boosts multitasking power with 2GB DDR3 RAM, twice the size of its predecessor. Memory of the NAS is also expandable to 4 GB to enhance efficiency.
Paired with expansion units RX1214/RX1214RP with a specially-designed connection cable that ensures maximum throughput, the RS2414+/RS2414RP+ can be expanded to 96 TB capacity.
Rhe RS2414+/RS2414RP+ has a number of measures in place to ensure uninterrupted availability, essential to enterprise clients. Both units are equipped with passive CPU cooling technology, system fan redundancy, hot-swappable drives, and 4 LAN ports with failover support, which eliminate single point of failure and ensure continuous system uptime. RS2414RP+ and RX1214RP even come with redundant power supplies to further guarantee system reliability.
The RS2414+/RS2414RP+ runs on the DiskStation Manager (DSM) 4.3 web-based operating system that provides a number of applications to improve workflow efficiency, with the latest version(4.2) being honored “Best Choice Award” and “Media’s Choice Award” at Computex 2013.
The Synology RackStation RS2414+/RS2414RP+ and RX1214/RX1214RP are now shipping globally.
