Overview of the Synology DS416

This Network Attached Storage (NAS) device by Synology enables the secure management, storage and sharing of video data files. It supports up to 32TB of storage across 4 drive bays with the option to be supplied with Western Digital Purple hard drives that require fitting. Ideal for use in small organisations, the device also includes a range of helpful software applications and hot-swappable disk support.

The DS416 features a high-performance dual-core processor and hardware encryption engine, supporting the fast transfer of files, even when encrypted. The device can deliver over 221.05MB/s reading and 139.51MB/s writing (depending on the network environment) using Link aggregation and RAID 5 configurations. Two integrated Ethernet ports feature LAN failover support to ensure continuous network uptime and three built-in USB 3.0 interfaces enable the quick transfer of files onto external storage devices. Additionally, the tool-less hard drive tray and hot swappable design facilitates quick hard drive disk replacement without downtime, ensuring data is saved and available at all times.

Support for Windows ADS integration allows the device to be easily introduced into any existing network setup without need to recreate user accounts. Additionally, comprehensive network protocol support allows seamless and flexible file sharing across Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.

Browser-based software packages, such as DiskStation Manager and File Station are included, allowing disks and data files to be managed easily. Additionally, the DS file application allows remote access to data from an iOS or Android mobile device.
