The Synology DS416 is aimed at small businesses or home users seeking a fast, high capacity central data storage with cloud functionality. Armed with a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of DDR3 memory and dual Gigabit LAN, the DiskStation claims speeds of 220MB/s read and 140MB/s write. 40TB of data can be stored securely within the DS416, with single or dual-disk redundancy possible.
With our ever-increasing dependence upon technology, and by association, data storage, having that data backed up is vital. Precious photos of loved ones or that project you’ve been developing for months could all be irretrievable without the correct procedures in place, which is exactly where something like the DS416 comes into play. The beauty of high-speed internet further adds to the usefulness of such a device, allowing you to access your files over a mobile network anywhere in the world.
The DS416 arrives with their award-winning DiskStation Manager (DSM) Operating System, renowned for its robustness and usability.
