Product Description

Size Name: 8TB (4 x 2TB WD Red HDD)

Product Description

Synology® DiskStation DS412+ is specifically designed for small and medium-sized businesses who need a high-performance, easy to manage, and full-featured network attached storage solution to centralize data backups, protect critical assets and share files across different platforms. Synology protects your investment in the DS412+ with a 2-year limited warranty.

Contains the WD Red HDD’s with WD’s NASware technology for improved efficiency, reliability and compatibility

Experience High Performance Data Throughput

With the Link Aggregation enabled, Synology DS412+ delivers an average 179.15 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows environment, and 202.36 MB/sec reading. Coming with USB 3.0 support which offers transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbps, namely 10 times faster than USB 2.0, DS412+ takes less time for data transfer for external hard drives and consumes less power. Synology DS412+ brings you the high performance that your data-intensive applications demand for a storage system.

Dependable and Reliable

Businesses need a strong foundation to face mission-critical tasks. Synology DS412+ deliver high data availability to ensure access when it’s needed. The 2 LAN with failover support and hot-swappable drives will ensure continual service uptime should the drives need replacement or the unexpected LAN failure.

CPU is the heart of any system, and DS412+ incorporates a passive cooling structure to avoid the dependency of a dedicated processor cooling fan, and mitigate any critical point of failure. When system detects fan fails, the built-in redundancy mechanism will spin up the functional fan to properly ventilate the system, and support continuous operations until the replacement fan arrives. Therefore, potential system damages are minimized and system availability is maximized.

Flexible Storage Management

The Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) automatically builds an optimal RAID volume with data protection based on the hard drives installed, eliminating the need to have hard drives of identical size, while still offering a manual setup option for advanced users.

Multiple Volumes on RAID allows you to create more than one volume on a RAID structure, providing a flexible and efficient way to manage your storage across all available hard drives. When the need arises to expand the volumes, simply allocate more storage space on the UI, and DSM does the rest for you without any service disruption.

Rich Business Applications

Synology DS412+ runs on the award-winning operating system, Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), which offers comprehensive applications and features designed specifically for office and business workgroups.

Web Station with PHP/MySQL® support allows a single Synology DS412+ to host up to 30 websites and numerous 3rd party web applications, such as Content Management, Customer Relationship Management & e-Commerce system. The built-in mail server turns Synology DS412+ into a dedicated mail service provider, while the add-on package, Mail Station 2, provides a webmail interface for users to access emails stored on Synology DS412+.

Synology Surveillance Station offers a centralized interface to manage IP cameras deployed in your office or home, allowing users traveling miles away to safeguard the environment by watching live views, recording events, and taking snapshots with a computer or mobile device.

A wealth of add-on packages allows the Synology DS412+ to replace several pieces of network hardware. VPN Server offers an easy VPN solution that turns your Synology DS412+ into a VPN server, providing a secure way of connecting to a private LAN at a remote location. Directory Server allows Synology DS412+ to host LDAP service with centralized access control, authentication, and account management, further enhancing your office management efficiency.

Purchased the Synology DS412+ for work to replace our old Buffalo Terastation II, as it was reaching its max storage limits and we outgrew its features.

The main features we wanted from a NAS drive for our small office was; Bigger storage, faster performance, easy admin console, ability to connect remotely (FTP, WebDav, HTTP) and the ability to share files for guests to view/download. It has ticked all the boxes and I will explain in detail how we work with the DS412+ at our office.

The NAS is connected to a giganet router, and there are 6 people connecting to the router via Ethernet. Each of us has the NAS drive mounted over the WebDav (Mac OSX) so it behaves like a local folder. We have 2 graphic designers working directly from the NAS drive with files that go up to 1GB, and remaining 4 staff made up of web designer, developer and copy editor accessing the drive all day for photos, images, video etc. In addition we generate links for external guests can view or download files straight from the NAS drive, and we can set the link validity for a week, month or year.

Apart from the 6 main staff, we have 2 other people (marketing) setup only with READ only permission to access the drive so they can download files such as images, menu, brochure and logos. The Desk Station Manager web admin portal is very is to configure and you can add various groups / users with different access privileges.

This isn't a review as such, but like other users I am very impressed with the DiskStation. I haven't owned it for long enough to really get my teeth into it and the unit has a bewildering number of features for me to get my head round.

The real reason I am adding a review is to address a frustration I had researching the unit: it is impossible to find out what drives are supplied with the 2TB, 4TB and 8TB packages. In the case of the 8TB version you're blowing £500 on HD storage so it would be nice to know what you are spending it on.

In my case (for the 8TB package) the unit came with 4 x Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200rpm HD drives already installed in the DiskStation's caddies.

I say in my case as it might be that there is some suppliers discretion involved here. The price of HD storage is still quite high as a result of the problems following the floods in Thailand, though this may be creeping down again.

It may be that the identity of the HDs is kept deliberately vague to allow the supplier to select which ever brand gives them the best profit margin at any given time.

Even so I think it would be good if Amazon could tell you exactly what it is that you are buying, particularly for a product like this where the quality of the hard drives is important. I think there have been question marks about the reliability of some brands in the past so it is only right that customers are told what it is they are buying.

So, for this buyer anyway, I got Seagate Barracudas. YMMV

I bought this to replace a reliable, but aging Netgear ReadyNAS NV+. I was primarily looking for something faster and easy to expand, which the DS412+ is.

The models in this range (412+, 1512+ and higher) all have more powerful processors and more RAM than the cheaper NAS boxes which is where the performance comes from and also allow the NAS more flexibility in running additional applications such as media servers, if that's what you want to do.

First time setup is a little odd since before you can do anything you first have to upload the OS (DSM) to the NAS using the provided Windows software. You also need disks in the unit before you do this so I presume it allocates a small portion of the drive(s) for installing the OS into, not that 200MB is going to matter when you're putting 2TB drives into it.

Once that's done setup is easy and automatic. Allocate an IP and away it goes. The default is to create what Synology call a "Hybrid RAID" volume for easy expansion which the setup does automatically once it's uploaded the OS and formatted the drives.

In use the Synology is _really_ quiet; for all practical purposes it's silent even during drive access. The drive trays have rubber grommets to keep vibration noise from the drives down and the fans are of the large-and-slow-spinning type to keep airflow up without fan noise. There is also plenty of space between the drive bays to help airflow and keep the drives cool.

Performance wise I don't quite get the numbers claimed by the marketing, but it's not far off. On a gigabit LAN with 3 2TB drives in SHR configuration and large (5GB+) files I get a sustained 60-70MB/sec write.
