Synology RS217 Rackstation

 

Overview

Delivering outstanding results for small and growing businesses

Designed for growing businesses, RS217 is a compact NAS providing stunning performance and a significant improvement in encrypted data processing. RS217 comes with comprehensive business applications, enhancing collaboration and productivity.

Improved performance

Powered by a 1.33 GHz dual-core processor, RS217 delivers impressive performance with encrypted reading and writing speeds of 113 MB/s and 67 MB/s with link aggregation enabled, reaching a 214% improvement in overall encrypted data processing when compared with its predecessor. RS217 also delivers outstanding non-encrypted performance exceeding 210 MB/s in reading and 127 MB/s in writing.

Less than 12 inches in depth

RS217 fits perfectly into two-post racks and wall mount racks without additional rail kits. It is also resilient enough to withstand operating temperature of up to 50°C/122°F, offering high reliability under challenging conditions. The compact design offers an affordable solution for both industrial standard environments and smaller server rooms with limited space.

Dual LAN ensures continual network service

RS217 comes with dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports with failover support to ensure continual network service in case of LAN failure. The hot-swappable design facilitates easy and risk-free hard drive replacement. The hard drive tray lock further secures your hard drives from unauthorized or accidental withdrawal.

Convenient connectivity

RS217 enables faster and more efficient external data transfers. To ensure scalability, RS217 provides an eSATA and two USB 3.0 ports in the back, along with one USB 2.0 port on the front panel for quick access.

Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager

Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, browser-based operating system running on every DiskStation and RackStation, which makes managing your Synology NAS a breeze. Featuring an intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data smarter and simpler. Synology's Package Center lets you download and install useful add-on packages designed specifically for individual or business needs, meaning you can enjoy more entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.

Modern collaboration tools

RS217 comes with a comprehensive set of office applications, allowing you to maximize work productivity and improve team dynamics. Whether you are keeping track of household expenses or updating your project status, with SpreadSheet you can work together with other people on the same document in real-time as if you were sitting next to each other – even when you are miles apart. In addition, Note Station lets you and your team keep detailed notes and accomplish more tasks with features such as charts, presentation view, mail clipper, and much more.

The most compatible sharing

Enjoy seamless files sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® platforms as RS217 offers comprehensive network protocol support including FTP, SMB2, AFP, NFS and WebDAV. With Windows AD and LDAP integration, RS217 can fit effortlessly into any existing network environment - there is no need for IT administrators to maintain two sets of credentials. You also won't worry about missing files with the Recycle Bin feature which is supported on AFP, CIFS, File Station, and WebDAV. All files deleted in a shared folder will be automatically moved into the Recycle Bin.

Fit into business environments easily

With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, RS217 enables seamless account integration. The User Home feature can automatically create a "home" folder for every user account to minimize the administrator's effort in repeatedly creating "home" folders for all accounts. Windows ACL support on RS217 allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS217 through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS217 can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.

Your files anywhere with cloud service

RS217 brings you comprehensive cloud service. Cloud Station lets you sync files among DiskStations and multiple devices, including Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, as well as Windows mobile devices, whereas 2-way sync allows file synchronization among different DiskStations. With Cloud Sync, you can even sync your DiskStation with Amazon Cloud Drive, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, Baidu Cloud, and many more — establish your hybrid cloud to enjoy more storage flexibility and prevent data loss.

Backup data in multiple ways

Synology RS217 can serve as a centralized backup target. Whether you are a Windows or Mac user, you can back up everything on your computer directly to Synology NAS using Cloud Station Backup. Whenever you modify a file, the changes are backed up to RS217 automatically. Mac users also enjoy native Apple® Time Machine support. You can also back up data from your RS217 to another DiskStation, rsync servers, external drives, or even Amazon® S3, Glacier cloud service, Microsoft Azure, SFR, and hicloud. Synology Hyper Backup allows you to schedule backup tasks and restore the server to any particular point in time, while minimizing storage consumption and processing time by saving only the specific data block that has been changed between versions.

Connect your data quickly and easily

Synology aims to provide you the most convenient way to enjoy all services on RS217. With Synology QuickConnect, you don't have to deal with difficult DDNS setup. QuickConnect frees you from complicated router configuration and port-forwarding, so your entertainment and work files can be accessed on any computer, laptop, or mobile devices instantly without extra charge.

Get mobility with our apps

Synology develops versatile mobile apps — DS note, DS audio, DS video, DS photo, DS cloud, DS file, DS get and DS cam — allowing you to access and manage the contents of your RS217 with smartphones and tablets. QuickConnect brings an easier network experience as it eliminates complicated router configuration or port forwarding. With Synology mobile apps, your multimedia collection and work files are always on the go.
