Synology 96TB RS2418+ RackStation 12-Bay Scalable NAS - 2U Rackmount

High-capacityand scalable NASdesigned for businesses with flexible storage and M.2 SSD expandability

Scalable Storage Server On-Demand

RS2418+/RS2418RP+is an ideal storage solution for small- and medium-sized businesses with great flexibility in terms of expandable storage capacity, upgradable memory, and optional high-speed NICor M.2 SSD cache support.It serves perfectly as a centralized file server, backup target for distributed businesses, or backup target for employee workstations in a growing business.

Boost your storage performance with easy-to-install add-in cards

Equipped with a PCIe 3.0 slot, RS2418+ supports installing an M.2 SSD adapter card or 10GbE NIC for a high-IOPS system cache and ultra-fast data transmission.

Next-generation file system for better data protection

The Btrfs file system introduces advanced storage technologies and optimized snapshots to prevent data corruption and reduce maintenance overhead. While ensuring high-level data integrity, it also offers flexible, efficient data protection and recovery tools.

  • Flexible Shared Folder/User Quota System provides comprehensive quota control on all user accounts and shared folders
  • Snapshot Replication provides schedulable and storage capacity-saving data protection with 1,024 shared folder backups and 65,000 system-wide snapshots
  • File or folder level data restoration makes data recovery fast and flexible
  • Automatic file self-healing detects and recovers corrupted files without user intervention

Ultimate Backup Solution

RS2418+ integrates various backup applications to safeguard your important data on any device with an intuitive user interface and durable storage technologies.

Active Backup for Server

An agentless backup solution protects data from Windows and Linux serversthrough SMB and Rsync to minimize deployment and management costs.
