Experience High Performance Data Throughput
With the Link Aggregation enabled, Synology RS812+ delivers an average 175.11 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows environment, and 202.31 MB/sec reading1. Synology RS812+ bring you the high performance that your data-intensive applications demand for a storage system, and offer the ability to scale the storage capacity.
High Reliability for Critical Business Applications
Businesses need a strong foundation to face mission-critical tasks. Synology RS812+ 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.
In the event of a hardware failure, the RS812+ is made for easy maintenance without removing from the rack. The motherboard inside is made for easy access and replacement. No additional system re-configuring is needed, and RS812+ can be brought back on the line with your existing data.
CPU is the heart of any system, and RS812+ 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(s) 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.
Fit to Business Environment
Windows ADS integration allows the Synology RS812+ to quickly and easily fit in an existing business network environment with no need to recreate users’ accounts on the Synology RS812+. The User Home feature minimizes the administrator’s effort in creating a private shared folder for a large amount of users.
Windows ACL support on RS812+ provides much finer-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing IT staffs to set up privileges to files and folders on RS812+ through their familiar Windows user interface. The privileges set on Windows ACL will be applied to all access entries, including AFP, FTP, File Station, NFS and WebDAV. The secure privilege offers IT staff peace of mind, no worries about any loopholes.
Robust & Affordable Scalability Up to 32TB
When the storage capacity of the Synology RS812+ is nearing its capacity limit, it can easily be expanded with the Synology RX410 expansion enclosure. The Synology RX410 securely connects to the Synology RS812+ via an eSATA cable with specially-designed locking connectors. The Synology RX410 expands the existing storage on the Synology RS812+ up to a maximum 32TB capacity.
Rich Business Applications
Synology RS812+ 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 RS812+ 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 RS812+ 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 RS812+.
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 RS812+ to replace several pieces of network hardware. VPN Server offers an easy VPN solution that turns your Synology RS812+ into a VPN server, providing a secure way of connecting to a private LAN at a remote location. Directory Server allows Synology RS812+ to host LDAP service with centralized access control, authentication, and account management, further enhancing your office management efficiency.
iSCSI and Virtualization Ready
With the iSCSI support in DiskStation Manager (DSM), the Synology RS812+ provides a seamless storage solution for virtualization servers, such as VMware, Hyper-V, and Citrix. It is the ideal alternative to SAN solution for businesses. Affordable and cost-effective, iSCSI allows SMB users to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.
Energy Efficient Design
Synology DiskStations are designed and developed with energy efficiency in mind. Compared with the average PC counterparts, the Synology RS812+ consume relatively low amount of power at 46.2 watts only in operation. The support of Wake on LAN/WAN and scheduled power on and off can further reduce power consumption and operation cost. HDD hibernation can be configured to take effect automatically when the system has been inactive for a specified period of time. This not only saves energy but also extends the lifespan of the hard disks.
All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen to continually work to reduce the environmental impact of every product produced.
