RackStation RS2414+/​RS2414RP+

High-performance & scalable NAS server

Offering a high-performance, scalable, and full-featured network attached storage solution, RS2414+ and RS2414RP+ (equipped with redundant power supplies) meet the needs of businesses that requires an efficient way to centralize data protection, simplify data management, and rapidly scale storage capacity.

RS2414+

Dual core CPU with floating-point unit enhances productivity

RS2414+/RS2414RP+ is equipped with a built-in floating-point unit which enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, enabling higher working efficiency. RS2414+/RS2414RP+ delivers an average 330.06 MB/sec reading speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment, and 193.64 MB/sec writing. With 2GB RAM, RS2414+/RS2414RP+ exhibits a significant boost in multi-tasking performance.

Robust scalability up to 144TB

When the storage capacity of RS2414+/RS2414RP+ is nearing its limits, RS2414+/RS2414RP+ can easily be expanded up to 24 drives with a total of 144TB by RX1214/RX1214RP. It securely connects to the Synology RX1214/RX1214RP with specially-designed connection cable to ensure maximum throughput.

Reliable redundancy mechanisms

Boasting four built-in LAN ports with failover combined with hot-swappable drives, RS2414+/RS2414RP+ ensures continual service uptime during drive replacement or unexpected LAN failure. The passive cooling technology eliminates dependency upon a dedicated processor cooling fan. Should a fan fail, the built-in redundancy mechanisms will spin up functional fan(s) to improve ventilation. In addition, RS2414RP+ supports redundant power supplies which can ensure service uptime.

Easy installation with screw-less Rail Kit

RS2414+/RS2414RP+ accommodates the optional rail kit Synology RKS1314, helping you install RS2414+/RS2414RP+ on a rack effortlessly. Coming with sliding rails and screw-less design, RKS1314 lets you slide RS2414+/RS2414RP+ in and out for easy maintenance, cleaning and replacement.

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.

Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments

RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments. Windows ODX support speeds up data manipulation as the data transfer is offloaded. iSCSI also lets SMB users consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks. Learn more

Fit into business environments easily

With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ 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 RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency. Learn more

Optimize storage management

With Synology's Storage Manager, RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ allows for flexible storage deployment and utilization. You can optimize RAID configuration with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) while providing redundant data protection. Other features such as multiple volumes on single RAID and Global Hot Spare also greatly enhance management efficiency and fit deployment of any kind. Learn more

Synology CMS (Central Management System)

For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all of them from a single point of entry. Through a simple interface, you can obtain a clear overview on resource consumption and logs, helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS can do much more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without extra configuration. Learn more

All-in-one server

With just one RS2414+/​RS2414RP+, it's possible to handle a vast amount of tasks. RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ helps your company gain a competitive edge by acting as your multi-function server. Directory Server provides LDAP service, while DNS and DHCP packages allow you to host a domain name server and automate network IP assignment at no extra cost. With Synology's Proxy Server, you can regulate content access and monitor who can access which website while saving bandwidth. You can host up to 30 websites with Web Station, safeguard the office environments with Surveillance Station, send and receive mails using your own email domain with Mail Station, share printing capability with Printer Server, make RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ act as a VPN server to access company’s resources remotely, and more. Learn more

Ensuring business continuity

Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ supports Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former always mirrored to the latter. The Heartbeat mechanism detects regular "heartbeats" between the two servers. If the main server encounters unexpected downtime, the passive server immediately takes over. With multiple LAN ports, RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure. Learn more

Powerful backup solutions to enhance efficiency

Backup & Replication feature allows you to back up data from one RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ to another DiskStation, or rsync-compatible servers. It also provides the flexibility to restore the server to any particular point in time, and back up modified blocks to optimize storage and processing time. In addition, RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ offers you the capability to back up iSCSI LUNs with no extra charge. Businesses can enjoy efficient backup performance with "Point-in-time copy" technology for data consistence and incremental backup to speed up processing time. Learn more

Increase business productivity with cloud solutions

With comprehensive cloud solutions, RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ lets you create your own private cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which keeps up to 32 historical versions, allowing you to restore a file back to previous version or recover deleted files. With the mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprises, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can handpick individual folders that they want to sync to different devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size. Folders synced by Cloud Station can be encrypted on DSM — no one will be able to access its content without your private key. Learn more

Secure your data

RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ offers advanced security measures to protect you from potential security holes. Security Advisor analyzes system settings, password strength, network preferences and removes any possible malware. AppArmor blocks malicious programs from accessing unauthorized system resources. You can also customize the trust level in Package Center to avoid installing packages from untrusted sources, safeguarding your NAS from unknown or tampered files. In addition, RS2414+/​RS2414RP+ provides other security add-ons, such as AES encryption, 2-Step verification, IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention.
