A compact design for space efficiency

The RS1221+ and its RX418 expansion units are designed to help you save space in compact deployments. At only 30 centimeters, half the length of a typical 2U unit, it fits perfectly snug onto 2-post or shallow rackmount enclosures. The RS1221RP+ with dual power supplies comes in at 38 cm, also fitting most shallow depth enclosures.2

  • Fits into shallow rackmount enclosures
  • Easy-to-install on 2-post racks

Notes:

  1. Performance testing conducted by Synology with 10GbE NIC installed. Actual results may vary depending on system configuration, testing methods, and other environmental variables. Check the performance page for additional details.
  2. Compared to typical 2U rackmount chassis depth of 24" (61cm) or more. Actual fit will may depend on cabinet design, including usable space, cable routing, weight tolerance, and more. Synology is unable to provide guidance on compatibility with specific rackmount equipment.
  3. Network adapter cards, expansion units, other PCIe add-in-cards, and storage drives are sold separately. Refer to the compatibility list for compatible devices. Learn more
  4. NVMe SSD cache can be enabled via a M2D20 or E10M20-T1 PCIe expansion card and 2x Synology SNV3400/3500 M.2 NVMe SSDs. Read/write SATA SSD cache can be enabled via 2x Synology SAT5200 2.5" SATA SSDs.
