Synology® Inc. recently unveiled the new RackStation RS2416+/RS2416RP+, a 12-bay network-attached storage solution featuring schedulable snapshots and resilient data integrity, on-the-fly scalability up to 24 drives, as well as reliable performance suited for the modern workplace.
Offers metadata mirroring and checksums
With support for the next-generation Btrfs file system, RS2416+/RS2416RP+ offers metadata mirroring and checksums that guarantee a higher level of data availability and survivability.

With advanced data protection and integrity mechanisms, the new RS2416+/RS2416RP+ provides the ideal choice for storing a business’ crucial data,” said Michael Wang, Product Manager at Synology Inc.
