With VMware vSphere™ 6.5 and VAAI integration certification, RS2418RP+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power for unparalleled performance and efficiency in VMware environments. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) speeds up data transfer and migration rates, while OpenStack Cinder support turns your Synology NAS into a block-based storage component.

Btrfs: Next Generation Storage Efficiency

RS2418RP+ introduces the Btrfs file system, bringing the most advanced storage technologies to meet the management needs of modern businesses:

  • Built-in data integrity check detects data and file system corruption with data and meta-data checksums and improves the overall stability.
  • Flexible Shared Folder/User Quota System provides comprehensive quota control over all user accounts and shared folders.
  • Advanced snapshot technology with customizable backup schedule allows up to 1,024 copies of shared folder backups in a minimum 5-minute interval without occupying huge storage capacity and system resources.
  • File or folder level data restoration brings huge conveniences and saves time for users who wish to restore only a specific file or folder.
  • File self-healing: Btrfs file system can auto-detect corrupted files with mirrored metadata, and recover broken data using the supported RAID volumes, which include RAID1, 5, 6, and 10.
