Equipped with the powerful Intel Pentium quad-core CPU and AES-NI hardware encryption engine, DS916+ provides excellent encrypted reading speed over 225 MB/s and writing over 209 MB/s1, enabling compelling performance and a more productive user experience.

2GB and 8GB memory options
DS916+ offers 2GB and 8GB memory options for users with different needs. While users of 2GB model can experience many of the powerful features of DSM for a fair price, the 8GB model is created especially for startups or small and medium size offices looking for robust efficiency-oriented solutions, such as more Docker DSM resources, and higher number of concurrent users on Cloud Station, CIFS/AFP/FTP, and File Station connections.
Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments DS916+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® & VAAI integration, DS916+ 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.
4K Ultra HD video transcoding
Powered by a hardware-accelerated transcoding engine, DS916+ allows you to transcode and stream H.264 4K / 1080p videos to high-definition TV, digital media players, mobile handsets, and computers in the required format, making it easy to watch videos without having to install a 3rd party player. 4K transcoding is available only through Synology’s Video Station, DS video, Media Server. 

Your files anywhere with cloud service
DS916+ brings you comprehensive cloud service. Cloud Station lets you sync files among DiskStations and multiple devices, including Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, as well as Windows mobile devices, whereas 2-way sync allows file synchronization among different DiskStations. With Cloud Sync, you can even sync your DiskStation with Amazon Cloud Drive, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, Baidu Cloud, and many more — establish your hybrid cloud to enjoy more storage flexibility and prevent data loss

The most compatible sharing
Enjoy seamless files sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®platforms as DS916+ offers comprehensive network protocol support including FTP, SMB2, AFP, NFS and WebDAV. With Windows AD and LDAP integration, DS916+ can fit effortlessly into any existing network environment - there is no need for IT administrators to maintain two sets of credentials. You also won't worry about missing files with the Recycle Bin feature which is supported on AFP, CIFS, File Station, and WebDAV. All files deleted in a shared folder will be automatically moved into the Recycle Bin

Fit into business environments easily
With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, DS916+ 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 DS916+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on DS916+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, DS916+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.

Home surveillance, accessible for all
With the Surveillance Station add-on package and two free IP camera and device licenses, DS916+ serves as your home surveillance hub. Simply connect multiple IP cameras or I/O modules to the home network, pair them with DS916+, and then easily view live surveillance feeds, record videos, or enjoy other advanced features like motion detection or push notifications. Support for thousands of IP cameras makes it easy to find compatible models and brands. Safeguard your home, without breaking the bank.

Backup data in multiple ways
Synology DS916+ can serve as a centralized backup target. Whether you are a Windows or Mac user, you can back up everything on your computer directly to Synology NAS using Cloud Station Backup. Whenever you modify a file, the changes are backed up to DS916+ automatically. Mac users also enjoy native Apple® Time Machine support. You can also back up data from your DS916+ to another DiskStation, rsync servers, external drives, or even Amazon® S3, Glacier cloud service, Microsoft Azure, SFR, and hicloud. Synology Hyper Backup allows you to schedule backup tasks and restore the server to any particular point in time, while minimizing storage consumption and processing time by saving only the specific data block that has been changed between versions.

Next-generation data protection and integrity
When dealing with large-scale data storage, businesses require a solution that offers reliable backup and prevents file corruption. With support for the next-generation Btrfs file system, DS916+ ensures information is stored with a high level of data integrity, while providing flexible and efficient data protection tools.

Synology 4-Bay DiskStation NAS DS916+ (8GB) reviews

Hi, Looking at the DS916 as my main nas, but would like a recommendation on which budget synology model you think would work well with this unit. Looking at having a remote offsite budget nas connected via vpn to the ds916 to be used for backups. Any idea"s?

Reply from SPAN.COM | 17/02/2017

Thank you for your enquiry Justin,


I see you contacted us once before, however your e-mail was provided as 'stopjunk2013@outlook.com' and it resulted in a bounced reply. No worries, Here is my original reply, verbatim.


If you are looking for a budget Synology NAS that has 4-Bays (to mirror the DS916+ as a backup) then the most budget 4-Bay from Synology would be the DS416J here - https://www.span.com/product/Synology-4-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS416J-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1-5-6~53265


However there are other options. If you need a much, MUCH more compact NAS that uses less power, is quieter and has an identical spec as the NAS above, then the DS416slim is a good choice, however you can only use 2." Hard drives - https://www.span.com/product/Synology-4-Bay-Slim-DiskStation-NAS-DS416slim-2-5-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1-5-6~53917


Lastly, if you want the backup NAS to have a little more power (for local use in the offsite office besides backing up the primary DS916+) then you should opt for the DS416 - https://www.span.com/product/Synology-4-Bay-DiskStation-NAS-DS416-SATA-HD-RAID-0-1-5-6~51093


Of the three, I would recommend the 3rd option, however that is if you want the 2nd NAS to 'earn it's keep' in the offsite office too! Thank you for visiting SPAN.COM and be sure to take advantage of out FREE build and tests service on any NAS bought with us so we can set up your RAID, install all firmware on NAS/HDD and have the unit setup for you straight out of the box upon delivery! 


Kind regards,

If you would like a backup with the same capacity, you'd probably need another 4-bay NAS.

So anything from the DS416J or DS416 upwards would be suitable.

Too bad two disks out of four were not properly inserted. I found out because the NAS would not start right and kept beeping. I could insert one disk in the slot but I couldn't insert the other one. I found out it hadn't been inserted right in its sledge.
So, it was fixed in a minute but I really feel this could have been avoided. Luckily, my panic was short lived and everything works OK now.

Having recently upgraded from a very loyal and reliable Syn 411j to this 916+ unit I have to say that the "j" must mean "joke" as this vastly superior NAS is just amazing! The speed is breath taking. Plex just breezes along and cups purr away, hardly ever going above 40%. If you want a "serious" NAS go the extra mile and get the 916+ otherwise the J is on you.

Only one day has passed since I ordered this unit. Unfortunately, and as I was expecting, the unit is not yet available for shipping. But the way SPAN.Com is dealing with this is absolutely amazing, actively exchanging emails with me and keeping me informed about everything. Best online shopping experience so far! Keep it like that SPAN.
