Taiwanese company Synology has just announced its new RackStation RS2212+ and RS2212RP+ NAS Servers on its official website. These are 10-bay rackable enclosures complete with multiple failover systems.
The platform is powered by a Dual Core 2.13 GHz CPU that’s very likely to be an Intel Atom family member. The RS2212+ has 1 GB of DDR3 RAM
that can be expanded to 3 GB.
On the storage side, it can handle ten 3.5” or 2.5” drives for a maximum total capacity of 30 terabytes. All the HDD bays
have hot swap capability and the external connectors include four USB 2.0 ports and one expansion port.
The network connectivity is serviced by two gigabit ports complete with Link Aggregation and Wake On LAN/WAN.
Cooling consists of four 80 mm fans with failover support that can reach a noise level of 39.3 dB(A) when loaded with 1TB ST31000520AS hard drives from Seagate and measured one meter away from the RackStation RS2212+.
The power consumption can reach 88W when loaded with 10 Western Digital 3TB WD30EZRS hard drives. In HDD Hibernation mode, the power consumption can drop to 36W.
The RackStation RS2212+ comes equipped with a standard PSU bay but the RS2212RP+ can be equipped with redundant power supplies to guarantee system reliability during a power outage.
The stations can reach a very high performance with read and write speeds at 200.73 MB/s and 194.32 MB/s respectively, using a RAID 5 configuration with Link Aggregation enabled.
Both units can be expanded using Synology RX1211 or the RX1211RP to hold up to 22 drives.
Pricing has not been announced yet.
