Synology DiskStation DS2419+ 12-Bay NAS
The DS2419+ is equipped with a 2.1 GHz Intel Atom C3538 Quad-Core processor and 4GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 memory that can be expanded up to 32GB. Under a 10GbE network environment, the DS2419+ delivers sequential reads of up to 1716 MB/s and sequential writes of up to 671 MB/s. If your system needs a boost, there is a PCIe 3.0 slot that can accept an optional 10GbE network interface card or an M.2 adapter card for setting up M.2 NVMe/SATA SSDs as a cache to improve random read/write IOPS. This NAS is equipped with 12 drive bays that are capable of natively supporting 3.5″ SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5″ SATA hard drives and SSDs for data storage. The data stored on this NAS can include videos, music, photos, and documents with up to 2048 user accounts and 1000 maximum concurrent connections.
The DS2419+ runs on the Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system that helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Also featured are two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one 9-pin serial port, and one expansion port that allow it to be connected to your Windows, Mac, or Linux system, plus one DX1215 expansion unit. Network connectivity is achieved via the four Gigabit Ethernet ports that support Link Aggregation and Failover, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network. For those who require RAID support, the DS2419+ supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, as well Synology Hybrid RAID and Basic RAID, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available, allowing each drive bay to be individually utilized.
The DS2419+ is engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer two 120 x 120 x 25mm fans to help keep the system running cool always, but its noise-dampening design also makes for quiet operations. The server supports numerous scheduled power on/off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses. The Synology DiskStation DS2419+ 12-Bay NAS Enclosure operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, an AC power cord, and two RJ45 LAN cables. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.
Synology iSCSI storage fully supports most virtualization solutions to enhance work efficiency with a simple management interface. VMware vSphere 6.5 and VAAI integration helps to offload storage operations and optimizes computation efficiency. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) speeds up data transfer and migration rates, while OpenStack Cinder support transforms your Synology NAS into a block-based storage component.
Synology’s Virtual Machine Manager adds many capabilities to your NAS. Set up and run various virtual machines including Windows, Linux, and Virtual DSM, so that you can test new software versions in a sandbox environment, isolate your customers’ machines, and increase the flexibility of your DS2419+ with reduced hardware deployment and maintenance costs.
The DS2419+ integrates various backup applications to safeguard your important data on almost any device with an intuitive user interface and durable storage technologies.
Cloud Station Backup safeguards your PC, Mac, and other desktop devices. The DS2419+ is also compatible with Time Machine, allowing you to backup your Mac to Synology NAS.
Hyper Backup comprehensively backs up your data to a local shared folder, an external device, another Synology NAS, an rsync server, or a public cloud service to help ensure data safety.
Active Backup for Business centralizes backup tasks for VMware virtual machines, Windows, servers, and rsync/SMB file servers. Fast and reliable recovery options ensure that running services, VMs, and files can be recovered almost instantly.
Active Backup for Office 365/G Suite is an on-premise backup solution for public clouds with a centralized dashboard, optimizing storage efficiency through the single instancing and block-level deduplication technology.
Btrfs: Next Generation Storage Efficiency
The DS2419+ introduces the Btrfs file system, bringing advanced storage technologies to meet the management needs of modern businesses:
Advanced Snapshot Technology
A customizable backup schedule allows shared folders to be backed up in a minimum 5-minute interval, without consuming heavy system resources.
File and Folder Level Data Restoration
Brings conveniences and saves time for users who wish to restore only a specific file or folder.
Flexible Shared Folder and User Quota System
These provide comprehensive quota control on all user accounts and shared folders.
The Btrfs file system is able to auto-detect corrupted files with mirrored metadata and recover broken data using the supported RAID volumes, which include RAID 1, 5, 6, and 10.
Built for IT administrators, this offers an advanced LUN and provides fast snapshot creation, recovery, and cloning.
Reliability, Availability, and Disaster Recovery
System reliability is critical for businesses everywhere. The DS2419+ responds to these concerns with wide-ranging availability and redundancy features:
Synology High Availability
Helps ensure a smooth transitioning between clustered servers in the event of unexpected disasters and ensures that your services remain online.
Provides schedulable, near-instantaneous data protection, ensuring business documents in shared folders, virtual machines in iSCSI LUNs or dockerized application data remain safe and available in the event of a disaster.
Redundant Systems Fans & Network Ports
These are built with failover support to help ensure continual service uptime.
