Rack-mount design, terabytes capacity, RAID redundancy, ADS support, and hot swappable hard drives, make RS-406 the most competitive rack-mount NAS server.

Hot Swappable Hard Drives

RS-406 has most of the cool features of Disk Station and Cube Station. Its hard drives are hot swappable. The RISC-based design delivers more-than-adequate performance and better thermal handling; RS-406 is surely the first choice to satisfy the basic storage need of SMB and enterprise.

Work with Windows ADS

Rack Station itself already has account management, but what if you want your Windows-domain colleagues to share the function-rich server? The Windows domain support is compatible with Windows ADS and NT4 Domain. Windows domain users now can enjoy the cool features of Disk Station.

Transfer Data Securely

If you are worried about critical data being accessed via Internet, the Secure FTP and Secure Network Backup can take care of it. Secure FTP uses the matured SSL/TLS technology and Secure Network Backup uses the industry-proven SSH package to transfer data.

Protect Your Data with Redundancy

RS-406 supports large-capacity RAID 0 and reliable RAID 1 and RAID 5. It also supports Non-RAID volume for single drive.

Total Backup Solutions

Data backup is so important but people tend to ignore it, RS-406 makes data backup so complete and automatic that backup always be done without your attention. From Secure Network Backup, Local Backup, to PC Backup (Synology Data Replicator II), you can always find the backup alternatives that fit your needs.
