High-speed data transfer and hardware encryption engine
Equipped with a quad-core processor and AES-NI hardware encryption engine, DS716+ delivers blazingly fast file transfer speeds - even when handling encrypted data. With Link Aggregation enabled, DS716+ delivers average reading and writing speeds of 223 MB/s and 137 MB/s respectively, while encrypted file transfers retain an astoundingly similar level of performance, exceeding 218 MB/s reading and 141 MB/s writing. That means you can safeguard data without sacrificing performance.
Dual LAN ports for failover and Link Aggregation support
Equipped with two Ethernet ports featuring failover and Link Aggregation support, DS716+ ensures continual network uptime even if LAN connection malfunction occurs on one port, reducing the chance of service disruption and costly downtime. Link Aggregation improves connection speeds beyond the limits of a single network cable or port.
Easy installation, hassle-free maintenance
Easy installation and hot-swappable hard drive support ensures easy maintenance and continuous service uptime should a hard drive need replacement. In addition, DS716+ incorporates a passive cooling design to reduce dependency on the dedicated processor cooling fan, thus mitigating any critical point of failure.
USB 3.0 and eSATA ensure speedy transfers to external storage
DS716+ boasts USB 3.0 and eSATA ports to connect to various kinds of external storage devices, while ensuring fast and efficient file transfer speeds. Support for USB 3.0 offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0), meaning it takes less time to transfer data to external hard drives while consuming less power.
4K Ultra HD video transcoding
Powered by a hardware-accelerated transcoding engine, DS716+ 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.
