Experience High Performance Data Throughput
With the Link Aggregation enabled, Synology DS412+ delivers an average 182.66 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows environment, and 205.68 MB/sec reading1. Coming with USB 3.0 support which offers transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbps, namely 10 times faster than USB 2.0, DS412+ takes less time for data transfer for external hard drives and consumes less power. Synology DS412+ brings you the high performance that your data-intensive applications demand for a storage system.
Dependable and Reliable
Businesses need a strong foundation to face mission-critical tasks. Synology DS412+ deliver high data availability to ensure access when it’s needed. The 2 LAN with failover support and hot-swappable drives will ensure continual service uptime should the drives need replacement or the unexpected LAN failure.
CPU is the heart of any system, and DS412+ incorporates a passive cooling structure to avoid the dependency of a dedicated processor cooling fan, and mitigate any critical point of failure. When system detects fan fails, the built-in redundancy mechanism will spin up the functional fan to properly ventilate the system, and support continuous operations until the replacement fan arrives. Therefore, potential system damages are minimized and system availability is maximized.
Flexible Storage Management
The Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) automatically builds an optimal RAID volume with data protection based on the hard drives installed, eliminating the need to have hard drives of identical size, while still offering a manual setup option for advanced users.
Multiple Volumes on RAID allows you to create more than one volume on a RAID structure, providing a flexible and efficient way to manage your storage across all available hard drives. When the need arises to expand the volumes, simply allocate more storage space on the UI, and DSM does the rest for you without any service disruption.
Rich Business Applications
Synology DS412+ runs on the award-winning operating system, Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), which offers comprehensive applications and features designed specifically for office and business workgroups.
Web Station with PHP/MySQL® support allows a single Synology DS412+ to host up to 30 websites and numerous
3rd party web applications, such as Content Management, Customer Relationship Management & e-Commerce system. The built-in mail server turns Synology DS412+ into a dedicated mail service provider, while the add-on package, Mail Station 2, provides a webmail interface for users to access emails stored on Synology DS412+.
Synology Surveillance Station offers a centralized interface to manage IP cameras deployed in your office or home, allowing users traveling miles away to safeguard the environment by watching live views, recording events, and taking snapshots with a computer or mobile device.
A wealth of add-on packages allows the Synology DS412+ to replace several pieces of network hardware. VPN Server offers an easy VPN solution that turns your Synology DS412+ into a VPN server, providing a secure way of connecting to a private LAN at a remote location. Directory Server allows Synology DS412+ to host LDAP service with centralized access control, authentication, and account management, further enhancing your office management efficiency.
Fit to Business Environment
Windows ADS integration allows the Synology DS412+ to quickly and easily fit in an existing business network environment with no need to recreate users’ accounts on the Synology DS412+. The User Home feature minimizes the administrator’s effort in creating a private shared folder for a large amount of users.
Windows ACL support on DS412+ provides much finer-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing IT staffs to set up privileges to files and folders on DS412+ through their familiar Windows user interface. The privileges set on Windows ACL will be applied to all access entries, including AFP, FTP, File Station, NFS and WebDAV. The secure privilege offers IT staff peace of mind, no worries about any loopholes.
iSCSI and Virtualization Ready
With the iSCSI support in DiskStation Manager (DSM), the Synology DS412+ provides a seamless storage solution for virtualization servers, such as VMware, Hyper-V, and Citrix. It is the ideal alternative to SAN solution for businesses. Affordable and cost-effective, iSCSI allows SMB users to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.
Energy Efficient Design
With 44 watts power consumption in operation, Synology DS412+ is designed with energy efficiency in mind. Not only does it provides two 92x92 mm fans and the smart airflow to keep the system running cool 24/7, its noise dampening design makes it really quiet compared to PC counterparts. The support of Wake on LAN/WAN, multiple scheduled power on/off and hard drive hibernation can further reduce power consumption and operation cost.
All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen to continually work to reduce the environmental impact of every product produced.
Synology DiskStation DS412+ is specifically designed for small and medium-sized businesses who need a high-performance, easy to manage, and full-featured network attached storage solution to centralize data backups, protect critical assets and share files across different platforms. Synology protects your investment in the DS412+ with a 2-year limited warranty.

Bought this NAS as an upgrade of my Qnap TS-419P and as soon as I initialized it, there is a big speed speed difference because of the processor. Paired with 4 X ST4000VN000 in raid 5, I am getting 110-120 mo/s in read and 100-105 mo/s in write without jumbo frames enabled. Everything is easy to install. Web interface is really good and looks very good. Initializing 4 X 4TB hard drives was long but this is predictable and you can still use/configure the NAS during process. Really happy with this first experience with Synology
I'm extremely pleased with this Synology box. It was simple to setup a RAID10 solution, and shares. In addition, there are many useful packages, especially Plex, if you plan on using it to store your media.
I have been running VM's off of a "fake raid" Intel RST array attached to my mobo for a while. Performance was decent (not great) but I was finding that the virtual machines I needed to run for business were suffering losses of availability because I would have issues now again.
Went from a crappy tower running Vista and garbage Seagate drives (blergh!!!) to this with 4 x 2TB WD Red's in RAID 10 config. One of the best upgrades we've made to our office. We use this quite heavily with a team of designers smashing up large Photoshop & Illustrator files all day long and it hasn't even blinked.
I would highly recommend this system as its very fast easy to use and the DSM operating system that synology uses is top notch. While it would have been nice to perhaps have a vga or dvi port to allow a monitor to be used its not really that bad not having one as its so easy to setup on a network i doubt you could even write a synology for dummies. The Synology Hybrid Raid is an excellent system allowing you to run different sized hard drives or expand your raid as you need more but i would recommend getting the drives you need right away as i tried to add a 4th 3tb drive just to see how long it would take to add and it took me around 3 days to add it to the raid as compared to only a few minutes when intially building the raid.
