Classic 4-bay NAS, ideal companion for your own cloud
Inherited Synology’s most classic industrial design, Synology DS416j comes with the latest storage technology to meet the need of home and personal users. Being a powerful yet budget-friendly model of the Synology J series family, Synology DS416j features a dual-core CPU with hardware encryption engine, 512MB RAM, one Gigabit LAN port, one USB3.0 port and one USB2.0 port, standing out as one of the best values in 4-bay NAS devices available today. DS416j delivers up to an average 112.82 MB/s reading and 101.2 MB/s writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment, which is a 37.33% writing speed increase comparing with its predecessor DS414j.
The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail processing, making photo viewing a refreshingly new experience. Running on Synology’s award-winning DSM operating system, DS416j shares the rich reservoir of applications available in DSM Package Center.

Cross platform file sharing
Synology DS416j supports comprehensive network protocols, ensuring a seamless file sharing experience across Windows, Mac®, and Linux® platforms. Windows AD and LDAP integration allows Synology DS416j to fit quickly and effortlessly into any existing network environment without the necessity to recreate user accounts. Cloud Sync keeps your Dropbox, Google™ Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Baidu and Box storage in sync with your personal DiskStation at home. Cloud Station suit allows users to sync files among multiple devices, no matter it’s Windows PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android™ tablets/phones, effortlessly keeping everything up-to-date. While you enjoy the seamless file sharing, all the file sharing over the Internet is protected at a high security level through the HTTPS, firewall, and IP auto-block that supported by DS416j.

Easy backup solutions
To protect your valuable data, DS416j can become a centralized backup destination for consolidating fragmented and unstructured information across your network through a range of options. Advanced backup privilege management makes network backup tasks safer and more efficient. Backup & Restore is a complete backup solution to minimize the impact of disasters, keeping your valuable data safe and secure.

DLNA compliant media server
As a DLNA compliant DMS (Digital Media Server), DS416j comes with the capability to host digital multimedia contents for remote playback, bringing you a brand new experience for your home entertainments. Once configured in your network, DS416j is able to stream music, photos and videos to DLNA compliant devices, enabling users to enjoy their collection on larger screens or with quality speakers. Synology even makes it possible for users to browse and select DiskStation contents using DS audio to designate a DLNA player within the same local network for audio playback.

Anywhere/anytime availability
QuickConnect and EZ-Internet configure your DS416j for accessing over the Internet with minimal effort. Combined with Synology’s mobile apps for every popular feature, including DS photo, DS audio, and DS video for anywhere multimedia access, DS download, DS file, and DS cloud for seamless file download/access/synchronization, you can enjoy your NAS anywhere, any time.

Energy efficient with eco-friendly design
All Synology NAS is designed with energy efficiency in mind. The two 80 x 80 mm fans with the smart airflow functions keep the system running cool 24/7. Synology DS416j consumes relatively little power at 21.6 watts while accessing and 12.75 watts when hard drive hibernation is enabled. The noise dampening design makes DS416j quiet compared to PC counterparts. The support of Wake on LAN/WAN, multiple scheduled power on/off 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.
