Dual-core CPU with floating-point unit enhances productivity
DS216 delivers outstanding read/write performance with an average over 111 MB/s reading and writing speeds under RAID 1 configuration in a Windows environment. The built-in floating-point unit enhances the overall capability of the main CPU, and is particularly advantageous in speeding up thumbnail creation when uploading large amounts of photos or videos.

Hardware encryption engine enhances file transfer speeds
DS216 is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads encryption calculation tasks away from the main CPU. Thus, the CPU can be free for other important tasks. DS216, compared with its predecessor DS214, has a 50% increase in encryption reading speed and an over 110% increase in encryption writing speed.

Easy installation, hassle-free maintenance
Hot-swappable drive trays support and easy installation ensure easy maintenance and continuous service uptime should a hard drive need replacement. In addition, DS216 introduces a USB copy button for easy data transmission.

USB 3.0 ensures speedy transfers to external storage
DS216 boasts USB 3.0 to connect to various kinds of external storage devices, while ensuring fast and efficient file transfer speeds. USB 3.0 support offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0), meaning less time needed to transfer data to external hard drives while consuming less power.

Thoughtful four-level brightness control for front LEDs
Equipped with adjustable LED indicators, DS216's front LEDs can provide comfortable brightness by controlling and scheduling its four-stage brightness, letting you flexibly decide the intensity of the front LEDs according to environment needs.
