Synology inc. launched the Synology DiskStation DS216+ NAS, powerful two-bay NAS server for home users and small businesses. The DS216+ is desgined to protect and share data, it`s power efficient and powerful NAS that can also transcode videos on-the-fly. 

Like all DiskStations new DS216+ runs the award winning OS – DiskStation Manager (DSM). Featuring a range of apps from network management, backup to multimedia, all essential services are provided.
On the front it has LED controls that allows users to adjust LED brightness and schedule settings.

Although DS216+ is not the fastest DiskStation around, with both read and write speeds of 111Mb/s. It uses an Intel Celeron Processor N3050 and Intel AES New instructions encryption. Media enthusiasts will love om-the-fly H.264 4K to 1080p video transcoding function. They will be able to stream their HD media regardless of device limitations or bandwidth. 

Just like the DS716+ and RC18015xs+ the new DS216+ will be implementing Btrfs file system.
