Quick Overview

Delivering outstanding results for small and growing businesses

Designed for growing businesses, RS217 is a compact NAS providing stunning performance and a significant improvement in encrypted data processing. RS217 comes with comprehensive business applications, enhancing collaboration and productivity.

Improved performance

Powered by a 1.33 GHz dual-core processor, RS217 delivers impressive performance with encrypted reading and writing speeds of 113 MB/s and 67 MB/s with link aggregation enabled, reaching a 214% improvement in overall encrypted data processing when compared with its predecessor. RS217 also delivers outstanding non-encrypted performance exceeding 210 MB/s in reading and 127 MB/s in writing.

Less than 12 inches in depth

RS217 fits perfectly into two-post racks and wall mount racks without additional rail kits. It is also resilient enough to withstand operating temperature of up to 50°C/122°F, offering high reliability under challenging conditions. The compact design offers an affordable solution for both industrial standard environments and smaller server rooms with limited space.

Dual LAN ensures continual network service

RS217 comes with dual Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports with failover support to ensure continual network service in case of LAN failure. The hot-swappable design facilitates easy and risk-free hard drive replacement. The hard drive tray lock further secures your hard drives from unauthorized or accidental withdrawal.

Convenient connectivity

RS217 enables faster and more efficient external data transfers. To ensure scalability, RS217 provides an eSATA and two USB 3.0 ports in the back, along with one USB 2.0 port on the front panel for quick access.
