Synology presents RackStation RS819 with four slots

Synology has unveiled the RackStation RS819. This is a compact and scalable four slot NAS rack model that supports snapshot technology. Business teams can easily manage, share and sync data with the NAS rack model. They can also make backups.

According to Synology product manager Michael Wang, achieving an effective data protection and backup plan is not always a priority within teams with a limited budget. If server problems occur, this can lead to “catastrophic losses”.

“Thanks to a new 64-bit quad-core processor, the RS819 is our first RackStation model in the Value series that supports snapshot technology and introduces simple data protection solutions,” says Wang. The RS819 provides a comprehensive Btrfs file system for 4,096 system snapshots and 256 snapshots per shared folder.


In addition, the NAS rack model features a compact, four-slot 1U rackmount enclosure. The whole thing is less than 30 centimetres deep. The model can be easily implemented in both a two-post rack and a wall-mounted model with these dimensions. This makes the RS819, according to Synology, ideal for businesses with limited space.

The RS819 comes with a 64 bit quad-code processor and 2GB DDR4 memory. It also offers an encrypted reading speed of more than 224 MB per second. Storage capacity can be expanded up to 112TB with a Synology RX418 expansion unit.

Like several other Synology products, the RS819 also uses DiskStation Manager. This is the operating system for Synology NAS devices, which includes a variety of applications to increase productivity.


This is the second time this year that Synology has introduced a NAS. In February, DiskStation DS109+ was released, aimed at SMBs and enthusiasts. The DS109+ disc drive combines five HDD messages with two m.2 slots for an SDD cache.

The hard disk bays are equipped with a lock to restrict unauthorized access to the drives. The two M.2 NVMe connections provide the NAS with compact SSDs for a super fast SSD cache, without sacrificing an HDD bay.
