The DS412+ may seem expensive, but if you're looking for a robust, fast network-storage device for a home office or small business, it could be well worth its price. Its four drive bays can support up to 16TB of storage, adding drives is easy, and if you need even more storage, eSATA and USB 3.0 ports are available for external drives. Synology 's software lets you easily configure the DS412+ as a media server, a cloud-based data server, for RAID backups, or just about anything else that requires a massive amount of network and internet-accessible storage.
