expansion unit RX418 provides easy capacity expansion by adding 4 3.5″/2.5″ SATA
drives to the system. Synology RX418 can also be used as a dedicated local backup
destination of Synology 1U RackStation for comprehensive data protection.

Reliable Plug-and-play Design

Simply connect Synology RX418 to corresponding Synology RackStation and it is ready
to use. Drives in the connected Synology RX418 operate as though they were internal
to the connected Synology NAS and can be managed directly by Synology DiskStation
Manager (DSM), with no additional software installation required.

Green and Easy to Manage

Award-winning Synology DSM provides an intuitive user interface for easy system
management. Drive hibernation can be configured in DSM to take effect automatically
when the system has been inactive for a period of time. This not only saves energy but
also extends the lifespan of the installed drives.
