Summary: What can I say...It is perfect for my house...Running Raid 6 8tb (4x4tb WD Red). Has lots of application and 3rd party support. Most of the stuff that it offers I don't even use (Cloud) due to security concerns. But, it is just perfect for me...
Summary: I'm used to installing more involved redundant fiber channel SANs and this device was a breath of fresh air. We needed a simple, inexpensive NAS for some back-up storage and the Synology Rackstation.
Summary: Bought this for a college class that I teach. Students use it for clustering VMware and for storage for backups. Connects to ESXi 5+ just fine using iSCSI, and the ability to trunk the two ethernet ports makes for acceptable speed in a learning environment.
Summary: I originally thought I'd build a NAS box using one of the open source NAS distributions and after setting up some tests I found them to be quite tricky to administer (and I'm a very qualified user).
Great NAS with surprisingly useful provided/available plugins for media sharing/distribution.

Summary: Amazing product, way better than expected. The rackmount ears have removable handles in case you want to use those fancy slide out rails the kids are so fond of these days. I took em off and permanently affixed mine to the rack cabinet like god intended.
Summary: There is plenty of information out there regarding the Synology OS and features, so I'm just going to list my use of this RS812+ and the other Synology units currently operating in my business IT environment.
Summary: I have a Mac Pro and a Windows Server, and got this NAS Server for storage and backup up all my systems. Setup was a complete breeze. I wish I knew this existed years ago. Great peace of mind, excellent software interface, I expect my Synology to server me well for years to come.
Summary: Background: After losing data to a physical HD failure I started researching NAS solutions for central storage to make an effective backup plan even possible. I have data scattered across installed drives on about 6 computers.
