Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) technology
Storage management is easy with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) technology. SHR is an automated RAID management system allowing you to easily create and expand storage volumes and migrate RAID types without requiring details on RAID. SHR provides 1 to 2-disk redundancy to safeguard your data during drive failures.
SHR maximizes the data capacity of your RAID when different sizes of HDDs are used.
For novice users who have no technical background and still want to protect their data using RAID technology, a convenient installation wizard will guide you through all the steps during your first installation.
You can add new disks on the fly in Storage Manager with a simple click.
While creating a volume, you can plan ahead and leave empty and unallocated space for future usage.
