RackStation RS3617xs

Synology RackStation RS3617xs provides reliable and superior performance networks that are storage-based solutions for large-scale businesses with comprehensive business applications. RS3617xs simplifies data management, optimizes virtualization environments, and quickly expands storage capacity with minimal time investment in settings and maintenance.

Synology RS3617xs is supported by a 5-year limited warranty from Synology. The outstanding performance of the RS3617xs provides outstanding performance at more than 3,263 MB / s sequential throughput and 333,941 IOPS under a RAID 5 configuration with 10GbE Aggregation Link enabled. 

Through advanced flash technology, the combination of hard drives and SSD cache increases throughput efficiently while minimizing costs per gigabyte. In addition to the four 1GbE RJ-45 ports by default, the RS3617xs comes with dual PCIe 3.0 x8 slots, enabling the installation of two 10GbE Network Interface Cards (NICs) to maximize bandwidth. 

Delivering superior performance required by data intensive applications from storage systems. Equipped with 4GB DDR3 ECC RAM and expansion support of up to 32GB, RS3617xs ensures superior data accuracy and performance to provide a solid foundation for important business tasks.

RS3617xs Generation Storage Efficiency

RS3617xs integrates the Btrfs file system, bringing the most advanced storage technology to meet modern large-scale business management needs: Flexible Shared Folders / User Quota Systems provide comprehensive quota control for all user accounts and shared folders. 

Advanced snapshot technology with an adjustable backup schedule allows up to 1,024 backup copies of shared folders and 65,000 copies of snapshots of all systems without occupying large storage capacity and system resources. File or folder level data recovery brings great convenience and saves time for users who want to return only one particular file or folder. 

Cloud Station with file version reduces up to half of storage consumption when compared to ext4 file system. RS3617xs provides unlimited storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere 6 certification and VAAI integration, RS3617xs helps dismantle special storage operations and optimize computing power performance and efficiency unmatched in the VMware environment. 

As a centralized storage of virtual environments, RS3617xs enables virtual machine migration, enabling the transfer from server to server while eliminating service downtime and interference to users. Transferred Data Offloaded (ODX) and Synology Advanced LUN support greatly improve the efficiency of data transfers and massive migration.

RS3617xs Comprehensive Business Application

Supported by the innovative Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), RS3617xs comes fully with applications and features specifically designed for large-scale businesses: Easy integration with existing business network environments through Windows® AD and LDAP directory services without re-creating user accounts. 

Windows ACL support provides fine-grained access control and efficient settings privileges, enabling RS3617xs to enter current infrastructure The default backup application protects information assets by backing up files and iSCSI LUNs locally and remotely. Continuous data protection with a shared folder snapshot allows recovery of previous versions when needed. 

The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) in folders along with hardware acceleration ensures security without reducing access performance, providing more than 2,612MB / s reading. Strong scalability RS3617xs are designed to grow with businesses and provide the ability to seamlessly expand one volume up to 200TB (with 32GB of installed RAM) / 108TB quickly in RS3617xs. 

RS3617xs supports up to 36 HDDs or SSDs for flexible capacity and balanced performance to meet the needs of various applications and processes. When the RS3617x storage capacity is close to its limit, expansion is easy to do with up to two Synology Expansion Units RX1217 / RX1217RP via a connection cable specifically designed to maximize data transmission throughput between the main server and expansion unit.

Large storage space management on the RS3617xs is simple and flexible. Many volumes on RAID allow users to create more than one volume in a RAID structure, providing a flexible and efficient way to manage storage on all hard drives. When more space is needed, the volume can be easily expanded without service interruption. 

Reliability, Availability & Disaster Recovery System reliability is very important for businesses that depend on commercial servers every day. RS3617xs responds to this problem with wide coverage. High Availability Synology ensures a smooth transition between clustered servers in the event of a server failure with minimal impact on the application. 

Shared Folder Sync replicates data in real-time to other Synology NAS locations for fast disaster recovery to meet. (RTO) business Fan redundant systems and network ports with failover support ensure continuous service uptime. 

High reliability system design including fanless heat-sink CPU and passive cooling Technology prevents a single point of failure. The ECC RAM module detects and corrects errors during data transmission. The free system fan design tool allows hot swaps and system exchanges that don't work easily using RS3617xs.
