RackStation RS3617RPxs

Synology RackStation RS3617RPxs provides reliable and high-performance network installed storage solutions for large-scale businesses with comprehensive business applications. RS3617RPxs simplifies data management, optimizes virtualization environments, and quickly expands storage capacity with minimal time investment in setup and maintenance. 

Synology RS3617RPxs is supported by a 5-year limited warranty from Synology. RS3617RPxs provides outstanding performance at more than 3,829MB / s sequential throughput and 433,873 IOPS under RAID 5 configurations with 10GbE Aggregation Link enabled1. 

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 RS3617RPxs comes with dual PCIe 3.0 x8 slots, allowing installation of two 10GbE Network Interface Cards (NICs) to meet data intensive application requests. 

Equipped with 8GB DDR4 ECC UDIMM and expansion support of up to 64GB, RS3617RPxs ensures superior data accuracy and performance to provide a solid foundation for the important tasks of your business.

Next Generation RS3617RPxs Efficiency

RS3617RPxs integrates the Btrfs file system, bringing the most advanced storage technology to meet the needs of modern large-scale business management:

● 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 the system 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 the file version reduces up to half of current storage consumption compared to the ext4 file system.

RS3617RPxs Ready for Virtualization

RS3617RPxs provides unlimited storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, Hyper-V, and OpenStack Cinder. With VMware vSphere 6 and VAAI Certified integration, RS3617RPxs helps dismantle special storage operations and optimize computing power for performance and efficiency that is unmatched in the VMware environment. 

As a centralized storage of virtual environments, RS3617RPxs allows migratory virtual machines, enabling transfer from server to server while eliminating service downtime and disruption to users. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) and Synology Advanced LUN Support greatly improve the efficiency of data transfers and massive migration. With OpenStack Cinder Support, RS3617RPxs can be used as a block-based storage component for servers that comply with the Cinder API. 

Comprehensive Business Application with RS3617RPxs

Powered by the innovative Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), RS3617RPxs is fully equipped 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, allowing the RS3617RPx to enter the current infrastructure smoothly. 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.

RS3617RPxs Strong scalability

RS3617RPxs are designed to grow with businesses and provide the ability to seamlessly expand one volume to 108TB (default) / 200TB (with at least 32GB of installed RAM) active flies. RS3617RPxs supports up to 36 HDDs or SSDs for flexible capacity and balanced performance to meet the needs of various applications and processes. 

When RS3617RPx storage capacity is close to its limit, easy expansion is carried out up to two RX1217 / RX1217RP Synology Expansion Units through a connection cable specifically designed to maximize data transmission throughput between the main server and expansion unit. Large storage space management on the RS3617RPxs is simple and flexible. 

Multiple Volume on RAID allows 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 the need for more space appears, volumes can easily be expanded without any service interruptions. 

RS3617RPxs Reliability, Availability & Disaster Recovery

System reliability is very important for businesses that depend on commercial servers every day. RS3617RPxs responds to this problem with a wide range of availability and redundancy features: High Availability Synology ensures a smooth transition between clustered servers in the event of a server failure with minimal impact on the application. 

Snapshot replication provides scheduled and almost instant data protection, ensures business documents in shared folders, virtual machines on iSCSI LUNs, or Docker DSM data remains safe and available in the event of a disaster. Redundant power supply, system fans, 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. DDR4 ECC UDIMM reduces power consumption and detects and corrects errors during data transmission in RS3617RPxs.
