FS3017


FlashStation FS3017

The FS3017 Designed for a very fast computing environment, Synology FlashStation FS3017 is a very reliable, all-flash storage solution that is very cost-effective and high performance with comprehensive business applications for enterprise users. 

Synology FlashStation FS3017 simplifies data management and optimizes virtualization environments, with minimal time investment in setup and maintenance. Synology FS3017 is supported by a 5-year limited warranty from Synology. 

Powered by two Intel Xeon E5-2620 six-core CPUs and 64GB DDR4 ECC RDIMMs (up to 512GB), the Synology FS3017 delivers more than 200,000 Random Write IOPS1, making it ideal for post video production, mail servers, virtualization, and application databases, which requires very high performance and low latency. 

The FS3017 comes with a 10GBase-T dual port and supports 10GbE / optional 25GbE / 40GbE network interface card, allowing more flexibility for network configuration. Network performance is increasingly enhanced by iSCSI through RDMA2 and Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) integration.

FS3017 Cost-effective Integrated Storage

Synology FS3017 is compatible with the main SAS / SATA SSD brand to avoid vendor locks. FS3017 is also an integrated storage server that supports iSCSI service sharing protocols and files, which provide cost savings and simplicity of storage consolidation through existing networks while providing the flexibility needed by virtual server environments. 

In addition to the 24 internal drive space, the FS3017 supports two Synology RX2417sas4 Expansion Units to provide a total of 72 2.5 "drive bays for flexible storage management. FS3017 provides unlimited storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, Hyper-V, and OpenStack in FS3017. 

With VMware vSphere 6 and VAAI-certified integration, the FS3017 helps dismantle special storage operations and optimizes computational power for performance and efficiency unmatched in the VMware Environment. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) and Synology Advanced LUN support greatly increases the efficiency of massive data transfers and migration. With OpenStack support, FS3017 can be used as a block-based storage component for servers that comply with the Cinder API. 

Rock-Solid Data Protection with FS3017

Snapshot Application Replication provides scheduled, almost instant data protection. It replicates 65,000 backup copies of the entire system to off-site servers and local volumes, bringing instant data protection and ensuring data in shared folders or virtual machines on iSCSI LUN remains available in the event of a disaster. 

With additional block level backup and cross-version deduplication, Synology Hyper Backup provides multi-version backup with optimized storage space and allows multiple backup destinations to local shared folders, external hard drives, shared network folders, rsync servers, and public cloud services. 

Powered by the innovative Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), the FS3017 comes complete with applications and features specifically designed for large-scale businesses: Windows® AD and LDAP support allows easy integration with existing business directory services without re-creating user accounts. 

Windows ACL support provides fine grained access control and efficient privileged settings, allowing the FS3017 to enter infrastructure today. MailPlus allows your business to create secure, reliable, and secure private mailers while giving your employees a modern email client to receive and send messages.

Reliability and Availability of the FS3017 System

System reliability is very important for businesses that depend on their commercial servers every day. FS3017 responds to this problem with extensive availability and redundancy features: Synology RAID F1 optimizes RAID volume integrity and extends SSD life. High Availability Synology ensures a smooth transition between server clusters if one node fails with minimal impact on the application. 

The redundant power supply, system fan, and several network ports with failover support ensure continuous maximum service uptime. DDR4 ECC RDIMM detects and corrects errors properly during data transmission. The fan-free system design tool allows a simple heat exchange and exchange of non-functioning system fans. The optional Synology RKS1317 rail kit provides quick and easy installation and maintenance of the system with FS3017.
