Take Your Business To The Next Level

Enterprises are now faced with the challenge to handle I/O-intensive and latency sensitive applications. Whether this is managing large raw files, databases or virtual machines the powerful all-flash NAS can cater to these needs as an easily maintainable and affordable solution.

SSD

Cost-Effective Flexibility

All-flash storage arrays are notoriously expensive due to vendor lock-ins. The FS3017 FlashStation give you the flexibility and freedom to choose your own SSDs accepting both high-end SAS SSDs and mainstream SATA SSDs.

Overcome BottlenecksData

Two key factors, High latency, and Low random IOPS are the biggest nuisance in regular storage arrays and can be frustrating as well as costly when dealing with unresponsive infrastructure, this is where the FlashStation by Synology steps in. Delivering a massive iSCSI 200,000 4K random write IOPS, with its 6-core Xeon processor and 64GB DDR4 ECC RAM with NUMA integration, for even more performance upgrade to 512GB.

RAID F1

RAID Protection

When building an all SSD RAID array, it’s common for all the disks to all wear out at the same time, due to the evenly distributed workload. With RAID F1, one system assigned SSD takes the heat, handling most of the write intensive system-assigned operations. This process allows the users to switch out a single dead disk rather than risking multiple SSD failures at once.

Future-proof Networking

Dual 10GBase-T ports make the FS3017 a powerful unit, but if you need more, two PCIe slots allow you to add more ethernet controllers. Unlock the full potential of Synology’s FlashStation by choosing between 10GbE, 25GbE and 40GbE and leverage iSCSI over RDMA technology to enhacne iSCSI performance by up to 80%.
