Sorry, this unit has been discontinued. Please, contact us for a replacement product!

Overview:

Designed for distributed enterprises, RS3614xs and RS3614RPxs (equipped with redundant power supplies) provide a reliable and ultra-high performance network attached storage solution to centralize data protection, simplify data management, and deploy virtualization solutions with minimal time spent on setup and maintenance.

Ultra-high performance

RS3614xs/RS3614RPxs delivers ultra-high performance at 2,822.58 MB/s throughput and 225,749 IOPS under RAID 5 configuration.1 RS3614xs/RS3614RPxs is equipped with 4GB RAM and up to 32GB ECC RAM expansion support, so enterprises can guarantee data accuracy as well as superior ultra-high performance for the mission-critical tasks of the business.

Ultra High Performance

Robust scalability up to 216TB

With 12 HDD trays and support for adding up to two Synology RX1214/RX1214RP2 expansion units, RS3614xs/RS3614RPxs provides the ability to seamlessly expand up to 216TB3 of total storage capacity and expand a single volume up to 108TB on the fly. When the storage capacity of RS3614xs/RS3614RPxs nears it limit, expansion is easily accomplished as it supports up to 36 HDDs or SSDs. RS3614xs/RS3614RPxs provides enterprises flexible capacity and balanced performance to meet the needs of varying applications and processes.

Robust Scalability up to 216TB

Four 10GbE ports and SATA III 6Gb/s support

In addition to the default 4 Gigabit ports, RS3614xs comes with dual PCI Express 3.0 x8 slots (white running at x8 mode, black running at x4 mode), allowing installation of dual 10GbE Network Interface Cards (NIC) for maximized bandwidth. Dual PCIe slots for quad 10GbE ports support brings you the superior performance that data-intensive applications demand of your storage system. Coming with native SATA III 6Gb/s support, RS3614xs ensures the optimum data process under heavy system loading.

Four 10GbE ports and SATA 3 6Gb/s support

Hardware encryption engine enhances file transfer speeds

RS3614xs/RS3614RPxs is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads encryption calculation tasks away from the main CPU. Thus, the CPU can be free for other important tasks. In addition, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) on shared folders with hardware acceleration ensures security without compromising access performance, providing over 2,485MB/s in reading.

Hardware Encryption file transfer speeds

SSD cache technology

RS3614xs supports a combination of hard drives and read/write-optimized SSD cache, boosting throughput efficiently while minimizing cost per gigabyte. With full SSD cache reading and writing support, RS3614xs offers a significant reduction in I/O latency without crippling your budget. With only a small upfront investment, businesses can benefit from significant enhancement in server performance.

Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager

Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, browser-based operating system running on every DiskStation and RackStation, which makes managing your Synology NAS a breeze. Featuring an intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data smarter and simpler. Synology's Package Center lets you download and install useful add-on packages designed specifically for individual or business needs, meaning you can enjoy more entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.

Award winning OS

Fit into business environments easily

With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, RS18016xsplus enables seamless account integration. The User Home feature can automatically create a "home" folder for every user account to minimize the administrator's effort in repeatedly creating "home" folders for all accounts. Windows ACL support on RS18016xsplus allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS18016xsplus through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS18016xsplus can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.

Fit into business environments easily

Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments

RS18016xsplus provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, RS18016xsplus helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments. Windows ODX support speeds up data manipulation as the data transfer is offloaded. iSCSI also lets SMB users consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.

Seamless storage solution

Unified storage system

RS18016xsplus enables businesses to cost-effectively manage multi-protocol data by integrating file-level (NAS) and block-level (SAN) storage into one unified storage system. Files can be shared across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® platforms seamlessly with comprehensive network protocol support (CIFS/SMB, AFP, and NFS). RS18016xsplus provides a cost-effective iSCSI solution, allowing large scale businesses to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays. With thin provisioning available for file-level iSCSI LUN, you can maximize storage utilization by oversubscribing provisions and grow storage space as needed.

Unified Storage System

Protection by LUN backup, snapshot, and clone

RS18016xsplus enhances the ease of moving and copying data in a virtualized environment with the features - LUN Backup, LUN Snapshot, and LUN Clone. RS18016xsplus offers iSCSI LUN backup at storage level without extra charge. Synology LUN Clone and LUN Snapshot only take up 1/1000 of the original size which highly optimizes storage usage. In addition, Synology's LUN Snapshot lets you create up 256 snapshots per LUN using point-in-time technology without having any impact on system performance. With better support to servers under VMware vSphere or Windows environment, IT managers can expect guaranteed VM status and data consistency through application-consistent snapshots.

Protection

Synology CMS (Central Management System)

For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all of them from a single point of entry. Through a simple interface, you can obtain a clear overview on resource consumption and logs, helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS can do much more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without extra configuration.

Increase business productivity with cloud solutions

With comprehensive cloud solutions, RS18016xsplus lets you create your own private cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which keeps up to 32 historical versions, allowing you to restore a file back to previous version or recover deleted files. With the mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprises, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can handpick individual folders that they want to sync to different devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size. Folders synced by Cloud Station can be encrypted on DSM — no one will be able to access its content without your private key.

Increase Business Productivity with Cloud solutions

Ensuring business continuity & reliability

Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. RS18016xsplus offers Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former always mirrored to the latter. Shared Folder Sync can replicate data in real-time to another Synology NAS at a remote location, giving your business the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for prompt disaster recovery. With multiple LAN ports, RS18016xsplus also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure.

Ensuring business continuity and reliability

Secure your data

RS18016xsplus offers advanced security measures to protect you from potential security holes. Security Advisor analyzes system settings, password strength, network preferences and removes any possible malware. AppArmor blocks malicious programs from accessing unauthorized system resources. You can also customize the trust level in Package Center to avoid installing packages from untrusted sources, safeguarding your NAS from unknown or tampered files. In addition, RS18016xsplus provides other security add-ons, such as AES encryption, 2-Step verification, IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention.
