Active-active iSCSI server providing non-disruptive services
TAIPEI, Taiwan—November 14, 2019—Synology Inc. today launched Unified Controller UC3200, the first dual controller server aiming for highly available iSCSI data services in enterprises' mission-critical environments, along with its expansion unit RXD1219sas.
"A common challenge for enterprise IT administrators is to find a near-zero downtime iSCSI solution with a simple user interface and affordable total cost of ownership," said Jason Fan, Product Manager at Synology Inc. "The brand new Unified Controller UC3200 is designed to tackle these issues. UC3200 is an active-active IP SAN solution that can maximize service uptime, and its intuitive operating system also allows administrators to manage two controllers from one single portal, which facilitates management without a steep learning curve."
Powered by Intel® Xeon® 4-core, 2.4 GHz CPU and 8GB DDR4 ECC UDIMM per controller, UC3200 delivers over 140,000 4K random write IOPS in an aggregated 10GbE environment.1
Unitech Computer has joined the pre-launch beta program to help us ensure the stability of UC3200 in actual production environments. "Synology UC3200 has far exceeded my expectations with its stellar user experience. The setup is effortless, not to mention the seamless failover between the two active-active controllers when something goes wrong with our virtual storage," said Tony Chen, Manager of Technical Support Department at Unitech Computer. "Except email notifications, I've never heard any issues reported by my colleagues. I'll definitely recommend Synology UC3200 to businesses seeking an iSCSI storage for their virtualization environment as it ensures high reliability and performance at a price that represents good value for money."
With the exclusive hardware design, UC3200 helps businesses achieve near-zero service interruptions and further facilitate IT operations.
