Powered by two Intel Xeon E5-2620 six-core CPUs and 64GB DDR4 ECC RDIMM (up to 512GB), Synology FS3017 delivers over 200,000 4K Random Write IOPS1 , making it ideal for video post-productions, mail server, virtualization and database applications, which require ultra-high performance and low latency.
FS3017 comes with dual 10GBase-T ports and supports optional 10GbE / 25GbE / 40GbE network interface cards, allowing more flexibilities for network configurations. Network performance is further enhanced with iSCSI over RDMA2 and Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) integration.
Cost Effective Unified Storage
Synology FS3017 is compatible to major SAS / SATA SSD brands to avoid vendor lock-in. FS3017 is also a unified storage server supporting iSCSI protocol and file sharing services, which provides the cost savings and simplicity of consolidating storage over an existing network while providing the flexibility required by virtual server environments. In addition to the internal 24 drive bays, FS3017 supports up to two Synology Expansion Unit RX2417sas to provide a total of 72 2.5" drive bays for flexible storage management.
FS3017 provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, Hyper-V, and OpenStack. With VMware vSphere 6 and VAAI integration certified, FS3017 helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computing power for unparalleled performance and efficiency in VMware environments. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) and Synology Advanced LUN support greatly improves the efficiency on massive data transfer and migration. With OpenStack support, FS3017 can be used as a block-based storage component for servers complying with the Cinder API.
Rock-Solid Data Protection
The Snapshot Replication application provides schedulable, near-instantaneous data protection. It replicates 65,000 system-wide backup copies to offsite servers and local volumes, bringing near-instantaneous data protection and ensuring data in shared folders or virtual machines in iSCSI LUNs remain available in the event of a disaster.
With block-level incremental backup and cross-version deduplication, Synology Hyper Backup provides multi-version backup with optimized storage space utilization and allows multiple backup destinations to local shared folders, external hard drives, network shared folders, rsync server, and public cloud services.
Comprehensive Business Applications
Powered by the innovative Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), FS3017 comes fully-equipped with applications and features designed specifically for large-scale business:
- Windows AD and LDAP support allowing easy integration with existing business directory services without recreating user accounts.
- Windows ACL support provides fine-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing FS3017 to fit seamlessly into current infrastructure.
- MailPlus allows your business to set up a secure, reliable, and private mail server while giving your employees a modern mail client for receiving and sending messages.
Reliability and System Availability
System reliability is of paramount importance to businesses which depend upon their commercial servers every day. FS3017 responds to these concerns with wide-ranging availability and redundancy features:
- Synology RAID F1 optimizes RAID volume integrity and extends SSD lifespan.
- Synology High Availability ensures seamless transition between clustered servers in the event of one node failing with minimal impact to applications.
- Redundant power supplies, system fans, and multiple network ports with failover support ensure maximum continuous service uptime.
- DDR4 ECC RDIMM detects and corrects errors during data transmission.
- The tool-free system fan design allows hot swapping and simple exchanging of malfunctioned system fans. Optional Synology RKS1317 rail kit provides fast and easy system installation and maintenance.
Astonishing performance, no more bottlenecks
Enterprises are now challenged to handle I/O-intensive and latency sensitive applications, whether it's managing large raw files, virtual machines, or databases, FS3017 is an easy to maintain, affordable, yet powerful all-flash NAS solution for businesses.
Due to vendor lock-in, all-flash storage is notoriously expensive, but FS3017 accepts both high-end SAS SSD and the more mainstream SATA SSD. Raw capacity of FS3017 reaches 90TB1.
Compared with traditional RAID, RAID F1 distributes uneven workload to SSDs to prevent all drives from wearing out simultaneously.
Due to the peculiarities of SSD and RAID technology, a common challenge lies in how to prevent all of the drives from failing at the same time because of the evenly distributed workload. RAID F1 alleviates this problem with a specially designed algorithm to unevenly distribute workload to drives, enhancing the resilience of the storage pool and ensuring your data remains safe.
FS3017 is equipped with two 10GBase-T ports. If you need more horsepower, FS3017 also has two PCIe slots available for adding more Ethernet controllers. Choose between 10GbE, 25GbE, and 40GbE to unlock FS3017's full potential. In addition, you can leverage iSCSI over RDMA technology to enhance iSCSI performance by up to 80% with an optional purchase of supported NIC on FS3017.
Fully certified storage virtualization solutions
Synology iSCSI storage fully supports most virtualization solutions to enhance work efficiency with easy management interface. VMware vSphere 6 and VAAI integration helps offload storage operations and optimizes computation efficiency. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) speeds up data transfer and migration rate. OpenStack Cinder support turns your Synology NAS into a block-based storage component.
