Expandable Storage with Outstanding Performance

SA3600 is equipped with an Intel Xeon D-1567 12-core CPU and 16 GB ECC RDIMM (upgradable to 128 GB) to ensure system performance and data integrity. Offering dual built-in 10GBASE-T Ethernet and dual PCIe 3.0 slots for expansion of 10/25/40GbE network interface cards, SA3600 delivers over 5,561 MB/s sequential throughput via aggregated 10Gb Ethernet.

With the ability to scale up its storage to 180 drives and deliver raw capacity at petabyte scale, SA3600 can easily fulfill the need for video post-production and massive surveillance deployment. Supporting SAS and SATA drives without vendor lock-in, SA3600 provides an elastic and expandable storage solution with optimized total cost of ownership (TCO).

Effortless Virtualization Deployment

Synology’s Virtual Machine Manager adds boundless capabilities to your NAS. You can set up and run various virtual machines including Windows, Linux, and Virtual DSM on your NAS to test new software versions in a sandbox environment, isolate your customers' machines, and increase the flexibility of your SA3600 with reduced hardware deployment and maintenance costs. Synology iSCSI storage fully supports most virtualization solutions to enhance work efficiency with a simple management interface. VMware vSphere™ 6.5 and VAAI integration helps offload storage operations and optimizes computational efficiency. While Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) speeds up data transfer and migration rates, the support for OpenStack Cinder transforms your SA3600 into a block-based storage component.
