High-performance NAS server

RS3617xs delivers high performance at over 3,263 MB/s sequential throughput and 333,941 IOPS under a RAID 5 configuration1 with 10GbE Link Aggregation. Equipped with 4GB DDR3 ECC RAM (upgradeable to 32GB), RS3617xs ensures data accuracy when handling high-value data and mission-critical tasks across large-scale businesses.

 

Scale on demand

As your data storage needs grow, RS3617xs can be connected to a dedicated RX1217/RX1217RP2 expansion unit, allowing you to expand storage capacity up to 36 drives3 without disrupting service. The high-bandwidth expansion cable ensures speedy data transmission between the main server and expansion unit. Go to the RX1217/RX1217RP product page.

10GbE network capability

In addition to the default four Gigabit ports, RS3617xs comes with dual PCIe 3.0 x8 slots that supports up to two 10GbE Network Interface Cards (NIC), maximizing bandwidth and meeting high performance requirements for data-intensive applications.

 

Reliable redundancy mechanisms

RS3617xs comes with comprehensive redundancy mechanisms to ensure business continuity. Built-in four LAN ports with failover provides the reliable redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure. The high reliability system design including fan-less CPU heat-sink and passive cooling technologies prevents single point of failure.

 

Hardware encryption engine enhances file transfer speeds

RS3617xs 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 2,612MB/s in reading.

 
 

SSD cache technology

RS3617xs enables the 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, RS3617xs offers a significant reduction in I/O latency without crippling your budget. With only a small upfront investment, businesses can benefit from significant server performance enhancement.

Please refer to the SSD Cache White Paper for more details.

 
 

5 year warranty

Synology RS3617xs is backed with Synology's 5-year limited warranty. With technical support and hardware replacement service, the five-year warranty maximizes your enterprises' return on investment. For the entire duration, you will enjoy technical support via e-mail and telephone.

Fit into business environments easily

With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, RS3617xs 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 RS3617xs allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS3617xs through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS3617xs can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency. Learn more

 

Next-generation data protection and integrity

When dealing with large-scale data storage, businesses require a solution that offers reliable backup and prevents file corruption. With support for the next-generation Btrfs file system, RS3617xs ensures information is stored with a high level of data integrity, while providing flexible and efficient data protection tools. See the white paper for more technical details regarding Btrfs and data protection.

Fast and efficient snapshots

Snapshots preserve the history of a shared folder allowing you to save up to 1024 backup copies for point-in-time recovery. Snapshots can be automatically captured up to every 5 minutes, without noticeably impacting system performance.

Metadata mirroring and survivability

Btrfs file system stores two copies of critical metadata on a volume, improving the availability and ensuring the integrity of your file system.

Corruption detection and correction

Btrfs generates checksums for data and metadata, and then verifies the checksums during each read process to ensure the integrity of the filesystem and files. If the file system discovers a mismatch, metadata will be repaired to keep file system consistent. In the meantime, corrupted files will be reported and logged.

Customizable quotas for shared folders

With Btrfs, you can specify a storage limit for each shared folder, making it possible to precisely control space consumption when multiple teams or departments save files on the same Synology NAS server.

Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments

RS3617xs provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® & VAAI integration, RS3617xs 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.

Unified storage system

RS3617xs 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). RS3617xs 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. Learn more
