Synology release first ever Flash Station to market
Synology launched FlashStation FS3017, the company’s pioneer product within an entirely new all-flash series. Capable of handling over 200,000 IOPS in 4k random writing with RDMA technology enabled, the FS3017 is perfect for big data analysis, video post-production, virtualisation, and handling any demanding database application that requires high IOPS and low latency at the same time.
FS3017 features dual Intel Xeon 6-core processors, 64GB DDR4 ECC RDIMM (expandable up to 512GB), dual built-in 10GBase-T ports, and supports optional 10GbE / 25GbE / 40GbE NICs, guaranteeing stable performance in multitasking and data throughput. FS3017 is also compatible with various SATA/SAS SSD brands, offering users more flexibility with their budgets.
“With Synology’s new signature feature RAID F1, we unevenly distribute parity bits across all SSDs to prevent RAID crashes,” says Vice President Vic Hsu, “when the oldest SSD handling the most write-intensive operations wears out, users simply replace it with a new disk without interrupting the RAID.”
FS3017 runs on Synology’s award-winning NAS operating system DSM, with built-in Snapshot Replication which creates 65,000 backup copies to offsite servers, and an inclusive virtualisation solution that incorporates VMware, Citrix, Hyper-V, and OpenStack integration. With Windows ACL, Windows® AD and LDAP integration support, plus various application privileges, the FS3017 will soon become the go-to choice for large-scale businesses.
FS3017 won Synology another Best Choice Award from the 2016 Computex, maintaining the company’s six-year winning streak, just a few months after topping TechTarget’s Quality Awards survey for NAS systems.
