Product Details

Designed for businesses seeking large data storage capacity, RS3617RPxs is a high-performance, 12-bay rackmount NAS equipped with redundant power supplies, ensuring business continuity. Organizations can integrate seamlessly with virtualization solutions including Citrix, Hyper-V, and OpenStack Cinder.

RS3617RPxs delivers better performance with over 3,829 MB/s sequential throughput and 433,873 IOPS under a RAID 5 configuration with 10GbE Link Aggregation. Equipped with 8GB DDR4 ECC RAM (upgradeable to 64GB), RS3617RPxs ensures data accuracy when handling high-value data and mission-critical tasks across large-scale businesses.

As your data storage needs grow, RS3617RPxs can be connected to one or two dedicated RX1217/RX1217RP expansion units, allowing you to expand storage capacity up to 36 drives without disrupting service. The high-bandwidth cable ensures speedy data transmission between the main server and expansion unit.

In addition to the four built-in Gigabit ports, RS3617RPxs comes with two PCIe 3.0 x8 slots that allows for the installation of two 10GbE Network Interface Cards (NIC), maximizing bandwidth and meeting high performance requirements for data-intensive applications.

RS3617RPxs comes with comprehensive redundancy mechanisms to ensure business continuity. Built-in four LAN ports with failover provides reliable redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure. The high reliability system design, including fanless CPU heat-sink and passive cooling technologies, prevents a single point of failure. Other features such as redundant power supplies, system fans, and network ports with failover support ensure continual service uptime.

RS3617RPxs is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads encryption calculation tasks from the main CPU, thus allowing it to perform other important tasks. In addition, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) on shared folders with hardware acceleration ensures security without compromising access performance, providing over 2,916MB/s in reading.

RS3617RPxs 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, RS3617RPxs 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.

Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, browser-based operating system running on every DiskStation and RackStation, which makes managing your Synology NAS a breeze. Featuring an intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data smarter and simpler. Synology's Package Center lets you download and install useful add-on packages designed specifically for individual or business needs, meaning you can enjoy more entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.

With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, RS3617RPxs 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 RS3617RPxs allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS3617RPxs through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS3617RPxs can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.

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, RS3617RPxs ensures information is stored with a high level of data integrity, while providing flexible and efficient data protection tools.

RS3617RPxs 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). RS3617RPxs 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.

RS3617RPxs enhances the ease of moving and copying data in a virtualized environment with the features LUN Snapshot, clone, and replication. Synology’s LUN Clone and LUN Snapshot only consume 1/1000 of the original size highly optimizing storage usage. In addition, Synology's LUN Snapshot lets you create up 256 snapshots per LUN using point-in-time technology without having any impact on system performance. With better support to servers under Windows environment, IT managers can expect VM status and data consistency through application-consistent snapshots.

RS3617RPxs offers advanced security measures to protect you from potential security holes. Security Advisor analyzes system settings, password strength, network preferences and removes any possible malware. AppArmor blocks malicious programs from accessing unauthorized system resources. You can also customize the trust level in Package Center to avoid installing packages from untrusted sources, safeguarding your NAS from unknown or tampered files. In addition, RS3617RPxs provides other security add-ons, such as AES encryption, 2-Step verification, IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention.
