Blazing fast all-flash NAS for intensive I/O applications, powered by Intel® technology
Taipei, Taiwan—April 2017—Synology® today launched FlashStation FS2017, a high-performance and scalable NAS designed for enterprise usage. Capable of handling over 90,000 IOPS in 4K random writing, FS2017 is perfect for big data analysis, video post-production, virtualization, and handling any demanding database application that requires high IOPS and low latency at the same time.
FS2017 is powered by an 8-core Intel® Xeon® D processor together with 16 Gigabytes of DDR4 ECC RDIMM that is expandable up to 128GB. The cutting-edge hardware delivers high performance and throughput even with multitasking and multiple virtual machines hosted. Four Gigabit ports allow simple plug-and-play into existing RJ45 based networks, ensuring continual network uptime. For higher bandwidth applications, the dual 10GBASE-T ports with the option of an additional 10GbE / 25GbE / 40GbE NIC can maximize throughput and meet data-intensive requirements.
“A common challenge for RAID on SSDs is how to prevent multiple drives from failing at the same time,” said Vic Hsu, CEO at Synology Inc. “RAID F1 is designed precisely to address this pain point. With a special algorithm for workload distribution among SSDs, RAID-F1 enhances the resilience of your flash storage pool to ensure data safety.”
“Businesses need reliable and easy-to-use storage solutions that give them immediate access to their most critical data,” said Ran Senderovitz, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Wireless Consumer and Commercial Infrastructure Group. “The Intel® Xeon®D processor family delivers exceptional efficiency, performance, and I/O options, offering a strong foundation for storage solutions.”
FS2017 runs on Synology’s award-winning NAS operating system DSM, with built-in Snapshot Replication which creates up to 65,000 backup copies to offsite servers, and a virtualization solution that incorporates VMware, Citrix, Hyper-V, and OpenStack integration. Together with Windows ACL, Windows® AD and LDAP integration support, FS2017 is an exceptionally capable NAS for any large-scale businesses.
