High-speed Scalable Storage Server
Synology RS3618xs is a 2U 12-bay rackmount network-attached storage solution equipped with a quad-core processor and 8GB DDR4 memory (expandable up to 64GB), meeting the needs for large-scale businesses. With 10GbE Link Aggregation enabled, RS3618xs delivers great performance at over 3,900 MB/s sequential reading throughput and 143,500 iSCSI random IOPS1 under a RAID 5 configuration. Encrypted data throughput can reach over 2,300 MB/s in reading and 1,177 MB/s in writing.
RS3618xs provides great flexibility to easily scale up to 36 drives when connected to two Synology RX1217 or RX1217RP2 expansion units. Storage capacity can be expanded according to your business needs with minimal effort.
Btrfs: Next Generation Storage Efficiency
RS3618xs introduces the Btrfs file system, bringing the most advanced storage technologies to meet the management needs of modern businesses:
- Advanced snapshot technology with customizable backup schedule allows up to 1,024 copies of shared folder backups in a minimum 5-minute interval without occupying huge storage capacity and system resources.
- File or folder level data restoration brings huge conveniences and saves time for users who wish to restore only a specific file or folder.
- Flexible Shared Folder/User Quota System provides comprehensive quota control over all user accounts and shared folders.
- File self-healing: Btrfs file system is able to auto-detect corrupted files with mirrored metadata, and recover broken data using the supported RAID volumes, which include RAID1, 5, 6, 10 and RAID F1.
Comprehensive Business Applications
Powered by the innovative Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), RS3618xs comes fully-equipped with applications and features designed specifically for large-scale businesses:
