With iSCSI storage, you can easily leverage existing network equipment and connect servers, workstations to DiskStation in a virtual environment. This means two things for your business: reduced management complexity by having a centralized storage pool and boost server performance and efficiency by offloading tasks relating to storing data.

Storage Manager makes it effortless to create, remove and edit your LUNs and iSCSI Targets . With an easy to use interface, changing settings and applying them will only take a few clicks to complete. You can also browse and see LUN and Target information all at once.
Synology’s LUN Clone lets you create near-instantaneous virtual copies of a LUN with a simple click. For system engineers, it means much higher productivity and less complex deployment during system-wide operations. LUN Clone also consumes only a fraction of storage at the time of creation. The result: Your overall performance won’t be compromised thanks to the seamless and fluid LUN Clone.
Synology’s LUN Snapshot lets you create up 256 snapshots per LUN using point-in-time technology without having any impact to system performance. It’s efficient for your valuable storage space and also adds a solid layer of protection, knowing that you can easily recover valuable data.
Traditionally, backing up a LUN from one storage device to another will take up a good portion of your server’s computing resources. As a robust and efficient storage server, DiskStation allows you to perform the backup task at the storage level – at no additional infrastructure cost.
