Robust scalability up to 636TB

By supporting up to eight Synology RX1213sas, RS10613xs+ provides the ability to seamlessly expand up to 636TB of total storage capacity and expand a single volume up to 108TB on the fly. RS10613xs+ supports up to 106 SATA, SAS, or SSD drives for flexible capacity and balanced performance to meet the needs of varying applications and processes.

Hardware encryption engine enhances file transfer speeds

RS10613xs+ is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads encryption calculation tasks away from the main CPU. Thus, the CPU can be free for other important tasks. In addition, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) on shared folders with hardware acceleration ensures security without compromising access performance, providing over 2,355MB/s in reading.

Dual 10GbE ports and SAS & SATA III 6Gb/s support

In addition to the default 4 Gigabit ports, RS10613xs+ supports dual 10GbE ports with one add-on PCI Express Gen2 x8 Network Interface Card for maximized bandwidth, bringing you the superior performance that data-intensive applications demand of your storage system. With native SAS & SATA III 6Gb/s interface support, RS10613xs+ ensures the optimum data process under heavy system loading.

Reliable redundancy mechanisms

RS10613xs+ comes with comprehensive redundancy mechanisms to ensure business continuity. Four built-in LAN ports with failover provides the reliable redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure. The high reliability system design including fan-less CPU heat-sink and passive cooling technologies prevents single point of failure. Other features such as redundant data paths, power supplies, system fans, and network ports with failover support ensure continual service uptime.

5 year warranty

Synology RS10613xs+ is backed with Synology's 5-year limited warranty. With full technical support and hardware replacement service, the five-year warranty maximizes your enterprises' return on investment. For the entire duration, you will enjoy full technical support via e-mail and telephone.

Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager

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.

Fit into business environments easily

With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, RS10613xs+ 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 RS10613xs+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS10613xs+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS10613xs+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.

Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments

RS10613xs+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, RS10613xs+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments. Windows ODX support speeds up data manipulation as the data transfer is offloaded. iSCSI also lets SMB users consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.

Unified storage system

RS10613xs+ 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). RS10613xs+ 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.

Protection by LUN backup, snapshot, and clone

RS10613xs+ enhances the ease of moving and copying data in a virtualized environment with the features - LUN Backup, LUN Snapshot, and LUN Clone. RS10613xs+ offers iSCSI LUN backup at storage level without extra charge. Synology LUN Clone and LUN Snapshot only take up 1/1000 of the original size which highly optimizes 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 VMware vSphere or Windows environment, IT managers can expect guaranteed VM status and data consistency through application-consistent snapshots.

Synology CMS (Central Management System)

For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all of them from a single point of entry. Through a simple interface, you can obtain a clear overview on resource consumption and logs, helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS can do much more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without extra configuration.

Increase business productivity with cloud solutions

With comprehensive cloud solutions, RS10613xs+ lets you create your own cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices with the benefit of better privacy for important data. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which retains up to 32 versions to avoid file overwriting. With mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprise, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can customize synchronization rules, such as avoiding syncing large files to optimize bandwidth usage.

Ensuring business continuity & reliability

Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. RS10613xs+ offers Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and a passive server into one high-availability cluster, the latter always mirrored to the former. Shared Folder Sync can replicate data in real-time to another Synology NAS at a remote location, giving your business the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for prompt disaster recovery. With multiple LAN ports, RS10613xs+ also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure.

*Please refer to the SHA White Paper for more details.

Secure your data

RS10613xs+ provides share-level AES 256-bit encryption to block off unauthorized access attempts. Once you create and encrypt a shared folder, people without the encryption key will not be able to use the encrypted data even if they remove the hard drives from your RS10613xs+ and mount it on their device. 2-Step verification gives an extra layer of protection as 6-digit one-time code sending to your mobile device is required for login. In addition, RS10613xs+ provides other security add-ons, such as IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention. These enhancements ensures a secure DSM environment.
