Ultra-High Performance and Data Availability
With Link Aggregation, Synology DS3611xs delivers the high performance of over 1000 MB/sec throughput and 100,000 IOPS under RAID 5 configuration1. IIn addition to the default 4 Gigabit ports, dual 10GbE are supported with the add-on PCI Express x8 Gen2 Network Interface Card to maximize the system bandwidth. The network ports with failover support combining with hot-swappable drives will ensure continual service uptime during drives replacement or unexpected LAN failure.
The ECC RAM module on DS3611xs will detect and correct errors that occur during data transmission. Supporting up to 8GB ECC RAM, DS3611xs provides secure data protection and ultra-high performance to meet the need of large scale businesses for a strong foundation to face mission-critical tasks.
Robust Scalability Up to 100 TB
Synology DS3611xs is also designed to grow with your business and provides the ability to seamlessly expand a single volume up to 100TB on the fly. When the storage capacity of DS3611xs is nearing its limits, it can easily be expanded with Synology DX12113. It is connected to DS3611xs via an Infiniband cable that carries 12 Gb/s SATA signal to ensure maximum throughput.
Management of the large storage space on DS3611xs is simple and flexible. Multiple Volumes on RAID allows users to create more than one volume on a RAID structure, providing a flexible and efficient way to manage the storage across all hard drives. When the need for more space arises, the volume could be easily expanded without any service disruption.
Unified-Architecture and Virtualization Ready
Synology DS3611xs runs on the novel operating system, Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), which integrates file-level and block-level storage in one unified storage system. Comprehensive network protocol support (CIFS/SMB, AFP and NFS) assures seamless file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.
iSCSI is also supported as the ideal alternative to SAN solution for business. Affordable and cost-effective iSCSI allows large scale business to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks. With the iSCSI support, DS3611xs provides a seamless storage solution for virtualization servers, such as VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V.
Thin Provisioning is available for file-level iSCSI, enabling administrators to oversubscribe provision and then grow storage space as needed in safety. With Thin Provisioning, users are able to maximize the storage utilization to reduce the total cost of ownership for the storage system.
Complete Backup and Disaster Recovery Solutions
Synology DS3611xs offers a centralized backup target to consolidate fragmented and unstructured data across the network. Integrating easily into a current network structure and compatible with Windows®, Mac®, and Linux systems, DS3611xs provides the entire office data redundancy and protection.
