Performance

A quad-core Intel® Xeon® processor powers each controller for enhanced reliability and performance of up to 140,000 4K random write IOPs.

Scalable memory

Each controller board features four DDR4 ECC UDIMM slots for expandability and improved system performance.

Cooling

Modularized fans with redundancy regulate system temperatures and are easy to service and replace.

Independent system architecture

The management operating system, DSM UC, is stored on a separate SATA DOM drive on each controller.

Non-Transparent Bridge (NTB)

System memory is synchronized between controllers using a high-speed interface to maximize the protection of in-flight data.

Works with mainstream virtualization systems

Optimized for virtualization environments.

  • Integrated with VMware vSphere® 6.5, Microsoft Hyper-V®, and VAAI to offload storage operations and optimize computational efficiency.
  • Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) is supported to speed up data transfer and migration rates.
  • Turn Synology UC3200 into a block-based storage component with the support of OpenStack® Cinder.
  • Compliance with the ALUA industry standard allows hosts to identify optimized paths to increase data transfer performance and efficiency.

Engineered for iSCSI/FC SAN

DSM UC, an operating system designed to ease the learning curve, allows you to manage the two controllers from one single portal. The built-in monitor applications display the status at a glance and send prompt notifications when important events occur, so that IT administrators can stay alert to potential problems and respond in the shortest time possible.

Engineered for iSCSI/FC SAN

A unified interface for intuitive management

Cutting-edge LUN features

Advanced LUN functionality significantly improves VM performance and offers lightning-fast snapshot creation, recovery, and cloning, as well as VMware VAAI and Windows ODX support.

Intuitive management

A streamlined management interface makes connection and permission management exceptionally easy, even in large-scale SAN environments.

For large and small deployments

Support for iSCSI as well as Fibre Channel means that Synology storage systems integrate as easily in smaller setups as in enterprise environments.

A unified interface for intuitive management

Disaster-proof your critical data

Leverage application-aware snapshot protection and instant recovery of virtual machines on LUNs in case of disaster. Snapshot Replication (enabled by the Btrfs file system) offers schedulable and near-instantaneous data protection, while UC3200 supports up to 4,096 system-wide snapshots of local volumes or off-site servers.
