Synology® announces HD6500 — a streamlined multi-petabyte scalable storage solution

Bellevue, Wash—June 15, 2022—Synology announces the availability of the HD6500, the first of the HD series, designed for super-sized storage needs. The 4U, 60-bay HD6500 streamlines petabyte-level storage with support for up to 960 TB per chassis. It can be easily paired with up to 4 additional RX6022sas 60-bay expansion units for over 4 PB of storage in 20U. HD6500 can deliver over 6688 MB/s in sequential read, and 6662 MB/s in sequential write1. It makes an extremely capable solution for scenarios requiring massive quantities of data such as large-scale storage for studios, large-scale video surveillance backup, and enterprise office PC backup.

"An HD6500 system is really pushing the boundaries of scalable storage," said Jason Fan, product manager at Synology. "The simple nature of it, practically plug and play, makes it easy to integrate into any existing IT environment, no additional training needed. Running DSM 7.1, HD6500 features the same comprehensive data management and backup solutions that our customers currently heavily depend upon, but now in a super-sized package."

Massive scalability with reliable performance

Designed specifically for use with Synology HAS5300 SAS HDDs, the HD6500's storage controllers, firmware, and operating system have been optimized and thoroughly validated for long-term performance reliability and data integrity. The inclusion of dual power supplies, SAS multipathing support, out-of-band management support, and dual independent system drives provide redundancy to ensure consistent and dependable data and service availability. 

Flexible connectivity options

With two 10GbE RJ-45 ports, three Gigabit Ethernet ports, and the ability to expand up to 10 additional 10GbE SFP+/RJ-45 and 25GbE SFP28, or Fibre Channel ports, the HD6500 is equipped to scale with business demands.
