Accelerate storage management tasks through a centralized interface.
Ensure service continuity with systems designed for dependability.
Reduce cost of ownership with efficient data compression and deduplication.
Scale up your storage capacity without affecting operations.
Actively protect your digital assets against data corruption.
Maintenance made easy
Maximize storage efficiency
Get the most out of your storage with powerful optimization features.
Reduce average storage consumption in shared folders by up to 30%.
Instant SMB/AFP server-side copy
Reference existing data blocks instead of copying them if the source and destination are both on the same Btrfs volume.
Flash volume deduplication
Maximize storage efficiency by eliminating identical data blocks with volume-wide deduplication on all-flash arrays.1
Accelerate data access
Faster data write-back speeds up synchronization from SSD cache to HDD and automatically protects cached data.
Btrfs metadata caching
Store all Btrfs metadata to your SSD cache to speed up response and accessing times for all files.
Store securely, stay compliant
Securing data against theft and loss
Volume encryption and shared folder encryption are both effective methods of maintaining data security with several important differences between them.
Keeping sensitive data out of reach
Encrypt data on specific shared folders or apply volume-wide encryption to all files and LUNs to prevent data leaks resulting from physical theft of hardware.
Secure key management
Encryption Key Vault supports local and KMIP key storage, enabling auto-decryption of encrypted folders or volumes on startup. Admins can adopt different options to balance convenience and threat mitigation.
Add new drives with just a few clicks and without interrupting your services as your storage requirements grow.
Combine drives of different capacities to create arrays that take full advantage of each drive's available storage with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR).2
Optimize your storage for data archives or video management systems (VMS) by creating single volumes that reach up to a Petabyte.3
The best combination
Flash volume deduplication is available on flash-only volumes comprised of compatible Synology SSDs. Synology measured a data reduction ratio of over 3.15:1 based on 10 VMs configured for remote desktop with two operating systems and enterprise applications installed.
Synology Hybrid RAID is not supported across all Synology NAS models and cannot be deployed on expansion units. Please check this page for more details.
Peta volumes will be available later in 2021 on select models.
