Data compression

Data compression

Reduce average storage consumption in shared folders by up to 30%.

Instant SMB/AFP server-side copy

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

Flash volume deduplication

Maximize storage efficiency by eliminating identical data blocks with volume-wide deduplication on all-flash arrays.1


Accelerate data access

Minimize latency and significantly boost random write performance by adding fast and dependable SSD cache to large HDD-based arrays.

Rapid write-back

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.

Drive management the ensures service continuity

Expand whenever

Upgrade the capacity of your Synology NAS with minimal disruptions.

On-demand expansion

Add new drives with just a few clicks and without interrupting your services as your storage requirements grow.

Flexible deployment

Combine drives of different capacities to create arrays that take full advantage of each drive's available storage with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR).2

High-capacity storage

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

Get consistent industry-leading performance with Synology drives engineered to handle intensive 24/7 workloads.

Notes:

  1. 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.
