FlashStation FS3017

Elevate your business to the next level

Enterprises are now challenged to handle I/O-intensive and latency sensitive applications, whether it’s managing large raw files, virtual machines or databases, FS3017 is an easy to maintain, affordable, yet powerful all-flash NAS solution for businesses.

FS3017

Cost-effective flexibility

Due to vendor lock-in, all-flash storage is notoriously expensive, but FS3017 accepts both high-end SAS SSD and the more mainstream SATA SSD. Raw capacity of FS3017 reaches 90TB1.

No more bottlenecks

High-latency and low random IOPS is the bane of a regular storage array. Dealing with an unresponsive infrastructure is both costly and frustrating. FS3017 delivers a massive iSCSI 200,000 4K random write IOPS, thanks to its dual 6-core Xeon processor and 64GB of DDR4 ECC memory with NUMA integration. Upgrade the RAM up to 512GB for even more powerful performance.

Optimized for flash storage resilience

Due to the peculiarities of SSD and RAID technology, a common challenge lies in how to prevent all of the drives from failing at the same time because of the evenly distributed workload. RAID F1 alleviates this problem with a specially designed algorithm to unevenly distribute workload to drives, thus enhancing the resilience of the storage pool and ensuring your data remains safe.

See the white paper for more technical details regarding RAID F1

Compared with traditional RAID, RAID F1 distributes uneven workload to SSDs to prevent all drives from wearing out simultaneously.

Future-proof networking

FS3017 is equipped with two 10GBase-T ports. If you need more horsepower, FS3017 also has two PCIe slots available for adding more  Ethernet controllers. Choose between 10GbE, 25GbE, and 40GbE to unlock FS3017’s full potential. In addition, you can leverage iSCSI over RDMA technology to enhance iSCSI performance by up to 80% with an optional purchase of supported NIC on FS3017.

Data Protection & Disaster Recovery

The built-in Snapshot Replication application reproduces 65,000 backup copies to offsite servers, bringing near-instantaneous data protection and ensuring data in shared folders or virtual machines in iSCSI LUNs remain available in the event of disaster.

See the white paper for more technical details regarding Btrfs and data protection.

Supports VMware vSphere, Windows Server, Citrix XenServer, and OpenStack Cinder

Synology iSCSI storage fully supports all major virtualization solutions, from VMware, Windows, Citrix, to OpenStack Cinder. Simplify your recovery process with VMware Site Recovery Manager, and initiate disaster recoveries directly via VMware vCenter Server.

5 year warranty

Synology FS3017 is backed with Synology's 5-year limited warranty. With technical support and hardware replacement service, the 5-year warranty maximizes your enterprises' return on investment. For the entire duration, you will enjoy technical support via email and telephone.

Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager

Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, browser-based operating system running on every DiskStation and RackStation, which makes managing your Synology NAS a breeze. Featuring an intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data smarter and simpler. Synology's Package Center lets you download and install useful add-on packages designed specifically for individual or business needs, meaning you can enjoy more entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.Learn more

Increase business productivity with cloud solutions

With comprehensive cloud solutions, FS3017 lets you create your own private cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which keeps up to 32 historical versions, allowing you to restore a file back to previous version or recover deleted files. With the mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprises, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can handpick individual folders that they want to sync to different devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size. Folders synced by Cloud Station can be encrypted on DSM — no one will be able to access its content without your private key. Learn more

Ensuring business continuity & reliability

Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. FS3017 offers Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former always mirrored to the latter. Shared Folder Sync can replicate data in real-time to another Synology NAS at a remote location, giving your business the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for prompt disaster recovery. With multiple LAN ports, FS3017 also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure. Learn more
