Storage for Virtualization

Storage for Virtualization

Accelerate your virtual workloads with Synology’s all-flash and hybrid-flash storage – seamlessly integrated with mainstream platforms, easy to manage, highly scalable, and providing advanced data protection services at no additional cost.

Built for your SAN storage needs

Enhanced manageability for VMware/Windows

With the plugins and packages Synology has developed for VMware and Windows, administrators are capable of managing their virtual environments efficiently.

VMware/Windows

Synology Storage Console

Manage multiple Synology NAS/IP SAN from VMware or Windows and speed up deployment with the Synology Storage Console plugins. Learn more.

VMware

Support for VMware Site Recovery Manager

VMware Site Recovery Manager allows users to enable disaster recovery directly via VMware vCenter Server, simplifying complicated configurations and optimizing the process.

Windows

Synology SMI-S Provider for SCVMM

The optimization with Microsoft's System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) allows an IT administrator to manage multiple Synology NAS servers as storage nodes via SCVMM's centralized user interface.

Storage protocols for deployment flexibility

Support for both iSCSI and NFS ensures that administrators can always go for the best protocol for different use cases, and leverage platform- or protocol-specific features to facilitate storage operations.

  iSCSI NFS
Availability/load balancing MPIO NFS multipathing (NFS 4.1)
VMware VAAI 3
  • Faster VM performance is achieved by offloading cycles from ESXi to the storage array.
  • More effective utilization of storage arrays delivered by virtual machines with VAAI support.
  • Better flexibility in deploying and migrating VMs. Higher storage performance and efficiency with VMFS-5 file system.
  • Smoother access and management with load balancing automation in Storage vMotion.
  • Atomic test/set
  • Full copy
  • Block zero
  • Thin provisioning
  • UNMAP
(Built into ESXi)
  • Full copy (only with cold migration—not with VMware vSphere Storage vMotion)
  • Preallocated space (WRITE_ZEROs)
  • Cloned offload using native snapshots
(Plug-in required)
Windows ODX 3
By leveraging ODX, the speed for data manipulation increases dramatically. Since the data transfer is offloaded, the CPU usage of the host server and the network bandwidth utilization shrink to minimum values, which allows the server to handle more important tasks.
