Rethink Storage with Enterprise Storage Features for Small to Medium Businesses
BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Synology America Corp. is proud to announce the latest in its XS series, with the powerful and extensible RackStation RS3614xs. The new XS model runs off of Synology's award-winning DiskStation Manager OS (DSM 5.0). The RS3614xs and DSM 5.0 provide enterprise storage features for small to medium sized businesses, at an affordable cost.
Built-in redundancy to minimize business down time: The RS3614xs was designed to keep businesses in motion. It's built with a mixture of passive and active cooling. Redundant replaceable fans speed up in the event of failure. The redundant power variant, the RS3614RPxs features dual hot-swappable power supplies to withstand failure of a power-circuit or power supply.
Four gigabit NICs comprise the default network configuration for LAG, Load Balancing, and Failover. Throughput can be enhanced with two PCIe Gen3 x8 expansion slots; making it possible to add dual 10Gb ethernet cards to support a total of 4x10GbE. Additionally, the DSM offers high availability, which helps to protect against downtime with active/passive server clustering.
Proven Track Record for Reliability, More Peace of Mind. PCMag has consistently awarded Synology business products to be among the most reliable. In an effort to continually exceed the needs of customers, Synology is providing a new limited 5 year warranty to all current XS and XS+ series RackStations, helping to preserve the investment for the long term and offer greater peace of mind.
Scalability delivered for growing businesses: The RS3614xs is designed to expand along with the needs of growing companies. An additional 24 bays can be added with two RX1214(RP) expansion chassis. Together the RS3614(RP)xs can accommodate a total of 36-bays, adding up to 216TBs of raw storage – using 6TB drives.
Virtual Storage Support to Increase Efficiency: The RS3614xs is certified for VMware® vShpere 5, VAAI, Citrix® XenServer, and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2. Certification enables functions that offload specific storage operations from the primary server. It primes computation power for more efficient performance in virtualization environments.
Collaborate securely in the Private Cloud: For businesses that need to share pools of data for collaborative work, DSM has introduced peerless bidirectional sync. Files, file-types, and selected folders can be synced with another Disk or RackStation – wherever they may be located – without intermediating hardware. Businesses can share common assets easily with Cloud Station, which is included within the DSM package.
"The RS3614xs is a fantastic value for growing businesses that need speed and expandability," said Thadd Weil, public relations specialist with Synology America. "This is a high-performance robust storage, loaded with utility that almost any SMB can find uniquely accessible; and with the addition of our new five year standard warranty, we back it up even further; helping users to invest securely at no additional cost."
