Press release date: November 13, 2012
BELLEVUE, Wash. - Synology America Corp. today announced the launch of the RS10613xs+, following the recent release of the RS3413xs+. The new 10-bay 2U RackStation is Synology's most advanced hardware to date. The RS10613xs+ is built with SME in mind, providing fast and scalable storage at a price point that makes it peerless; the ideal storage solution between NAS and SAN.
Taking advantage of up to 8 of the new RX1213sas expansion modules, it can quickly scale to up to 106 SAS drives (up to 424TB raw storage), allowing businesses to expand their capacity on the fly.
The new addition to the XS+ series is optimized for virtual network storage, supporting both iSCSI and NFS. It is certified for VMware® vSphere™ 5, Microsoft® Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V™, and Citrix® XenServer™. It offers VAAI integration, including Hardware Assisted Locking (ATS), Block Zero, Full Copying, and Thin Provisioning.
The RS10613xs+ includes support for SSD caching for improved speeds while still allowing for taking advantage of the storage capacity of mechanical drives. It also comes with 8GB ECC RAM (expandable to 32GB) for improved data reliability. It supports Synology's upcoming High Availability package to minimize downtime. The High Availability package will allow clustering of RackStations with automatic failover to maximize uptime.
"This release marks a major milestone for us," said Franklin Hua, Technical Marketing Manager at Synology America Corp. "This new flagship sets the bar even higher for value. It is ideal for those that need more storage and performance than offered by the standard NAS, but want less hassle and expense than a SAN. Additionally, Synology America is launching several programs in the United States to make the decision to switch to Synology even easier."
Synology America will begin offering an optional extended warranty program bringing the warranty up to 5 years. The extended warranty will include expedited warranty service and next business day shipping of replacement servers and parts.
