Ultra-High performance NAS Server Scales up to 136TB for Large Scale Business
Synology RackStation RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs offers ultra-high performance, scalable and full-featured network attached storage solution for large scale businesses that require an efficient way to centralize data protection, simplify data management, deploy virtualization solutions, and rapidly expand storage capacity with minimal time spent on setup and management. Synology RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs is backed with Synology’s 3-year limited warranty.
With Link Aggregation, Synology RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs delivers the high performance of over 1000 MB/sec throughput and 100,000 IOPS under RAID 5 configuration1. In addition to the default 4 Gigabit ports, dual 10GbE are supported with the add-on PCI Express x8 Gen2 Network Interface Card to maximize the system bandwidth. RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs is able to bring you the ultra-high performance that your data-intensive application demands on the storage system.
High Reliability & Availability
Reliable functioning of commercial systems is of paramount concern to business users that depending on these servers everyday. Synology RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs is now introduced with the fanless CPU heatsink to prevent the single point of failure, with the CPU passive cooling technology RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs achieves the high reliability system design. When system detects fan failure, the built-in redundancy mechanism will spin up the functional fan(s) to properly ventilate the system, and support continuous operations until the replacement fan arrives. Therefore, potential system damages are minimized and system availability is maximized.
The network ports with failover support combining with hot-swappable drives will ensure continual service uptime during drives replacement or unexpected LAN failure. The ECC RAM module on RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs will detect and correct errors that occur during data transmission. Supporting up to 6GB ECC RAM, RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs provides secure data protection and performance to meet the need of large scale businesses for a strong foundation to face mission-critical tasks.
Robust Scalability Up to 136TB
Synology RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs is also designed to grow with your business and provides the ability to seamlessly expand a single volume up to 108TB on the fly, with total storage capacity of 136TB. When the storage capacity of RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs is nearing its limits, it can easily be expanded with Synology RX1211/RX1211RP2. It is connected to RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs via an Infiniband cable that carries 12 Gb/s SATA signal to ensure maximum throughput.
Management of the large storage space on RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs is simple and flexible. Multiple Volumes on RAID allows users to create more than one volume on a RAID structure, providing a flexible and efficient way to manage the storage across all hard drives. When the need for more space arises, the volume could be easily expanded without any service disruption.
Unified Storage and Virtualization Ready
Synology RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs runs on the novel operating system, Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), which integrates file-level and block-level storage in one unified storage system platform providing management simplicity to reduce your total cost of ownership.
Comprehensive network protocol support (CIFS/SMB, AFP and NFS) assures seamless file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux platforms. iSCSI is also supported as the ideal alternative to SAN solution for business.
Affordable and cost-effective iSCSI allows large scale business to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks. With the iSCSI support, RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs provides a seamless storage solution for virtualization servers, such as VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V. RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs is also certified with the latest VMware vSphere® 5, supporting VMFS-5 and extended storage migration capability with better flexibility and higher performance in VMware virtualization platform.
Thin Provisioning is available for file-level iSCSI, enabling administrators to oversubscribe provision and then grow storage space as needed in safety. With Thin Provisioning, users are able to maximize the storage utilization to reduce the total cost of ownership for the storage system.
Full-featured Business Applications
The Synology RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs offers applications and features designed specifically for large scale business. Windows ADS and LDAP integration allows RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs to quickly and easily fit in an existing business network environment without recreating user accounts. Windows ACL support on RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs provides much finer-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing IT staffs to set up privileges to files and folders on RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs through their familiar Windows user interface.
The built-in backup application is provided for backing up data in the RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs to another Synology NAS, expansion unit, any rsync server via an encrypted transmission. It is even possible to back up from RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs to the cloud with the Amazon® S3 support. Shared Folder Sync is also available in DSM for implementing disaster recovery plans. With Shared Folder Sync, RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs is able to replicate data to another DiskStation within the Intranet or across the Internet, helping to reduce the risk of business interruption.
Energy Efficient Design
Synology RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs is designed and developed with energy efficiency in mind. Compared with the average storage server counterparts, RS3412xs/RS3412RPxs consumes a relatively low amount of power and have the hard drives hibernate when not in use.
All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen to continually work to reduce the environmental impact of every product produced.
