FlashStation FS3017

Elevate your business to the next level

Astonishing performance, no more bottlenecks

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.

Download Datasheet

CPU

Dual Intel® Xeon® 6-core with NUMA

Memory

Up to 512 GB DDR4 ECC RDIMM

Network

iSCSI Extensions for RDMA via optional NICs1

High Performance

Over 200,000 4K random write IOPS

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 90TB2.

5-year warranty

As we're committed to improving product innovation and quality, Synology guarantees a robust and reliable data management experience with a 5-year limited warranty, providing responsive technical support and hardware replacement services to maximize your return on investment.

RAID F1

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, 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.

Fully certified storage virtualization solutions

Synology iSCSI storage fully supports most virtualization solutions to enhance work efficiency with easy management interface. VMware vSphere 6 and VAAI integration helps offload storage operations and optimizes computation efficiency. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) speeds up data transfer and migration rate. OpenStack Cinder support turns your Synology NAS into a block-based storage component.
