Synology Launches XS Series NAS Servers
Delivering highly scalable storage capacity and performance, the most competitive cost/capacity ratio, virtualization ready, and powered by Synology DiskStation Manager 3.1
TAIPEI, Taiwan - Synology is proud to launch its new xs series NAS servers, including 12-bay DiskStation DS3611xs and 10-bay RackStation RS3411xs/RS3411RPxs for large scale businesses.
Compared with other head-on NAS servers, Synology xs series offers the most competitive cost/capacity ratio with USD0.25 per GB when paired with enterprise-class hard drives.
Equipped with an Intel Core processor, Synology xs series NAS servers deliver data throughput in excess of 1,000 MB/sec and 100,000 IOPS with link aggregation enabled.
Redundant power supplies are available on the RS3411RPxs and its expansion unit, RX1211RP, to ensure continual service uptime. System reliability is further reinforced by failover support on all network ports, hot-swappable drives design and expandable ECC RAM module. Powerful and reliable as the xs series NAS servers are, they consume up to 128W in operation and 78W when hibernated. Once Deep Sleep mode is enabled, the expansion units, including DX1211 and RX1211/RX1211RP, reduce up to 95% of power consumption.
With comprehensive iSCSI support, the xs series NAS servers seamlessly integrate with major virtualization servers, including VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer, and Microsoft Hyper-V. In addition, the Windows ADS and ACL support allows them to fit in a business environment easily and quickly.
Synology xs series NAS servers are powered by DiskStation Manager 3.1 (DSM 3.1), the operating system of every Synology DiskStation. DSM 3.1 makes complicated things simple and hard things possible by providing versatile features on a snappy, intuitive, and multitasking web-based user interface. Numerous notable media all over the world have praised or even awarded DSM, among which include the US Maximum PC Magazine, which named DSM as the “Future Tech Winner—Best Storage Technology of CES 2011.”
