Btrfs: Next Generation Storage Efficiency
RS3617xs integrates the Btrfs file system, bringing the most advanced storage technologies to meet the management needs of modern large scale businesses:
• Flexible Shared Folder/User Quota System provides comprehensive quota control on all user accounts and shared folders.
• Advanced snapshot technology with customizable backup schedule allows up to 1,024 copies of shared folder backups and 65,000 copies of system-wise snapshots without occupying huge storage capacity and system resources.
• File or folder level data restoration brings huge convenience and saves time for users who wish to restore only the specific single file or folder.
• Cloud Station with file versioning reduces down to half of storage consumption when compared with ext4 file system.
RS3617xs provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere 6 and VAAI integration certified, RS3617xs helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power for unparalleled performance and efficiency in VMware environments. As the centralized storage of a virtual environment, RS3617xs enables virtual machine migration, allowing movement from server to server whilst eliminating service downtime and disruption to user. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) and Synology Advanced LUN support greatly improves the efficiency on massive data transfer and migration.

Comprehensive Business Applications
Powered by the innovative Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), RS3617xs comes fully equipped with applications and features designed specifically for large-scale business:
• Easy integration with existing business network environments through Windows® AD and LDAP directory services without recreating user accounts.
• Windows ACL support provides fine-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing RS3617xs to fit seamlessly into current infrastructure.
• Built-in backup applications protect information assets by regularly backing up files and iSCSI LUNs locally and remotely.
• Continuous data protection with snapshots of shared folders allows restoration of previous versions when the need arises.
• Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) on shared folders with hardware acceleration ensures security without compromising access performance, providing over 2,612MB/s in reading.
RS3617xs is designed to grow with businesses and provides the ability to seamlessly expand a single volume up to 200TB (with 32GB RAM installed) / 108TB on the fly.
RS3617xs supports up to 36 HDDs or SSDs for flexible capacity and balanced performance to meet the needs of varying applications and processes. When the storage capacity of RS3617xs nears it limit, expansion is easily accomplished with up to two Synology Expansion Unit RX1217/RX1217RP via specially-designed connection cables to maximize data transmission throughput between main server and expansion units.
Management of the large storage space on RS3617xs 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.
Reliability, Availability & Disaster Recovery
System reliability is of paramount importance to businesses which depend upon their commercial servers every day. RS3617xs responds to these concerns with wide-ranging availability and redundancy features:
• Synology High Availability ensures seamless transition between clustered servers in the event of server failure with minimal impact to applications.
• Shared Folder Sync replicates data in real-time to another Synology NAS at a remote location for prompt disaster recovery to meet the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of your business
• Redundant system fans and network ports with failover support ensure continual service uptime.
• High reliability system design including fan-less CPU heat-sink and passive cooling technology prevents single point of failure.
• ECC RAM modules detect and correct errors during data transmission.
• Tool-free system fan design allows hot swap and easy exchange of malfunctioned system fans.
