Synology® Launches RackStation RS3413xs+

Where NAS Server Performance and Reliability Are Escalated

Taipei, Taiwan—November 6, 2012—Synology® Inc. today launched RS3413xs+, the first XS+ series NAS server that boasts superior performance of 400,000+ read IOPS and high availability to provide a rigorous foundation for the mission-critical tasks of large-scale businesses.

Equipped with Xeon® Quad Core 3.3 GHz CPU and dual 10GbE bandwidth capability, the RS3413xs+ is capable of delivering 2,000+ MB/s read throughput under RAID 5 configuration with link aggregation. The combination of SSD cache technology and SATA drives boosts throughput efficiently while minimizing cost per gigabyte. Besides, encryption acceleration with AES New Instructions ensures its performance stays uncompromised.

While delivering superior throughput, the RS3413xs+ attains high availability with wide-ranging redundancy features. Forthcoming Synology High Availability ensures seamless transition between cluster servers in the event of system failure. Redundant power supplies and system fans, plus multiple network ports with failover support, assure continual service uptime. Passive cooling technology on the CPU also eliminates a single point of failure. In addition, 8 GB ECC RAM expandable to 32 GB detects and corrects errors during data transmission to ensure accuracy and exceptional performance.

Purpose built for managing big data, the RS3413xs+ can accept two RX1211/RX1211RP expansion units to seamlessly scale up to 136 TB. The RS3413xs+ makes for an excellent addition to virtualized environments by supporting Microsoft® Windows Server 2012 with Hyper-V, VMware® vSphere 5 VAAI integration, as well as Citrix® XenServer.

“RS3413xs+ provides the performance, reliability, scalability, comprehensive virtualization support and enterprise features that large-scale businesses demand, at an affordable cost, making itself a cut above the rest,” Wayne An, product manager of Synology Inc.

RS3413xs+ runs DiskStation Manager (DSM) 4.1, the operating system of every Synology DiskStation and RackStation. DSM 4.1 provides rich features to boost productivity and simplify tasks, all on a sleek interface optimized for multitasking. Synology has received numerous media accolades. RS3412(RP)xs received “Recommended” award from Noticias3D.com and won “NVR Excellent” award at Secutech Exhibition.
