Synology Adds RS3614xs+ to Its Existing XS+ Series of RackStations
Synology has launched the RS3614xs+, the latest of the XS+ line. Small businesses can now take advantage of performance, scalability, and the virtual storage options of: VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V, all while offering general-purpose storage that businesses need.
The latest XS+ RackStation accommodates 12-bays natively, with the ability to expand up to 36-bays when paired with two RX1214(RP) expansion modules. The combined solution can mount up to 144TB of raw capacity. Additionally, Synology's new optional tool-less rail kits, the RKS1314, makes installation for the XS+ fast and easy.
The XS+ includes a 6GBps SATA3 interface. With dual Gen3 x8 PCIe slots the RS3614xs+ can now support up to two 10GbE NICs – in addition to its four native gigabit Ethernet ports. With both PCIe ports populated, throughput can exceed 3,200MB/s; and with solid-state storage, benchmarks can reach up to 620,000 IOPS, for network environments that need raw performance. For those who need SAS, Synology does provide a SAS solution in their flagship RS10613xs+.
