RackStation RC18015xs+Uncompromising reliability, unyielding data protection
Featuring a high-availability design, next-generation snapshot technology, and massive scalability up to 180 drives, RC18015xs+ and RXD1215sas deliver the secure, reliable, and superior performance storage solution for enterprises seeking business continuity and point-in-time data recovery.
High-availability cluster design
RC18015xs+ and RXD1215sas are specifically designed to work together as a high-availability cluster — requiring two RC18015xs+ and at least one RXD1215sas expansion unit. By combining the two computing servers and multiple storage units into a single high-availability cluster, RC18015xs+ and RXD1215sas deliver unyielding reliability and data availability. With the active/passive structure, services are automatically switched over to one server if the other unexpectedly goes offline, helping your business avoid costly downtime.1
Blazing fast performance and throughput
RC18015xs+ delivers superior performance of over 2,270 MB/s throughput and 355,400 IOPS when using dual 10GbE connections bonded with Link Aggregation4. Equipped with 8GB ECC RAM (upgradeable up to 32GB), the RC18015xs+ ensures enterprise-level data accuracy and speed for your mission critical tasks.
Hardware redundancy enhances system uptime
In addition to the active/passive architecture, RC18015xs+ is equipped with redundant hardware components, such as power supply units, internal system fans, and LAN ports. In the event of component failure, the system continues operating normally while replacement parts are obtained and installed.
Ready for the 10GbE generation
In addition to the default four Gigabit Ethernet ports (plus one dedicated port for the Heartbeat), RC18015xs+ comes with one PCI Express 3.0 x8 slot (running at x8 mode), accommodating installation of one 10GbE network interface card (NIC) for maximized bandwidth.
Next-generation data protection and integrity
When dealing with large-scale data storage, businesses require a solution that offers reliable backup and prevents file corruption. With support for the next-generation Btrfs file system, RC18015xs+ ensures information is stored with a high level of data integrity, while providing flexible and efficient data protection tools.
Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments
RC18015xs+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® & VAAI integration, RC18015xs+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments. Windows ODX support speeds up data manipulation as the data transfer is offloaded. iSCSI also lets SMB users consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.
Unified storage system
RC18015xs+ enables businesses to cost-effectively manage multi-protocol data by integrating file-level (NAS) and block-level (SAN) storage into one unified storage system. Files can be shared across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® platforms seamlessly with comprehensive network protocol support (CIFS/SMB, AFP, and NFS). RC18015xs+ provides a cost-effective iSCSI solution, allowing large scale businesses to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays. With thin provisioning available for file-level iSCSI LUN, you can maximize storage utilization by oversubscribing provisions and grow storage space as needed.
Synology CMS (Central Management System)
For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all of them from a single point of entry. Through a simple interface, you can obtain a clear overview on resource consumption and logs, helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS can do much more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without extra configuration
Increase business productivity with cloud solutions
With comprehensive cloud solutions, RC18015xs+ lets you create your own private cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which keeps up to 32 historical versions, allowing you to restore a file back to previous version or recover deleted files. With the mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprises, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can handpick individual folders that they want to sync to different devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size. Folders synced by Cloud Station can be encrypted on DSM
