A new standard in performance
Powered by a 6-core processor, RS3617xs+ delivers blazing performance with over 4,937 MB/s sequential throughput and 556,727 IOPS under a RAID 5 configuration1 with 10GbE Link Aggregation. Equipped with 8GB DDR4 ECC RAM (upgradeable to 64GB), RS3617xs+ ensures data accuracy when handling high-value data and mission-critical tasks across large-scale businesses.
SSD cache technology
RS3617xs+ enables the combination of hard drives and read/write-optimized SSD cache, boosting throughput efficiently while minimizing cost per gigabyte. With full SSD cache reading and writing support, RS3617xs+ offers a significant reduction in I/O latency without crippling your budget. With only a small upfront investment, businesses can benefit from significant server performance enhancement.
10GbE network capability
RS3617xs+ comes with two 10GBase-T and four Gigabit ports, and additionally allows for the installation of up to two 10GbE Network Interface Cards (NIC), maximizing bandwidth and meeting high performance requirements for data-intensive applications.
Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments
RS3617xs+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, Hyper-V, and OpenStack Cinder. 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. With OpenStack Cinder support, RS3617xs+ can be used as a block-based storage component for servers complying with the Cinder API.
Ensuring business continuity & reliability
Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. RS3617xs+ offers Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former always mirrored to the latter. Shared Folder Sync can replicate data in real-time to another Synology NAS at a remote location, giving your business the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for prompt disaster recovery. With multiple LAN ports, RS3617xs+ also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure
Scale on demand
As your data storage needs grow, RS3617xs+ can be connected to one or two dedicated RX1217/RX1217RP2 expansion units, allowing you to expand storage capacity up to 36 drives3 without disrupting service. The high-bandwidth cable ensures speedy data transmission between the main server and expansion unit.
Reliable redundancy mechanisms
RS3617xs+ comes with comprehensive redundancy mechanisms to ensure business continuity. Built-in LAN ports with failover provides reliable redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure. The high reliability system design including fanless CPU heat-sink and passive cooling technologies prevents single point of failure.
Protection with LUN backup, snapshot, and clone
RS3617xs+ enhances the ease of moving and copying data in a virtualized environment with the features LUN Snapshot, clone, and replication. Synology’s LUN Clone and LUN Snapshot only consume 1/1000 of the original size highly optimizing storage usage. In addition, Synology's LUN Snapshot lets you create up 256 snapshots per LUN using point-in-time technology without having any impact on system performance. With better support to servers under VMware vSphere or Windows environment, IT managers can expect guaranteed VM status and data consistency through application-consistent snapshots
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, RS3617xs+ ensures information is stored with a high level of data integrity, while providing flexible and efficient data protection tools. See the white paper for more technical details regarding Btrfs and data protection.

Unified storage system
RS3617xs+ 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). RS3617xs+ 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. Learn more
Enhanced encryption performance
RS3617xs+ is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads encryption calculation tasks from the main CPU, thus allowing it to perform other important tasks. In addition, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) on shared folders with hardware acceleration ensures security without compromising access performance, providing over 3,665 MB/s in reading.
