I don't often go outside eight bays when reviewing NAS platforms, but the unit I have today was such a tremendous opportunity, I couldn't pass it up. A lot more went into testing this solution since it is an all-flash platform using 10Gbe - and I do need to thank Phison for the drives used to fill this appliance.
Synology's FlashStation FS3017 is purpose built for enterprises to handle I/O intensive and low latency applications while maintaining flexibility utilizing both the SAS and SATA 2.5" form factor. The FS3017 is capable of 90TB raw capacity and performance is near 200,000 random write IOPS. This solution is also my first experience with Synology's RAID F1, an in-house designed RAID mode that allows for a single drive to take much of the parity data load in an all-flash array, allowing for one drive to fail prematurely rather than a large number of drives at once.
To learn more about the FS3017, we dive into the specifications. Starting things off, we have dual Intel Xeon E5-2620v3 CPUs giving this platform 12 cores and 24 threads at 2.4GHz. This is paired with 64GB of DDR4 ECC RDIMM and can be expanded to 512GB. Moving down the line, we have 24 bays supporting SATA and SAS 2.5" HDDs and SSDs. Maximum volume size sits at 200TB for RAID 5 and 6 and 108TB for the rest.
We also find two USB 3.0 ports on this unit along with two 10Gbe RJ-45 ports. System cooling is provided via the four 80mm hot-swappable fans and power by two 800w supplies for redundancy.
The MSRP of the Synology FS3017 comes in at $9999.99 with a five-year warranty.
