    Ultra-High Performance

    With Link Aggregation, Synology DS3612xs delivers the high performance of over 1000 MB/sec throughput and 100,000 IOPS under RAID 5 configuration1. In addition to the default 4 Gigabit ports, dual 10GbE are supported with the add-on PCI Express x8 Gen2 Network Interface Card to maximize the system bandwidth. DS3612xs is able to bring you the ultra-high performance that your data-intensive application demands on the storage system.

    High Reliability & Availability

    Reliable functioning of commercial systems is of paramount concern to business users that depending on these servers everyday. Synology DS3612xs is now introduced with the fanless CPU heatsink to prevent the single point of failure, with the CPU passive cooling technology DS3612xs achieves the high reliability system design. When system detects fan failure, the built-in redundancy mechanism will spin up the functional fan(s) to properly ventilate the system, and support continuous operations until the replacement fan arrives. Therefore, potential system damages are minimized and system availability is maximized.

    The network ports with failover support combining with hot-swappable drives will ensure continual service uptime during drives replacement or unexpected LAN failure. The ECC RAM module on DS3612xs will detect and correct errors that occur during data transmission. Supporting up to 6GB ECC RAM, DS3612xs provides secure data protection and performance to meet the need of large scale businesses for a strong foundation to face mission-critical tasks.

    Robust Scalability Up to 144TB

    Synology DS3612xs is also designed to grow with your business and provides the ability to seamlessly expand a single volume up to 108TB on the fly, with total storage capacity of 144TB. When the storage capacity of DS3612xs is nearing its limits, it can easily be expanded with Synology DX12112. It is connected to DS3612xs via an Infiniband cable that carries 12 Gb/s SATA signal to ensure maximum throughput.

    Management of the large storage space on DS3612xs is simple and flexible. Multiple Volumes on RAID allows users to create more than one volume on a RAID structure, providing a flexible and efficient way to manage the storage across all hard drives. When the need for more space arises, the volume could be easily expanded without any service disruption.

    Unified Storage and Virtualization Ready

    Synology DS3612xs runs on the novel operating system, Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), which integrates file-level and block-level storage in one unified storage system platform providing management simplicity to reduce your total cost of ownership.

    Comprehensive network protocol support (CIFS/SMB, AFP and NFS) assures seamless file sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux platforms. iSCSI is also supported as the ideal alternative to SAN solution for business.

    Affordable and cost-effective iSCSI allows large scale business to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks. With the iSCSI support, DS3612xs provides a seamless storage solution for virtualization servers, such as VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V. DS3612xs is also certified with the latest VMware vSphere® 5, supporting VMFS-5 and extended storage migration capability with better flexibility and higher performance in VMware virtualization platform.

    Thin Provisioning is available for file-level iSCSI, enabling administrators to oversubscribe provision and then grow storage space as needed in safety. With Thin Provisioning, users are able to maximize the storage utilization to reduce the total cost of ownership for the storage system.

    Full-featured Business Applications

    The Synology DS3612xs offers applications and features designed specifically for large scale business.
