Synology today announced the availability of the FS3410, the latest in the FlashStation family of all-flash network attached storage servers. As a mid-range 3000-series unit, the FS3410 is a cost-effective powerhouse with excellent out-of-the-box networking capabilities. Its high throughput makes it ideal for use cases that demand high-performance storage, including VM storage and protection, file syncing, and business application hosting.
“The FS3410 fulfills the need for faster and more responsive storage solutions in scenarios such as high-resolution video post-production, building information modeling (BIM), geographic information systems (GIS), and large-scale CAD projects,” said Julien Chen, Product Manager at Synology. “Its all-flash performance makes it excellent for hosting virtual machine storage and productivity applications such as MailPlus, our secure and reliable private email server.”
Designed for demanding environments
Powered by the versatile Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system, the 2U 24-bay FS3410 is a dual-purpose NAS and SAN solution driven by an Intel Xeon octa-core processor with optional support for Fibre Channel and faster 40/56GbE networking. Its strong performance with over 356,000/129,000 4K random read/write IOPS makes it suitable in any file server, block storage, or light application server role that requires high availability, reliability, and leading-edge storage technology.
Synology’s enterprise storage lineup features market-proven hardware designs and are built for maximum reliability. Advanced storage drive monitoring enables administrators to receive better and more accurate health predictions, while critical drive firmware updates are automatically taken care of seamlessly.
Fast and dependable VM storage
The FS3410 is fully certified to support VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, OpenStack Cinder, and also has support for Kubernetes CSI. Advanced storage management and LUN functionality with VMware VAAI and Windows ODX support accelerates VM performance and offers lightning-fast snapshot creation, recovery, and cloning. Volume-level deduplication ensures highly efficient, up to 3.15:1 storage space reduction.
Maximum service availability can be achieved through Synology High Availability, where the FS3410 can be paired with another identical unit to create a high-availability cluster. The active/passive architecture ensures automatic service transition within minutes in case of planned or unexpected downtime on one unit.
VM and infrastructure protection
Synology FlashStations include comprehensive applications to back up and protect VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines. Users can easily protect their existing infrastructure through Active Backup for Business and rapidly restore VMs to different systems or even to the FS3410 itself.
Synology FS3410 is now available through Synology’s solution partners and channel networks.
