Synology launched the new DiskStation DS2015xs and DS3615xs. Coming with built-in 10GbE SFP+ LAN ports, the 8-bay DS2015xs marks the advance of 10GbE solutions into small and medium-sized businesses. For large-scale businesses, the 12-bay DS3615xs offers the superior throughput and accuracy required for centralized data storage, management, and virtualization in distributed offices.
"Highly efficiency-minded companies are reaching beyond their limits every day, and their productivity simply should not be constrained by hardware infrastructure," said Michael Wang, product manager at Synology Inc. "We believe both SMBs and large businesses deserve storage solutions that can prepare them for a much more challenging - but rewarding - future, while carefully considering their different needs. That is how we designed DS2015xs and DS3615xs."
Powered by an all-new ARM Cortex-A15 quad-core CPU and a RAM module expandable to 8GB, DS2015xs delivers over 2,090 MB/s throughput at a cost little more than standard NAS storage for SMBs. Its two built-in 10GbE SFP+ ports as well as two 1GbE RJ-45 ports not only pave the way for businesses to transition to a 10GbE environment, but also provide support for Link Aggregation and failover. All these features, combined with the native SATA III 6Gb/s support, make DS2015xs capable of handling intensive multitasking with the kind of performance that used to be the privilege of costly enterprise-grade servers.
DS3615xs is equipped with a 3.4 GHz dual-core x64 processor with an AES-NI hardware encryption engine, giving it exceptional throughput at over 2,350 MB/s and over 268,060 IOPS with a 10GbE NIC installed. For mission-critical applications where data accuracy is paramount, the expandable ECC RAM module (up to 32GB) ensures data is correctly read and written with ultra-high performance. Through the four Gigabit LAN ports along with a PCIe 3.0 slot, DS3615xs also marks its place in the high-speed data transfer era, and is particularly suitable for virtualization deployment. In addition, backed by read/write-optimized SSD cache and SATA III support, the model is designed to unleash the full potential of blazing fast SSDs while minimizing the cost per gigabyte.
Both DS2015xs and DS3615xs can be scaled up to a raw capacity of 120 and 216 TB respectively by connecting DX1215 expansion units. Taking advantage of their multiple LAN ports, the support of Synology High Availability also ensures the highest uptime and resiliency. Certified by VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V, both NAS servers can be seamlessly integrated into a company's virtualization environment and act as a powerful central storage.
Synology DiskStation DS3615xs provides the reliable and ultra-high performance network attached storage solution for large scale businesses that require an efficient way to centralize data protection, simplify data management, deploy virtualization solutions, and rapidly expand storage capacity with minimal time spent on setup and maintenance.
DS3615xs delivers ultra-high performance at 2,352 MB/s sequential read throughput and 268,064 sequential read IOPS under RAID 5 configuration with VLAN. Through advanced flash technology, the combination of hard drives and read/write - optimized SSD cache boosts throughput efficiently while minimizing cost per gigabyte. In addition, DS3615xs comes with native SATA III 6Gb/s support that unleashes the full potential of blazing fast SSDs, ensuring the optimum data process under heavy system loading. In addition to default 4 Gigabit ports, DS3615xs comes with one PCIe 3.0 x8 slot, allowing installation of one high performance Network Interface Card (NIC) for maximized bandwidth, bringing you the superior performance that data-intensive applications demand of your storage system. Equipped with 4GB RAM and up to 32GB ECC RAM expansion support, DS3615xs ensures data accuracy as well as ultra-high performance to provide a rigorous foundation for the mission-critical tasks of your business.

When the storage capacity of DS3615xs nears its limit, expansion is easily accomplished with Synology DX1215 via specially-designed connection cables to maximize data transmission throughput between main server and expansion units. With two DX1215 attached, DS3615xs supports up to 36 drives and 216TB of raw capacity and provides the ability to seamlessly expand a single volume up to 108TB on the fly. Management of the large storage space on DS3615xs 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.
DS2015xs and DS3615xs are backed by a limited 5-year warranty, and on top of it, the next-day Synology Replacement Service in selected countries.
