Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments
RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments. Windows ODX support speeds up data manipulation as the data transfer is offloaded. iSCSI also lets SMB users consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.
Unified storage system
RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs 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). RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs 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.
Protection by LUN backup, snapshot, and clone
RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs enhances the ease of moving and copying data in a virtualized environment with the features - LUN Backup, LUN Snapshot, and LUN Clone. RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs offers iSCSI LUN backup at storage level without extra charge. Synology LUN Clone and LUN Snapshot only take up 1/1000 of the original size which highly optimizes 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.
Synology CMS (Central Management System)
For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all of them from a single point of entry. Through a simple interface, you can obtain a clear overview on resource consumption and logs, helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS can do much more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without extra configuration.
Increase business productivity with cloud solutions
With comprehensive cloud solutions, RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs lets you create your own cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices with the benefit of better privacy for important data.

With mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprise, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can customize synchronization rules, such as avoiding syncing large files to optimize bandwidth usage.
Ensuring business continuity
Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs supports Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former always mirrored to the latter. The Heartbeat mechanism detects regular "heartbeats" between the two servers. If the main server encounters unexpected downtime, the passive server immediately takes over. With multiple LAN ports, RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure.
Secure your data
RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs provides share-level AES 256-bit encryption to block off unauthorized access attempts. Once you create and encrypt a shared folder, people without the encryption key will not be able to use the encrypted data even if they remove the hard drives from your RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs and mount it on their device. 2-Step verification gives an extra layer of protection as 6-digit one-time code sending to your mobile device is required for login. In addition, RS3614xs/?RS3614RPxs provides other security add-ons, such as IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention. These enhancements ensures a secure DSM environment.
