Product Description

Synology RackStation RC18015xs+ Rackmount 1U Enclosure

Uncompromising reliability, unyielding data protection
Featuring a high-availability design, next-generation snapshot technology, and massive scalability up to 180 drives, RC18015xs+ and RXD1215sas deliver the secure, reliable, and superior performance storage solution for enterprises seeking business continuity and point-in-time data recovery.

High-availability cluster design
By combining two computing servers and multiple storage units into a single high-availability cluster, RC18015xs+ and RXD1215sas deliver unyielding reliability and data availability. With the active/passive structure, services are automatically switched over to one server if the other unexpectedly goes offline, helping your business avoid costly downtime.1

Massive scalability up to 180 drives
Up to fifteen RXD1215sas can be connected to the dual RC18015xs+ computing nodes2, accommodating massive scalability up to 180 drives and maximum raw storage beyond 1PB3. The shared storage architecture eliminates the need for data replication over the network, in addition to drastically reducing deployment costs.

Blazing fast performance and throughput
RC18015xs+ delivers superior performance of over 2,270 MB/s throughput and 355,400 IOPS when using dual 10GbE connections bonded with Link Aggregation4. Equipped with 8GB ECC RAM (upgradeable up to 32GB), the RC18015xs+ ensures enterprise-level data accuracy and speed for your mission critical tasks.

Hardware redundancy enhances system uptime
In addition to the active/passive architecture, RC18015xs+ and RXD1215sas are equipped with redundant hardware components, such as power supply units, SAS modules, SAS connection cables, system fans, LAN ports, and even the Heartbeat connection. In the event of component failure, the system continues operating normally while replacement parts are obtained and installed.

Ready for the 10GbE generation
In addition to the default four Gigabit Ethernet ports (plus one dedicated port for the Heartbeat), RC18015xs+ comes with one PCI Express 3.0 x8 slot (running at x8 mode), accommodating installation of one 10GbE network interface card (NIC) for maximized bandwidth.

5 year warranty
Synology RC18015xs+ is backed with Synology's 5-year limited warranty. With technical support and hardware replacement service, the five-year warranty maximizes your enterprises' return on investment. For the entire duration, you will enjoy technical support via e-mail and telephone.

Synology Replacement Service (SRS)
The Synology Replacement Service (SRS)* provides free shipment of replacement units as early as the next business day. SRS can expedite the process of replacing defective products and minimize service downtime.
* Available in selected countries.

Next generation data protection
As the first server in its class to feature the Btrfs file system, RC18015xs+ includes state-of-the-art data snapshot technology, allowing for flexible, point-in-time data backup and recovery.

Frequent, scheduled backup

Automatically create point-in-time copies of data up to every 5 minutes without affecting performance, guaranteeing granular data backup and recovery.

Customizable retention policy

Retain up to 256 hourly, daily, or weekly recovery points according to your individual needs. Smart retention options automatically delete unneeded versions.

Instantaneous snapshots

Capture snapshots instantly and backup data without worrying about files being modified or deleted during the backup process.

Fit into business environments easily
With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, RC18015xs+ enables seamless account integration. The User Home feature can automatically create a "home" folder for every user account to minimize the administrator's effort in repeatedly creating "home" folders for all accounts. Windows ACL support on RC18015xs+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RC18015xs+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RC18015xs+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators' efficiency.
