Windows ACL support on RS18016xs+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on RS18016xs+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, RS18016xs+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency
Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments
RS18016xs+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, RS18016xs+ 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
RS18016xs+ 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). RS18016xs+ 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
RS18016xs+ enhances the ease of moving and copying data in a virtualized environment with the features - LUN Backup, LUN Snapshot, and LUN Clone. RS18016xs+ 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
