Synology RS10613XS+ and RX1213sas

At VMworld 2012 this year, I was able to get a glimpse of the next generation SANS from Synology. The biggest excitement with these new SANS, is the ability to have SSD Read Cache. Since we now have VAAI available, these units have now become enterprise worthy. It's expected that they will also be available in a couple months for under $10k. 

Check out some of the specs and options: 

  • More than 2000 MB per sec., as well as ultra-high transmission efficiency of more than 200,000 IOPS
  • Synology RX1213sas - Up to expand capacity to more than 400TB
  • Supports two 10GbE network port (using the add-in network adapter compatible with PCI-E)
  • Compatible with VMware ® / Citrix ® / Microsoft ® / Hyper-V ®
  • Passively cooled CPU and system fan redundancy mechanism
  • The scalable ECC memory (up to up to 8GB)
  • The operating system Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM)
