Synology Flash Station FS3017 is an all-flash storage NAS server
Synology Flash Station FS3017 is an all-flash storage NAS server - 24 bays - rack-mountable - RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, JBOD, RAID F1 - RAM 16 GB - Gigabit Ethernet / 10 Gigabit Ethernet - iSCSI - 2U
All-flash storage is the way to go if you want the best performance but although costs are dropping, many appliances still come with a hefty price premium. Synology aims to rock the boat with its FlashStation FS3017 which is designed to offer SMBs a powerful all-flash NAS/IP SAN storage solution at an affordable price.
This compact 2U chassis has 24 hot-swap SFF bays and offers plenty of choices as it supports high-performance SAS3 and lower-cost SATA III SSDs. It packs a big hardware package as it's endowed with dual 2.4GHz E5-2620 v3 Xeons and 64GB of ECC DDR4 which can be boosted massively to 512GB.
Network connections are handled by dual embedded 10GBase-T ports and there are two spare PCI-Express slots for adding more. Two USB 3 ports are available for adding external storage devices and the price includes dual 800W hot-plug PSUs.
You can expand outside the box as the FS3017 supports two 12-bay RX1217sas or 24-bay RX2417sas disk shelves. The only drawback is you'll need Synology's dedicated FXC17 SAS3 expansion card which costs an unpleasantly steep 700.
