Synology expands its portfolio of solutions to the challenges of server IO density, storage capacity, and physical size with three new devices. These are the FS6400, SA3400 and the DS620slim.

The FS and SA series must make data management more flexible and efficient, says product manager Jason Fan. We want to eliminate storage philosophy and enable companies to realize the potential of their important data.


The first model, the FlashStation FS6400, comes with faster storage. This device has two Intel Xeon Silver 8-core processors with more than 24,000 random IOPS write operations in iSCI 4K. The device must be optimized for ritualized environments and containers, databases and web applications.

The model can hold up to 48 drives with two RX1217 sas systems or 72 drives with two RX2417 sas systems. The 32 GB DDR4 ECC-RDIMM memory can be expanded up to 412 GB.

It also includes two 10 GbE and two 1 GbE Ethernet ports with fail-over and Link Aggregation support. The FlashStation FS6400 has two PCle 3.0 slots for additional network connection cards.


The SA3400 is the first model in Synology’s SA series. The device must follow RS18017xs+ and contains an updated eight-core processor. Performance has also been improved by 50 percent in the area of random IOPS reading operations in 4K.

The 16GB DDR4 ECC-RDIMM memory can be expanded to 128GB and storage can be expanded to 1.536TB without significantly reducing performance. The model can hold up to 180 discs with seven RX2417sas systems or 96 discs with seven RX1217sas systems.

This model also contains two 10GbE Ethernet ports, but also comes with four 1GbE variants. There are also two PC slots available for additional network connection cards.


Finally, the DS620slim was unveiled. This device includes an Intel Celeron J3355 2-core processor and 2GB of DDR3L memory, which can be expanded up to 6GB. This system is aimed at modern families and studios who want to improve their streaming experience. The device therefore offers 4K video transcription.

The NAS has a small design of 121 x 151 x 175 millimeters, and read and write speeds of 226 MB per second and 198 MB per second. Users can choose from a variety of RAID configurations for up to 30TB capacity. Storage performance can be further improved with SSD-based read/write tape.

For the network, there are two 1 GbE LAN ports with control management and Link Aggregation.
