Synology Inc. has announced the availability of the SA3600 storage system, the latest device in the SA family of high-performance and versatile, petabyte-capable network attached storage servers. Built to tackle both existing and future data storage requirements, SA3600 provides businesses with access to faster and larger on-premises storage in a cost-effective package.
"In response to the rising demand for on-premises data storage, we built the SA series to help businesses reach petabyte-scale storage," said Michael Wang, Product Manager at Synology Inc. "SA3600 provides massive storage and high performance to meet the ever-growing compute requirements and to facilitate IT transformation for large-scale businesses."
Versatile architecture to accelerate workload
Powered by an Intel Xeon 12-core processor, the SA3600 is scalable up to 180 drives. SA3600 provides petabyte-scale storage capacity, suitable for massive surveillance deployments, video post-production, and other business environments. Support of both 2.5" and 3.5" SAS/SATA drives increases flexibility and prevents vendor lock-in, minimizing total cost of ownership (TCO).
