Synology DS3018xs overview

  • 1Description

Built for work-intensive businesses and virtualization environments, the DiskStation DS3018xs 6-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology is equipped with a PCIe 3.0 x8 slot that can accommodate a 10GbE network interface card for boosting network performance, or a dual M.2 SSD adapter card for caching. It is equipped with six drive bays that are capable of natively supporting 3.5" SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5" SATA hard drives and SSDs. Using its six drive bays, this NAS will allow you to store and share a large number of files, including videos, music, photos, and documents with up to 16,000 user accounts and 2000 maximum concurrent connections.

The DS3018xs runs on Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Its CPU is a 2.2 GHz Intel Pentium D1508 Dual-Core with a burst frequency of up to 2.6 GHz, and its 8GB of DDR4 ECC RAM, which can be upgraded to 32GB, allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving read speeds of up to 2231 MB/s and sequential IOPS reads of up to 265,000. When connected to two DX1215 expansion units, up to 30 total drives are supported.

Also featured are three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, which allow it to be connected to your Windows or Mac system, as well as two expansion ports. Network connectivity is achieved via four integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports, which support Link Aggregation and Failover, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network. Data may also be made remotely available through the free iOS and Android applications. For those who require RAID support, the DS3018xs supports a variety of modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available, allowing each drive bay to be individually utilized.

The DS3018xs is engineered to be energy efficient. Not only does it offer dual 92 x 92mm fans to help keep the system running cool at all times, its noise dampening design of 25.5 dB(A) makes for quiet operation. The server supports numerous scheduled power on / off cycles and hard drive hibernation to further minimize power consumption and operation expenses.

The Synology DiskStation DS3018xs 6-Bay NAS Enclosure operates using a 250W power supply that runs using 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz. Included is an accessory pack, a power cord, and two RJ45 LAN cables. It is protected by a limited 5-year warranty.

    Synology DS3018xs reviews

    DiskStation DS3018xs 6-Bay NAS Enclosure is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for video editors I did what you're not supposed to do and plugged this thing straight into my workstation without a switch and am using it like a DAS. Because I don't have thunderbolt and even if I did this solution is much cheaper than alternatives like Lacie RAIDS. I populated it with four HGST 10TB 7200rpm Deskstar NAS drives in RAID 6. And I get sustained read speeds of 900-1020MB/s. Which means that this NAS is perfect for editing 4K Raw video. So far I am very happy.
