    Snapshots
    Snapshots preserve the history of a shared folder allowing you to save up to 1024 backup copies for point-in-time recovery. Snapshots can be automatically captured up to every 5 minutes, without noticeably impacting system performance.
    Metadata Mirroring and Survivability
    Btrfs file system stores two copies of critical metadata on a volume, improving the availability and ensuring the integrity of your file system.
    Corruption Detection and Correction
    Btrfs generates checksums for data and metadata, and then verifies the checksums during each read process to ensure the integrity of the filesystem and files. If the file system discovers a mismatch, metadata will be repaired to keep file system consistent. In the meantime, corrupted files will be reported and logged.
    Customizable Quotas for Shared Folders
    With Btrfs, you can specify a storage limit for each shared folder, making it possible to precisely control space consumption when multiple teams or departments save files on the same Synology NAS server.
    Virtualization Environments
    The DS3617xs provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V.

    Unified Storage System
    Synology's DS3617xs enables businesses to cost-effectively manage multi-protocol data by integrating file-level (NAS) and block-level (SAN) storage into one unified storage system. Files can be shared across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms seamlessly with comprehensive network protocol support (CIFS/SMB, AFP, and NFS). The DS3617xs provides a cost-effective iSCSI solution, allowing large scale businesses to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays. With thin provisioning available for file-level iSCSI LUN, you can maximize storage utilization by oversubscribing provisions and grow storage space as needed.
    Protection with LUN Backup, Snapshot, and Clone
    The DS3617xs enhances the ease of moving and copying data in a virtualized environment with LUN Snapshot, clone, and replication. Synology's LUN Clone and LUN Snapshot only consume 1/1000 of the original size for optimizing storage usage. In addition, Synology's LUN Snapshot lets you create up 256 snapshots per LUN using point-in-time technology without having any impact on system performance. With better support to servers under VMware vSphere or Windows environment, IT managers can expect reliable VM status and data consistency through application-consistent snapshots.
    Synology Central Management System (CMS)
    For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all of them from a single point of entry. Through a simple interface, you can obtain a clear overview on resource consumption and logs, helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS can do much more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without extra configuration.
    Increase Business Productivity with Cloud Solutions
    With comprehensive cloud solutions, the DS3617xs lets you create your own private cloud easily. Cloud Station is a suitable package to sync files across multiple devices. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which keeps up to 32 historical versions, allowing you to restore a file back to previous version or recover deleted files. With the mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprises, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can handpick individual folders that they want to sync to different devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size.
