Higher-capacity expansions bring flash caching, 10GbE and 25GbE to more applications
Synology® Inc. announced two additions to its enterprise-class M.2 NVMe solid-state drive line for SSD caching, and its latest generation 10/25GbE network cards to drive forward storage and networking performance on its storage solutions.
New 800 GB models for the SNV3400 M.2 2280 and SNV3500 M.2 22110 NVMe SSD lines are designed to let users with larger data sets cache more data, allowing for higher and more consistent performance improvements over HDD-based arrays. The dual-port 10GbE SFP+ E10G21-F2 compliments the existing lineup of high-speed NICs, while the dual-port 25GbE SFP28 E25G21-F2 provides customers with even faster 25GbE connectivity options.
“Our latest NAS models are built for expansion so that they can meet our customers’ future storage, caching, and connectivity needs,” says Peggy Weng, Synology Product Manager. “With this latest wave of releases, we build on that foundation to offer a solid ecosystem of first-party storage and networking options.”
Supporting larger SSD cache applications
“To satisfy a growing need for cost-effective but high performance and high capacity storage, we introduced our M.2 NVMe SSDs last year to specifically target cache usage,” says Julien Chen, Product Manager at Synology. “Our enterprise-class drives have been well received for their reliable performance and seamless integration with our product lineup.” Synology SNV3000 series SSD is designed to support heavy caching applications where data integrity is of paramount importance, including virtualization, high-traffic volume database storage, and AI and HPC projects.
“Our two new, higher-capacity models announced today will allow users with bigger pools of hot data to better reap the benefits of the NVMe SSD cache, maximizing the performance an HDD array can output in a very economical way,” Chen said. With over 205,000/40,000 4K maximum random read/write IOPS1 and a 500 TBW endurance rating2, the SNV3000 series consistently delivers fast caching and effectively reduces latency in scenarios from multimedia post-production to database applications.
Full integration with Synology’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) enables lifetime analytics for each SNV3000 series unit based on actual workloads3 along with timely notifications for when drive replacement is recommended to help users get the most out of each drive’s lifespan.
More bandwidth for multi-user and data-intensive applications
The E10G21-F2 and E25G21-F2 boost throughput and performance of compatible Synology systems for bandwidth-heavy tasks such as distributed computing, AI, or big data applications, backing up large numbers of devices, or supporting more simultaneous users for centralized file or block storage applications.
“With more businesses relying on data-intensive applications, we see a consistent need for systems capable of handling higher data throughput,” says Peggy Weng. “That’s why we are introducing 25GbE NICs to our lineup.”
The E25G21-F2 is backward-compatible with 10GbE SFP+ equipment, reducing installation and implementation costs in hybrid networks.
The E10G21-F2, E25G21-F2, SNV3400-800G, and SNV3500-800G are available starting today from Synology resellers globally.
- Performance was measured using FIO on Linux with Queue Depth 256 (4 KB = 4,096 bytes).
- The endurance rating was calculated based on a JESD219A enterprise workload.
- DSM version requirement: 6.2.3-25426 or later version.
- 5 years or based on SSD S.M.A.R.T. indicators (displayed in DSM > Storage Manager), whichever comes first.
