First "real" Synology Rackstation

Recommended Posts



I ordered (for a customer) the first big "real" Rackstation. 


  • RS3617RPxs
  • Xeon D 2,7
  • 16GB RAM
  • 10G SFP
  • 12x HGST 6TB
  • M2D18 M2-Adapter 
  • 2x SanDisk 512GB M.2 SSDs (for R/W cache)
  • Rack mounting rails


I'll report how this baby "feels" compared to XPEnologys with Xeons or other "high potential" hardware.


Nice weekend at all :=)

OK, here are the first impressions:


  • RAID10 setup with a total of 36GB (BTRFS)
  • LACP bond 2x10G SFP
  • constant speed of ~ 900MB/s when transferring large files from one server with 1x10G
  • with random but concurrent access of 20 clients (each connected with 1Gbit) each client still receives a throughput of ~ 110MB/s while the overall system load remains under 10% (CPU & RAM)
  • speed gain for heavily accessed files and folders compared to a ProLiant DL 380 G9 with 2x10G SFP and RAID10 on SAS drives due to R/W cache with 2x512GB M.2 SSDs
