High Availability (HA) requirements


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody :)

I was fascinated by Synology HA (High Availabilty) feature.

I know that one of the requirments is to have 2 identical (as in model, as in disks -size/number/order-, as in RAM) units.

I wonder please:

1) is HA supported in XPEnology?

2) do the machines have be indentical and if not which are the requiremens?

I only checked the forum FAQs and couldn't find any reference.

Sorry if I missed a tutorial or something and thanks for suggestions or links :)

HA works with Xpenology. It’s advisable to use identical hardware (Ram & Hdd, Cpu can differ) and Dsm and loader versions (both DS3615, 918+, etc.). Both systems must be connected directly with a separate Lan connection, don’t use a switch connection between it. 


You should read the best practice recommendations from Synology before you set up your system.
