Powerful and Flexible Scalability
UC3200 is an affordable yet reliable IP SAN solution for mission-critical environments. Within the 2U chassis are active-active controller nodes, each powered by an Intel® Xeon® D-1521 4-core processor and 8 GB DDR4 ECC UDIMM, expandable up to 64 GB. It delivers outstanding performance of over 140,000 4K Random Write IOPS.
UC3200 allows you to start small and grow in the future. It holds 12 x 3.5"/2.5" SAS interface drive slots by default, and can be further scaled up to 36 SAS drives when connected with two RXD1219sas expansion units. It comes with single 10GbE and dual 1GbE RJ-45 ports per controller and supports 10GbE / 25GbE network interface card expansion with PCIe 3.0, boosting network bandwidth with Link Aggregation.
The active-active controller design maximizes the system uptime for your important applications. The inter-connectivity through high-speed NTB (Non-Transparent Bridge) between the two controllers allows one of them to seamlessly take over the service when the other breaks down. In addition, UC3200 syncs all cached data between the two controllers, avoiding data loss in case of controller failure before data is written into the drives. The built-in SATA-DOM on each controller is solely used for running the operating system, allowing system partition to be separated from data to optimize system stability.
Rock-solid Data Protection
UC3200 supports Synology Snapshot Replication, which provides schedulable, near-instantaneous data protection for mission-critical services. It supports up to 4,096 system-wide replications to offsite servers and local volumes, allowing for application-aware snapshot protection and instant recovery of virtual machines in iSCSI LUNs in the event of a disaster.
Non-disruptive iSCSI Service for Virtualization
UC3200 enhances work efficiency with a simple management interface. VMware vSphere® 6.5 and VAAI integration helps offload storage operations and optimizes computational efficiency. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) speeds up data transfer and migration rates, while support for OpenStack Cinder transforms your UC3200 into a blockbased storage component.
UC3200 also complies with the iSCSI industrial standard ALUA, allowing hosts to identify optimized paths to increase transfer performance and efficiency.
Simple and Intuitive Management
Powered by DSM UC operating system, UC3200 offers comprehensive functionalities while keeping the intuitive DSM experience to ease the learning curve. The simplified management interface allows you to manage the two controllers from a single management portal. The builtin monitor function gives the most updated status in real time and provides prompt notifications when important events occur, allowing IT administrators to respond accordingly.
Delivering reliable, highly available iSCSI services
Realizing high-availability architecture in just one single chassis, the two controllers in Synology UC3200 work simultaneously and can automatically fail over to each other in the event of disaster, delivering services without any interruptions.
12 x 3.5”/2.5” HDD/SSD
High-performance SAS interface drive slots with maximum 576TB raw capacity. Supporting SED (Self Encrypting Drive) to encrypt all data to hard drives, UC3200 provides upmost data security at the hardware level.
4 x DDR4 memory slotsFanSATA DOMNon-Transparent Bridge (NTB) Processor Armed with Intel® Xeon® D-1521 4-core 2.4 GHz processor burst up to 2.7 GHz, UC3200’s dual CPUs provide enterprise-class performance of 140,000 4K random write IOPS with low latency.
4 x DDR4 memory slots
8GB ECC UDIMM, expandable up to 64GB to boost system performance.
Redundant, modularized fans for easy maintenance and replacement, minimizing service downtime.
The dedicated SATA DOM isolates the operating system from the regular data stored in hard drives. Non-Transparent Bridge (NTB) Connect two controller modules at a blazingly fast speed and instantly sync memory data between the controllers to prevent cached data loss when one controller is unavailable.
Works with mainstream virtualization systems
Optimized for virtualization environments.
- Integrated with VMware vSphere 6.5, Microsoft Hyper-V, and VAAI to offload storage operations and optimize computational efficiency.
- Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) is supported to speed up data transfer and migration rates.
- Turn Synology UC3200 into a block-based storage component with the support of OpenStack Cinder.
- Compliance with iSCSI industry standard ALUA allows hosts to identify the optimized paths to increase data transfer performance and efficiency.
A system built exclusively for iSCSI
DSM UC, an operating system designed to ease the learning curve, allows you to manage the two controllers from one single portal. The built-in monitor applications display the status at a glance and send prompt notifications when important events occur, so that IT administrators can stay alert to potential problems and respond in the shortest time possible.
Disaster-proof your critical data
Snapshot Replication is put in place with the support of Btrfs file system, offering schedulable and near-instantaneous data protection. Supporting up to 4,096 system-wide snapshots for local volumes or offsite servers, UC3200 brings application-aware snapshot protection and instant recovery of virtual machines in iSCSI LUNs in the event of a disaster.
