Synology's NAS Setup Can Serve You Over 100TB

Synology at Computex showed its DS3611xs, the 12-bay NAS DS3611xs that packs a Sandy Bridge processor at 3.1 GHz (we imagine a Core i3-2100), 2 GB of RAM (expandable to 8 GB). Four USB 2.0 ports, two InfiniBand ports and four Gigabit connections (or two 10 GbE).

The bay can accommodate 12 drives, 3 TB each, for a total of 36 terabytes. But if you need more space, you can connect up to two DX1211 expansion units, each with an additional 12 bays in order to reach a total capacity of over 100 terabytes.

These will start shipping in July, but you'd better have your checkbook ready as they're going to cost over $2000.

    Too bad it isn't a standard rack size. I've shipped a few 36TB 2U computers with hot-swappable drives (not even for NAS purposes, but just local video storage).

    I am a fan of large external arrays. But SAS expanders are damn expensive...

    Looks great for medium size businesses. Except for the people who never delete an email.

    36TB and USB 2.0 ?? If I put down $2000+ I want at least USB 3.0 !

    There is already a large range of products covering that segment. I think this fits better with businesses that don't want a "mini-data center" look for the office. This is pretty low key, and for the cost in hardware, looks pretty unassuming sitting in a utility closet.

    They should write on the box: "The most compact, space efficient way to lose all of your data at once!"

    I'm not saying it is a bad product. I'm merely poking fun at the standard way that small companies back up storage like this; as in they don't.
