Unboxing the Synology DS3617xs NAS – Still the Most Powerful Desktop NAS they have ever Released

STILL the most powerful Diskstation, the Synology DS3617xs 12-Bay Desktop NAS

No strangers to to network Attached Storage, one of the most popular NAS brands in the world, Synology unveiled their most ambitious enterprise desktop NAS ever back at the start of the year- The 12-Bay DS3617xs DiskStation NAS. It was a real change of scene for their range and a follow up to the business niche DS3615xs NAS of 2015. Unlike the older unit though, this was no small step in terms of hardware, but a GIANT LEAP for NAS kind. With so many NAS devices being released from Synology in their Diskstation series, we though it worth shinning a light on what is still the most POWERFUL desktop NAS they have ever released. It’s breathtakingly powerful hardware, coupled with the latest release of Synology DSM 6.1 (DSM 6.2 now in beta) for business applications will really make this the standalone enterprise and business choice for NAS applications even this late in 2017 and into 2018.

What are the specs of the Synology DS3617xs Business NAS?

The Synology DS3617xs 12-Bay NAS is available  for around £1700+ without VAT or HDD media. But for that money you get a whole lot of bang for your buck! The specs are as follows:

Intel Xeon D-1527 Quad-Core CPU (2.2GHz that can be burst to 2.7GHz)
16 GB (up to 48 GB) DDR4 ECC SODIMM across 2 Slots
2 x USB 3.0 port

THAT is some serious specifications for a desktop NAS. If we delve a little deeper into those specification, we can see that is why this is Synology’s most ambitious desktop NAS yet.
