General Performance

The RS3617xs+ same as the RX1217 is made by Synology. People often choose Synology because of user friendly interface as well as being suited for Mac and Windows based environments. It is relatively easy to set up and use, and those who are new to Network Attached Storage are advised to go for the Synology. This model comes with new DDR4 technology random access memorty (RAM). DDR3 used to work at 800 MT/s (or Millions of Transfers per second) and some went as high as 2133. DDR4, starts at 2133 MHz. The increased speed means an overall increase in bandwidth. Unlike the RX1217 this box has the Intel Xeon D-1531 Six Core 2.2 GHz processor. This box has Xeon processor. These processors usually are used in solutions where you cannot afford even shortest downtime. They usually come with biggest cache size. If processor comes with ECC (Error detection and correction) technology, it prevents server ever to go offline. Useful for accounting or bidding systems with no place for error.

About Connections

It is fast enough to get your files through fairly quickly with this speed and make backing up with an external drive or Apple Time Machine a quick and easy process.

You might want to contact one of our tech guys to find out more.

About Usage

With 12 bay unit you are having additional advantages. You can choose from number of RAID solutions to set up. There could be RAID that saves your data even if one of the drives fail so you can still recover your data. This would be slightly more safe option to keep your data. Besides you can still access your documents or media files over your private network or even internet. You may install Plex Media Server on this box. Plex lets you easily create a feature rich and practical home media playback system. Some boxes offer real time transcoding functionality.

This will allow you to watch videos remotely from anywhere you can connect to the internet. The i3 CPU will transcode all HD and Full HD videos including quite few 4K videos. The i5 and i7 will pretty much transcode any video you want. The difference will be the number of simultaneous streams. The i7 obviously can cope with more streams than i5.
