Description
FlashStation FS1018
Desktop form factor all-flash NAS designed for I/O-intensive and latency-sensitive applications

Extraordinary performance. Compact size.
The all-flash FS1018 supports up to 12 x 2.5” SATA SSDs in a desktop form factor. It is low latency and provides high IOPS for the most demanding work environments. It is ideal for running business applications like mail services, virtualization and latency-sensitive applications.

CPU - Dual-core Turbo Boost up to 2.6 GHz
Memory - 8GB DDR4 ECC RAM, up to 32GB
High Performance - Over 40,000 iSCSI 4K random write IOPS
Scalability - Connect up to two DX1215 expansion units

Supercharge your storage with speedy performance
With four built-in Gigabit LAN ports, FS1018 is capable of performing Link Aggregation and failover. For environments requiring a higher speed, the addition of an Ethernet add-on card can increase data transmission to 10GbE.

10GbE
10GbE network capacity for bandwidth intensive environments
Note: Network adapter card needs to be purchased separately.

RAID F1
Due to the peculiarities of SSD and RAID technology, a common challenge lies in how to prevent all of the drives from failing at the same time because of the evenly distributed workload. RAID F1 alleviates this problem with a specially designed algorithm to unevenly distribute workload to drives, enhancing the resilience of the storage pool and ensuring your data remains safe.

Next-generation file system for advanced data protection
The Btrfs file system introduces the most advanced storage technologies. It helps to prevent data corruption and reduce maintenance overhead with optimized snapshots. Btrfs ensures high-level data integrity, while taking advantage of flexible and efficient data protection and recovery tools.
Flexible Shared Folder and User Quota System provide comprehensive quota control on user accounts and shared folders
Snapshot Replication provides data protection that is able to be scheduled and saves storage capacity. It supports 1,024 shared folder backups and 65,000 system-wide snapshots
File- or folder-level data restoration accelerates data recovery and flexibility
Automatically self-healing files detect and recover corrupted files without user intervention

Fully certified storage virtualization solutions
Synology iSCSI storage fully supports most virtualization solutions to enhance work efficiency with easy management interface. VMware vSphere 6 and VAAI integration helps offload storage operations and optimizes computation efficiency. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) speeds up data transfer and migration rate. OpenStack Cinder support turns your Synology NAS into a block-based storage component.

5 year warranty
Synology's 5-year limited warranty provides hardware replacement and technical support via email and telephone services, maximizing your enterprises' return on investment.


Snapshot Replication
Provides schedulable and instantaneous data protection for shared folders and virtual machines on iSCSI LUNs in the event of disaster.

Synology High Availability
Ensures seamless service transition between clustered servers in the event of a server failure.

Hyper Backup
Store multiple backup versions with block-level incremental data backup and cross-version deduplication.

CMS
Manage multiple Synology NAS servers simultaneously on a centralized interface to increase business efficiency.

Cloud Station Suite
Synchronize cross-platform data automatically with file version control on all your devices.

MailPlus
Secure, reliable, and private mail server solution with an intuitive and modern mail client.
