Synology FlashStation FS1018

Synology FlashStation FS1018

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.

 

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.

See the white paper for more technical details regarding RAID F1
