Synology logoSynology has updated its top-of-line NASes and added another expandable product.

The DS3612xs and RS3412RPxs are twelve-bay desktop and rackmount models taking over Synology's top-of-line "large scale business" class positions from the DS3611xs and RS3411xs they are replacing.

The pair use a new hardware platform with a passive-cooled 3.1 GHz Intel dual-core CPU (most likely an i3-2100) and 2 GB of DDR3 RAM.

Other hardware features include support for PCIe (x8 Gen2) 10 GbE cards from Emulex and Intel, four Gigabit Ethernet ports supporting failover and aggregation, four USB 2.0 ports and two Infiniband expansion ports. Adding two twelve-bay DX1211's can bring total storage to 108 TB of unformatted capacity using 3 TB drives.

The RS3412xs squeezes only ten bays into a 2U rackmount configuration, so expands only to 102 TB of total capacity by adding two RX1211 expansion cabinets. Redundant power supply versions of both the base and expansion cabinets are available as the RS3412RPxs and RX1211RP.
