a synology SNV3400 SSD and SNV3500 SSD

NAS specialists Synology have expanded their range of first-party accessories. Announced are two new ethernet cards, supporting up to 25Gbps over fibre-optic. In addition, Synology have announced two 800GB NVMe SSDs intended as cache drives. Synology aren’t the first company you’d think of for an SSD or network card, but if you’re upgrading a Synology NAS then buying first-party might make sense. Synology’s DSM software also has full support for the new products.

It’s worth noting that the new network cards use fibre-optic rather than copper wiring. It’s standard practice for fibre equipment not to include the transceivers, which can adds some cost especially for higher speeds. Fibre equipment also isn’t directly backwards compatible with standard copper cabling.

The full press release follows.

Synology Releases Higher-Capacity M.2 NVMe SSD Models and 10/25GbE Network Cards

Milton Keynes, United Kingdom. 18th February 2021 – Synology Inc. today announced two additions to its enterprise-class M.2 NVMe solid-state drive line for SSD caching, and its latest generation 10/25GbE network cards to drive forward storage and networking performance on its storage solutions.

New 800 GB models for the SNV3400 M.2 2280 and SNV3500 M.2 22110 NVMe SSD lines are designed to let users with larger data sets cache more data, allowing for higher and more consistent performance improvements over HDD-based arrays.

The dual-port 10GbE SFP+ E10G21-F2 compliments the existing lineup of high-speed NICs, while the dual-port 25GbE SFP28 E25G21-F2 provides customers with even faster 25GbE connectivity options.

“Our latest NAS models are built for expansion so that they can meet our customers’ future storage, caching, and connectivity needs,” says Peggy Weng, Synology Product Manager. “With this latest wave of releases, we build on that foundation to offer a solid ecosystem of first-party storage and networking options.”

Supporting larger SSD cache applications

“To satisfy a growing need for cost-effective but high performance and high capacity storage, we introduced our M.2 NVMe SSDs last year to specifically target cache usage,” says Julien Chen, Product Manager at Synology. “Our enterprise-class drives have been well received for their reliable performance and seamless integration with our product lineup.”

“Our two new, higher-capacity models announced today will allow users with bigger pools of hot data to better reap the benefits of the NVMe SSD cache, maximizing the performance an HDD array can output in a very economical way,” Julien Chen said.

Synology SNV3000 series SSD is designed to support heavy caching applications where data integrity is of paramount importance, including virtualization, high-traffic volume database storage, and AI and HPC projects.

With over 205,000/40,000 4K maximum random read/write IOPS and a 500 TBW endurance rating, the SNV3000 series consistently delivers fast caching and effectively reduces latency in scenarios from multimedia post-production to database applications.

Full integration with Synology’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) enables lifetime analytics for each SNV3000 series unit based on actual workloads. Timely notifications when replacement is recommended help users make the most out of each drive’s lifespan.
