News | 21.07.2023

Bellevue, WA (July 19, 2023)—Synology announced the addition of two new dual-controller systems to its range of enterprise data management solutions: the UC3400, an active-active system designed for mission-critical SAN storage, and the SA3400D, a versatile active-passive system for NAS and SAN applications.

UC3400 and SA3400D provide efficient high availability with shared storage and can accommodate up to 576 TB when fully expanded.

The UC3400 and SA3400D provide cost and space-efficient high availability for businesses and organizations of all sizes. They are tailored respectively to provide highly reliable block storage within the context of a SAN or ensure the highest uptime for file sharing and office applications.

UC3400 Active-active SAN for mission-critical environments

Active-active SAN for high-uptime block storage

The UC3400 is a purpose-built solution for virtualization. It offers reliable, high-availability block storage over iSCSI and Fibre Channel. Its active-active dual-controller architecture allows for instant failover, meaning it's ready for organizations seeking a zero-downtime solution for critical systems and services.

The UC3400 includes data protection designed to meet strict regulatory compliance. Support for self-encrypting drives keeps data protected against physical loss or theft, and off-site snapshot replication adds another degree of protection against both malware and physical disaster.

UC3400 Virtualization-ready

Synology UC3400. Full certification for VMware, vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, and OpenStack environments

Support for Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX), VMware vSphere Storage APIs Array Integration (VAAI), and ALUA ensures optimized and efficient storage operations.

OpenStack® Cinder support enables UC3400 to become a block-based storage component.

Versatile high-availability solution for office applications

The SA3400D offers exceptional value for organizations of every size by combining reliability and efficiency in a compact system. The SA3400D's high-availability active-passive architecture supports minute-level failover times, minimizing service downtime. Support for hybrid storage arrays allows the SA3400D to leverage the speed of SSDs in combination with the efficiency of HDDs, making it capable of a range of different workloads.

With support for Synology's DSM operating system, the SA3400D offers enhanced functionality through an array of first and third-party software packages.

In addition to Snapshot Replication and Hyper Backup for data and system backups, Synology's Active Backup Suite also provides an intuitive solution for managing organization-level backups of Windows, macOS, and Linux endpoints, virtual servers, and cloud applications. The SA3400D can also empower distributed teams to collaborate and share files using Synology's comprehensive suite of online productivity applications.
