Designed for low-latency performance even in I/O-intensive environments

Extraordinary Performance, Compact in Size

Designed for desktop usage, Synology FS1018 is a highly capable and expandable NAS built to support Synology’s latest business applications. The Four Gigabit LAN ports can be expanded with higher performance options with the PCIe 3.0 x8 slot, providing over 40K 4K Random Write IOPS.

  • CPU Dual-core 2.2 GHz
  • Memory 8GB DDR4 ECC RAM, up to 32GB
  • Ultra Performance 40K 4K Random Write IOPS
  • Scalability Up to 288TB cold storage with DX1215 Expansion Units

Btrfs: Next Generation Storage Efficiency

FS1018 integrates the Btrfs file system, bringing the most advanced storage technologies to meet the management needs of modern large-scale businesses:

  • Flexible Shared Folder/User Quota System provides comprehensive quota control over all user accounts and shared folders.
  • Advanced snapshot technology with customizable backup schedule allows up to 1,024 copies of shared folder backups in a minimum 5-minute interval without occupying huge storage capacity and system resources.
  • File or folder level data restoration brings huge conveniences and saves time for users who wish to restore only a specific file or folder.
  • File self-healing: Btrfs file system can auto-detect corrupted files with mirrored metadata, and recover broken data using the supported RAID volumes, which include RAID1, 5, 6, and 10.


    Virtualization Solutions

    Synology’s Virtual Machine Manager adds unlimited capabilities to your NAS. Set up and run various virtual machines, including Windows, Linux, and Virtual DSM so that you can test new software versions in a sandbox environment, isolate your customers' machines, and increase the flexibility of your DS1618+ with reduced hardware deployment and maintenance costs.

    Synology iSCSI storage fully supports most virtualization solutions to enhance work efficiency with a simple management interface. VMware vSphere™ 6.5 and VAAI integration helps offload storage operations and optimizes computation efficiency. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) speeds up data transfer and migration rates, while OpenStack Cinder support turns your Synology NAS into a block-based storage component.

    Comprehensive Business Applications

    Powered by the innovative Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), DS3018xs comes fully-equipped with applications and features designed specifically for large-scale businesses:

    • Windows® AD and LDAP support allows easy integration with existing business directory services without recreating user accounts.
    • Windows ACL support provides fine-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing DS3018xs to fit seamlessly into current infrastructure.
    • Application Privileges controls access to applications and packages based on each individual account, user group, or IP address.
    • MailPlus allows your business to set up a secure, reliable, and private mail server while giving your employees a modern mail client for receiving and sending messages
    • With Synology Office, Calendar and Chat, the powerful Collaboration Suite allows secure and efficient private communications as well as content organization that your business can easily manage and control.


    Reliability, Availability & Disaster Recovery

    System reliability is of paramount importance to businesses which depend upon their commercial servers every day. DS1618+ responds to these concerns with wide-ranging availability and redundancy features:

    • Synology High Availability Manager ensures seamless transitioning between clustered servers with minimal impact to applications, preventing unexpected interruptions and costly downtime.
    • Redundant system fans and network ports with failover support ensure maximum continuous service uptime.
    • High reliability system design including fan-less CPU heat-sink and passive cooling technology, preventing single points of failure.
    • Optional 5-year warranty4 is available in select regions.

      ¹ Synology reserves the right to replace memory modules with the same or higher frequency based on supplier's product life cycle status. Rest assured that the compatibility and stability have been strictly verified with the same benchmark to ensure identical performance.

      ² "Compatible drive type" indicates drives that have been tested to be compatible with Synology products. This term does not indicate the maximum connection speed of each drive bay.

      ³ Storage Pool and volume creation require all drives to be listed as compatible on the device model's compatibility list.

      ⁴ Noise Level Testing Environment: Fully loaded with Seagate 2TB ST2000VN000 hard drive(s) in the idle state. Two G.R.A.S. Type 40AE microphones, each set up 1 meter away from the Synology NAS at the front and rear. Background noise: 16.49-17.51 dB(A); Temperature: 24.25-25.75˚C; Humidity: 58.2-61.8%.

      ⁵ Power consumption is measured when it is fully loaded with Western Digital 1TB WD10EFRX hard drive(s).


      • Model specifications are subject to change without prior notice.
      • The figures are based on Synology internal testing. Each performance test is done individually. No other services or applications are processed at the same time.
      • The actual performance may be lower than lab testing figure due to differences in server configuration, deployment, and the number of active operations.
      • If usage requirements exceed the specifications above, please contact our regional partners for professional advice.

    • The maximum number of concurrently connected devices refers to the maximum number of devices that can remain connected at the same time.
    • The maximum number of hosted files refers to the maximum number of files that can be indexed and hosted by the Cloud Station Server service. RAM expansion was not used during testing.
    • Non-encrypted shared folders were used during the aforementioned testing.
    • Surveillance Station throughput is tested with Axis network camera, using continuous recording with live view from Surveillance Station and motion detection by camera. Live view and recording are sharing the same stream from the camera.
    • The maximum channel number also includes devices installed on Virtual DSM.
    • Total FPS may be affected by other services running at the same time (e.g., archive tasks performed by Archive Vault).
    • Exceeding the recommended numbers above will not block application operations, but may result in longer response time.
    • EXT4 file system and non-encrypted shared folders were used during the aforementioned testing.
    • Multiple files were opened for testing and each file was edited by 30 users simultaneously.
    • Client performance may affect maximum simultaneous editing users. Client PCs used for testing: Intel Core i3-3220 / 8GB RAM
    • The host that implements Synology High Availability does not support Virtual Machine Manager.
    • This specification varies depending on the system configuration and the amount of memory.
