Setup uses the Synology Assistant, as do all Synology appliances. From here, you can get the status of your appliance and begin installing DSM.
I used a direct 10Gbe connection to test the FS3017; you can probably tell by the IP in the lower right window. Above is the desktop or dashboard for the FS3017, it's nearly identical to every other appliance we have looked at from Synology. The top left houses the package center, control panel, and file station menu items.
We have gone over DSM several times, and apart from some high availability options, it is pretty standard install for the FS3017.
However, there are quite a few RAID options for the FS3017, as seen in the image above. These include RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, along with JBOD and RAID F1. RAID F2 is set to appear later this year in Synology appliances.
Using 24 1TB SSDs, we have a volume size of 20TB in RAID 0. This is where we start testing and move through all the RAID modes.
Above is just proof of the 24 Phison SSDs in use for this review.
Control panel is where you will find most options. Things like shared folders and users are found here along with network options, update and restore and power.
