Synology DiskStation Supported Volume Types Volume Type Data Protection HDD # Description Basic No 1 A Basic volume must be created with one hard drive as an independent unit. in which data integrity is (even number) protected when one of the two hard drives fails. Some types of volume can provide data protection to prevent data loss caused by disk failure. Sum of all HDD sizes N2 x (Smallest HDD size) JBOD1 No ≧2 RAID 01 No ≧2 Standard Yes ≧1 Optimized by the system RAID 11 Yes 2-4 Smallest HDD size (N – 1) x (Smallest HDD size) (N – 2) x (Smallest HDD size) (N – 2) x (Smallest HDD size) (N / 2) x (Smallest HDD size) RAID 51 Yes ≧3 RAID 5+Spare1 Yes ≧4 RAID 61 Yes ≧4 RAID 101 Yes RAID 10 has the performance of RAID 0 and data protection level of RAID 1. What is Volume? A volume is the combination of several hard drives into one storage space for centralized management. If the volume is composed of two or more hard drives. It uses parity mode to store redundant data on space equal to the size of one disk for later data recovery. ≧4 --------1 Volume types except for Basic are supported on specific models only. This volume type eliminates the risk of volume failure and provides extra data protection. If you buy a Synology DiskStation with 2 or more bays. you need to set up storage spaces first. including volumes and iSCSI Targets. data integrity is protected when one of the hard drives fails. This chapter explains how to use Volume Manager to set up storage space. It uses parity mode to store redundant data on space equal to the size of two disks for later data recovery. a process of dividing data into blocks and spreading the data blocks across several hard drives. The system will write identical data to each hard drive at the same time. but without safety measures. access external disks with Synology DiskStation Manager. JBOD is a collection of hard drives. RAID 10 combines two hard drives into a group. The Standard volume (also known as Synology Hybrid RAID) can optimize the volume size when combining hard drives with different sizes. so data integrity is protected when at least one disk is normal. you can choose between several volume types. and check hard drive's status. When creating a Basic volume.Chapter Chapter 4: Manage Storage Space 4 Volume Capacity Before sharing Synology DiskStation services with your users. See "Appendix A: Synology DiskStation Specifications" on Page 147 for more information. and one will act as a hot spare drive to rebuild the failed drive of the volume automatically. RAID 0 offers Striping. you can select only one hard drive at a 1 x (HDD size) time. 31 . 2 "N" represents the total number of hard drives within the volume. A RAID 5+Spare volume requires at least four drives.
