Scalable NAS for SMB growing demands
With its superior performance, scalability, resilience, and comprehensive features, DS1513+ is the ideal storage solution for growing SMB to simplify data management.
Dual core CPU and expandable RAM for mission critical tasks
With a dual core CPU and expandable up to 4GB RAM capacity, DS1513+ is ideal for the mission critical tasks of SMBs, as well as the most intensive applications like data-encryption high-performance multimedia processing. DS1513+ can deliver up to an average 387.88 MB/sec reading and 196.06 MB/sec writing speeds under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment.
Four LAN ports with failover and Link Aggregation support
Coming with quad LAN ports with failover and Link Aggregation support, DS1513+ ensures continual network service in case of LAN connection failure, avoiding possible disruption occurrences. Link Aggregation with trunking feature enhances connection speeds beyond the limits of any one single cable or port.
Robust scalability up to 90TB
As your data storage needs grow, DS1513+ can be connected to dedicated DX513 expansion units for additional storage on the fly, growing capacity with minimal effort. With two DX513 expansion units through specially designed eSATA connectors, raw capacity can be as high as 90TB.
Built for reliability with redundancy mechanisms
DS1513+ supports hot swappable drives, minimizing system downtime during drive replacement. Passive cooling technology eliminates dependency upon a dedicated processor cooling fan. Should a fan fail, built-in redundancy mechanisms will spin up functional fan(s) to improve ventilation.
Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager
Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, browser-based operating system running on every DiskStation and RackStation, which makes managing your Synology NAS a breeze. Featuring an intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data smarter and simpler. Synology's Package Center lets you download and install useful add-on packages designed specifically for individual or business needs, meaning you can enjoy more entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.
Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments
DS1513+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, DS1513+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments. Windows ODX support speeds up data manipulation as the data transfer is offloaded. iSCSI also lets SMB users consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.
Fit into business environments easily
With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, DS1513+ enables seamless account integration. The User Home feature can automatically create a "home" folder for every user account to minimize the administrator's effort in repeatedly creating "home" folders for all accounts. Windows ACL support on DS1513+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on DS1513+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, DS1513+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.
Optimize storage management
With Synology's Storage Manager, DS1513+ allows for flexible storage deployment and utilization. You can optimize RAID configuration with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) while providing redundant data protection. Other features such as multiple volumes on single RAID and Global Hot Spare also greatly enhance management efficiency and fit deployment of any kind.
Synology CMS (Central Management System)
For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all of them from a single point of entry. Through a simple interface, you can obtain a clear overview on resource consumption and logs, helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS can do much more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without extra configuration.
The most compatible sharing
Enjoy seamless files sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux® platforms as DS1513+ offers comprehensive network protocol support including FTP, SMB2, AFP, NFS and WebDAV. With Windows AD and LDAP integration, DS1513+ can fit effortlessly into any existing network environment - there is no need for IT administrators to maintain two sets of credentials. You also won't worry about missing files with the Recycle Bin feature which is supported on AFP, CIFS, File Station, and WebDAV. All files deleted in a shared folder will be automatically moved into the Recycle Bin.
Effective backup solution
Synology DS1513+ can serve as a centralized backup target. PC users can back up their data to the DS1513+ using Windows Backup, while Mac OS X users enjoy native Apple® Time Machine integration. You can also back up data and applications from your DS1513+ to another DiskStation, rsync servers, external drives, or even Amazon® S3 and Glacier cloud service. "Backup & Replication" allows you to schedule backup tasks and restore the server to any particular point in time, while minimizing storage consumption and processing time by saving only the specific data block that has been changed between versions. With Cloud Station, files on your PC can be backed up to DS1513+. Whenever you modify a file, the changes are backed up on DS1513+ automatically.
DS1513+ can replace several pieces of network hardware and serve as your multi-function server. Directory Server provides LDAP service, while DNS and DHCP packages allow you to host a domain name server and automate network IP assignment at no extra cost. With only one DS1513+, you can do more than you imagine - host up to 30 websites with Web Station, safeguard the office environments with Surveillance Station, send and receive mail using your own email domain with Mail Station, share printing capability with Printer Server, make DS1513+ act as a VPN server to access company's resources remotely, and more. DS1513+ helps your company gain a competitive edge.
Ensuring business continuity
Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. DS1513+ offers Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and a passive server into one cluster, the latter always mirrored to the former. The Heartbeat mechanism detects regular "heartbeats" between the two servers. If the main server encounters unexpected downtime, the passive server immediately takes over. With multiple LAN ports, DS1513+ also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure.
Increase business productivity with cloud solutions
With comprehensive cloud solutions, DS1513+ lets you create your own cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices with the benefit of better privacy for important data. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which retains up to 32 versions to avoid file overwriting. With mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprise, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can customize synchronization rules, such as avoiding syncing large files to optimize bandwidth usage.
Secure your data
DS1513+ provides share-level AES 256-bit encryption to block off unauthorized access attempts. Once you create and encrypt a shared folder, people without the encryption key will not be able to use the encrypted data even if they remove the hard drives from your DS1513+ and mount it on their device. 2-Step verification gives an extra layer of protection as 6-digit one-time code sending to your mobile device is required for login. In addition, DS1513+ provides other security add-ons, such as IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention. These enhancements ensures a secure DSM environment.
Eco-friendly NAS server
All Synology NAS is designed with energy efficiency in mind. DS1513+ only consumes 25.75W in HDD Hibernation and 51W in access. The support of Wake on LAN/WAN and scheduled power on and off can further reduce power consumption and operation cost. Synology acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen, so all Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials.
