The hardware encryption engine ensures fast encrypted data transmission speeds of up to 296 MB/s reading and 150 MB/s writing.

The DS1515 supports Synology High Availability, providing redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure and ensuring a smooth transition between clustered servers for the highest reliability and resiliency.
