Synology® Unveils DiskStation DS1515+ and DS1815+
Ultra-performance NAS optimized for intensive tasks and encryption
Taipei, Taiwan—November 18, 2014—Synology® today introduced DiskStation DS1515+ and DS1815+, 5-bay and 8-bay NAS servers designed for small and medium-sized businesses to facilitate intensive data exchange, collaboration, and backup among large groups of employees.
“SMBs nowadays need a storage solution that is versatile and powerful at the same time; something that can fulfil diverse tasks with utmost reliability,” said Rosiel Lee, senior sales and marketing manager at Synology. “DS1515+ and DS1815+ are built for exactly such purposes.”
Featuring an Intel® Atom™ processor C2000 family 2.4GHz quad-core processor with Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) encryption, as well as a RAM module expandable to 6 GB, both models deliver the robust performance required for businesses’ mission-critical tasks, in particular for encrypted file transfers. The four Gigabit LAN ports supporting Link Aggregation and failover also ensure writing speeds exceeding 410 MB/s for DS1815+ and 390 MB/s for DS1515+ – almost twice as fast as their predecessors – and reading speeds exceeding 450 MB/s, making them capable of handling requests from a great number of users simultaneously. The DS1515+ and DS1815+ can be scaled up to a raw capacity of 90 and 108 TB respectively by connecting DX513 expansion unit.
“Intel is committed to enabling SMBs with advanced yet cost-effective technologies to boost productivity,” said Bev Crair, General Manager of the storage division at Intel Corporation. “The Atom C2000 processor provides Synology NAS with an impressive level of encryption performance for file transfers, while the low energy consumption design keeps operating costs low – both of which are prime concerns for small businesses.”
The two models support Synology High Availability, taking advantage of their multiple LAN ports to ensure the highest uptime and resiliency. The SSD read/write cache support further allows organizations to see a considerable boost in throughput while minimizing the cost per gigabyte. Certified by VMware®, Citrix®, and Microsoft Hyper-V®, both NAS servers can be seamlessly integrated into a company's virtualization environment and act as a powerful central storage.
The DS1515+ and DS1815+ run DiskStation Manager (DSM), the most advanced and intuitive operating system for NAS devices. Its wide range of applications from backup to network management make the two models suitable for providing all essential business services and increasing productivity at work. Synology was voted “PCMag Business Choice Award 2013 winner” and received the highest rating in every category of the survey, including reliability, overall satisfaction, value, and likelihood to recommend.
Synology DiskStation DS1815+ and DS1515+ are now shipping globally.
