Synology has announced DiskStation DS1512+, a five-bay, next generation NAS server. It features a passive CPU cooling technology and a fan redundancy mechanism of two user-replaceable 80mm fans, eliminating a single point of failure and ensure continuous system uptime during malfunction.

The dual LAN network failover support allows DS1512+ to sustain the potential of one network discontinuity while maximizing system availability at all times, according to Peter Chen, product manager of Synology. Among the first to support the industry’s latest 4TB hard drives, the DS1512+ scales up to 15-bay for 60TB of maximum storage capacity by leveraging the expansion capabilities of Synology DX510.

Equipped with a 2.13 GHz dual core processor with Link Aggregation enabled, the DS1512+ achieves read and write speed at 200.31 MB/sec and 194.83 MB/sec, respectively, in RAID 5 configuration. Synology DS1512+ operates on DiskStation Manager 3.2 (DSM 3.2), the operating system of every Synology NAS server. For more info, including pricing options, go to for more product information .
