Synology (www.synology.com) has 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.
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, says Rosiel Lee, senior sales and marketing manager at Synology. 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+ 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. The two models support Synology High Availability, taking advantage of their multiple LAN ports to ensure the highest uptime and resiliency, says Lee. The SSD read/write cache support further allows organizations to see a considerable boost in throughput while minimizing the cost per gigabyte, she adds.
Certified by VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V, both NAS servers can be integrated into a company’s virtualization environment and act as a central storage.
The DS1515+ and DS1815+ run DiskStation Manager (DSM), an operating system for NAS devices.
