Synology Unveils New 5-Bay and 8-Bay SMB NAS’
Bohs Hansen / 3 years ago
We’ve been expecting the launch for some time and some information about the two new NAS server could already be found on the official website. But now we got the final introduction to the DS1515+ 5-bay and DS1815+ 8-bay NAS designed with small and medium businesses in mind.
Built around the Intel Atom processor C2000 2.4GHz quad-core processor with Intel AES New Instructions encryption, as well as a RAM module expandable to 6 GB, these NAS models are sure to deliver the robust performance required for businesses’ mission-critical tasks, including 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+ which is almost double that of their predecessors. Reading speeds are said to exceed 450 MB/s making them capable of handling requests from a lot of simultaneous users. The two models support Synology High Availability, taking advantage of their multiple LAN ports to ensure the highest uptime and resiliency.
Both models are of course expandable with the DX513 unit as we’re used to from Synology, which in return would allow for up to 90 and 108TB of storage respectively. Another great feature is the SSD read/write cache that allows a considerable boost in throughput while minimizing the cost per gigabyte. The SSD cache feature however requires two SSD’s and thereby 2 bays.
The two new NAS servers are certified by VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V To allow for a seamless integration into a company’s virtualization environment. Both devices have started shipping globally and should be available shortly.
Thanks to Synology for providing us with this information
