New Synology NAS optimized for encryption and intensive tasks
Synology introduced its newest Plus series DiskStations, the DS1515+ and DS1815+. Both multi-bay NAS servers are designed to facilitate intensive data exchange, collaboration, and backups for SMBs.
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 for faster performance execution. Both scalable models are ideal for executing demanding tasks required for businesses working with sensitive data, and virtualization environments.
“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.”
Equipped with four Gigabit LAN ports supporting Link Aggregation and failover reducing downtimes while ensuring writing speeds exceeding 420 MB/s for DS1815+ and 390 MB/s for DS1515+, nearly double the speed of their predecessors.
Reading speeds exceeding 450 MB/s, makes both NAS adept at handling requests from a great number of users simultaneously. DS1515+ and DS1815+ can be scaled up to a raw capacity of 90 and 108 TB respectively by connecting DX513 expansion units via eSATA connections.
The two models support Synology High Availability (SHA) – users can take advantage of the units’ 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.
DS1515+ and DS1815+ run DiskStation Manager (DSM) 5.1, a web-based operating system that provides a host of applications.
