The DS2015xs 8-Bay DiskStation NAS Server from Synology has eight drive bays, each capable of housing either 3.5" or 2.5" SATA III/SATA II hard drives. The DS2015xs also features an Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-514 quad-core 1.7 GHz processor along with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, which is expandable up to 8GB. Thanks to the high-speed processor the DiskStation can deliver up to 1,930.18 MB/s average sequential read throughput and 54,654.84 sequential read IOPS under RAID 5 configuration with VLAN. Note: *Hard drives not included. DS2015xs supports one Synology DX1215, sold separately.

Key Features


  • The DiskStation DS2015xs is built for small and medium-sized businesses seeking a combination of cost-effectiveness and performance. Equipped with an Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-514 quad-core 1.7 GHz CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable up to 8GB), native SATA III (6 Gb/s) drive support, and built-in 10 GbE SFP+ ports, the DiskStation is suitable for the mission-critical tasks, multi-tasking data processing, as well as virtualization support. Through advanced flash technology, the combination of hard drives and SSD cache boosts throughput efficiently while minimising cost per gigabyte. With link aggregation, it can deliver up to an average 1,930.18 MB/s sequential read throughput and 54,654.84 sequential read IOPS under RAID 5 configuration with VLAN.

Virtualization Certified

  • DS2015xs provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V. Being Vmware vSphere 5 and VAAI integration certified, DS2015xs helps offload specific storage operations and optimises computation power for performance and efficiency in VMware environments. As the centralised storage of a virtual environment, it enables virtual machine migration, allowing movement from server to server whilst eliminating service downtime and disruption to user. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) and Synology Advanced LUN support improves the efficiency on massive data transfer and migration.


  • The DS2015xs can be connected to dedicated expansion units for additional storage on-the-fly, thus increasing the capacity with minimal effort. When paired with a Synology DX1215 expansion unit through specially designed expansion cable, raw capacity can be as high as 108TB. 1

    Please Note:
    DS2015xs supports one Synology DX1215, sold separately. close Business Applications

  • With Windows ACL and LDAP support, DS2015xs fits easily into any existing workgroup environment, providing detailed access control and efficient privilege settings. SMB applications including printer sharing, VPN server, Mail server, Web server, anti-virus, and IP surveillance, allow a single Synology DS2015xs to replace several traditional computing devices and help to maximise your productivity while keeping cost and effort to a minimum.

Resilient and Reliable

  • In addition to its enhanced performance, DS2015xs is built for reliability. Two 10 Gb/s SFP+ LAN and two 1 Gb/s RJ-45 LAN ports provide redundancy in the event of an unexpected hardware failure while hot-swappable drives also help to minimise system downtime during drive replacement.

Synology High Availability Manager can ensure a seamless transition between clustered servers in the event of server failure with minimal impact to applications, thus decreasing the risk of unexpected interruptions and costly downtime.

Easy Backup Solutions

  • To protect your critical business data, DS2015xs can become a centralised backup target for consolidating fragmented and unstructured information across your network through a range of options. Synology Hybrid RAID allows you to optimise usage of your hard drives, while also keeping your storage safe with data redundancy. Complete backup solutions including LUN Snapshot, LUN clone, and backup and replication minimise the impact of disasters.

Energy Efficient Design

  • Synology DS2015xs is designed with energy efficiency in mind. The enclosure is equipped with two 120 x 120mm fans and a smart airflow design to keep the system running cool 24/7, while its noise dampening design makes it much quieter than PC counterparts. Hard drive hibernation further reduces power consumption and operation costs.

DS2015xs is produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen to continually work to reduce the environmental impact of every product produced.
