The Synology DS1515+ is built for speed. With quad core CPU and 2GB of integrated RAM, the DS1515+ is ideal for the important tasks of small and medium-sized businesses as well as the most intensive applications from data-encryption to virtualization support. Through advanced flash technology, the combination of hard drives and read/write-optimised SSD cache boosts throughput efficiently while minimising cost per gigabyte.
With link aggregation, the Synology DS1515+ can deliver up to an average 450.77 MB/s reading and 396.50 MB/s writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows environment. Powered by its AES-NI hardware encryption engine, the DS1515+ also delivers fast encrypted data transmission at over 442.82 MB/s read and 187.88 MB/s write speeds.
Note performance figures could vary within different environments
The DS1515+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V. Being VMware vSphere 5 and VAAI integration certified, the DS1515+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimises computation power for enhanced performance and efficiency in VMware environments. As the centralised storage of a virtual environment, the DS1515+ 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 extremely improves the efficiency on massive data transfer and migration.
Put your data to work with the Synology's DS1515+. With Windows ACL and LDAP support, the DS1515+ 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 network video surveillance, allow a single Synology DS1515+ 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, the DS1515+ is built for reliability. Four Gigabit LAN ports provide redundancy in the event of unexpected hardware failure while hot swappable drives also help to minimise system downtime during drive replacement.
Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses; however, The Synology High Availability (SHA) 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.
The DS1515+ can be connected to dedicated expansion units for additional storage on the fly, growing capacity with minimal effort. When paired with two DX513 expansion units through specially designed eSATA connectors, raw capacity can be as high as 90TB.
Note the DS1515+ supports up to two Synology DX513/DX213, sold separately
Easy Backup Solutions
To protect your critical business data, the DS1515+ 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 and get the most out 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
The Synology DS1515+ is designed with energy efficiency in mind. Equipped with two 80 X 80 mm 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.
Optimal compatibility for NAS systems
This WD Network Drive is specifically engineered for NAS systems with up to 5 drive bays. Each drive is extensively tested for compatibility in the unique 24x7 operating environment and demanding system requirements of home and small business NAS.
NASware 3.0 Technology
NASware 3.0 further optimises the WD Red drive for the NAS environment with added support for 6 to 8 NAS bays. WD Red now supports small NAS systems from 1 to 8 bays thanks to NASware 3.0, which further improves drive compatibility and reliability. At 48 TB of total capacity in an 8 bay system, WD Red expands your NAS experience.
Take advantage of reduced power consumption and lower operating temperature, resulting in a more reliable and affordable solution for always on 24x7 NAS environments.
With a 35% MTBF improvement over standard desktop drives, the WD Network drives are designed and manufactured to be a more reliable and robust solution for your NAS system.
3D Active Balance Plus
The enhanced dual-plane balance control technology significantly improves the overall drive performance and reliability. Hard drives that are not properly balanced may cause excessive vibration and noise in a multi-drive system, reduce the hard drive life span, and degrade the performance over time.
