A Dual Core processor, an abundant amount of memory, and two Gigabit LAN ports enable an ultra- smooth, lag-free response, while SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports and eSATA ports allow instant, lightning-fast storage expansion. Running on the renowned operation system Synology DSM, and featuring an abundance of applications and features, this system provides an efficient way to centralize data protection, simplify data management, and rapidly scale storage capacity with minimal time required for setup and management. Complete with the high reliability and stability Synology is renowned for, you can rest assured that your business will be performing at top efficiency with minimized issues and maximized up time.
High Performance, High Data Availability With the Link Aggregation enabled, Synology DS1512+ delivers an average 194.83 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows environment, and 200.31 MB/sec reading1. Coming with USB 3.0 support – which offers transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbps, namely 10 times faster than USB 2.0 – DS1512+ takes less time for data transfer for external hard drives and consumes less power.
Synology DS1512+ brings you the high performance that your data-intensive applications demand for a storage system, and offers the ability to scale the storage capacity.
High Reliability Reliable functioning of commercial systems is of paramount concern to business users who depend on these servers every day. Synology DS1512+ is now introduced with a fanless CPU heatsink to prevent the single point of failure. With the CPU passive cooling technology, Synology DS1512+ achieves the high reliability system design. When one of your system fans malfunctions, the built-in system fan redundancy mechanism can extend service uptime by keeping the remaining fan running and your DS1512+ performing basic operations until the replacement fan arrives. The 2 LAN with failover support and hot-swappable drives will ensure continual service uptime should the drives need replacement or the unexpected LAN failure occurs.
Robust and Affordable Scalability up to 60TB When the storage capacity of the Synology DS1512+ is nearing its limits, it can easily be expanded with the Synology DX5132. The Synology DX513 securely connects to the Synology DS1512+ via an eSATA cable of specially-designed connectors on both ends to ensure maximum throughput. The Synology DX513 can directly expand the existing storage on the Synology DS1512+ to a maximum 60TB capacity.
iSCSI and Virtualization Ready With the iSCSI support in DSM, the Synology DS1512+ provides a seamless storage solution for virtualization servers, such as VMware, Hyper-V, and Citrix. It is the ideal alternative to SAN solution for businesses. Affordable and cost-effective, iSCSI allows SMB users to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays, while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.
Full-featured Business Applications The Synology DS1512+ runs on the renowned operation system Synology DSM, offering applications and features designed specifically for SMBs. Comprehensive network protocol support assures seamless file sharing across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. Windows ADS and LDAP integration allows the DS1512+ to quickly and easily fit in an existing business network environment, with no need to recreate user accounts. The Directory Server package can turn the DS1512+ into an LDAP-based directory server within minutes. Windows ACL support on DS1512+ provides much finer-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing IT staffs to set up privileges to files and folders on the DS1512+ through their familiar Windows user interface. Internet file access is simplified with the included encrypted FTP server and the web-based file explorer, Synology File Station.
Energy Efficient Design Synology DiskStation is designed and developed with energy efficiency in mind. Compared with the average PC counterparts, Synology DS1512+ consumes only 50.6 watts in operation. The support of wake on LAN, scheduled power on/off, and hard drive hibernation can further reduce power consumption and operation costs. All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packaging materials. Synology acknowledges its responsibility as a global citizen to continually work to reduce the environmental impact of every product produced.
