Network storage maker Synology announced the release of the five-bay DS1511+ NAS, an update of the firm’s DiskStation DS1010+.
The DiskStation DS1511+ will even accept up to two DX510 expansion units to house 15 drives. Using 3TB drives, the DS1511+ can be loaded with 45TB of storage.
The DiskStation is aimed at standard NAS roles such as file sharing, scheduled backups, remote access, and centralised management. Optional services can also be enabled such as a built-in web server capable of hosting up to thirty sites at once, or an add-on email server.
“The DS1511+ is the most scalable and full-featured NAS of its class,” said Synology marketing manager Franklin Hua. “With the DS1511+ so affordable and packed with all the features Synology is known for, why would anyone choose DAS? This is a tremendous value.”
ynology said remote access has been further enhanced with free apps available for Android and iPhone smartphones. The unit is priced at under $900 US with European prices not yet available but the previous model Synology DS1010+ goes for a little over £600 in the UK.
