Robust scalability up to 15 drives
As your data storage needs grow, DS1515 can be connected with up to
two dedicated DX513 expansion units2 for additional storage on the
fly, growing capacity with minimal effort. With two DX513 connected
through cables with specially-designed locking connectors, raw
capacity can be as high as 120TB3.
Reliable redundancy mechanisms
DS1515 comes with four LAN failover support to ensure continual
network service in case of LAN failure, while the hot-swappable
design facilitates easy and risk-free hard drive replacement. The
hard drive tray lock design further secures your hard drives from
unauthorized or accidental withdrawal.
USB 3.0 and eSATA ensure speedy transfers to external
DS1515 boasts USB 3.0 and eSATA ports to connect to various kinds
of external storage devices, while ensuring fast and efficient file
transfer speeds. Support for USB 3.0 offers transfer speeds of up
to 5 Gbps (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0), meaning it takes
less time to transfer data to external hard drives, while also
consuming less power.
Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager
Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, browser-based
operating system running on every DiskStation and RackStation,
which makes managing your Synology NAS a breeze. Featuring an
intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data
smarter and simpler. Synology's Package Center lets you download
and install useful add-on packages designed specifically for
individual or business needs, meaning you can enjoy more
entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.
Fit into business environments easily
With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, DS1515
enables seamless account integration. The User Home feature can
automatically create a "home" folder for every user account to
minimize the administrator's effort in repeatedly creating "home"
folders for all accounts. Windows ACL support on DS1515 allows IT
administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges
to files and folders on DS1515 through the familiar Windows user
interface. With compatibility for major protocols, DS1515 can
eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT
Optimize storage management
With Synology's Storage Manager, DS1515 allows for flexible storage
deployment and utilization. You can optimize RAID configuration
with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) while providing redundant data
protection. Other features such as multiple volumes on single RAID
and Global Hot Spare also greatly enhance management efficiency and
fit deployment of any kind.
Synology CMS (Central Management System)
For enterprises with more than one Synology NAS server, CMS offers
the flexibility and convenience for IT administrators to manage all
of them from a single point of entry. Through a simple interface,
you can obtain a clear overview on resource consumption and logs,
helping you identify any issue right away. With group policies, CMS
can do much more for your daily tasks. Once a NAS joins a group, it
will automatically adopt its rules and behave as intended, without
Ensuring business continuity
Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses.
DS1515 supports Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which
combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former
always mirrored to the latter. The Heartbeat mechanism detects
regular "heartbeats" between the two servers. If the main server
encounters unexpected downtime, the passive server immediately
takes over. With multiple LAN ports, DS1515 also ensures redundancy
in the event of unexpected network failure.
Offering rich office applications, DS1515 can serve as your
multi-function server. With add-on packages Mail Server and Mail
Station, DS1515 can become a dedicated mail server, and let you
enjoy complete webmail service. DS1515 can become a VPN server or
VPN client. The comprehensive VPN service let you access resources
remotely while maintaining security protocols. As a printer server,
DS1515 minimizes businesses' operating costs by sharing printing
resources throughout the office. Administration and network tools,
such as DNS Server, Directory Server, RADIUS Server, DHCP Server,
and Log Center help you manage IT deployment and policies more
efficiently. Maximize resource utilization with DS1515!
Effective backup solution
Synology DS1515 can serve as a centralized backup target. Whether
you are a Windows or Mac user, you can back up everything on your
computer directly to Synology NAS using Cloud Station. Whenever you
modify a file, the changes are backed up to DS1515 automatically.
Mac users also enjoy native AppleŽ Time Machine support. You can
also back up data from your DS1515 to another DiskStation, rsync
servers, external drives, or even AmazonŽ S3, Glacier cloud
service, Microsoft Azure, SFR, and hicloud. "Backup &
Replication" allows you to schedule backup tasks and restore the
server to any particular point in time, while minimizing storage
consumption and processing time by saving only the specific data
block that has been changed between versions.
Increase business productivity with cloud solutions
With comprehensive cloud solutions, DS1515 lets you create your own
private cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync
files across multiple devices. Files can be edited in offline mode
and later synced to Cloud Station, which keeps up to 32 historical
versions, allowing you to restore a file back to previous version
or recover deleted files. With the mobile app DS cloud, any change
made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and
tablets. For distributed enterprises, Synology's 2-way sync between
different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations
share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can
handpick individual folders that they want to sync to different
devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size.
Folders synced by Cloud Station can be encrypted on DSM — no one
will be able to access its content without your private key.
Secure your data
DS1515 offers advanced security measures to protect you from
potential security holes. Security Advisor analyzes system
settings, password strength, network preferences and removes any
possible malware. AppArmor blocks malicious programs from accessing
unauthorized system resources. You can also customize the trust
level in Package Center to avoid installing packages from untrusted
sources, safeguarding your NAS from unknown or tampered files. In
addition, DS1515 provides other security add-ons, such as AES
encryption, 2-Step verification, IP block & allow list,
Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention.
Eco-friendly NAS server
All Synology NAS is designed with energy efficiency in mind. DS1515
only consumes 18.2W in HDD Hibernation and 32.3W in access. The
support of Wake on LAN/WAN and scheduled power on and off can
further reduce power consumption and operation cost. Synology
acknowledges the responsibility as a global citizen, so all
Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed
with recyclable packing materials.
