Overview of the Synology DS1815+

This Synology Network Attached Storage (NAS) device provides secure storage and management of video data files. It features eight drive bays that house a maximum of 64TB storage with the option to be supplied with Western Digital Purple hard drives (fitting required). Additionally, up to two Synology expansion packs can be connected via the eSATA connectors to increase storage levels to a maximum of 144TB.

The unit’s powerful quad core processor is capable of delivering an average of 451.44 MB/s reading and 412.95 MB/s writing speeds under RAID 5 configurations. It also features a high-performance AES-NI hardware encryption engine to support the fast and secure transmission of encrypted data. Four integrated Ethernet ports feature failover and Link Aggregation support, providing redundancy in the event of an unexpected port malfunction and improved connection speeds beyond the limits of a single network cable or port. The hot-swappable drive design reduces system downtime during maintenance and additional external storage devices can be easily connected via the unit’s USB 3.0 ports for quick data transfer.

Support for Windows ACL and LDAP allows the device to be easily integrated into existing networks. Additional add-on applications, such as DiskStation Manager offer a range of helpful tools to ensure users get the most from their network storage solution.
