Overview of the Synology DS1517+

This Synology Network Attached Storage (NAS) device provides secure storage and management of video data files. It features five drive bays which house a maximum of 50TB storage and can be supplied with Western Digital Purple hard drives (fitting required). In addition, up to two Synology expansion packs (DX517) can be connected via the integrated eSATA connectors to increase storage levels up to a maximum of 150TB.

The unit’s high-performance quad core processor is capable of delivering an average of 1,165 MB/s reading and 527 MB/s writing speeds under a RAID 5 configuration with Link Aggregation enabled. It’s also equipped with a dedicated AES-NI hardware encryption engine to support the fast and secure transmission of encrypted data. Integrated USB 3.0 and eSATA ports allow additional external storage devices to be connected, whilst ensuring fast and efficient file transfer speeds. The unit’s four Ethernet ports feature failover support to provide redundancy in the event of an unexpected port malfunction, and hot-swappable drives reduce system downtime for hassle free maintenance during drive replacement.

Designed specifically for medium to large-size business applications, Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is fully-equipped with helpful applications and features to ensure users get the most from their network storage solution. Support for Windows ACL and LDAP allows the unit to be easily integrated into existing networks. The Btrfs file system is also supported, offering a business-ready solution that helps to prevent data corruption, whilst providing flexible backup tools.
