Synology Announces the Successor to PCMag's Best NAS of the Year, the DiskStation DS1511+
REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 21, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Synology America Corp. today announced the release of the DS1511+, the successor to their popular flagship DiskStation, the DS1010+. The new five-bay NAS will accept up to two DX510 expansion units for a total of up to 15 drives. Using 3TB drives yields up to 45TB of storage.
The DiskStation provides a reliable solution for the standard NAS roles such as easy file sharing, scheduled backups, remote access, and centralized management. Additional 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. Remote access has been further enhanced with apps available for free on Android and iPhone smartphone platforms.
"The DS1511+ is the most scalable and full-featured NAS of its class," said Franklin Hua, a Technical Marketing Manager at Synology America. "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."
Priced under $900, the new DiskStation runs Synology's DiskStation Manager (DSM) 3.0, including all the features that entails. DSM 3.0 offers users an intuitive desktop-like interface to simplify access to the DiskStation, whether locally or remotely. With its user-friendly Storage Manager and Synology Hybrid RAID, users can quickly and easily create redundant volumes.
DSM 3.0 also brings a rich integrated feature set for business users. Enhanced iSCSI support (including MPIO and MC/S) allows businesses to consolidate their storage without the cost and complexity of a SAN (storage area network). ADS integration allows use of existing domain users and groups for domains up to 100,000 users and groups. Access control lists (ACLs) allow file-level privilege control using NTFS-style permissions.
The DS1511+ also includes Surveillance Station 5, turning it into an affordable NVR (network video recorder) solution quickly. Surveillance Station 5 offers a unified interface for multiple cameras, and supports over 700 models of IP camera. In addition, the DS1511+ is backed by a competitive 3-year warranty and in-house technical support at no extra cost.
