Posted on Apr 20 2017 - 4:34pm by Upgrade Staff

Synology launched DiskStation DS1517+ and DS1817+ together with the Expansion Unit DX517. The scalable 5-bay and 8-bay tower servers offer a high-performance and versatile network-attached storage solution for tech enthusiasts and small/medium-sized businesses.

The new feature in DS1517+ and DS1817+ is the inclusion of a PCIe slot, which allows users to install an optional 10GbE network interface card or Synology’s new M2D17 M.2 SATA SSD adapter. In addition, DS1517+ and DS1817+ both come in 2GB and 8GB memory configurations, which can be upgraded to 16GB thanks to the accessible memory compartment.

Installing an additional network interface card allows businesses to take advantage of up to two 10GbE ports to boost throughput. When combined with the Intel Atom quad-core 2.4GHz processor and equipped with optional dual channel memory, DS1517+ and DS1817+ can deliver sequential throughput performance up to 1,179 MB/s reading and 542 MB/s writing speeds.

With the introduction of Synology’s new M2D17 PCIe adapter card, DS1517+ and DS1817+ can be equipped with dual M.2 SATA SSDs, allowing users to enhance performance and latency using SSD caching without occupying the front drive bays.

Both DS1517+ and DS1817+ support connecting up to two DX517 expansion units, allowing users to add up to 10 additional drive bays and scale up storage capacity on-the-fly. The RAID volume can be expanded without having to reformat the existing hard drives, ensuring seamless capacity expansion without downtime.

DS1517+ and DS1817+ both carry three-year limited warranties. An additional extended warranty option is available in selected regions for up to five years of coverage.
