Synology DiskStation DS1511+ packs 15TB (or 45TB with booster drives)
Posted on Dec 22 2010 04:00 AM by xper in Hardware

Synology has outed its latest NAS, and the DiskStation DS1511+ certainly doesn’t skimp on storage space. The five-bay box can store up to 15TB alone, but will also link up with Synology’s DX510 expansion units for a total of 45TB. Meanwhile data is shuffled in and out fast, with Synology using link aggregation for up to 197MB/s read rates and 165MB/s write when in RAID 5 configuration.

Each of the drive bays are hot-swappable, and there are twin gigabit LAN ports for hooking up to your network. Keeping things churning are a 1.8GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM (3GB supported), and there are four USB 2.0 ports and two eSATA for hooking up external drives or using the DS1511+ for printer sharing duties.

Despite the storage potential, Synology reckons the DS1511+ only gobbles down 68W in use, and since it runs the same great software as we reviewed on the Synology DiskStation DS211, you can set it up as everything from a basic network drive to a media server, mail server, FTP store, IP camera station and more. It’s available now, priced at around $870 for the drive-free DS1511+ unit itself, or in various pre-configured forms.
