Product Overview DiskStation DS1815+
Ultra-performance NAS optimized for intensive tasks and encryption

Featuring a quad-core processor, hardware encryption engine, and flawless software integration, DS1815+ is a powerful, expandable 8-bay NAS server that delivers outstanding speed and accelerated data encryption. Easily scalable, the DS1815+ can be equipped with up to 6GB of DDR3 RAM and host up to 108TB of raw capacity with two Synology DX513 units.

Quad-core CPU for blazing-fast performance
DS1815+ is powered by a quad-core CPU running at 2.4 GHz. Combined with 2GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 6GB), it delivers blazing-fast performance over 450 MB/s reading and 420 MB/s writing. That much power makes it easy for DS1815+ to multitask and provide consistently high throughput to all connected clients.

Fast encrypted data transmission with AES-NI
Encrypting data is essential to a healthy security policy. Equipped with a dedicated hardware encryption engine, DS1815+ is the ideal digital locker for sensitive data; files and folders are encrypted on the fly without any perceived performance loss. DS1815+ delivers encrypted data transmission speeds over 450 MB/s reading and 190 MB/s writing.

Quad LAN ports for failover and Link Aggregation support
Equipped with four Ethernet ports featuring failover and Link Aggregation support, DS1815+ ensures continual network uptime even if LAN connection malfunction occurs on one port, reducing the chance of service disruption and costly downtime. Link Aggregation improves connection speeds beyond the limits of a single network cable or port. Features Robust scalability up to 108TB
As your data storage needs grow, DS1815+ can be connected to dedicated DX513 expansion units2 for additional storage on the fly, growing capacity with minimal effort. With two DX513 expansion units connected through specially designed eSATA connectors, raw capacity can be as high as 108TB

Easy installation, hassle-free maintenance
Easy installation and hot-swappable hard drive support ensures easy maintenance and continuous service uptime should a hard drive need replacement. In addition, DS1815+ incorporates a passive cooling design to reduce dependency on the dedicated processor cooling fan, thus mitigating any critical point of failure. When the system detects a fan failure, the built-in redundancy mechanism ensures continuous operation until the replacement fan arrives.

USB 3.0 and eSATA ensure speedy transfers to external storage
DS1815+ boasts USB 3.0 and eSATA ports to connect to various kinds of external storage devices, while ensuring fast and efficient file transfer speeds. Support for USB 3.0 offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0), meaning it takes less time to transfer data to external hard drives, while also consuming less power.

Award winning OS - DiskStation Manager
Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) is a sleek, browser-based operating system running on every DiskStation and RackStation, which makes managing your Synology NAS a breeze. Featuring an intuitive user interface, DSM makes accessing and sharing your data smarter and simpler. Synology's Package Center lets you download and install useful add-on packages designed specifically for individual or business needs, meaning you can enjoy more entertainment in your life or better productivity at work.

Seamless storage solution for virtualization environments
DS1815+ provides seamless storage solutions for virtualization environments, including VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V. With VMware vSphere® 5 & VAAI integration, DS1815+ helps offload specific storage operations and optimizes computation power in VMware environments. Windows ODX support speeds up data manipulation as the data transfer is offloaded. iSCSI also lets SMB users consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.

Fit into business environments easily
With the support of Windows AD, LDAP, and Domain Trust, DS1815+ enables seamless account integration. The User Home feature can automatically create a "home" folder for every user account to minimize the administrator's effort in repeatedly creating "home" folders for all accounts. Windows ACL support on DS1815+ allows IT administrators to fine tune access controls and set up privileges to files and folders on DS1815+ through the familiar Windows user interface. With compatibility for major protocols, DS1815+ can eliminate server configuration overhead and enhance IT administrators’ efficiency.

Optimize storage management
With Synology's Storage Manager, DS1815+ allows for flexible storage deployment and utilization. You can optimize RAID configuration with Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) while providing redundant data protection. Other features such as multiple volumes on single RAID and Global Hot Spare also greatly enhance management efficiency and fit deployment of any kind.

8 Bay Synology DS1815+ Desktop Scalable NAS, Quad Core, USB3 x 4, eSATA x 2 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRILLIANT. BRILLIANT. BRILLIANT. Very quick, simple to setup and the software is easy to use even for networking novice. Really pleased with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Minor faults but generally a good product After a while mine started to vibrate which was coming from the HDD trays, pushing them lightly would stop the vibration but it would come back after a short while. Aside from that it was a good product that worked well, good transfer speeds and even worked well as a plex server. I did have another issue where it wouldn't update due to saying not enough space even though there was plenty. Close to being a great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly versatile, with expansion galore. Top quality product, with ample expandability. Highly recommended for a small office or for photo / video editors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expensive, noisey misleading performance claims First of all the unit ships with 2Gb of RAM and can be upgraded by adding another 4Gb BUT Synology does not officially support third party memory and does not publish a list of compatible memory parts - so how do you upgrade the NAS? Answer = pot-luck! I contacted Synology support and that was the outcome. Not great for such an expensive unit. Mine has also developed a very loud cooling fan 'whine' and the fan speed profile adjustment does not seem to work one way or another. Synology's performance claims too cost me unnecessary expense. I thought, great the unit has 4 x 1Gbps LAN ports that support Link Aggregation, I know I'll buy a switch that supports LACP / Port Trunking and a Quad port Gigabit NIC for my PC and get a 4Gbps pipe to the NAS box... WRONG! The DS1815+ Does indeed support a Dynamic Link Aggregation but this only allows it to service a high work load environment where there are many incoming requests from multiple clients on the same subnet but it does not support SLA (Static Link Aggregation) which is what would be needed for a 'fatter' pipe to my single client PC. So I bought an expensive Quad port Enterprise NIC and Switch for nothing... None of the above relating to the memory issue or the misleading performance data is present on the official Synology product page. I eventually found a RAM module that worked but only after buying another part that didn't and while I was able to max out a single 1Gbps connection to the DS1815+ I got nothing like the boasted max read and write speeds of 400+MB/s. I would not recommend this product.
