This B&H Kit combines the Synology DiskStation DS1815+ 8-Bay NAS Server with 8 x 2TB internal hard drives for a total capacity of 16TB.
The DiskStation DS1815+ 8-Bay NAS Server has eight drive bays that are capable of housing either 2.5" or 3.5" SATA III and SATA II hard drives and solid state drives. This NAS is powered by a 2.4 GHz Intel Atom C2538 Quad-Core processor with an integrated AES-NI hardware encryption engine. You also benefit from 2GB (1 x 2GB) of DDR3 RAM which is expandable up to 6GB (2GB + 4GB) to help ensure smooth operation. Enhanced data throughput of 450.68 MB/s read and 429.1 MB/s write speeds make it easy to transfer large files quickly, and with link aggregation support you can rest assured the connection will remain secure.
This energy efficient NAS storage enclosure supports VMware, Citrix, and Hyper-V for virtualization environments and comes VMware vSphere 5 and VAAI integration certified. Additionally, the DS1815+ can virtually replace more complex storage setups as it offers both Windows ACL and LDAP support allowing for easy integration into existing workgroup environments. If the current data capacity offered by the DS1815+ is no longer sufficient, the NAS enclosure can be connected to dedicated expansion units to expand storage capacity up to 108TB.
The DS1815+ enclosure comes equipped with two 120 x 120 mm fans to keep everything cool. On the back you will find four Gigabit LAN ports, two USB 3.0 ports, one reset button, and two eSATA connectors making it easy to connect peripherals such as external hard drives, thumb drives, and more. The front features dedicated LED indicators to depict drive status, eight hard drive trays complete with tray locks, and one power button. Included with this kit is an accessory pack, an AC power cord, and two RJ-45 LAN cables.
