Synology DS1517+ overview

  • 1Description

The DiskStation DS1517+ 5-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology is optimized for encryption and intensive tasks. It comes equipped with five drive bays that are capable of natively supporting 3.5" and 2.5" SATA hard drives, as well as 2.5" SATA SSDs. Using its five drive bays, this NAS will allow you to store and share a large number of files, including videos, music, photos, and documents with up to 2048 users. For those who wish to increase the overall capacity of their DS1517+, it can be paired with two DX517 expansion units.

The DS1517+ runs on Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) OS, which is a browser-based operating system which helps to simplify managing your Synology NAS. Its CPU is an Intel Atom C2538 Quad-Core that runs at 2.4 GHz and its 8GB of DDR3 RAM allows frequently used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving sequential read speeds of up to 1165 MB/s and features four USB 3.0 Type-A ports and two eSATA ports which allow it to be connected to your system. Internet connectivity is achieved via the included four Gigabit Ethernet ports, each of which features link aggregation and failover support, allowing your stored data to be shared with users throughout the network.

For those who require RAID support, the DS1517+ supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10, as well Synology Hybrid RAID and Basic RAID, each of which offers performance, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available, allowing each drive bay to be individually utilized. For system expansion, the RAM may be upgraded to 16GB using two 8GB modules, and a PCIe 2.0 x8 slot supports either a dual M.2 SSD adapter card or a 10GbE NIC.

The DiskStation DS1517+ operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, an AC power cord, and two Ethernet cables. It is certified with Windows Server 2012 and Server 2012 R2, in addition to being WMware and Citrix-ready, and OpenStack-compatible.

    Synology DS1517+ reviews

    DiskStation DS1517+ 5-Bay NAS Enclosure is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mega storage capacity for all of your photos Synology is one of the big players in NAS storage and their units are rock solid with good performance. I set two of these up in RAID 5 with five 8TB enterprise class drives - one primary, one backup and all of my photos reside there now. Setup of the first unit was very easy, I ran into a bit of a snag on the second uunit due to server naming conventions, they can not have the same name despite being located at two different IP addresses. This would not have been a problem had Synology included some documentation. the documentation that is included in the box is nothing more than an almost useless quick start guide. Everything must be searched for online. At this price point I would expect complete documentation in the box, thus the 4 star rating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Synology product purchase and I couldn't be happier! It is incredibly intuitive and set up for the intermediate network wanna be that I am. I use this to store files from two desktops and two laptops in our home. (all Apple products by the way.) It works great with Time Machine and Dropbox. No more worries about running out of space or having 20 years of digital memories at risk without two stage backup. I enthusiastically recommend this product. It meets all of my requirements today and believe I have only scratched the surface.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far, so good..... This is a solid unit, fairly easy to setup and manage, with plenty of features. The documentation can be a bit challenging, and it's not cheap (particularly to fully populate it), but so far these are my only gripes.
    Date published: 2018-04-18
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It stopped working after a power was turned off in our offic It just stopped working after the power off for maintenance in our office. We have lots of qnaps and a 1 Synology currently in use in our office and after the power went off all the qnaps work and the sinology cannot be accessed. The power light keeps flashing and the LAN lights don’t light up at all. Find.synology.com cannot find it at all, nor can Synology assistant. At first I thought this might be due to the fact that find.synology.com never worked very well and often could not find the sinology even when it was working, but the LAN lights are not even lighting up so I think the thing is either broken or so badly crashed that multiple restarts have not resulted in being able to use access device. All I get is a flashing power light. We barly use the Synology in our office and we come across this problem yet I push our qnaps to the limit and never encounter this problem. Someone had told me that Synology’s implementation of BTRFS had some stability issues and I did not think too much of it at first, but now I wonder. I don’t know for sure what went wrong but I expected better.
