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.

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.
