Synology DS1817 Overview

The DiskStation DS1817 8-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology is a powerful all-in-one private cloud solution. It comes equipped with eight 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 eight 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 DS1817, it can be paired with two DX517 expansion units.

The DS1817 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 Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-314 Quad-Core that runs at 1.7 GHz and its 4GB of DDR3L RAM allows frequently-used files and applications to be quickly accessed. The NAS is capable of achieving sequential read speeds of up to 1577 MB/s and features two 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 two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports and two 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 DS1817 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 8GB using two 4GB modules.

The DiskStation DS1817 is certified with Windows Server 2012 and Server 2012 R2, in addition to being WMware and Citrix-ready, and OpenStack-compatible. It operates on 100-240 VAC at 50/60 Hz and includes an accessory pack, an AC power cord, and two Ethernet cables. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year hardware warranty.

If i have a 5 bay DS1515+ configured in Raid 5, can i move my disks to this Diskstation without data loss?
Asked by: The
Good luck with the tech support. They are incredibly bad. Every time I call they tell me to watch a tutorial or read the instructions. I'm wondering why they are there. I'm using this as a back up to all my files- the last thing I need is to find out it wasn't set up correctly and lose files because they wouldn't help me out. Customer service is really bad.

How hard was it to configure the RAID set up with the software?
Asked by: Lorenzo
I found that this is a very complicated machine with a lot of choices to make. You better know what you are doing and not for the faint of heart. When I set up mine there were an overwhelming amount of decisions to make. If you aren't knowledgable or a tech nerd I suggest going to other devices.

Can you access the volumes on the NAS via the USB 3 ports or is that just for expansion?
Asked by: David
You won't be able to access the NAS server via the USB port. Via the USB port you can add an external hard drive. The expansion bay DX517, connects via the eSATA port.

question

Do you need to buy a switch for it?
Asked by: Anonymous
If you are planning to access it with 10GB speeds to read and write you need a 10Gb switch to connect the Diskstation and your computers. Your computers should also have 10Gb Ethernet ports or USB C to 10Gb adapters. If you only want to use it to store files and don't mind waiting a little bit longer for the files to transfer you should be ok using the included regular 1Gb ports.
