The DiskStation DS1522+ 5-Bay NAS Enclosure from Synology provides flexible data management for homes and SOHO environments. is designed for small offices and IT enthusiasts. It is easy to scale and expand as your needs change, with optional support for up to 15 drives with two DX517 expansion units, fast networking, and NVMe SSD caching with two M.2 2280 slots.
