High reliability with redundancy mechanisms

The four LAN ports with failover support and hot-swappable drives ensure continual service uptime should the drives need replacement or unexpected LAN failure occurs. In addition, DS2015xs CPU benefits from a passive cooling design to avoid dependency upon a dedicated processor cooling fan, thus mitigating any critical point of failure. As to its hard drive fans, when the system detects a failure, the built-in redundancy mechanism will spin up the functional fan to properly ventilate the system.

Unified storage system

DS2015xs enables businesses to cost-effectively manage multi-protocol data by integrating file-level (NAS) and block-level (SAN) storage into one unified storage system. Files can be shared across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms seamlessly with comprehensive network protocol support (CIFS/SMB, AFP, and NFS). DS2015xs provides a cost-effective iSCSI solution, allowing large scale businesses to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays. With thin provisioning available for file-level iSCSI LUN, you can maximize storage utilization by oversubscribing provisions and grow storage space as needed.

Protection by LUN backup, snapshot, and clone

DS2015xs enhances the ease of moving and copying data in a virtualized environment with the features - LUN Backup, LUN Snapshot, and LUN Clone. DS2015xs offers iSCSI LUN backup at storage level without extra charge. Synology LUN Clone and LUN Snapshot only take up 1/1000 of the original size which highly optimizes storage usage. In addition, Synology's LUN Snapshot lets you create up 256 snapshots per LUN using point-in-time technology without having any impact on system performance. With better support to servers under VMware vSphere or Windows environment, IT managers can expect guaranteed VM status and data consistency through application-consistent snapshots. Learn more

Ensuring business continuity

Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. DS2015xs offers Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former always mirrored to the latter. Shared Folder Sync can replicate data in real-time to another Synology NAS at a remote location, giving your business the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for prompt disaster recovery. With multiple LAN ports, DS2015xs also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure. Learn more

*Please refer to the SHA White Paper for more details.

Secure your data

DS1815+ provides share-level AES 256-bit encryption to block off unauthorized access attempts. Once you create and encrypt a shared folder, people without the encryption key will not be able to use the encrypted data even if they remove the hard drives from your DS1815+ and mount it on their device. 2-Step verification gives an extra layer of protection as 6-digit one-time code sending to your mobile device is required for login. In addition, DS1815+ provides other security add-ons, such as IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention. These enhancements ensures a secure DSM environment.
