Synology DiskStation DS715 and DS215+ NAS servers break cover

Synology has rolled out a couple new network attached storage options known as NAS servers. The new equipment includes the DiskStation DS215+ and the DiskStation DS715. The two NAS devices look very similar on the outside, but have different hardware on the inside. Both do have some similarities though with hardware encryption engines and compact designs.

The DS715 uses a quad-core processor operating at 1.4GHz and 2GB of RAM. It supports data transmission rates over 216 MB/s and write speeds of 142 MB/s with link aggregation. Encrypted data can be read at 205 MB/s thanks to the hardware encryption engine inside.

The DS215+ uses a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and has 1GB of RAM. Data read speed is 209 MB/s and write speed is 139 MB/s with Link Aggregation. The hardware encryption engine allows encrypted data to be read at 145 MB/s.

The DS715 also supports Synology High Availability for redundancy in the event of an unexpected network failure. It also has central management and hosting for 30 IP cameras operating at 900 FPS @ 720p. It can also scale to seven drives when used with a DX513 expansion unit. Both units have hot swappable drives and USB ports. Both devices are shipping globally now.
