Synology DS215+

Robust NAS, unparalleled productivity

DS215+ is an all-in-one 2-bay NAS server offering high performance, energy efficiency, and complete business features in a network attached storage solution. Designed for multitasking applications, DS215+ helps small and medium businesses centralize backup, protect critical assets, and share files quickly and efficiently.

Dual-core CPU brings high performance

With dual-core CPU and Link Aggregation enabled, DS215+ delivers superior performance over 209 MB/s reading and 139 MB/s writing speed under RAID1 configuration in a Windows® environment1, while the 1GB RAM significantly increases DS215+'s multitasking power.

Hardware encryption engine enhances encrypted files transfer speeds

DS215+ is equipped with an encryption engine which offloads the encryption calculation tasks from the main CPU. Thus, the CPU is free for other important tasks, producing a considerable increase in throughput. DS215+ delivers encrypted data transmission speeds twice as fast as its predecessor - delivering an average of over 145 MB/s reading and 71 MB/s writing.

Dual LAN with failover and Link Aggregation support

Equipped with two Gigabit LAN ports featuring failover and Link Aggregation support, DS215+ ensures continual network service in case one LAN connection fails, and enhances connection speeds beyond the limits of a single cable or port. By supporting Adaptive Load Balancing, DS215+ allows you to benefit from failover and load balancing without a pricey switch. Active-standby, 802.3ad dynamic, and Balanced XOR are supported as well.

USB 3.0 and eSATA ensure speedy transfers to external storage

DS215+ boasts USB 3.0 and eSATA ports to connect to various kinds of external storage devices, while ensuring fast and efficient file transfer speeds. USB 3.0 support offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps (about 10 times faster than USB 2.0), taking less time to transfer data to external hard drives and reducing power consumption.

Product Description

Easy hard drive installation and hot-swappable support

For friendly and effortless hard drive installation, DS215+ features screwless drive bay design and hot-swappable support, allowing users to install 3.5″ hard drives without a screwdriver. Installing and replacing drives is easier than ever.

The most compatible sharing

Enjoy seamless files sharing across Windows®, Mac®, and Linux®platforms as DS215+ offers comprehensive network protocol support including FTP, SMB2, AFP, NFS and WebDAV.
