In addition to the 5 hard drive bays and quad-core processor, the DS1515 sports four bult-in Gigabit LAN ports for increased performance and availability. The DS1515 is the first 5-bay Network Attached Storage system from Synology in their value series with a quad-core processor, hardware encryption engine, and four LAN ports that can deliver link aggregation for high availability to minimize downtime.

The rack-mountable RS815 has 4 hard drive bays and is scalable for up to 48TB of storage. Its two-post installation allows for easy installation and removal for small businesses with little space and large storage needs. The RS815 can also be used by home theater enthusiasts who want to centralize their multimedia into one system that can be accessed within the house or remotely.

The hard drive bays in both the DS1515 and the RS815 are hot-swappable, allowing users to quickly and easily manage their RAID storage solution. Both NAS systems also come with Synology’s fantastic DSM (DiskStation Manager) Operating System, which is the best looking and simplest NAS Operating System I’ve ever used.
