Note performance figures could vary within different environments

Business Applications
Put your data to work with the Synology’s DS1515. With Windows ACL and LDAP support, the DS1515 fits easily into any existing workgroup environment, providing detailed access control and efficient privilege settings. SMB applications including printer sharing, VPN Server, Mail Server, web server, anti-virus, and network video surveillance, allow a single Synology DS1515 to replace several traditional computing devices and help to maximize your productivity while keeping cost and effort to a minimum.
Resilient and Reliable
In addition to its enhanced performance, the DS1515 is built for reliability. Two Gigabit LAN ports provide redundancy in the event of unexpected hardware failure while hot swappable drives also help to minimize system downtime during drive replacement.

Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses; however, The Synology High Availability (SHA) can ensure a seamless transition between clustered servers in the event of server failure with minimal impact to applications, thus decreasing the risk of unexpected interruptions and costly downtime.

Enhanced Flexibility
The DS1515 can be connected to dedicated expansion units for additional storage on the fly, growing capacity with minimal effort. When paired with two DX513 expansion units through specially designed eSATA connectors, raw capacity can be as high as 90TB.

Note the DS1515 supports up to two Synology DX513/DX213, sold separately

Easy Backup Solutions
To protect your critical business data, the DS1515 can become a centralized backup target for consolidating fragmented and unstructured information across your network through a range of options. Synology Hybrid RAID allows you to optimize usage and get the most out of your hard drives, while also keeping your storage safe with data redundancy. Complete backup solutions including LUN Snapshot, LUN clone and Backup and Replication minimize the impact of disasters.
Energy Efficient Design
The Synology DS1515 is designed with energy efficiency in mind. Equipped with two 80 X 80 mm fans and a smart airflow design to keep the system running cool 24/7, while its noise dampening design makes it much quieter than PC counterparts. Hard drive hibernation further reduces power consumption and operation costs.
