Synology Announces 5-bay DiskStation DS1522+

Synology today announced the new 5-bay Synology DiskStation DS1522+, the latest compact solution in its Plus line of all-in-one storage devices. It assists users of all sizes to protect data, IT infrastructure, and physical assets professionally and securely while supporting a host of business, IT administration, and productivity applications.

“DS1522+ is a versatile solution fit for a wide range of usage needs and environments,” said Peggy Weng, product manager at Synology Inc. “The new 10GbE upgrade option plus scalability for 10 additional drives makes the DS1522+ cost-effective and a solution that can easily grow with any team.”

Compact solution, boundless possibilities
DS1522+ integrates thoroughly as the primary storage solution for smaller setups or as an edge node for multi-site deployments. Powered by DiskStation Manager (DSM) 7.1, it features robust data management capabilities, comprehensive file sharing, collaboration, and video surveillance capabilities.

Scalable up to 15 drive bays with two DX517 expansion units, a fully expanded DS1522+ can reliably host massive amounts of data while taking up minimal desktop or shelf space. A new network upgrade slot enables anytime 10GbE upgrades, while two built-in M.2 2280 NVMe slots can be used to speed up storage performance significantly.

 

 

Beyond file storage
Synology storage systems can easily be configured to become a cross-platform private cloud while still giving users complete control over their data. Synology Drive enables intuitive file management and synchronization between platforms like Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS, ensuring users’ data is accessible no matter where they are.

Synology Photos enables hobby photographers looking to manage their growing collection to quickly pull and back up media from their phones, sort and organize pictures, and make them easily shareable with robust permissions control.

Keep businesses running
Keeping business endpoints, emails, and critical data secured and backed up is more necessary than ever with continuous and emerging cybersecurity threats. The DS1522+, once set up, will automatically conduct data backup, snapshot, and replication automation to ensure files and LUNs stored on it can be backed up to other devices including cloud services.

Synology’s Active Backup Suite allows IT infrastructure, such as Windows systems, Hyper-V/VMware VMs, and Microsoft 365/Google Workspace accounts, to be safely backed up onto the DS1522+ and easily restored when needed.

Compact surveillance and application server
The DS1522+ also functions as a full-fledged video management system that provides full local data ownership. Synology’s Surveillance Station is a powerful VMS designed for businesses and is already implemented and protecting over 500,000 sites. Flexible ONVIF support and more than 8,300 validated IP cameras make deployment simple and easily suited to each location’s requirements.

Surveillance Station makes it easy to set up and manage up to 40 cameras on the DS1522+ with a modern and customizable interface. For larger or multiple building environments, add in floor plans and overlay Google Maps or OpenStreetMap for maximum situational awareness. Retain important footage and increase resiliency with support for backup recording servers, multi-device management (Central Management System), and even support for end-to-end encrypted, simultaneous dual recording to C2 Surveillance.
