DS1513+: Scalable NAS for SMB growing demands

With its superior performance, scalability, resilience, and comprehensive features, Synology® DS1513+ is the ideal storage solution for your growing SMB. The DS1513+ can help to simplify data management, providing a centralized destination for storage, backup, and sharing - with minimal setup and the freedom to expand capacity at any time. The DS1513+ is backed by Synology's 3-year limited warranty.

  • 202.34 MB/sec Writing, 350.94MB/sec Reading
  • Four LAN Ports with Link Aggregation Support
  • Scale Up to 60TB with Synology DX513
  • Expandable RAM Module (Up to 4GB)
  • CPU Passive Cooling Technology & System Fan Redundancy
  • VMware®, Citrix®, Microsoft® Hyper-V® Ready
  • High Availability and Automatic Failover by SHA
  • Running on Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM)

Superior Performance

The Synology DS1513+ is built for speed. With dual core CPU and expandable RAM capacity, the DS1513+ is ideal for the mission critical tasks of SMBs as well as the most intensive applications from data-encryption to video-transcoding. With link aggregation, Synology DS1513+ can deliver up to an average 350.94 MB/sec reading and 202.34 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment.1

Resilient and Reliable

In addition to superior performance, the DS1513+ is built for reliability. Four LAN ports provide redundancy in the event of unexpected hardware failure while hot swappable drives also help to minimize system downtime during drive replacement. Furthermore, passive cooling technology eliminates the dependency upon a dedicated processor cooling fan. Should a fan fail, built-in redundancy mechanisms will spin up functional fan(s) to improve ventilation.

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

Unparalleled Flexibility

As your data storage needs grow, Synology's DS1513+ can grow with you. The DS1513+ can be connected to dedicated expansion units for additional storage on the fly, growing capacity with minimal effort. When paired with two DX513 expansion units1 through specially designed eSATA connectors, raw capacity can be as high as 60 TB.

Feature-Rich Business Applications

Put your data to work with Synology's DS1513+. With Windows ACL and LDAP support DS1513+ fits easily into any existing workgroup environment, providing detailed access control and efficient privilege settings. A wealth of SMB applications including printer sharing, VPN server, ERP software, mail server, web server, anti-virus, and network video surveillance, allows a single Synology DS1513+ to replace several pieces of traditional hardware and helps to maximize your productivity while keeping cost and effort to a minimum.

Easy Backup Solutions

To protect your critical business data, DS1513+ can become a centralized backup target for consolidating fragmented and unstructured information across your network through a range of options. PC users can backup to DS1513+ with Synology's Data Replicator, while DS1513+ also fully supports Mac OS X®'s native Apple® Time Machine®. Synology's own backup wizard can back up information to another Synology NAS or any rsync server, with the option of using an encrypted connection, or to an external hard drive via USB 3.0 or eSATA. The wizard can also back up your information to the cloud, including Amazon® S3, Glacier, and STRATO HiDrive.

iSCSI and Virtualization Ready

With the iSCSI support in DSM, the Synology DS1513+ provides a seamless storage solution for virtualization servers, such as VMware, Hyper-V, and Citrix.It is the ideal alternative to SAN solution for businesses. Affordable and costeffective,iSCSI allows SMB users to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts with the illusion of locally-attached disks.

Energy Efficient Design

Synology DiskStation are designed and developed with energy efficiency in mind. Compared with the average PC counterparts, Synology DS1513+ consumes only 51 watts in operation. Wake on LAN/WAN and scheduled power on/off features can further reduce power consumption and operation costs. HDD hibernation can be configured to take effect automatically when the system has been inactive for a specified period of time to save energy and extend hard disk life. All Synology products are produced with RoHS compliant parts and packed with recyclable packing materials. Synology acknowledges the responsibility of a global citizen and works continually to reduce the environmental impact of every product.
