Announcing the Synology® DS1813+: Affordable Advanced Storage for Creative Professionals

Bellevue, Washington––May 28, 2013––Hot on the heals of the new five-bay DS1513+, Synology America Corp. is pleased to introduce the DS1813+, the latest high-capacity, eight-bay, network attached storage (NAS). Designed for increased performance, reliability, and ease of use, the DS1813+ is an excellent addition to a creative workflow; by building on a centralized resource for accessing, editing, and sharing data.
The DS1813+ provides eight screw-less drive bays, which support both 3.5" and 2.5" mechanical or SSDs. That equates to roughly 32TB of raw storage capacity in the head-unit alone for creative pros to start with. By adding two DX513 expansion units, the DS1813+ can be grown out to 18 total bays, offering up to 72TB of raw data and your choice of either Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) or classic RAID.
The DS1813+ comes with four Gigabit NICs, which bring powerful enterprise storage options like Synology High Availability, which helps to minimize downtime in the event of node failure by failing over to a mirrored DS1813+.
Furthermore, when utilizing all four NICs for throughput, with link aggregation, the DS1813+ can achieve read speeds of over 350 MB/Sec, and write speeds exceeding 200 MB/Sec. Additional storage and networking options such as: iSCSI, and VPN, make working with media-assets convenient, whether working on-site, or out on location.
The DS1813+ makes it easy for users to streamline their workflow by centralizing active and archival media. The unit is equipped with two USB 3.0 ports which can be used to connect external drives to the DiskStation as backup storage, or be made network accessible as independent volumes.
The DS1813+ runs the latest version of Synology's easy to use operating system, DiskStation Manager 4.2 (DSM 4.2). DSM makes access, and organization of data-assets easy. With only a few clicks in Synology’s Quick Connect control panel: photos, video, music, and documents can be remotely managed on mobile devices.

Other notable features include:
• Cloud Station and WebDAV enable synchronization• Fail over fan system• Refined Package Center Integrated in DSM
