Synology-Synology-DS1513-5x-3.5-SATA-4x-GigabitToday, Synology announced a new NAS. The DS1513+. It’s the big brother of the DS713+ I’ve bought a while ago. This new NAS has 5 disk-bays. I see it’s already available for order in several shops. Compered to the smaller DS713+ I use in my VMware home lab, the writing speed is more than doubled. Where the DS713+ specs mention ~135 MB/sec writing speed, the DS1513+ specs mention ~350 MB/sec., of ourse, if using both gigabit links in a trunk.

The other good thing is that Synology now says the unit has upgradable memory. That’s good to know. What a discussions we had with the DS713+. Almost 50 people commented on the article I’ve wrote about this unit.

Let’s see if i buy this unit later on. No need for space as we speak…
