ioSafe Announces the 1515+ NAS
A high-performance ruggedized NAS optimized for on-premise data security, automatic failover and recovery.
Auburn, Calif., January 5, 2015 – ioSafe today announced the availability of the ioSafe 1515+: a fire and water-resistant 5-bay expandable NAS powered by Synology’s award-winning DiskStation Manager operating system.
“The new ioSafe 1515+ is simply the most capable product we’ve ever built. We continue our partnership with Synology to deliver our most technologically advanced product ever.” said Robb Moore, ioSafe CEO. “Along with our unmatched physical protection against fire and water, the latest Synology platform enables blazing hardware digital encryption at up to 448 MB/s reading and 191 MB/s writing. For even faster performance, choosing not to encrypt increases throughput to 450 MB/s reading and 396 MB/s writing.”
The 1515+ features an Intel® Atom™ processor C2000 family 2.4GHz quad-core processor which leverages Intel’s new AES-NI instruction set to provide accelerated encryption, enabling businesses to better and more comprehensively safeguard mission-critical data and to use encryption in areas where it previously was not possible.
“Primarily aimed at the Small Medium Business, the 1515+ can be used by anybody interested in protecting vulnerable data, minimizing downtime and creating private cloud environments for sharing data that isn’t susceptible to public cloud vulnerabilities” said Mr. Moore.
The 1515+ has a RAM module expandable up to 6GB, quad LAN ports supporting automatic failover and Link Aggregation and built-in redundancy, providing resiliency for mission-critical business operations. The 1515+ is deigned to expand with the need of growing companies and can be scaled up to 90TB of raw storage using N513X expansion units. With support for VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft Hyper-V, the 1515+ provides a seamless storage solution for virtualized environments.
“Our ongoing partnership with ioSafe enables us to deliver a unique and award-winning storage solution. Combining Synology’s DiskStation Manager operating system with ioSafe’s fireproofing and waterproofing technology provides customers with a solution that makes it easier than ever to both protect and manage their onsite data. The 1515+ features Intel’s new quad-core processor with hardware accelerated encryption to further security for users,” said Jason Bonoan, Marketing Director of Synology America Corp.
The 1515+ replaces the 1513+, which CRN named as their Storage Product of the Year 2014.
