Synology America Corp. has released its latest generation of network video recorder (NVR), the DS1511+, which is the successor to Synology’s “flagship” NVR, the DS1010+, which is also known as the “DiskStation,” the company says in a written statement.

“The DS1511+ also includes Surveillance Station 5, turning it into an affordable NVR solution quickly, says Franklin Hua, a technical marketing manager at Synology America, a multinational corporation with offices in Redmond, Wash. Surveillance Station 5 offers a unified interface for multiple cameras, and supports over 700 models of IP camera, he adds.

The new five-bay network-attached storage (NAS) system will accept up to two DX510 expansion units for a total of up to 15 drives. Using 3 terabyte (TB) drives yields up to 45TB of storage, according to Synology.

In addition, the DiskStation provides a reliable solution for the standard NAS roles such as easy file sharing, scheduled backups, remote access and centralized management, Hua says. Additional services can also be enabled, such as a built-in web server capable of hosting up to 30 sites at once, or an add-on e-mail server. Remote access has been further enhanced with apps available for free on Android and iPhone smartphone platforms. “The DS1511+ is the most scalable and full-featured NAS of its class,” he says.
