Storage specialists Synology Inc. are today announcing the launch of the DiskStation DS1520+ storage system for home and small business environments. This 5-bay NAS solution has been built to excel in home office and small business environments, facilitating the backup of multimedia files and other important data whilst offering the scalability necessary for creating a versatile private cloud.

The DS1520+ is a significant update over the DS1019+, with improvements to overall performance and particular attention paid to website responsiveness. Compute tasks benefit from a more powerful CPU - up 20% relative to the previous iteration - and five internal 3.5" bays will typically be more than enough to cater to personal storage needs.

Business and professional environments with greater storage requirements can scale the available bays up to fifteen and overall storage capacity to a massive 240TB. Two DX517 units can be purchased separately for this purpose.
