Description
Expansion Unit DX1215
12-Bay Expansion Unit scales up your Synology DiskStation capacity effortlessly

Highlight
Plug-and-Use design for seamless storage space upgrade Online volume expansion SATA III 6Gb/s interface support Perfect for local backup solution Energy-saving hibernation mode Managed from Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM)
Volume Expansion & Backup
When drive capacity is running low on a Synology DiskStation, Synology DX1215 provides an easy way to immediately scale capacity by providing an additional 12 drive slots. A RAID volume on the Synology DiskStation can be expanded directly without having to reformat the existing drives, ensuring the Synology DiskStation continues providing services during capacity expansion.

Synology DX1215 can serve as a dedicated local backup solution for a Synology DiskStation. When created as a separate volume, the Synology DX1215 provides a great backup solution for local drives in case of system failure.

Reliable Plug-and-Use Design
DX1215 securely connects to Synology's DiskStation servers with a specially designed expansion cable, ensuring easy connection and maximum data throughput. The 6Gb/s connection speed allows the drives in the connected Synology DX1215 to operate as the internal ones of Synology DiskStation.

Green & Easy to Manage
Hibernation mode can be manually configured to start automatically when the system has been inactive for a period of time. This not only saves energy but also extends the lifespan of hard drives. DX1215 will also smartly power on/off with the attached DiskStation, so no user intervention is needed to keep this system running smartly and efficiently.

DX1215 comes with a fast detachable fan module with two 120 X 120mm fans and screwless drive trays, making system components replacement fast and tool-free.

Synology NAS Expansion DX1215 reviews


01/11/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
What is the maximum storage DX1215 NAS can handle?
It is better to ask SPAN for free compatibility checks. But as today you could fill it with 12X 18TB Seagate Ironwolf. This would give you a total raw storage of 216TB
31/10/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can I use any drives with this NAS?
Yes, but we would recommend to use WD Red or Seagate Ironwolf. They consume less energy and generate less vibration and noise.
30/10/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can I add a 2TB HDD and a 2nd one later with RAID1?
Yes, you can migrate from Basic single disk to RAID 1
29/10/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Can I upgrade the RAM on this NAS?
Yes, it will work with Samsung, WD or Seagate SSD. In fact this will improve the internal speed and make apps run faster.
28/10/2020 | Guest | GB Flag |
Is this enclosure suitable for a SSD - such as Samsung EVO SATA III SSD
