DataCast Fire Protection
Protects data from loss up to 1550°F for 1/2 hour per ASTM E119. ioSafe’s DataCast endothermic fire insulation technology protects your data from extreme heat. The DataCast formulation forms a chemical bond with water molecules that, at temperatures above 160°F, releases water vapor to limit the internal temperature of the unit during a fire.
HydroSafe Water Protection
Protects data from loss up to 10 feet for 72 hours. ioSafe’s HydroSafe water barrier technology is designed to protect data loss from fresh or saltwater damage, including full immersion. HydroSafe technology keeps your data dry and secure in the event of a flood, storm or other natural or man-made disaster, while still allowing heat dissipation during normal operation.

Effective backup solution The ioSafe 1515+ can serve as a centralized backup target. PC users can back up their data to the ioSafe 1515+ using Windows Backup, while Mac OS X users enjoy native Apple® Time Machine integration. You can also back up data and applications from your DioSafe 1515+ to another DiskStation, rsync servers, external drives, or even Amazon® S3 and Glacier cloud service. "Backup & Replication" allows you to schedule backup tasks and restore the server to any particular point in time, while minimizing storage consumption and processing time by saving only the specific data block that has been changed between versions. With Cloud Station, files on your PC can be backed up to DS1515+. Whenever you modify a file, the changes are backed up on the ioSafe 1515+ automatically.
High Availability - Automatic Failover Ensuring business continuity Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. the ioSafe 1515+ supports Synology High Availability (SHA) technology which combines an active and passive server into one cluster, the former always mirrored to the latter. The Heartbeat connection detects regular "heartbeats" between the two servers. If the main server encounters unexpected downtime, the passive server immediately takes over. With multiple LAN ports, the ioSafe 1515+ also ensures redundancy in the event of unexpected network failure.
Increase business productivity with cloud solutions With comprehensive cloud solutions, the ioSafe 1515+ lets you create your own cloud easily. Cloud Station is the perfect package to sync files across multiple devices with the benefit of better privacy for important data. Files can be edited in offline mode and later synced to Cloud Station, which retains up to 32 versions to avoid file overwriting. With mobile app DS cloud, any change made to a file is automatically synced to your smartphones and tablets. For distributed enterprise, Synology's 2-way sync between different DiskStations ensures employees at different locations share the same information in real-time. IT administrators can customize synchronization rules, such as avoiding syncing large files to optimize bandwidth usage.
Secure your data The ioSafe 1515+ provides share-level AES 256-bit encryption to block off unauthorized access attempts. Once you create and encrypt a shared folder, people without the encryption key will not be able to use the encrypted data even if they remove the hard drives from your the ioSafe 1515+ and mount it on their device. 2-Step verification gives an extra layer of protection as 6-digit one-time code sending to your mobile device is required for login. In addition, the ioSafe 1515+ provides other security add-ons, such as IP block & allow list, Antivirus packages, firewall, and DoS attack prevention. These enhancements ensures a secure DSM environment.
