Synology Inc. launched DiskStation DS1621xs+, redefining performance expectations in a compact tower form-factor. Pairing a quad-core Xeon processor together with ECC memory and onboard 10GbE, the DS1621xs+ raises the bar for high-performance data storage and management.

A super-fast and super-dependable micro-server

The DS1621xs+ shares a powerful Xeon processor found in some of our datacenter bound devices, but now in an 11.5L chassis.

Synology also paired it with ECC memory for maximum dependability. Together with Btrfs, comprehensive data backup options, and a stunning 3.1 GB/s seq. read and 1.8 GB/s seq. write performance, your data is in safe hands.

Small, but plenty big

Six internal 3.5″ bays enable up to 96 TB of raw storage capacity. When that’s not enough, bump that up to 256 TB, on-demand, by adding on two additional DX517 expansion units for a total of 16 drives.

The DS1621xs+ also includes two M.2 2280 slots for blazing-fast NVMe cache so that you can make your storage go over 20X faster without sacrificing any bays.

10X faster networking for serious work

Finish content creation projects, big backup tasks, and anything that needs fast file transfers quicker with 10GbE, built-in.
