Powered by the innovative Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM), DS1817 comes fully-equipped with applications and features designed specifically for growing businesses:

  • Windows® AD and LDAP support allow easy integration with existing business directory services without recreating user accounts.
  • Windows ACL support provides fine-grained access control and efficient privilege settings, allowing DS1817 to fit seamlessly into current infrastructure.

Virtualisation Ready
DS1817 provides seamless storage solutions for virtualisation environments, including VMware, Citrix, Hyper-V, and OpenStack. With VMware vSphere 6 and VAAI integration certified, DS1817 helps offload specific storage operations and optimises computation power for unparalleled performance and efficiency in VMware environments. As the centralised storage of a virtual environment, DS1817 enables virtual machine migration, allowing movement from server to server whilst eliminating service downtime and disruption to users. Windows Offloaded Data Transfer (ODX) and Synology Advanced LUN support greatly improve the efficiency of massive data transfer and migration. With OpenStack support, DS1817 can be used as a block-based storage component for servers complying with the Cinder API.

Effective Synchronisation & Backup Solution
DS1817 can serve as a centralised backup destination, making it easy to create a personal private cloud. Cloud Sync keeps your Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Baidu, and Box storages in sync with DS1817 at home. Cloud Station Suite allows you to sync files among multiple devices, including Windows PC, Mac, Linux, and Android/iOS tablets and phones, effortlessly keeping everything up-to-date. With block-level incremental backup and cross-version deduplication, Synology Hyper Backup provides multi-version backup with optimised storage utilisation and allows data to be backed up to multiple destinations, including local shared folders, external hard drives, network shared folders, rsync servers, and public cloud services.

24/7 Smart Security Solution
Featuring user-friendly video management tools and an intuitive desktop-like interface, Synology Surveillance Station is a reliable private-security solution that can support multiple IP cameras connected to DS1817. Surveillance Station features optimised live view together with streamlined real-time monitoring. Its powerful analytics, such as motion detection and alert notification, allow you to stay informed of any suspicious activity with triggers sent via SMS, e-mail, and DS cam mobile application.

Reliability & Availability
The 10GBASE-T and 1GBASE-T LAN ports of DS1817 support failover and Link Aggregation, and the LAN ports are resilient against unexpected network or cable failure. Hot swappable drives minimise system downtime by allowing simplified and rapid drive replacement. Uninterrupted availability is a critical goal for all businesses. Synology High Availability (SHA) ensures seamless transition between clustered servers in the event of unexpected disasters and ensures that your services remain online. Optional 5-year warranty is available in select regions.
