Synology DS1513+ Released

DS1513+The Synology DS1512 has been a popular choice for many home labs in recent years. I hoped that the company’s raft of recent product updates would reach this model eventually. Well my wish was granted as Synology have announced the DS1513+.

There are a few modifications to note. The one that stands out the most at first glance is the doubling of LAN¬†capability.¬† The DS1513+ boasts no fewer than 4 RJ45 ports. That does seem like quite a lot. It does open up some interesting possibilities though…

The full specifications for the DS1513+ can be found here.

  1. I agree with your assessment of the new DS1513+ would love to see some VMware-specific benchmarks. I think that the 2 additional network ports and very high read/write speeds are going to be great for home labs. I just wonder if I have enough hosts (i.e. CPU and memory) to saturate all of the disk I/O available on one of these…

    • I know that I don’t! Particularly if you were to pop some SSDs in there…

      This changes my outlook on lab storage a little (and scuppers a few posts that I was in the middle of writing).
