Synology logoSynology has announced a new expandable Intel-based five-bay NAS.

The DS1513+ is similar to Synology's older DS1512+, with both based on 2.13 GHz Intel Atom D2700 CPUs. The DS1513+'s key advantages over the DS1512+ are four Gigabit Ethernet ports vs. two and 2 GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 4 GB) vs. 1 GB (expandable to 3 GB). Both have two USB 3.0, four USB 2.0 and two eSATA ports.

Using 4 TB drives, the base NAS supports up to 20 TB of raw capacity that can be expanded to a to 60 TB total with two DX513 expansion units that connect via eSATA.
