    I did win a Synology DS710+ & DX510 by filling out a survey, after having read an official tweet of Synology Inc.(http://twitter.com/Synology) about the contest 3 weeks ago. The funny part is that I bought a Synology DS1010+ (704CHF/692$) and 4TB of disk (280CHF/275$) at the same time…

    On the picture above, this is my current small datacenter :-)

    • DS 408 has four disks of  1TB in RAID5, so a volume of 2.7TB since 2008
    • DS1010+ has two disks of 2 TB in RAID1 so a volume of 1.8TB since 2008
    • I have others disks 3.5TB not represented in my custom NAS that will soon be retired…

    The DS 510 will perfectly complete my existing DS1010+, the DS710+ will be assigned to some other tasks. Synology is really developing high-performance, reliable, versatile, and environmentally-friendly Network Attached Storage products. I did never had any problems, and all software updates were working as expected. They are by far the best NAS on the market with a lot of software functionalities thanks to a Linux kernel.

    Synology DX510


    Expansion Unit for Increasing Capacity of the Synology DiskStation DS710+ or DS1010+. When the storage capacity of the Synology DS710+/DS1010+ is nearing its limits, it can easily be expanded by the Synology DX510. The Synology DX510 securely connects to the Synology DS710+/DS1010+ via an eSATA cable of specially-designed connectors on both ends to ensure maximum throughput. The Synology DX510 can directly expand the existing storage on the Synology DS710+ to a maximum 14 TB volume.
