The unit is powered by an unspecified 1.8GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of DDR2 RAM, expandable to 3GB, while the companyís DiskStation Manager 3.0 runs the show from the software side. The latter boasts features like multi-tasking, multimedia streaming, and Time-Machine-like back-up options. Other features include enhanced iSCSI support, four USB 2.0 and two eSATA ports, DLNA/UPnP support for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, comprehensive audio, video and image file format compatibility, and free iPhone and Android apps.

With a price tag of around $900 itís not particularly intended for home use but rather small and medium businesses. The DS1511+ is available now and comes with 3-year warranty and technical support.
