Manager 2.3
When running out of the hard drive capacity on the Synology DiskStation, the Synology DX510 provides an easy way to
immediately scale capacity by an additional 5 hard drives. The RAID volume on the Synology DiskStation can be expanded
directly without having to reformat the existing hard drives, ensuring the Synology DiskStation continues its service during
the capacity expansion. When created as a separate volume, the Synology DX510 provides a great solution for backing up
the Synology DiskStation.
Reliable Plug-n-use Design
The Synology DX510 is connected to the Synology DiskStation using an eSATA cable with custom-designed connectors
on both ends, ensuring a reliable connection and maximum throughput. The eSATA 3.0 Gb/sec definition allows the hard
drives in the connected Synology DX510 to operate as they are the internal ones of the Synology DiskStation.
