Synology DX510 is an expansion unit to increase the capacity of Synology DS1010+ and DS710+ on the fly. When Synology DS1010+ or DS710+ is running out of capacity, Synology DX510 scales up its capacity by an additional 5 hard drives immediately. RAID volume on Synology DiskStation can be expanded directly without having to reformat existing hard drives, ensuring Synology DiskStation continues its service during the capacity expansion. When created as a separate volume, Synology DX510 provides a great solution for backing up Synology DiskStation. Synology DX510 is connected to Synology DiskStation using an eSATA cable with custom-designed connectors on both ends, ensuring a reliable connection and maximum throughput. eSATA 3.0 Gb/sec definition allows hard drives in the connected Synology DX510 to operate as they’re the internal ones of the Synology DiskStation.
