The New Synology DS1821+ NAS Drive for 2020​


Good News! The DS1821+ NAS has now been found to be ‘a thing’ and I am pleased to say that all our supposition about the hardware seems to be true! This information arrives shortly after our reviews of the Synology DS1621xs+ and DS1621+ NAS (released in mid-October 2020), we today want to discuss a new Synology 8-Bay NAS that has been revealed, the Synology DS1821+ NAS is a device that a lot of users have been waiting on, as it serves as a neat middle-ground for many between robust storage for a RAID6/SHR-2 environment, whilst still having a decent hardware base to work with. This new diskstation is one that we kind of expected but still managed to surprise us in a number of key ways (yes, that CPU again, but also because we thought we saw the last of the new Synology hardware in 2020) and not only a very solid follow up to the DS1819+ in a few key ways, but also makes it quite an interesting comparison against the DS1621+ too, given that similar architecture. Arriving in the familiar 8-Bay metal chassis seen in the previous generation, supporting DSM 6.2 (as well as DSM 7 no doubt – keep an eye open for the public beta) and bringing a number of the more modern conventions of Synology in 2020/2021 in terms of upgradability, improved internal caching improvements, there is also a couple of new things to look out for. The DS18xx+ range has always been a long-running staple in what was always widely regarded as the Intel Atom/Denverton series (such as the DS16xx+, DS24xx+, RS12xx+, etc) and it will be interesting to see if this new AMD NAS drive will represent a new hardware convention across these devices in follow up generations in the 2020/2021 series moving forward. We have already seen lots of improvement in the DS1621+ testing and performance since it’s review last month, and it compared favorably with its own predecessor. So, let’s take a look at the brand new Synology DS1821+ NAS and see if it deserves your data in 2020.
