ioSafe product comparison

Synology 1520+ and ioSafe

Do you think ioSafe will update there 1018+ NAS with this new 1020+ from Synology in the near future given it’s similar 5 bay configuration and size should be same?

As you may remember my next upgrade here is to add a ioSafe system to make our data catastrophe proof. In fact when researching the ioSafe 1019+ is how I found your website.

I also wonder if I should just go with a ioSafe Duo Raid 1or Duo Pro. for less money. I can’t find what the differences are between the Duo Pro and Duo Raid 1…

The difference is Advanced Replacement service between Pro and non-pro.

There is no 1020+ released yet, but once it becomes available it will eventually make its way into Iosafe series. It will not be much different to DS1019+.

I have added iosafe product comparison table.
