It comes with a quad-core 2.4Ghz processor, 2GB memory (up to 16GB), and quad gigabit ethernet ports with support for failover and link aggregation. The NAS chassis also has an option for a 10GBe add-in card, or an option for dual M.2 SATA SSDs for cache purposes. The system can scale up to 18 drives overall, with two DX517 units added on.
