Both DS1517+ and DS1817+ support connecting up to two DX517 expansion units, allowing users to add up to 10 additional drive bays and scale up storage capacity on-the-fly . The RAID volume can be expanded without having to reformat the existing hard drives, ensuring seamless capacity expansion without downtime.
