Synology: New OS For Multiple Storage Devices And The Cloud

Bellevue, Wash.-based Synology America previewed its DSM 5.0, a new version of its DiskStation Manager operating system, which can be used to manage multiple Synology DiskStation and RackStation devices and tie them to a storage cloud.

DSM 5.0 features QuickConnect, which allows fast creation of a storage volume that can be accessed remotely via browser or iOS, Android or Windows Phone apps. It interfaces with Synology's Cloud Station, a real-time private cloud storage and cross-device synchronization technology, without recurring fees. This allows users to sync between multiple DiskStations and RackStations.

DSM 5.0 features hybrid cloud syncing with Google Drive and Dropbox, scale-out storage cluster to expand to petabytes of data, central management, and data protection including snapshot manager.
