Synology has announced a series of innovations, helping businesses effectively manage exponential data growth. At the core of the data management platform lies the new DiskStation Manager (DSM) 7.0 operating system, which streamlines on-premises storage management, cloud-based monitoring and issue prevention, and native hybrid cloud storage capabilities.

“In the first half of 2019, overall we boost up a 50%+ growth, and 80%+ growth of enterprise solutions in India. Synology has been managing data for more than 6 million homes and businesses worldwide, which is remarkable not only in the storage industry but also in the whole data management market,” said Mike Shay, India Business Head, Synology. “With a proven history of transforming the way users manage data, we are committed to provide data management solutions that empower users with smart insights and cloud connectivity.”

DSM7.0 key features:

24/7 server monitoring and issue prevention with Active Insight

Active Insight is Synology’s first cloud-based monitoring and issue prevention service, offering:

  • Predict & prevent: proactively alerts you to anomalies in any given servers as they happen and provides detailed remediation advice, reducing risks before they lead to actual damages.
  • Central monitoring: displays real-time and historical trends of server performance and system health of all users’ Synology NAS on a single pane of glass, allowing administrators to quickly identify bottlenecks or under-utilized assets.

Native hybrid cloud storage with Hybrid Share

Synology C2, the company’s own public cloud service, is currently protecting the backup data of more than 28,000 business and personal users. With the new Hybrid Share, users can now use the local NAS to mount Hybrid Share to quickly expand the storage space to C2 public cloud, achieving a highly scalable, and pay as you go storage space and additionally achieve:

  • Disaster Recovery: configurations can be restored to a new NAS in minutes in the event of disaster, immediately resuming access to all shared folders on C2.
  • Multi-site file sharing: offices in different locations can connect to the same shared folders on C2, with each NAS caching only the files they need. This dramatically reduces the bandwidth and storage space required.
