Synology today announced the imminent release of DiskStation Manager (DSM) 7.0 and a massive expansion of the C2 platform with four new cloud services.
Focusing on enhancing security, system management capabilities, and improving data collaboration, DSM 7.0 is a large step forward for Synology’s NAS and SAN product lines. Further, Synology is rolling out both hybrid and cloud-only products for C2, adding a new password manager, directory as a service, cloud backup, and secure file sharing solutions. Synology is also focusing on opening a new data center location to expand its C2 services in the Asia Pacific region later this year.
Close to the source, how Synology edge solutions solve data management challenges
“Large amounts of unstructured data is constantly being generated at exponential rates,” said Philip Wong, Synology CEO and Founder. “Traditional centralized storage deployments can no longer keep up with ever-increasing bandwidth and performance demands. Edge cloud products, like Synology’s storage management lineup, are one of the fastest-growing solutions in the market today because they uniquely address the challenges that modern businesses meet.”
Over eight million of Synology’s data management solutions have been deployed worldwide1, each powered by the DSM operating system. As the world’s largest NAS OS, DSM uniquely combines storage interoperability, backup and data protection capabilities, and robust synchronization and collaboration solutions together to address increasingly distributed workplaces and sources of data. Synology-developed add-ons, such as Synology Drive and Active Backup suite, feature more than six million monthly downloads.
Launching at the same time as the software update are brand new hybrid-cloud services called Hybrid Share and Active Insight. Hybrid Share combines Synology’s C2 storage flexibility with on-premise solutions, and allows users to synchronize files so important data is always available. Active Insight is a large-scale device monitoring and diagnostics solution that will allow IT admins to view all devices from a cloud-based management system. Additionally, software improvements include support for up to 1 PB volumes and security improvements in the form of Secure SignIn. This brand-new authentication system makes two-factor effortless and straightforward to use.
C2 new solutions & data center
Launching later this year are new cloud solutions from Synology: C2 Identity, C2 Backup, C2 Password, and C2 Transfer. C2 Identity is a hybrid-cloud directory as a service to simplify cross-site domain management,3 while the remaining are standalone solutions that address modern businesses’ needs to protect passwords, share sensitive files, and back up any endpoints and common SaaS cloud services.
Update: On July 20th, Synology NAS devices should receive the first full version of the DSM 7.0 announced at the end of last year. New functionalities, for example safer disk swaps, remote repair and two-factor authentication via a mobile app, are provided to the operating system. The following list of supported devices is complete for all models from the 13 series:
