DSM6 - Synology Cloud & File Syncing
Friday, 08 July 2016 10:00

Cloud & File Syncing

The majority of people now switch between multiple devices every day, resulting in a dramatic increase in the popularity of cloud storage. Sometimes our entire productive life — working reports, notes, references — relies on the cloud, meaning we need a cost-efficient, high-capacity yet absolutely private cloud solution more than ever. Synology offers all of these, and more.

Cloud Station Suite

Syncing across all your devices

Cloud Station synchronizes data across all your devices, such as computers, mobile devices, or other Synology NAS. As soon as you add a new file or save a change, it will be automatically updated on the other devices, allowing you to move between home and work, desktop and mobile, all while seamlessly working on the same file. Build a private cloud and ensure files are readily available when and where you need them.

See the white paper for more technical details regarding Cloud Station

Flexible for homes, reliable for work

File versioning and Intelliversioning Selective sync Offline editing
With the option to save up to 32 historical versions of each file, you can go back in time and recover previous versions of a file, in case it's accidentally deleted or overwritten. With the innovative “Intelliversioning” feature, only the most important versions are kept, allowing users to go further back in time while preserving a limited number of versions. Handpick individual folders that you want to sync to different devices, manually or automatically based on file format and size. Sync only small but critical files to your phone, work-in-progress documents to a PC, and all the large sales and marketing materials to DiskStations in the branch offices. During your busy day, it might be impossible to always stay connected to the Internet. Feel free to edit files offline, as all modifications will be synced when your device is reconnected to the Internet

Build a business-friendly file sync solution

Cloud Station is designed with the specific needs of businesses in mind, making it the ideal file syncing solution for your organization.

build icon 01 Group permissions
Access permission can now be fine-tuned according to user group and IP address, allowing administrators to save time and let users access Cloud Station only when connected to a specific network, like the internal office network or VPN.
build icon 02 Windows ACL support
Extensive collaboration requires the ability to specify detailed access rights. Fine-tune users' read, write, and administration permissions to individual files using Windows ACL, and the files will be synced to users’ PCs and mobile devices just the way you want it.
build icon 03 Bandwidth control
Speed limit allows administrators to control the maximum bandwidth consumption of each user or group. This helps reduce bottlenecking during periods of heavy network traffic.
build icon 04 2-step verification
Support for two-factor authentication helps prevent malicious parties from taking advantage of weak or stolen passwords to break into Cloud Station and obtain potentially sensitive files or documents.
build icon 05 Encryption
People used to think twice before storing confidential data in the cloud, private or public. Fortunately, folders synced by Cloud Station can be encrypted in DSM — no one will be able to access its content without your private key.
build icon 06 Syncing logs
When different people collaborate on the same files, it’s important to keep track of who edits, deletes, or restores which file from which device. Cloud Station's logs make this possible.
build icon 07 10,000 concurrent connections
Enterprise-level Synology NAS models can be upgraded to support up to 10,0001 concurrent file transfers when using Cloud Station.

Cloud Sync

To the best of both worlds

Connecting private and public clouds ensures you can always draw on the benefits of popular cloud providers, and yet keep everything perfectly synced and under control in your personal hardware. The Cloud Sync package lets you link your NAS with public cloud services, such as Amazon Cloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Cloud Storage, Microsoft OneDrive, OpenStack Swift, and many more.

See the white paper for more technical details regarding Cloud Sync

Keep everything tidy by syncing only the files and folders you want, or use the one-way sync feature to only copy files from your DiskStation to the cloud, or vice versa. Set up bandwidth limits so the syncing process does not interfere with your normal Internet usage. And review logs to see what has been downloaded or deleted.


Sometimes your colleagues might prefer to collaborate with a common public cloud account. Sync its content to your NAS so that you don't need to install another piece of software. Open a document on your Synology NAS, edit it, and others will instantly see the changes from the public cloud!

Perfect for offsite backup

Cloud Sync is a simple and inexpensive way to back up critical data off-site. With one-way sync, you can take advantage of the big storage space provided by cloud services to back up all your files, even after they've been removed from the Synology NAS. With options to encrypt data before sending to cloud services, there’s no need to worry about sensitive information being leaked or stolen.

Connection Services

Building your own cloud is made easy

It might be that all you want is a simple, private cloud without any frills. Something you can set up as soon as you receive your NAS. Having this in mind, Synology offers free connection services that streamline network setup, or even bypass it totally. Building your own private cloud thus becomes almost as easy as signing up for a public cloud!
