Cloud & Productivity
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.
Data loss is a real danger, no matter what storage device you use. Important files - like your wedding photos or critical work documents - deserve a great backup strategy to protect against unexpected hardware failure, natural disasters, or simple accidental deletion. Let DSM help with robust and flexible backup solutions.
A central entertainment hub for better sharing
Serving as your personal entertainment hub, Synology DiskStation not only allows you to easily organize all the photos, videos, and music, but also share them with your family or friends effortlessly. With TV streaming support and the new mobile apps, DSM provides you the best way to enjoy a richer multimedia experience.
A powerful operating system requires powerful controls, especially when shared among multiple users. DSM helps you configure, maintain, and monitor your NAS in a meticulous manner - and it doesn't take an IT professional to figure out how.
With modern hardware, having a dedicated machine for each specific task rapidly becomes an expensive and inefficient solution. DSM's modular system allows you to install comprehensive applications and services on your DiskStation, whenever you need them. In addition, it’s possible to install software from third-party sources or even create your own.
Both hardware failure and malicious attacks from the Internet can disrupt access to critical digital assets. In businesses where maintaining 24/7 service is paramount, DSM offers advanced high availability and security measures to safeguard you from unexpected server disruption and data loss.
