Synology announces new solutions
June 2018, IT infrastructure

Synology has launched its Solution Exhibition at the Xin-Yi Eslite store in Taipei during COMPUTEX 2018 (from the 5th to 9th June), showcasing its first Mesh Wi-Fi router, MR2200ac, along with the updated Synology Router Manager (SRM) 1.2.

Also unveiled were an enterprise-level data protection solution Active Backup for Business, Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) Pro with advanced features, the latest Surveillance Station 8.2, DiskStation Manager (DSM) 6.2, with many software feature updates. In addition, a series of new DiskStation and RackStation models was introduced to the public for the first time.

“Users have been the driving force behind all development efforts at Synology. At the Synology Solution Exhibition, we were excited to receive user and partner feedback for us to continue delivering products that best satisfy user needs." said Derren Lu, CEO of Synology.

Mesh Router MR2200ac and SRM 1.2

Synology’s first mesh router, MR2200ac, comes with Qualcomm IPQ4019 quad-core CPU and tri-band Wi-Fi, allowing users to expand Wi-Fi coverage through flexible deployment. All Wi-Fi connections and devices can be managed via one platform - SRM. Additionally, settings and remote management can be operated through both a web interface and a dedicated mobile app - DS router.

SRM 1.2 comes with more granular configurations, such as user profile creation, detailed traffic management, advanced web filters and whitelisting features. With the integration of third-party databases, such as Google Safe Browsing and DNS/IP threat intelligence, home users and IT admins can enjoy a hassle-free yet powerful network management experience.

Active Backup for Business and Virtual Machine Manager (VMM)

Active Backup for Business provides complete protection for various workloads from PCs, Windows and Linux servers, and virtual machines. The support for Changed Block Tracking (CBT) technology only backs up modified blocks, while global deduplication detects and deletes duplicated files. These enhance backup efficiency and reduce unnecessary storage consumption.

VMM enables users to run virtual machines in a cluster infrastructure with the Synology NAS. With its flexible scalability and live migration tool, VMM optimises load balancing and resource allocation. The new VMM Pro supports schedulable backup and replication of virtual machines to another Synology NAS, safeguarding digital business assets. Virtual machines and physical servers can be backed up via Active Backup for Business and restored on VMM, achieving Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) disaster recovery and effectively minimising RTO.

LiveCam, a new application in Surveillance Station 8.2, can turn your spare smartphone into an IP camera. An upgraded Application Centre comes with 26 applications and utilities to help users manage extensions without hassle.

DSM 6.2 and new NAS models

After the eight-month-long beta program with over 71 000 participating NAS systems, Synology announced the official release of DSM 6.2, which delivers a more reliable, efficient, and secure NAS experience. DSM 6.2 supports the new Advanced LUN, which increases sequential writing performance by 46%, provides fast snapshots and completes a recovery within seconds.

The revamped Synology High Availability (SHA) 2.0 greatly reduces initial cluster setup time. A brand new system overview and resource monitor allow administrators to have more in-depth control of active and passive servers. A renewed interface allows users to troubleshoot with easy-to-follow instructions, minimising service downtime.

A host of new NAS models were also launched to satisfy a wide range of users’ deployment needs, including the Intel Celeron J3455-powered DS1019+, compact DS619slim, highly-scalable DS2419+, brand new 2U RackStation RS1219+, and RS1619xs+, the first Synology 1U XS series flagship.
