Synology divides some of the DMS features into two categories - Home and Business. In the image above we see the Homes features.

Then we have the Business class features. Nothing stops home users from using the business features and vice versa. These are the standard software components that make up the DSM software and they are standard on most if not all of the NAS appliances and servers.

 

 

Additional Features - More Just a Click Away

 

We've already seen a number of features, more than enough to show that a NAS is no longer just a box full of hard drives for storage purposes. To really drive the point home though we've put together a list of additional software components that can be installed easily from within the NAS software. These additional features are so far over the top that no one could ever use them all, but if you wanted to you could.
