I have numerous NAS servers at my home and in my office, but the most used is the NAS that holds our family media.

Even if your devices can't play the format of your files, the Synology software can transcode the files to a format they can play. This is a big issue for Sony PlayStation consoles.

I think everyone needs an iTunes server.

If you don't have the files you want to play then Synology includes a Download Station.

And when you use the download station... Antivirus is built into the NAS software.

If you have a web browser on your connected device you can still get to your media files and play them through the web.

You can even attach cameras around your home or office and view them in the Live Viewer.

In 2012 Synology launched a new cloud feature that makes getting to your NAS through the cloud easier than ever.
