Synology® Announces the Official Release of DiskStation Manager 2.3 Firmware, introducing Synology Hybrid RAID, EZ-Internet Wizard, Shared Folder Encryption, Surveillance iPhone® App and Enhanced Applications
Taipei, Taiwan-March 8, 2010-Synology® Inc. today officially released DiskStation Manager 2.3 (Synology DSM 2.3) firmware that has attracted participation of over 10,000 enthusiastic users in the beta program since January 2010. Synology DSM 2.3 introduces simple volume management with the new Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR), EZ-Internet Wizard, shared folder encryption, surveillance iPhone® App, backup to the cloud with Amazon S3®, and enhanced versions of File Station, Surveillance Station, Photo Station, and Audio Station.
"We continue to provide customers with easy to use features and applications," said Edward Lin, marketing director of Synology Inc. The SHR simplifies RAID setup by optimizing the disk capacities with data redundancy when different sized hard drives are used. The EZ-Internet Wizard guides users through the steps to establish access to the DiskStation from the Internet, including firewall settings, PPPoE setup or DDNS registration, including router port forwarding configuration. "Thank you for an amazing product that keeps getting better for each release," commented Ole Anders Bøe from Norway, a participant of the DSM 2.3 beta rewards program.
Flexible security is added with AES 256-bit shared folder encryption to ensure data security and sub-folder backup is also supported in addition to "shared folders". Amazon S3® is supported as a backup target. Additional new features include a new iPhone app, the Synology DS cam, which allows users of Surveillance Station to live view their IP cameras, take snapshots, and view recorded events with their iPhone or iPod touch®. DS cam is available for download free of charge at the Apple® App Store.
The Synology DiskStation experience just got better with new enhancements to File Station 3, Surveillance Station 4, Photo Station 4, and Audio Station 2.
