At its recent London event, Synology has unveiled a series of hybrid cloud innovations.
the company showcased a data management platform which seamlessly integrates its hardware and software infrastructure and its cloud services to “help businesses effectively manage exponential data growth”.
At the core of the platform lies the new DiskStation Manager (DSM) 7.0 operating system. The highlights include streamlined on-premises storage management, cloud-based monitoring and issue prevention, and native hybrid cloud storage capabilities.
It is further backed by an expanded product portfolio designed to meet enterprises’ high performance, availability, and density requirements.
“Synology has been managing data for more than 6 million homes and businesses worldwide, which is remarkable not only in the storage industry but also in the whole data management market,” said Philip Wong, Synology’s founder and CEO.
“Building on the blueprint we created 20 years ago, we are now seeing all three pieces connected in DSM 7.0: our hardware, software, and cloud offerings. It will serve as the foundation of all our products and services in the coming decade.”
DSM 7.0 is developed around three key elements:
– User empowerment: new Storage Manager, enhanced SSD cache, and deeper integration with virtualisation environments
– Smart insights: 24/7 server monitoring and issue prevention with Active Insight
