Synology has released the beta DiskStation Manager (DSM) 5.1 OS for NAS (network attached storage) servers.

The DSM delivers many new updates including, easier photo and video sharing, increased security and backup tools, increased productivity and a more integrated private cloud.

“Storage technologies are evolving fast and so is DSM. Version 5.1 boasts a significant amount of new features revolving around three critical concepts: integrating private cloud, broadening sharing possibilities, and enhancing data safety,” added Wang.

It is free to download for users who own a DiskStation or RackStation x11 series and onward, and supports the 15, 14, 13, 12 and 11-series.

This news comes after Synology said it's the first NAS vendor to launch a product based on the Intel Avoton platform.

Synology also revealed its new DiskStation DS415+, designed to improve data storage, backup and file sharing.

The 4-bay NAS server features an Intel AtomTM 2.4Ghz quad-core processor with an AES-NI hardware encryption engine, as well as 2GB DDR3 RAM.

It also includes a USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and eSATA ports to allow users to connect to various external devices.

Michael Wang, product manager at Synology, said: “Thanks to its best-in-class combination of hardware specs and DSM software integration, DS415+ handles data transfer and encryption at blazingly fast speeds.”

The DS415+ is available now globally and costs £450 in the UK.
