Synology has released the official version of DiskStation Manager (DSM) 4.1.
DSM 4.1 fully supports VMware vSphere 5 vStorage APls for Array Integration (VAAI) features. By integrating Full Copy, Zero Blocks, and Atomic Test and Set (ATS) features, Synology DiskStation and RackStation boost the performance of ESXi servers and optimize storage utilization to empower business with an efficient virtualized data center. The revamped Syslog server features real-time log overview, extensive notification service, and customizable log archive, making it easy for IT managers to manage logs collected over the network.
Boasting streamlined data consolidation by enabling users to sync shared folders from multiple DiskStation and RackStation to a single destination, file sharing becomes not only more efficient with FXP support, but also more secure with SFTP server support to meet enterprise security standards.
The brand-new Video Station has a sleek interface that presents the entire video information gathered automatically, providing a convenient way to organize users’ video collections. With a USB DTV tuner, users can live stream TV shows or set a recording schedule. DS video extends their multimedia enjoyment to iOS devices and supports streaming H.264 videos of selected formats in HD quality for the finest viewing experience. Timeline is built into Photo Station and allows users to display photos chronologically with geotags. Featuring a redesigned interface with an elegant appeal, Audio Station lets every user host a personal library and shows live lyrics with highlight of the current line.
Surveillance Station 6 features a refreshed, intuitive interface, making video playback more efficient with four time-sliders that correspond to their respective channels. New object tracking features, including Tally Counter, Virtual Fence and No-idle Zone, help users detect intruders easily.
Synology DSM 4.1 is free to download for users who own a DiskStation or RackStation x09 series and onwards.
