In the second part of this occasional series, we take a look at using the Synology NAS to provide centralised storage.
At the core of your Synology NAS is DSM (Disk Station Manager) - a fully featured, server based operating system, optimised to manage your storage.
In this episode, we take a look at configuring DSM to share files and folders and set up user accounts.
As well as the more traditional file sharing capabilities, Synology provide a suite of applications called "Cloud Station Suite" - a range of free applications which allow you to create your own private sync services and in effect, set up your own private Cloud. We demonstrate how to set up the syncing services between your Mac, your NAS and your iOS devices - all for free and with no ongoing costs.
To learn more about the initial setup of a Synology NAS, be sure to check out episode SCOM0611 - Synology NAS - Part 1
