Synology NAS - Part 3

Date: 14th April 2017

Duration: 48:32

Show ref: SCOM0621

The third and final part of the current series on setting up and using a Synology NAS (Network Attached Storage) device.

Once you've started to store lots of important data on your NAS, you'll want to be sure that your data is safely secured with an offsite backup.

Synology Cloud Station ShareSync allows you to sync your important files with another Synology NAS, or you can use Cloud Sync to backup your files to a third-party cloud service like DropBox, BackBlaze, Google Drive, Box and many other services. In this episode, we demonstrate setting up and using both of these important packages.

If your primary reason for wanting a NAS is for it to act as a media server, we also demonstrate the initial setup, configuration and ongoing maintenance of Plex Media Server - installed directly on your Synology NAS.

Finally, we take a look at the surprisingly powerful Synology Surveillance Station, a free suite of utilities that turn your Synology NAS into a video recording hub for home or business security.

We hope you've found these Synology NAS tutorials useful and we'll revisit the topic in the future. If you have any specific areas of configuring or using a Synology NAS you would like us to cover in future shows, please let us know.

Synology NAS - Part 2

Date: 17th March 2017

Duration: 43:53

Show ref: SCOM0613

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.

Synology NAS - Part 1

Date: 10th March 2017

As promised, this week we start the first in an occasional service covering the setup, configuration and usage of a Networked Storage device (NAS) in your home or small business environment.

Whether it be for local file storage, for local backup, to act as media server, to act as an email server and more, a NAS can provide you with amazing levels of functionality and resiliance for much less than the cost of a dedicated PC or Mac server.

In this episode I take a look at selecting a NAS and the initial setup and configuration in a home enviroment. The episode is based on the Synology DS216+II, an inexpensive, yet very capable Network Attached Storage device.

As well as the initial setup and configuration, I also demonstrate accessing the NAS using DS Finder - an iOS app that allows you to access the NAS locally over across the internet.
