Following the introduction of a beta release utilised by over 10,000 participants earlier this year, Taiwanese network-storage specialist Synology has this week made available the final release of its DiskStation Manager 2.3 firmware.
The update, available for numerous Synology NAS devices, introduces a bevy of new features, including; simplified RAID setup via Synology Hybrid RAID, an EZ-Internet Wizard that assists users in setting up remote web access and the ability to backup data to the cloud in collaboration with Amazon S3.
Available as a free update, the DiskStation Manager 2.3 firmware also offers added support for AES 256-bit shared folder encryption, and includes improved versions of Synology's popular File Station 3, Photo Station 4, Audio Station 2 and Surveillance Station 4 applications. Surveillance is also further enhanced via the introduction of a new iPhone App - which now allows iPhone owners to live view their IP cameras, take snapshots and playback recorded footage.
