REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ — Last week, Synology released a free software update for all x07, and x06 series storage systems; users can enable SSH service on their products by applying SSH update to the system software.

The SSH function unleashes the raw power of Linux while the customers can still enjoy the rich, matured, and user-friendly functions built into Synology Products. "Accompanying with rsync functions, IT Professionals now can integrate Synology products into their backup plan," said Edward Lin, Synology's Marketing Director. "We have added to the SynologyWiki several detailed rsync backup How-To Guides. Users can follow the instructions to backup Synology Servers to another rsync server and vice-versa. The rsync server can be either a Linux or Windows platform, running the rsync service, such as DeltaCopy for Windows. Furthermore, IT professionals can now develop their own scripts files to run their own batched backup jobs with full flexibility and security."

"Instead of spending thousands of dollars on an expensive PC server and backup software to backup their servers locally or remotely, IT professionals can now achieve the same goal using inexpensive Synology products with only a fraction of the cost," said Lin.

To make backup tasks easy for SOHO or small business owners, Synology has already provided an easy-to-use remote backup for users who wish to use the Web Management Application to backup their Synology servers to another Synology server or another rsync server. With this, smaller organizations can also enjoy enterprise-class remote backup.

Synology offers a wide range of products, ranging from the single-bay model (DiskStation DS107 Series), to the dual-bay models (DiskStation 207 Series, with RAID1), to the quad-bay models (CubeStation CS407 and Rackmount RackStation RS407 with RAID5). This eclectic collection of Synology products offers many options for creating a backup solution for offices small and large or for data centers.

In addition to the SSH and rsync update, Synology products will be NFS-ready. Following the instructions in the SynologyWiki, power users will be able to enable the NFS Service and manage their Synology product in a method they are more familiar with.
