Video surveillance: How to choose the right storage
Cloud vs. onsite surveillance isn’t as hard a choice as you think. We’ve all been there. An Amazon package mysteriously disappears. A stranger came knocking on your door late at night. Assets got stolen from a shop. Surveillance is a universal need. When it comes to selecting a surveillance solution, much of the discussion revolves around which camera to buy, while storing surveillance footage is often overlooked. But, if the recording isn’t available when you need it, what good is the surveillance system at all? There are a few different data storage options for surveillance, from cloud storage to local
Seamlessly access between Synology NAS and G Suite service by tapping into LDAP in Google Cloud Identity
A growing trend towards putting directory service onto the cloud as a unified cloud-based AD/LDAP is allowing IT admins to manage cloud and on-premises servers efficiently and flexibly. As more and more clients are adopting hybrid cloud infrastructure to store and manage their data, Google Cloud Identity therefore made a forward-thinking move by creating a brand new feature called Secure LDAP. This new feature can also integrate user accounts seamlessly to allow Synology NAS to form closer ties with Google Cloud Identity and G Suite in addition to exchanging data. With Secure LDAP offered through Cloud Identity and G Suite, Google
It’s time to consider having a local copy of your data from the cloud
Cloud computing services are an integral part of many businesses and they handle communication, collaboration, and file storage. Because of the convenience cloud computing provides, many companies worldwide resort to Software as Service (SaaS) to manage their daily operations. Also known as on-demand software, it’s hosted centrally in the cloud in which business applications are delivered. Since SaaS offers plenty of advantages, such as lower costs, easy setup, and a high level of accessibility and scalability, SaaS deployments in business management are on the rise. Microsoft 365 has over 120 million users and saw 41% revenue growth in the company’s
How to ensure the quality of transfer service?
Now you have full control over your bandwidth resources when transferring with Presto File Server, powered by Synology Internet Transfer Accelerator (SITA), which supports compression to accelerate the speed of large data transfers from long distances. Given the highest speed your bandwidth can reach, if the network is congested with lower priority files or non-urgent data, the transfer quality would remain low. Dynamically adjust task priority The priority can be determined in two ways: The order being served or transferred, and How many resources are secured for its sake Number one is the most intuitive, and to adjust, it is
How does Synology utilize Collaboration Suite to boost office productivity?
Starting from 2016 we have been working on the collaboration utilities which would massively reinforce office productivity. We have deployed these applications internally.

Mail Service Employees used to work on Outlook and Gmail to deal with their emails. You will eventually face storage issues, but our situation changed when we started using MailPlus suite. It has facilitated server management and the end user experience for email operations. MailPlus Server provides
Bring AI to your business with NAS
While I was investigating the amount of data being generated every minute back in 2017, Domo.com stated that 90% of the data in the world has been created in the last two years alone. This year “Data Never Sleeps 6.0” has estimated that by 2020 every person on earth will create 1.7 MB of data every second, that is, 12 PB per second in total. This is why worldwide spending on AI and cognitive systems will reach $77.6 billion in 2022, according to an IDC forecast. Businesses have to rely on AI services to help with data categorization. Various public
Home network security in the IoT era
The Internet is a double-edged sword According to Cisco Visual Network Index (VNI), there will be an average of 35 IoT devices in every household by 2020, which means people will have plenty of smart devices installed in their homes, such as smart locks, fridges, and TVs. While we enjoy the luxury technology brings, the Internet we use at home has become a sitting duck for hackers, causing more and more malicious attacks at the same time. On top of that, since devices we use are often connected under the same network, once a device has been attacked, hackers can
Surveillance cameras can serve as more than just security
Schedule recording is one of the most commonly used features for home surveillance. Users schedule the camera to record only at night or during their time out of the house. Recordings will be marked in green when motion is detected, so it’s easier to identify certain events. This is probably the most general purpose of deploying the surveillance system at home and it has helped tens of thousands of users identify a lot of home security breaches. Another common scenario is using Surveillance Station to comfort you if you have hired a caregiver taking care of someone at home. Simply deploy
