    Synology announces BeyondCloud at CES 2015


    Synology always has something for us when CES rolls around each January.  This year it's not a DSM upgrade or a new @ioSafe fireproof NAS.   This year Synology is announcing a new package called BeyondCloud.  Read on for more details and the press release from Synology.


    I'll get my hands on this new system today at 10AM Pacific time when the doors of CES 2015 finally open.  Stay tuned to this site around 10:30AM Pacific for a live look at the Synology booth and the new BeyondCLoud package.

    Synology Encourages Users to Live BeyondCloud at CES 2015, Allowing Users to Play, Collaborate, and Achieve Quicker and More Affordably Than Ever

    Bellevue, Washington—Synology America Corp. the experts in network attached storage, today announced the release of BeyondCloud- the most affordable bundles for users to quickly access and share data, creating their own private cloud.  The new BeyondCloud bundles include both DiskStations and disks, and come pre-configured with both operating system and volume already installed; meaning they arrive ready to plug in and begin using.  Users can play, collaborate, and achieve.

    BeyondCloud saves users both time and money.  The systems are pre-installed, storage is already allocated, so users can access their own private cloud almost immediately.  In addition, the bundles can cost less than the DiskStations and disks purchased separately.  Single disk packages are available in 2TB and 3TB configurations, and two-disk packages are available with two 3TB disks in a mirror configuration for peace of mind. 

    “We are extremely excited to be offering the BeyondCloud package,” said Jason Bonoan, Product Marketing Manager at Synology America Corp.  “Synology is well known for our award-winning DiskStation Manager and its feature set.  With this bundled package, users can quickly take advantage of this, and go beyond traditional public cloud solutions; providing the best value for the tech-savvy user.”

    BeyondCloud provides a suite of multimedia packages preinstalled allowing users to quickly create their own private multimedia solution and play their media files at home or remotely.  Mobile apps allows users to carry terabytes of content, using DS photo+, DS audio, and DS video from their iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices giving them access remotely.

    BeyondCloud also empowers users to easily collaborate and share with friends, family, and coworkers.  Synology’s QuickConnect service allows for simplified remote access, so users can quickly share media and documents.  Cloud Station keeps documents up to date across multiple computers, and can be great for backups.  Note Station allows users to easily create and share digital notebooks and files.

    BeyondCloud helps to achieve more with Synology’s award-winning OS, DiskStation Manager, allowing users to go beyond the constraints of the public cloud. Multimedia apps help users stay in control of their own collections. 

    Package prices should be released at:

    BC115j 1200 — $179.99

    BC115j 1300 — $239.99

    BC214se 2300 — $369.99

    • Let's start small with the definition. If you know about podcasts already you can skip ahead.  
      What is a podcast?  There is no set definition but in general a podcast is a voice recording on a subject that you can usually listen to however and whenever you want.  Let's break these down a little bit and that will also help define the term for you.

    • Here is something that wasn't planned but came to me while I was at Unveiled.  The Unveiled event was a little lackluster so I had a little fun with the DJI Osmo Pocket.  Take a look.

    • TP-Link's Wi-Fi 6 Routers
      I talked with TP-Link about their AX series routers.  The Deco X10 is a Tri-Band mesh router that will come in a pack of two for $350.  I was told Q3 for release but if that sounds like a long time don't forget that we don't have anything that will talk with the AX standard yet.  
      It's a good looking box that I hope will perform well and have plenty of features.  I've read good things about the Deco series and there were a few good sales last year on the M5.  I really should test the M5!

      Here it is.  Yes, it's huge! Not a hockey puck like the M5 is.  What do you think?
