    Synology DSM 5.2 Beta Available with new Features


    Network attached storage maker, Synology, has just released a new beta of their web based management tool.  DSM, or Disk Station Management, 5.2 is available for testing with several improved features and a couple new ones.




    A major new addition to DSM is Docker.  You can already install a ton of utilities and software programs on a Synology NAS but Docker is taking it a step further allowing you containerize installs of popular programs without a need of a full guest OS installation.



    Installing and using new server applications has never been so convenient. Do you need a new clean environment for your web app, easily transferable to the production server? Start, stop, and monitor your installed containers from the unified dashboard and evaluate your resource needs. Docker creates a lean container embedding just the necessary libraries, unlike virtual machines which need an entire guest OS to run.

    Notestation, the Synology equivalent of Evernote or OneNote is getting a web clipper, task management system, and other improvements.  File Station can now mount cloud drive storage such as OneDrive, DropBox, and Google Drive, making it seem as if the files are right there on your NAS for manipulation.  There is more.  Check the source link below for more features and how to get started with the beta.

    • 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?
