The company said DiskStation provides an offering for the standard NAS roles such as file sharing, scheduled backups, remote access, and centralised management, and has a built-in Web server capable of hosting up to 30 sites at once, or an add-on email server.
Remote access has been further enhanced with apps available for free on Android and iPhone smartphone platforms. DiskStation Manager (DSM) 3.0 offers users a desktop-like interface to simplify access to the DiskStation, whether locally or remotely.
DSM 3.0 also brings an integrated feature set for business users, such as enhanced iSCSI support (including MPIO and MC/S) that enables businesses to consolidate their storage without the cost and complexity of a SAN (storage area network).
ADS integration enables use of existing domain users and groups for domains up to 100,000 users and groups, while access control lists (ACLs) enable file-level privilege control using NTFS-style permissions.
The DS1511+ also includes Surveillance Station 5, which offers a unified interface for multiple cameras, and supports over 700 models of IP camera, turning it into an affordable NVR (network video recorder) offering.
