It has been three years since the first public preview version of DSM 7 was available to the public and during that time DSM 6 has been supported by Synology in terms of security patches, functionalities, and package updates. The life cycle is normal in both hardware and software, so on October 1st, 2024, Synology will terminate support for DSM 6.2. This version is currently in an extended life phase, meaning that after that date no more security updates or features will be developed for it. Continue reading...

In the introduction article of the series, we talked about the new RS2423+ in general. About its specifications, internal setup, as well as how to install it inside a rack, and how to add the drives. With this article we will be moving a step forward, starting with DSM 7.2 installation and configuration. Further along, we will see how to configure the RAID array using the new HAT3300 Synology NAS drives, install packages, and configure some other services that come with this whole ecosystem.

Most Synology's devices have a 1-3 year update lifecycle, depending on a specific model. Regardless if we are talking about DS (desktop) or RS/SA/UC (rack) units, for the most part, users will have an option to buy or update their existing NAS with a successor at one point in time. In February of 2023, Synology rolled out an updated 12-bay RS NAS as their follow-up of the RS2421+/RP+, called RS2423+RP+. Just like the previous generation, this particular model is designed as a versatile storage solution for business workloads.
: Overview During the last days of May of 2023, Synology officially released the new "home and small office" lineup of their drives, the HAT3300. These drives, unlike already available enterprise-class HAS5300 or HAT5300, are the first from what Synology calls the plus series. Continue reading...

In this second article, we will see how can we further explore and use Synology NAS with ESXi to provide space for the virtual machines that will be hosted by the hypervisor, as well as use Synology's Active Backup for Business platform to backup said VMs onto the NAS. While backup is just one function, we will also see how we can recover deleted VMs back to the ESXi host. Continue reading...
While Synology is not always associated with a hypervisor platform, even though it provides one, it can still be used with several world-known solutions. This short two-part series will show how we can use a compatible Synology NAS with VMWare ESXi host, as well as how to back up and restore virtual machines running on that same host. On top of that, we will see how Active Backup for Business and Synology's SAN manager packages work in this type of scenario. Continue reading...
The fact is that ever since ChatGPT has taken the world by storm, it keeps popping up everywhere. All the tech giants are using it, open-source as well, even all of us for pretty much everything. Is this good or not, it's a different topic, but now, let's see how ChatGPT and Portainer can help beginners and professionals get things done faster when it comes to Docker or Kubernetes management. Continue reading...
It is more than clear to anyone using Synology products that the company's core business is NAS devices (network-attached storage). While they have also moved into the networking segment since 2015, with five routers that hit the market so far, one thing that was never in their focus was DAS (direct attached storage). A month ago, everything changed when Synology announced its first device from that segment, the BeeDrive. Continue reading...
