Synology NASes are nothing more than a collection of low-end, older & established PC parts.
It's not about how much you earn. It's about what you're worth. And who's worth the most? Companies that lose money. Pintrest, Snapchat, no revenue. Amazon has lost money for every f***ing quarter for the last 20 f***ing years and that Jeff Bezos is the king.
Good questions. I did get inside info that several big storage companies tried to buy Syno in the past decade (and recently again) but looks like Taiwan doesn't want to hear about it.Anyone knows if Synology is actively pushing into the Fortune 500 companies and aggressively marketing their new "enterprise grade" devices, strategies and business continuity solutions?
Are they going against established names like IBM and Oracle and the others who are after the whole stack with their vertical solutions?
In the old days, there was a hardware vendor, a software vendor and a storage vendor. Now each one wants everything. More power to feed the share price furnace.
I'm guessing, to cut a long cycle short and get their hands on DSM. Big, established companies might be indifferent to the hardware and might push their own interpretation of what it should be.several big storage companies tried to buy Syno in the past decade (and recently again)

However, in such a case, they must understand that it won't be about backing up photos from a mobile phone and sorting them in the Photos App, which for its operation needs performance incompatible with the mass market requirements for the price of a small NAS.Synology needs to offer something so enticing that the big companies cannot ignore (even to hoping to briefly come up in an internal IT meeting discussion).
I wrote about this a long time ago that I do not know a vendor in an enterprise that would offer such a simple and easy non-fulfilment of basic enterprise conditions as Syno.The established competition (although at this point it can't be considered as such), will chew them and spit them in every meeting with their big clients. They'll be the joke that the attendees laughs at ignorantly.
Of course, such boxes will be suitable for mid-size backup companies as usual empty backup nodes only. But, who will want more than one central console to manage all storage nodes?If all this noise is aiming to at least score one or two rack servers inside for a secondary, not so important (to the daily operation) task, then they might sell a few here and there, but even that won't be easy.
I go two ways with this....Syno is making some very questionable changes with recent updates of DSM. Not encouraging. I would consider moving to something like TrueNAS/FreeNAS but then theres the issue of going back to a glorified PC, parts from different vendors and more work and effort to setup and get running but I can appreciate cost savings and better performance from higher end components.
I specifically went to a vendor supported NAS for the ease of setup and functionality. I'm a at a point with IT in my personal life where I want a single vendor supported box that is fairly easy to setup up and just works....If the NAS fails, Synology replaces it, if I have a drive failure - warranty claim to the vendor. Less overall headache for the day to day.
