During the GITEX Technology week, I had the opportunity to see latest innovations, products and services which we will see in forth coming months. One of the company stand which I found interesting and was on the side line in the Hall 6, CLD-34 was Synology and thanks to the pr agency I learnt a lot of things about NAS drives and it’s applications.
Max Wu – Product Marketing Manager, Synology, showed me their latest development in the Networking, Application, and Storage, Technologies.
Synology and Surveillance
Surveillance has also been one of Synology’s key product focuses and at GITEX, the company unveiled new Network Video Recorder products in the NVR1218 and VS960HD. NVR1218 supports 12 concurrent recording channels and a COM port interface that works perfectly to support POS integration in Surveillance Station 8.1. while the VS960HD is a palm-sized local display companion to Surveillance Station, with up to 96-channel HD live view and dual HDMI for 4K and 1080p output, making it an ideal TV wall solution.
“With the strong buying power and rapid growth of ICT industry, the Middle East is an important market for Synology as we continue to enable businesses with new innovations in NAS and hybrid cloud solutions. Today, modern enterprises are rethinking storage due to more and more IT managers becoming a lot more comfortable with the idea of moving company data to the cloud. In the Middle East, many businesses have introduced network-attached storage (NAS) to replace their file or backup servers, especially considering its cost-effectiveness along with a rich and growing set of features. We look forward to continue driving this trend by helping professionals work together while maintaining an efficient data protection solution,” said Nick Jheng, Sales Account Manager at Synology.
Synology and Moments App
Synology has an App called Moments (available on Android and IOS platform), which Synology customer can download it free from the App store. The Moment App connects with your NAS device at your home or office and sync with all your images stored on NAS device. So bascially while you are travelling or away from Home you can upload or download images on to your NAS device.
Synology’s Moments App and NAS device has software (which is to be downloaded from Synology website), which has the Algorithm to identify the image and creates it own database. Example: If you have clicked an image of an Pizza and stored in the NAS device without giving a file name as Pizza, With the help of the software Algorithm, it will identify the image. So next time when put up word “Pizza” in the search box, automatically all the Pizza related images in your NAS drive will show up on your screen.
This Moment App will only work if you are Synology customer.
