Network attached storage device manufacturer Synology had a great booth this year at CES. ThinkComputers’ Colin Dean talked with Synology’s Doug Self about the new version of the NAS firmware running on Synology devices. The new version includes some reorganization of the desktop-paradigm control panel and also enables a new CloudDrive feature, which enables a user to setup and control their own cloud storage system, like SpiderOak or Dropbox, using their Synology device. We also looked at the new DS411 Slim, a 4-bay NAS which uses 2.5” drives in order to give the device a very small size and increase its portability. Check out our video interview.
