Synology's hardware and Linux based NAS (network attached storage) OS

RVALUG's own Bryan Brodie will be discussing Synology,  a NAS OS. Synology has developed a Linux-based operating system ("DSM") for their product line of network attached storage devices which is powerful, cost-effective, flexible, simple and user-extensible.

The company and its products will be reviewed, highlighting and demonstrating features and options of interest to any workgroup or small/medium sized business.

A demonstration will be given of a LAMP application specifically developed and optimized for the Synology NAS operating environment.

    If it's OK with the speaker, would anyone be willing to record the presentation? Myself and at least one other member will be out of town and can't attend, but are very interested in the topic!

    Synology was mentioned in Brian Krebs' blog last week:

    (not necessarily in a good way!)


    One popular vendor of NAS devices — Synology — recently alerted users to a security update that fixes a vulnerability for which there has been a public exploit since December that allows attackers to remotely compromise the machines. A number of Synology users recently have been complaining that the CPUs on their devices were consistently maxing out at 100 percent usage. One user said he traced the problem back to software that intruders had left behind on his Synology RackStation device which turned his entire network storage array into a giant apparatus for mining Bitcoins.
