CES 2014 logoSynology is previewing its new NAS OS at CES 2014.

DSM 5.0 is said to have a streamlined new interface and an easier installation process called QuickConnect.

QuickConnect only requires a user ID to be set up. Then as soon as a volume is created, it can be accessed remotely via browser or iOS, Android, and Windows Phone apps with no router configuration required.

Synology’s private cloud Cloud Station service adds syncing among multiple Synology NASes and the Package Center add-in app manager now supports automatic updates and improved application badges supporting push notification display.

Other DSM 5.0 features include:

• Hybrid Cloud Syncing, with Google Drive and Dropbox
• Facebook & Google+ sharing of files and folders
• YouTube uploading straight from PhotoStation
• Customizable status widgets
• 4K capable interface with touch input, for the next generation in display technology
• Scale out Storage Cluster enabling businesses to expand from TBs to PBs
• Central Management System with unified monitoring, remote administration, and policy based configuration
• Robust data protection including snapshot manager and more

The DSM 5.0 public beta will be rolling out over the next few weeks.
