Why Do You Need a Synology NAS

If you’re here reading this, then you probably need a NAS. And if you don’t actually need a NAS, then you probably want one. And that’s great because getting a Synology NAS is one of the best gifts you can give yourself, whether you intend to use it for your own business or for personal affairs. Or you can gift it to someone you care about as it makes an awesome present, practical, thoughtful, one that won’t break the bank either. So why do you need a NAS and what is it good for?

Storage Space

As we get older we start realising the importance memories. With a few exceptions, memories in our head get blurred by the passing of time. Fortunately for us, we now have phones and digital cameras that help us capture every important moment in our lives. From the kids’ first day of school to graduation pictures, the birth of the first grandchild in the family to 88 photos of the family dog chasing a squirrel in the backyard last Sunday, we have pretty much every lovely moment in our lives recorded. But what about storage space? Enter stage Synology NAS!

Why bother with USB flash drives or external memories when you can just buy the new DS720+ Synology NAS and store every picture and video you’ve ever taken, and readily access them at any time and from anywhere (your computer, laptop)? And have the certainty that you and only you have access to family photos or other sensitive data such as warranties, bills, insurance files etc. And if you want to transfer photos or other files to a cloud service of your choice, whether it’s Synology C2 or another, you can do that as well.

Docker Containers

Docker is a lightweight virtualization application that gives you the ability to run thousands of containers created by developers from all over the world on DSM.

Virtual Machine

Simply put, Virtual Machine is like a computer inside a computer. A Virtual Machine is a standalone piece of software that imitates a computer system and is characterized by being self-contained and operating independently from the host operating system. A Synology NAS, preferably one of the latest versions such as DS720+, provides the ideal setting for running Virtual Machines in terms of storage facilities, system and hardware capabilities.
