Synology Disk Station 2.2

Synology America has released the beta version of Disk Station Manager 2.2. The firmware is used in unison with its storage server hardware to manage and access NAS servers over the network and the Internet. The latest version adds support of iSCSI and SNLA devices. The update also includes support for Apple's Time Machine backups, providing the ability to backup desktop data to their Disk Stations. The beta includes a built-in firewall function that users can decide which service or IP address will be allowed to access Disk Station. The firewall also blocks uninvited connections.

Synology will also be releasing iPhone applications that will work with the beta in the coming months. The first application, DS photo, will allow users to upload photographs from their iPhone or iPod touch to Disk Station while the second application, DS audio, will enable users access to music stored on Disk Stations using the Internet connection.

Disk Station Manager 2.2 Beta can be downloaded for free from the Synology website. A full version of the firmware is expected to be released in September.
