Synology Releases DSM 6.0: New Backup Methodology

March 24, 2016 6 comments

CC000571Today Synology launched their new DiskStation Manager (DSM) 6.0, one of the biggest overhauls of the OS to date. Among the major feature updates is a profound bolstering of their snapshotting, backup, and archiving functionalities.

I’ve written extensively about Synology’s Backup functionality for DSM 5.2 (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3), but have held off on pulling the trigger on a Cloud-based “part 4” for a variety of reasons (which are better left for a different post).
