Synology Inc.
6F-2, No.106,
Taipei, Taiwan

Press release date: October 1, 2009

Taipei, Taiwan - October 1, 2009 - Synology® Inc. today announced the official release of its Synology Assistant, introducing Linux version, multiple Disk Station installation, resource monitor and several enhancements of the management UI. "In addition, the official release also includes support for the latest Mac OS, Snow Leopard," said Edward Lin, marketing director of Synology.

The Linux version of Synology Assistant is designed for Ubuntu distribution. In addition to the existing Windows and Mac version, users can now install Synology Assistant on Linux environment.

Installing system firmware for a batch of Disk Stations simultaneously is now possible. The batch installation function makes it easier and more time-saving for deploying multiple Disk Stations in a network. Installation status of each Disk Station is clearly displayed during the process to ensure a successful installation.

With Synology Assistant, users can now monitor CPU usage, memory usage, network flow and volume usage of multiple Disk Stations. Without logging into DSM 2.2 management UI, all statistics are displayed on a well-organized panel for easy access, greatly eliminating administrative efforts.

Synology Assistant also includes several UI enhancements. The application window is now resizable, and the Disk Stations listed can now be sorted by different attributes such as server name, or IP address. The configurable language setting now allows users to use the new Synology Assistant in the language they are familiar with. The Synology Assistant is compatible with Windows 2000 onward, Mac OS X 10.3 onward and Linux Ubuntu 8 and 9.


Synology Assistant applies to Synology Disk Station of x09, x08 and x07 series and is available for free download at:
