Synology aims to disrupt enterprise data management in India with new DSM 7.0

Mumbai: Taiwanese NAS appliances brand Synology aims to disrupt the enterprise data management space in India. Synology recently unveiled its new DiskStation Manager (DSM) 7.0 operating system (OS) and NAS products, catering small to mid-size businesses to large enterprises.

Synology’s DSM 7.0 OS is built to suit today’s enterprises with complex data management needs that spans across on-premise to hybrid multi-cloud storage with data security. It enables streamlining of on-premises storage management, cloud-based monitoring and issue prevention, and native hybrid cloud storage capabilities.

Since it entered into the Indian market in 2017, Synology has expanded its market focus from consumer to small office home office (SOHO) to the mid market segment.

The reason for this segment expansion and growing acceptance of Synology in the Indian market has been it’s innovative storage and data product portfolio, which caters to both – home and business segments.

Probably, that’s the reason why Synology has been able to grow its business steadily in India against other NAS players like QNAP Systems, Netgear, Asustor and even to some extent NetApp.

“In the first half of 2019, overall we boost up a 50% plus growth, and over 80% growth of enterprise solutions in India,” said Mike Shay, India Business Head – Synology.

With an increasingly number of small and mid size enterprises and organization in India today exercising digitalization and business transactions, vendors like Synology and others could expect more demands of their storage and data management solutions.

“Synology has been managing data for more than 6 million homes and businesses worldwide, which is remarkable not only in the storage industry but also in the whole data management market,” added Shay.

Founded in 2000, the Taipei headquartered company has been around for nearly two decades now and operates across 100 plus countries. It has six subsidiaries including in the UK, US, France, Germany, Japan and China. With over six million installations, Synology’s 70% trade comes from B2B business.

During this long existence, Synology has expanded its tech capabilities and product innovations with DiskStation, FlashStation and RackStation modules covering different areas around storage, data management and protection, and cloud.

Like Google and Amazon’s public cloud, Synology has its own public cloud service C2, offering backup data protection. The service claims to be have over 28,000 business and personal users.

In addition, company’s storage and data management solutions provides insights as well as data protection to users.
