Large businesses commonly deploy many servers to facilitate company-wide resource management and to offload IT burden. While each server may be specifically assigned to a unique purpose, like a mail server or database server, the data are in fact scattered across the map. Instead of going on a data hunt to piece together the information needed to complete a project, Synology DiskStation Manager (DSM) helps users cut to the chase with remote server support.
Remote Folder allows you to mount a shared folder (or sub-folder) on another DiskStation via CIFS in File Station. Essentially, it’s just like mapping a network drive on your Windows. When a shared folder is mounted, it will be seen as if it’s a local shared folder on your DiskStation. So businesses can easily utilize every DiskStation within the network and practically obtain resources from one central commanding point. It’s going to increase your operational efficiency and save time from repetitive server login.
Businesses often need to upgrade their infrastructure once in a while to ensure that it’s capable of handling the ever-mounting information. The upgrade always involves bringing in new hardware with top-notch performance spec. So it’s inevitable that old servers will be replaced with new and faster ones. While the outdated servers can’t act as your business’ premium servers, they sure can become part of your storage pool. Just mount any remote server in the network then in just a few clicks you will be able to centrally manage all your storage space easily.
