Imagine you’re an IT administrator and one morning your task is to install new software on every work computer in the office. The tedious process goes without saying. Traditionally speaking, you’d have to take your CD or DVD to each computer and run installation one by one. Or you could turn to those virtualization solutions that give you the ability to virtualize everything, but it’s also going to cost you’re a fortune, let alone the human resource to look after the infrastructure day in and day out. Synology offers a cost effective solution for you to mount ISO images locally, so you can still install software on every client, with much less time spent.
For the IT specialist in a business workgroup, the new virtual drive feature can significantly reduce the time and effort required for software installation. It’s particularly effective when one has to install different software on a large group of clients. You can mount as many as 16 ISO images simultaneously on a single DiskStation, so that every work computer within the network can access it. For example, to install ERP software on a 10-client environment now only takes 1/10 of the original time.
