- UUID: c6f82033-521a-409d-a609-2583dc8cad40
- Status: WIP: published as a index draft for myself to have a overview of what to write in the coming months
- Status: somehow-outdated draft because of the upgrade of Synology DSM
- Previous title: #1 Having Your Synology NAS as Your Home Intranet Center
Although more or less intentionally called as NAS by Synology and its communities, the Synology devices are in fact far more than just NAS but instead very customizable Linux computers.
Being a software engineer who of course enjoys and knows how to do the geek things, I have always been proud to have my two Synology NAS DS218+ and DS214play as my home Intranet Center hosting many of my own servers and applications.
Except for all the things already provided by Synology DSM, such as File Station, Download Station, Photo Station, Audio Station, Video Station, Web Station and so on, as shown in the following screenshot.
As a brief summary, my main usages include the following.
- File storage (first copies; cross-device usages)
- File archive and backup storage (non-first copies)
- macOS Time Machine storage
- Photo storage
- Audio storage and streaming
- Video storage and streaming
- Cloud storage synchronization
- 7-24 Internet Download-er
- Web server
- Git server
- Subversion server
- Docker and many hosted applications
As a preview, it is always good to have some screenshots. Therefore, here are they.
