When I surfing through the web and I happened to chanced upon Synology website having some keyword of Cloud Storage Provider such as OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive. So I went to dived down deeper went I am home.
Upon logging into my Synology NAS (DS412+), I found Cloud Sync in the Package Center. Went ahead to install it and found the following.
Wow, look at what Synology have done for the consumer out there! We are able to synchronize so many different types of cloud provider via the NAS.
Please do note that this application is developed by Synology Inc itself and the file type for this package is (.spk). Yes, I do have the interests to see how this package is actually calling OneDrive. Is it the same as the way how OneDrive Client is doing? (Well, I am not sure how can I reversed engineer this just yet.)
After installation, this appear in the overlay of the Synology Dashboard. Nice looking icon there!
Now, the real action starts! Selected OneDrive and another pop-up appear to perform the authentication between OneDrive and Synology NAS.
The usual terms and condition that you will need to agree before proceeding, the kind that is similar to using 3rd-Party Developer Twitter Client to connect to your Twitter account via the API. Well, you have no choice but to agree since you are eager to use the APIs!
Select the place you would like to place the data (files and folders) that is synchronized between OneDrive and Synology.
You can even selective synchronization where you only synchronized certain folders from OneDrive.
After configuration, we can see the console actually starts searching the files and folders to be synchronized and process the synchronization. There is even an icon that is located at the task bar which shows the status of the OneDrive.
I am really happy that Synology is making effort to make sure that the consumer experience is being upgraded at their each major or minor release of the firmware.
Thumbs up to Synology Team!
