Extensive Support for Active Directory & LDAP
Synology NAS provides extensive support for Active Directory and LDAP to give businesses the flexibility and simplicity they need to manage a complex organization. By joining to the Active Directory or LDAP domain service, end users gain single sign-on to the Synology NAS through their domain account. IT managers can host their own LDAP server and centrally manage access and account control with ease. With the same domain account, end users can also access various DSM services directly.
Joining Active Directory
The Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) from Microsoft provides many advantages in managing a complex network. IT managers can centrally store device names, user names, passwords, and other information in one place, enhance network security, reduce overhead cost and more. When a Synology NAS is joined to an Active Directory, IT managers don't need to create separate accounts and duplicate security information and end users can use a single domain account to access the Synology NAS.
Hosting LDAP Server
Synology NAS can act as an independent LDAP server to provide businesses with centralized account and permission management and enhanced security through a simple-to-use management interface. IT managers can use the LDAP server to create domain user accounts and define access rights for shared folders, storage quota and various DSM applications on the Synology NAS. IT managers can also join a Synology NAS to an existing LDAP domain service.
DSM Apps Integration
In addition to accessing shared folders and files in the network, Synology NAS also allows end users to access various DSM services and apps directly with a single domain account.
Synology High Availability
Ensure Business Continuity
The Synology High Availability solution provides a reliable, simple-to-use failover mechanism to recover from physical and service failures
Automate system recovery and resume service efficiently
Heartbeat mechanism to detect and respond to system failure timely
Web-based, easy to use management interface
Heartbeat & Failover Protection
Synology High Availability harnesses dual Synology NAS storage servers into a high available cluster. The Heartbeat feature allows a primary and backup server to determine if the other is "alive." When one of the servers experiences service or physical failure, the other will fail over resources and resumes service automatically. Install SHA on your Synology NAS storage servers to minimize service downtime.
