  • Flexible notification system, allowing granular control of alerts and delivery methods (email, IM, push notifications)

    iCloud saves time in configuration
  • Scheduled SMART scans to keep admins in the know before problems arise
  • Revamped GUI with powerful and intuitive tools to improve work flow for both novice and advanced users
  • Improved Package Management- most applications (ie. Photo Station, Surveillance Station, etc.) are now packages, added at need
  • Antivirus package- free antivirus scanning for the DiskStation
