So, I love my Synology DS412+. The ONE AND ONLY downside I have found with it, is the lack of de-duplication software. My dream with this current Synology would be to throw in a few Samsung 840 Pro SSD’s and create a dedupe store for all of the OS’s and other specific applications.
Synology prides itself in having an app-center where you can download applications built by Synology or by third-parties. But there isn’t any applications that would run deduplication available yet. I wrote Synology and got a response back today. It says:
“Thank you for your support of Synology!

So, unfortunately this wasn’t the news that I’d wanted to hear but at least it’s a start. For those of you who also use Synology products and are interested in pushing for deduplication utilities by Synology, head over to their site and let your voice be heard!
For those interested in Deduplication currently there are a few options, namely Nexentastor which allows for deduplication. Check out their site.
