“DSM 3.0 has Synology continuing its steady march,” said Franklin Hua, a technical product manager at Synology America Corp. “With this latest release Synology underscores its commitment to bringing enterprise-level tools to the SMB and SOHO market.”

The revamped GUI emulates a desktop within a browser, giving users a familiar-looking environment to reduce training time. The multi-tasking ability allows users to quickly switch between tasks. The customizable interface allows the user to create shortcuts to their most frequently used tools for rapid access.

In addition to the time-saving GUI, DSM 3.0 brings a number of upgrades for business users.
