Additional features include SHR (Synology Hybrid RAID) that helps simplify the RAID setup by optimizing the disk capacities with data protection when different size hard drives are used.

AES 256-bit shared folder encryption is supported to ensure data security. In addition to "shared folders," sub-folder backup is now supported and for additional backup options, now Synology DiskStation can back up to the cloud using Amazon S3 service with the integrated settings in the DSM 2.3 beta.
