Synchronization Synology

Synology Synchronization 


Synchronization Synology the Synology Cloud Station automates data synchronization between connected client devices. Currently supported clients include Windows PC, Mac, Linux computers, iOS and Android mobile devices, and Synology NAS. Each client can download or upload data selectively based on the criteria for folder and file filters. The Cloud Station Suite has Selective Sync and offline editing features, allowing files to synchronize seamlessly to various devices after the device is connected to the Internet.

Users can choose one-way or two-way synchronization according to their needs. Rather than maintaining a collection of other user accounts for third-party synchronization, IT administrators can take advantage of existing DSM accounts for file services and synchronization. Furthermore, the Cloud Station complies with the existing shared folder privileges and Synology ACL during synchronization so that no additional privilege settings are needed to restrict users from downloading or modifying data that they are not entitled to access. 

This section explains how the server recognizes clients and how shared folder privileges are synchronized to ensure safe access. Access Tokens For servers to verify client identity, each client is asked to have an access token and present a token every time he issues a request. This token is obtained during the initial link between the server and the client. This access token is used by verified clients in all subsequent file synchronization requests. 

 Synchronize Files or Folders

Every time the server receives a client request, the server first checks the access token in the request to verify the client. The verification process includes security checks such as account validity, privileges, checking access tokens, and more. If one of the verification steps fails, the request is rejected by the server to ensure maximum security. Privilege Access privileges are given as a result of a combination shared folder privileges (UNIX permissions) and ACL. Users need settings that are quite special for each request to synchronize files or folders.

This feature allows you to synchronize files to certain devices according to the format or size of the file. For example, you can only synchronize important files in a small size to a mobile device and synchronize large files to DiskStation, thus flexibly implementing storage space. All changes made during offline editing will be synchronized to the Cloud Station after your device is reconnected to the Internet. For example, annotations made on PDF files through the DS Cloud during offline will be synchronized to other devices after being reconnected to the Internet.
