| Like the DS210j, the DS1010+, and other
| Synology NAS devices, the DS710+ runs
| version 2.2 of Synology's Linux-based,
| DNLA-compliant Disk Station Manager
| software, which is compatible with Linux,
| Windows, and Mac workstations. DSM 2.2
| enables automated backup features, remote
| file sharing, iSCSI target support, and

| It can do all that because it's basically an embedded Linux system with a
| gigabit NIC. I can SSH into it, assume root, install packages manually, and
| configure it pretty much like any other Linux box. However, it runs cooler,
| houses more storage, and uses less power than a regular server. I've been
| very happy with it.
