Test System Setup




Our Consumer NAS test 'system' is setup similar to what you have at home. Here we have the base of a ASUS Z97 USB 3.1, housing an Intel Core i7 4770 with 16GB of Patriot Viper DDR3 supporting. Our Operating System of choice is Windows 8.1 x64 Enterprise, with all available updates and patches installed on a Crucial MX200 500GB SSD.




To aide in setting up the NAS, Synology uses its finder app called Synology Assistant. Seen above, we are running it on OS X.




After launching the application, we wait for a few seconds while it searches out NAS appliances on the network. After it finds your BeyondCloud appliance, you simply click connect to start setup.




Starting the setup procedure, we first choose our update settings. Options include an automatic update feature, along with downloading but waiting for you to confirm before installing.




Next, we choose which of the recommended packages to install.




Once we enter DSM, we get a transparent menu that shows you all the sub menu items available.
