Seagate Technology inks a deal with Taiwan’s Synology, under which the former would provide IronWolf Health Management software for protecting Synology’s NAS (network-attached storage) systems from any malfunction or failure of HDDs (hard disk drives).

In an institutionalized tech alliance between Seagate Technology and Synology, the former would be providing its IronWolf Health Management software for protecting Synology’s NAS (network-attached storage) systems from any malfunction or failure of HDDs (hard disk drives). This leverages the hardware sensors and software suite built into IronWolf NAS HDDs to provide intelligent analysis of drive health that goes beyond traditional diagnostic tools. Synology makes of Seagate’s IronWolf NAS-specific HDDs.
In the domain of chaste NAS systems, Taiwan-based Synology is one of the leading players globally, which focuses on small office home offices (SOHOs) and small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Seagate’s IronWolf Health Management software would work in tandem with Synology’s DiskStation Manager (DSM) 6.1, which is core to its NAS systems.
IronWolf Health Management is embedded software designed on the pillars of prevention, intervention and recovery. In addition to providing state-of-the-art data recovery, IronWolf Health Management oversees the health of the DiskStation’s drives throughout their useful life by continuously analyzing key parameters, and intercepting, containing, and resolving issues quickly. Using information gathered from additional operating conditions like temperature and humidity, IronWolf Health Management can also recommend preventative actions users can take to avoid problems arising in the first place.
“Our collaboration with Synology helps us to deliver the best possible Software and experiences to our NAS customers,” said Matt Rutledge, Senior Vice President of Storage at Seagate. “IronWolf Health Management is a critical solution to maintaining the health of NAS drives and would have not been possible without this partnership”, added Rutledge.
Alex Wang, CEO of Synology America, viewed, “Something that is often overlooked, but imperative to business success is maintaining drive health by taking preventative action. Thanks to this partnership, we can deliver a product that not only makes it easier for users to monitor the health of their NAS, but makes it simpler in the event data recovery is required.”
