Virtual Machine Manager

Virtual Machine Manager opens up abundant possibilities. You can set up and run various virtual machines, including Windows, Linux, or Virtual DSM, on one Synology NAS. What's more, you can also test a new software version in a sandbox environment, isolate your customers' machines, or increase the flexibility of your server.

Virtual DSM

Provides an equally intuitive experience as DiskStation Manager, offering a reliable storage solution with robust features.

Rock-solid security

Virtual DSM serves as a substitute for DSM, consolidating your Synology NAS with virtualization technology. There is no need to worry about being attacked since the physical host will always be intact.

Robust DSM features

Setting up a virtual environment does not mean you have to compromise. Almost all DSM features and management tools on your Synology NAS, such as Cloud Station, Mail Server, and other advanced storage features (storage quota, NFS, and iSCSI), are also available on Virtual DSM. Learn more

Snapshots for virtual machines

With snapshot technology provided by Virtual Machine Manager, you can perfectly clone and restore a virtual machine within seconds. From now on, no more anguish caused by human error or hardware failure.

Live migration

No time delay should be tolerated, especially when it comes to business. Virtual Machine Manager makes it possible to seamlessly migrate Virtual DSM instances from a Synology NAS to another. If that is not reassuring enough, you can also store your data on a third machine. Farewell to downtime that breaks your deals or interrupts your production procedure from now on.

Flexible IT resource management

You can allocate hardware resources such as computing power, storage space, or network interfaces among several virtual machines.

Multi-tenant environment

Create multiple isolated virtual machines for subsidiary business units or departments. Deploy applications for short-term usage with minimal hardware upgrades or maintenance required.
