C Library and Linux kernel updates
ADM 2.6’s built-in GNU C library has been upgraded from eglibc 2.13 to glibc 2.22. From now on, no matter if it's ASUSTOR’s in-house developed functions or 3rd party developed Apps, all will be able to benefit from the new library’s high compatibility and flexibility. Also, in an effort to increase the stability, performance and security of the Linux system in ASUSTOR NAS devices, ADM 2.6 upgrades the Linux kernel for AS50/51/70 devices to the latest 4.1 long-term support version found on AS31/61/62 series devices.
Constantly evolving MyArchive technology
N-1 degrees of freedom
The number of simultaneous configurable MyArchive hard disks has been significantly increased to N-1. This means that for 4-bay models (e.g., AS6104T) you can have 3 simultaneously mounted MyArchive disks and for 10-bay models (e.g., AS7010T) you can have up to 9 simultaneously mounted MyArchive disks. When you access the data in a MyArchive disk, the other MyArchive disks can remain in hibernation, helping you save power. When used with local backup function, you will be able to take different types of files with different properties and neatly organize and back them up to individual MyArchive disks, all in one go. Furthermore, a newly added “Alias” field lets users self-define tags for MyArchive disks. This allows users to quickly determine the contents of MyArchive disks from within ADM File Explorer when multiple disks are mounted simultaneously.
Supports even more file system formats
The newly upgraded MyArchive mechanism can format hard disks to EXT4, NTFS and HFS+ file systems, significantly expanding MyArchive disks’ flexibility and availability. Furthermore, when no longer needed for MyArchive use, removed MyArchive disks can be put into eSATA/USB external enclosures and be directly accessible via Windows PC (NTFS file system) or Apple Mac devices (HFS+ file system), in addition to installing them on other ASUSTOR NAS devices for use.
Safe and secure data encryption
MyArchive hard disks now feature newly supported AES 256bit encryption* and can be configured to automatically mount on up to 20 trusted NAS devices for more agile use. Decryption method, In addition to entering a password or importing an electronic encryption key for decryption you can also now bind a USB device as a physical encryption key**, allowing you to securely hold your data security in the palm of your hand.
*The MyArchive encryption function only supports the EXT4 file system
**A single USB device can be bound to an unlimited number of MyArchive disks
Batch creation and importation of ADM accounts
When setting up a shared server, system administrators often have to spend a lot of time creating user accounts. ASUSTOR now provides a more convenient and efficient way to do this. Via ADM’s batch creation function, you can quickly create multiple regular sequential user accounts (e.g., student numbers). With regards to irregular non-sequential account creation, you can enter account data into a text file (*.txt, *.csv) and then import it into ADM to create accounts. During importation, the system will also check for the integrity of account data and indicate any errors making them convenient for system administrators to correct.
Scheduled iSCSI LUN snapshots
Configuring scheduled iSCSI LUN snapshots allows the system to automatically take regular snapshots based on the specified time period, providing continuous protection of LUN data without needing any manual operation or significantly affecting system performance.
