Synology 2022 Launch Event Confirmed – December 2nd 2021

Synology 2022 & Beyond – Video Streamed Event on Thursday 2nd December

Good news for anyone who has been wondering about what to expect from Synology in 2022, with the announcement of the global event ‘Synology 2022 and Beyond’, arriving next week. Synology has been hosting live events physically in numerous locations globally for almost a decade now and (as of last year) starting to move towards a global, video streamed event (for obvious reasons). These events have always been a great way for new and old followers of Synology solutions to find out how the brand has been performing, what its plans are for the next period and ultimately a good idea of what the brand will be prioritizing in its ecosystem. Last year we saw a large degree of focus towards DSM 7, their cloud platform’s evolution and indications on where they see their premiere products going. It’s a shame that we are still not returning to numerous, physical launch events around the globe, as this generally means a larger focus on hardware. No doubt a few planned 2022 (and even 2023) solutions will be revealed, but typically a global video streamed event means a greater focus on software and services. Still, this has always been a strong area for Synology and therefore still worth following.

How and Where Can I Watch the Synology 2022 Video Streamed Event?

The Synology 2022 and Beyond event has still yet to confirm how the event will be displayed at the time of writing. Last year te even was hosted via youtube and was then shown via a series of YouTube videos from the official Synology YouTube channel. I will update this article as soon as details on where to watch the Synology 2022 event as it gets confirmed.

What Do We Expect at the Synology 2021 Launch Event?

At this time, Synology is being characteristically quiet about the contents of their ‘Synology 2022 and Beyond’ event. Typically these events are introduced with a summary of how the brand has performed in the last 12-18 months, highlighting which hardware, software and services have excelled. Likely expect a big chunk of focus to go towards DSM 7’s rollout and how it has picked up on the last 6-7 months (outside of Beta’s and the RC). Synology has the following to say on their own News Room pages:

Synology Inc. today announced its virtual annual event will premiere on December 2, 2021.

On the heels of this year’s packed release calendar, 2022 AND BEYOND previews key improvements to core storage features and much-anticipated updates to networking and surveillance solutions, with major announcements across Surveillance Station, SRM, and DSM.

Major themes this year are performance, reliability, and security, with new features changing how users secure their data, networks, and physical assets, sync and share files, and manage large deployments.

So, not a huge amount to go on. However, the mention of the SRM platform is encouraging, as many have been wondering about the next step for the Synology router series (with continued information flying around regarding a WiFi 6 solution. Likewise, the mention of major updates on Surveillance station is something to wonder about – given the brand’s huge priority of their NVR hardware/software system. There has been a big, BIG focus in 2021 so far to Synology promoting their cloud C2 services, along with a lot of client applications for personal and business security, so how these will integrate into the rest of the existing Synology ecosystem is likely to be discussed too.

Of course, many users would like to see a big focus shift onto hardware – where are the 64bit ARM refreshes of the 1/2/4-bay ranges (DS122, DS222, DS422 and the PLAY series have been quiet for quite a while). Equally, with a big jump in their media ranges and support in the enterprise-level systems, will we start seeing some better support for U.2, SAS SSD or a new Flashstation? It’s too early to say and we will know in a little over a week. Expect a full write up here on NASCompares, as well as coverage of everything we learnt shortly after the event.

Here is the summary of Synology 2021 Event from last year:
