Anyone have user experience with CloudStation for Mac?
I'm seeing software behavior that could sure be improved:
- Syncing 10GB takes a long time. 3 days so far on a 802.11n network. 10GB = 80Gbits, 600Mbits/s = 0.585 Gbits/s -> 136 seconds to complete. So far, 72 hours and not yet finished syncing.
- Loses connection and can't reconnect. I have to log out of my Mac and log back in to try to get CloudStation to try syncing again.
- Looks like "FIFO" design for which files will be synced first. That means the 10GB I copied to the cloud will need to finish (3 days so far) before I can retrieve my resume from the cloud. My resume is 45 KB.
If you're like me and are hoping to use CloudStation to keep files in sync on both a Mac and a PC, my experience so far is I can have either a Mac or a PC connected to the cloud, but not both. I have to shut off the PC to access the cloud on my Mac, and shut off the Mac to access the cloud on my PC. The CloudStation client does something odd that seems to be hosing the network access for the other computer's CloudStation client.
Not good so far, but Synology clearly states that CloudStation is Beta software.
