icloud drive integration

Unread post by seismick » Tue Oct 07, 2014 12:07 pm

Considering the planned support of OneDrive and existing support for Google Drive, Dropbox, and others, it would be great if Synology were to offer iCloud Drive support (especially in light of the virtually non-existent sharing features of iCloud and its lack of a dedicated iOS client).

+1 for iCloud support.

OneDrive is already supported (via Cloud Sync in the 5.1beta) and seems to be working well for me so far, but I too think that iCloud support would be a useful addition.

Please iOS 8 and iCloud integration would be great.

At this moment with iCloud drive and IOS 8 is possible to open a file, edit and save the file directly from iCloud drive. I mean for example an apple numbers file.

Does anyone knows if this will be possible as well with Synology NAS? At the moment we have to duplicate to iCloud drive first in order to edit the file in apple numbers. I understand that this was a limitation from IOS in the past, but still don't understand if IOS 8 changed this behaviour or not.

Thanks.

OneDrive integration is slow as hell. It can take 2 hours to upload a single image. Not sure if this is due to poor implementation by Synology or if the service simply does not allow faster transfers. Besides you grant Microsoft every right to your data, so highly recommended.
iCloud Drive seems a good alternative because the price is the same (at least for 200 GB which is what I need), and you do not sell your soul to Apple like Microsoft requires.

iCloud would already be very useful today, but virtually limitless when the new iCloud in the upcoming MacOS ships in September/October! Then you'll be able to save EVERYTHING in the iCloud and access all files locally without having it all (or any of it) saved locally!

Imagine the awesomeness if our NAS' could store/sync files directly on iCloud too.. Gold! Screw Google... iCloud will become lightyears better, plus 100% secure once Apple finish building their own mega server farm and their home build hardware (to prevent outside meddling like they said officially stated has happened with certain chips they ordered during shipment!) Google could never offer this level of security and privacy prioritisation since it conflicts entirely with their monetisation model, not to mention their ɐsu contracts (which include Android for those who didn't yet know...)
