" Synology products' stable performance, flexible and extensible design, easy system setup and excellent customer service, coupled with its reasonable pricing, all these have made Synology RackStation series our ideal choice " - Liang Minfu, Yuen Foong Paper's Network Administration Team of IT Department
Yuen Foong Paper was founded in 1964 and is a subsidiary enterprise under YFY Group. It is a professional service company that has developed from traditional printing entity into a complete printing and related services/products provider. It provides reliable service to customers and partners using efficient and professional technology. Its business scope includes safe prints, commercial bills, digital printing and paper trade, etc.
At corporate level, any information loss or damage can cause great inconvenience. To protect company data, Yuen Foong Paper needed a safe backup solution to guard against loss of any critical files. While attending to the matter, the backup solution also needs to be intuitive and easy-to-use for the PC-challenged employees.
Liang Minfu, Yuen Foong Paper's Network Administration Team of IT Department, said '' Backup solution is the first thing we look into when hunting for new storage implements. '' The department was satisfied with the complete backup solution Synology has to offer, along with its reasonable pricing. With the positive experience they had with two Synology DiskStation DS408, the company decided to take in RackStation series as their exclusive internal backup server.
Yuen Foong Paper now has 4 Synology RackStation RS409+ and 4 extension devices, Synology RX4. Two sets of RS409+ and RX4 are installed in the company headquarter in Taipei, and the other two sets are installed in the plant facilities area.
The flexible expansion feature of RS409+ indicates the storage space can be doubled instantly by connecting the RackStation with its expansion unit while still maintaining at a consistent and high transmission rate. This exclusive advantage resolves the trouble of insufficient storage space which large-scale enterprise often comes across.
Easy & Automated Backup
Currently, more than 400 employees in Taipei headquarter have installed Data Replicator 3 on their computer. Through this backup application, which is freely provided by Synology, employees are able to back up their files onto RS409+. Even those with limited PC-familiarity find Data Replicator 3 extremely user-friendly with its scheduled backup feature. Once set, the backup task is automated by Data Replicator 3, leaving no files forgotten. Having been in use for more than one year, the convenience and the stability of Synology products have considerably reduced IT staff's daily maintenance time. "The system is running so smoothly, and there's no operating problem whatsoever; coupled with the available Chinese user interface, any employee can find their way around it," Liang Minfu added.
To efficiently organize employees' backup files and provide privatized data storage, IT staff uses Synology DiskStation Manager internal '' Home Folder '' function to automatically create exclusive folders for each account. Employees can manage the files in their own home folder freely, or use it as general storage space for their files with full control. The IT staff found the “Home Folder” feature eased their workload significantly by dismissing the traditional manual privilege settings routine that’s both time-consuming and inefficient.
Great Customer Service
Moreover, Synology's excellent customer service is also highly praised by Yuen Foong Paper. For a big enterprise with mission critical data, being able to get technical help within 24 hours is as assuring as having an exclusive service team. Yuen Foong Paper remarks, '' Synology products' stable performance, flexible and extensible design, easy system setup and excellent customer service, coupled with its reasonable pricing, all these have made Synology RackStation series our ideal choice.
