Active Backup for G Suite

Active Backup for G Suite

Active Backup for G Suite allows businesses to control and protect corporate data stored on G Suite by backing up and centralizing it to Synology NAS, thereby protecting against accidental events and satisfying data retention needs.

Your responsibility

It is your responsibility to protect your data being created on G Suite services, as they are not backed up or saved for long term need.

Protect your intellectual assets

When it comes to data security, businesses should take full responsibility of controlling their data and protect against human errors or malicious attacks.

Hold data for compliance and legal purposes

With industry regulations in place, organizations often face the challenge of data retention. In the long run, however, the storage space needed could incur significant costs.

Optimize the process for data restoration

As data on G Suite might take considerable time and effort to restore, it is crucial to enhance restoration efficiency and minimize work disruption.

Comprehensive G Suite backup

In addition to My Drive and Team Drive backup, the support for Gmail, contacts, and calendar is also available now in this beta version.

Drive data protection

My Drive and Team Drive data and the corresponding metadata, as well as Google online applications, are all supported for backup.

Mail protection

Gmail data, along with their labels, label structures and attachments, can all be backed up.

Contacts protection

Customer and partner relationships are key to business success. By backing up the contacts on G Suite, Active Backup for G Suite helps reduce the risk of losing such assets.

Calendar protection

More often than not, data is deleted only for us to realize that it’s still needed. Start backing up your calendar events in G Suite now for unexpected needs.

Smart restoration

With Active Backup for G Suite Portal enabled, both employees and admins can easily locate items for restoration and restore or export them with a few simple clicks.

  • Granular restoration

    Facilitate the restoration process by restoring a single file, along with its metadata, email, email attachments, contacts, or calendar events instead of an entire backup task.

  • Content search

    Content search helps filter out any email, mail attachment, contact, or calendar that contains search keywords instantly so that you don’t have to look through a mound of backup data.

  • Data preview

    Users can preview the content of an email, or the detailed info of any contact, before restoring to avoid wrong items.

  • Data export

    Mail, contacts, and calendar data can be exported in the EML, CSV, and ISC formats, respectively, while drive data and mail attachments can be exported in Office file formats.

Your NAS, your control

Businesses can enable continuous backup to minimize the risk of data loss while flexibly preserving backup versions by setting a specific duration for file retention.

Continuous backup

Continuous backup allows businesses to back up user services and Team Drive in a non-stop manner, thereby minimizing the risk of data loss.

Flexible file versioning

Data will be backed up if changes are made. When a backed-up file is updated to a new version, its previous version will be preserved for the period of time you set for file retention, so that at least the previous version will be available for restoration.

Management redefined

No matter how many domains are set to be backed up, admins can monitor and manage backup tasks effortlessly from a single interface.

  • Centralized dashboard

    The redesigned dashboard enables IT admins to monitor real-time and historical protection of backup services, storage consumption, as well as data transmission history.
  • Account discovery

    Account Discovery, which can be enabled by service, detects Team Drive or users whose G Suite services are enabled, and automatically selects them for backup, saving admins the trouble of manual setup.

Storage efficiency

Synology's advanced storage technologies enable businesses to keep the most data while using the least amount of storage space.

  • Single instancing

    Mail, calendar attachments (Btrfs volumes only), and G Suite files that contain identical content will only be stored to Synology NAS once, which saves storage space.
  • Block-level deduplication

    Files stored in Btrfs volumes on Synology NAS can be deduplicated with previous versions, minimizing the storage space required.

Active Backup for G Suite license

My Drive and Team Drive support is free, while advanced features, like mail, contacts, and calendar will require purchasing a separate license per user after the conclusion of the beta testing period. No license will be required during the beta period and software will have all functionality available.
