Founded in 1976, Al Anba Newspaper is a daily political newspaper and currently one of the most circulated publications in Kuwait. In 2001, Al Anba was the bestselling paper in the country, and by the year 2016 they have developed a good number of circulations around the world. The content of the paper focuses on political, social, technical and sports news. Al Anba Newspaper presents its news articles in an uncritical way since the paper has a pro-government stance.
Prior to adopting Synology's solutions, Al Anba had been manually backing up their data onto DVDs, servers, and older NAS models. They've always experienced issues with limited storage since 1976, and dumped their data on both NAS and SAN units. Since Al Anba utilized tape drives and DVDs for backing up the 15 TB data, the collection quickly became frustratingly difficult to manage. Aside from the backup needs, Al Anba lacked a dedicated surveillance system to monitor their Axis cameras, and had to resolve to using web links to monitor each.
