Active Backup for G Suite

Active Backup for G Suite allows businesses to control and protect corporate data stored on G Suite. Mail, contacts, calendar, and Drive data can be backed up and centralized to Synology NAS, 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 protecting against human errors and 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 data restoration process

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

Fear license fee no more

Free your business from license fees. Select an ideal Synology NAS to back up unlimited user accounts, as long as storage capacity allows – completely free of licenses.

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 within a few 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 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

Businesses can continuously back up user services and Team Drive, 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 comprehensive 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 per 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.
  • Login with Office 365 accounts

    Join your Synology NAS as an SSO client to Microsoft Azure AD, and employees can log into the self-restore portal simply with their Office 365 account. Know more.

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 your Synology NAS once, which saves storage space.
  • Block-level deduplication

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