Highly reliable architecture

Combine two identical Synology High Availability (SHA)-compatible Synology NAS to create a high-availability cluster.

Real-time protection

Achieve a near-instant Recovery Point Objective (RPO) by replicating data in real time between an active server, which handles all requests, and a passive server, which remains on standby.

Minute-level failover

Bring your business back online with a minimal Recovery Time Objective (RTO) by automatically failing over all data and services to the passive server should the active server be unavailable.
