Block-level data protection
Snapshot Replication leverages the modern Btrfs file system to create point-in-time copies of shared folders and LUNs that can be replicated to other Synology NAS and rapidly restored in case of data loss or accidental modifications to the original data.
Reduce your Recovery Point Objective (RPO) by performing snapshot and replication tasks once every 5 minutes for shared folders and once every 15 minutes for LUNs.
Quickly restore snapshots of shared folders and LUNs to your original Synology NAS or failover a replication task and restore data access on another NAS in seconds.
Snapshots use less storage and computing resources than traditional backups, which can take hours to complete.
Flexible replication topologies
Defend against disaster by mirroring hot data off-site using a replication strategy that meets your business needs. Encrypt snapshots before replication and leverage flexible Grandfather-Father-Son retention policies to optimize storage use on both devices.
Management made easy
Users with access privileges can recover file or folder-level snapshots with File Station or Windows File Explorer without assistance from administrators.
Effective storage utilization
Efficiently manage storage capacity and plan backup strategies with space consumption reports that analyze shared folder snapshots.
View a log of any snapshots taken or deleted, replication updates, and recovery attempts to identify suspicious or accidental activity.
Disaster recovery for virtualization
Ensure data consistency and reduce RTO for virtual machines running on VMware® vSphereTM and Microsoft® Hyper-V® by taking application-aware snapshots with the Synology Snapshot Manager plugin available in Download Center. Replications can be managed in vCenter Site Recovery Manager by integrating the platform with Synology Storage Replication Adapter and can be directly recovered via VMware vCenter Server for a simplified recovery process.
Physical snapshot transfer
Reduce replication transfer time and traffic over a network by exporting the initial replication data to an external storage device and importing the copy to the destination server.
Smart administration tools
Verify failover effectiveness
Perform test failovers for replication tasks to ensure that the recovery process works as expected in the event of a disaster.
Optimize network usage
Once a replication task has been completed over WAN, you can view a report to evaluate its success and further optimize the network environment.
