Pain points solved and needs satisfied

  • Global deduplication greatly reduces identical blocks across devices, platforms, and versions – with the proven 50%+ deduplication rate in real customer environments.
  • Forever-incremental backup identifies and transfers only changed blocks to reduce backup time and bandwidth.
  • Ensures backup consistency of VSS-aware applications, such as Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SQL, and SharePoint.
Highly efficient backup experience
  • Bare-metal recovery: Bare-metal recovery (BMR) helps you recover disk images, applications, settings, and data in the event of disasters.
  • P2V recovery: Instantly boot the backup image on VMware, Hyper-V or Synology’s own hypervisor platform, Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), to recover your service.
  • Self-service recovery portal: Allow users to perform instant file and folder recovery on their own without IT support.
Versatile ways of restoring

Inspect a video of your server backups starting up to ensure integrity and reliability. After a server is backed up, the startup sequence can be recorded and sent to you, helping you identify and troubleshoot issues before they escalate.

Protecting business file servers without the need for an agent

File servers implementing common protocols like SMB and rsync are under our purview. With simplified setup, Active Backup for Business reduces management costs for IT admins as all of the important information you need has been centralized to one dashboard, and one DSM.

Protecting business file servers without the need for an agent

Simple deployment with agentless backup

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

Agentless backup

Back up files on a daily basis, without having to install complicated and costly agents on source servers or worry about affecting client performance and agent compatibility.

Flexible backup schedule

File server backup supports flexible schedule options from hourly to daily on the days you wish to back up to fit with specific protection policies.

Simple deployment with agentless backup

Backing up is your responsibility

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

Multi-versioned mode

Multi-versioned mode

Offers multiple recovery points by creating a new version for each backup run, allowing you to easily recover files from any previous point in time.

Mirroring mode

Mirroring mode

Suitable for users that need only the most updated version of their files, as it overwrites the backup on the target based on the changes made on the source.

Incremental mode

Incremental mode

It can be used for archival purposes, as the backup will be overwritten by the newly added and modified files, while keeping the deleted files on the target.

DSM integration

Leveraging the maturity of DSM technologies and supporting encryption as well as Btrfs, Active Backup for Business can greatly enhance data security and storage efficiency.

Encryption

The encryption feature ensures that the data stored in shared folders are strictly confidential as no users can access the content without your private key.

Btrfs-ready

For data stored in Btrfs volumes, compression can minimize storage consumption, while data scrubbing can correct major memory and storage errors.

DSM integration

Supports SMB and rsync

SMB and rsync protocols are supported in file server backup

An SMB server

An SMB server

SMB is used to transfer files from Windows file servers to your Synology NAS. Taking advantage of FSRVP (File Server Remote VSS Protocol) integration, the consistency of your backup is ensured. In addition to file backup, Windows ACL can also be backed up, letting you easily restore files and access control at the same time.

An rsync server

An rsync server

The rsync protocol is used to transfer files from servers to your Synology NAS. Taking advantage of rsync, you can enable block-level transfer, encryption, compression, and bandwidth control, enjoying safe and efficient transfers. In addition to file backup, Linux POSIX ACL can also be backed up.
