"After we confirmed its backup and recovery features, we started to deploy this software to 23 clients. Say each computer has 80GB of data and system files, it's supposed to take up around 1.85TB after a complete backup task. However, thanks to the built-in deduplication technology in Active Backup for Business (ABB), it only took up 600GB and saved the storage space by at least 68%. We are satisfied with the overall performance and willing to deploy it to more client PCs." Zhang, Zhi-Zhong, Deputy Manager of Information Center at Yeng Hsingh
In response to rapid business growth, Yeng Hsingh has purchased various Synology storage devices aimed at different information applications and established a complete backup architecture to deal with unexpected disasters or human errors. Limited by a tight budget, Yeng Hsingh couldn’t afford backup software for client PCs, so they used virtual folders in Windows to allow each client PC to connect automatically to the corresponding volume in the file server, serving the purpose of protecting critical data. However, there was still room for improvement. Over the years, Yeng Hsingh has been satisfied with the reliability and availability from Synology storage devices. Introduced to ABB by Synology sales, Yeng Hsingh realized that it can back up all the data stored on client PCs, virtual machines, and Windows servers to a NAS, without any license fees. They joined the beta program in June 2018 and went on a 3-month trial.
Zhang, Zhi-Zhong, Deputy Manager of Information Center at Yeng Hsingh said, “a client-side backup software license in the market costs around NT$1,000, so we have to spend NT$100,000 every year for 100 PCs, and that will undoubtedly affect other important projects. By contrast, ABB does not require license fees and can centrally back up cross-platform data, which prompted us to give Active Backup for Business a try. We have successfully backed up 20 PCs so far.”
