Effective Backup Solution
Synology DS414 offers a centralized backup target to consolidate fragmented and unstructured data across a network. PC users can back up their data to Synology DS414 using Synology Data Replicator software, and Mac OS X® users enjoy native Apple® Time Machine® integration. A backup wizard is provided for backing up data from Synology DS414 to another Synology NAS, to other rsync server, or to an external drive.
Backing up to Amazon® S3 and Glacier cloud service is also supported. The add-on package, Time Backup, keeps DiskStation data in multiple versions, so IT administrators could easily keep track of them and restore to a previous version whenever required. Shared Folder Sync allows users to synchronize a specific folder from Synology DS414 to another DiskStation – a server-to-client backup mechanism that takes place whenever something is changed on the server side. Users will be able to share documents within their local office seamlessly and safely with encrypted connection. When your DiskStation is down, you will be able to have an immediate backup running in no time.
