With the rise of digital work, security is of utmost importance these days when it comes to businesses. Even the smallest of companies often struggle with backup solutions for their data. But it shouldn’t be that way right? Modern conveniences should allow a smaller company to have a very simple backup solution that just works without costly hardware and software fees.
Did you know that Synology has a simple solution for every type of backup that your company needs? And the great part about it is that all of them are very easy to use. Even someone who’s not well versed in IT can follow instructions and end up with a reliable backup solution for their company. Synology has three types of backups for their customers, File-level backups, Bare-metal backups, and Cloud backups. We’re gonna talk about them here and you can choose which one suits your needs the most.
File-level backups is basically choosing the files you want to backup and protecting these important data. Not all of us have the luxury of backing-up entire computers or even the need to do so. As individuals or small companies, there are just certain files that we want secured whatever they may be.
Synology Drive may be the solution for you if you’re looking for something simple and very easy to use. The Synology Drive Client app can be installed in different PCs and these PCs can then backup whatever specific file they want. Users can also set-up backup tasks and sync tasks, you can schedule backups as well for added convenience.
What’s great about backing up specific files through Synology Drive is that it also allows users to share files among each other. So in a small company, or even a school, you can share files safely with each other. For example, in a school, a teacher wants to share school material with students. All the teacher has to do is backup the file to Synology Drive and share a link to the students and vice versa. Students can also upload their homework to specific folders in the Synology Drive so that the teacher may access these files. This applies to small businesses as well where file sharing needs to be quick and reliable. Employees can share files and edit these as they go so that they can work collaboratively very quickly.
If your company needs something more robust, something that can backup entire computers or desktops then Bare-metal backups are the way to go. This is the most foolproof way of backing up entire systems and recovering them as well. This is very important in case of unforeseen circumstances such as a disaster, or a crash that destroys the entire hardware.
This is something that shouldn’t be scoffed at, entire files can just go up in flames if they’re just stored locally in a hard drive or computer. There are so many points of failure when it comes to a computer, a physical hard drive can just conk out and your files are gone, a computer power supply can short a system and get rid of all your files. This is something that no company wants to happen but it does, so being prepared is the way to go.
