Synology unveils ActiveProtect coming later in 2024

Network-attached storage manufacturer and IP surveillance solution provider, Synology, has introduced its new ActiveProtect appliances at Computex 2024.

ActiveProtect is a purpose-built data protection lineup designed to offer centralized management and a highly scalable architecture. These appliances aim to provide businesses with streamlined, comprehensive data protection solutions.

ActiveProtect centralizes data protection policies, tasks, and appliances across an organization, offering a unified management and control platform.

It provides comprehensive coverage for endpoints, servers, hypervisors, storage systems, databases, and services like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace.

This approach reduces IT blind spots and eliminates the need for multiple data protection solutions.

“Organizations are tasked with maintaining overly complex and costly data protection strategies, and we aim to solve all the challenges at once with ActiveProtect,” stated Jia-Yu Liu, Executive Vice President at Synology.

The lineup is designed for quick deployment and easy management. IT teams can set up the appliances in minutes and create comprehensive data protection plans via global policies using a centralized console.

Features like immutability, air gapping policies, and recovery procedures are made intuitive, significantly reducing operational overhead.

Each ActiveProtect appliance can function in standalone or cluster-managed modes. Storage capacity can be tiered with Synology NAS/SAN storage solutions, C2 Object Storage, and other ActiveProtect appliances.

Existing Synology Active Backup for Business deployments can also be managed from the unified interface, providing high deployment flexibility.

Apart from this, ActiveProtect also leverages incremental backups with source-side, global, and cross-site deduplication, ensuring fast backups and replication with minimal bandwidth usage.

ActiveProtect is up to seven times faster at backing up, with a typical deduplication ratio of over 2:1, significantly reducing operating costs.

ActiveProtect will be available through Synology distributors and partners later in 2024.
