Examining the Synology Hyper Backup Tool and C2 Cloud Backup

Following a long and productive development phase, including extensive beta testing, the Synology C2 Cloud Backup service is now available to general users on a worldwide scale. The announcement was made in tandem with the release of Synology's Hyper Backup tool, thus giving new and current users full access to cloud-based backups as needed.

Synology C2 Cloud Backup

The Synology C2 Cloud Backup service works on the Synology Cloud – or Synology C2 – in enterprise and home settings. Not only does it ensure the easy and efficient backup of important files, but it provides easy access to archives in the event that a disaster strikes.

Users who work with confidential, sensitive or private information can utilize the integrated encryption, either at the military standard of AES-256 or the more recent RSA-2048 protocol, to safeguard their data from prying eyes.

For a comprehensive solution, many users pair the Synology C2 Cloud Backup service with a Synology NAS. Apart from providing full cloud service and protection, it also includes professional technical solution, service consultation and more.

A snippet from the website goes into even further detail about their service, stating: "Synology C2 Backup provides file-level restoration for greater flexibility. Retrieve a specific file you need without restoring everything in the same backup task and save your precious time."

Pricing is another key selling point of the Synology C2 Cloud Backup. It's affordable enough for the average consumer yet powerful enough for startup and established enterprises of all kinds. The dashboard is easily downloadable – to any destination on your hard drive – and it offers file-level restoration as well as multiple historical versions without extra fees.

Synology Hyper Backup

For even more functionality, some are now pairing Synology's new cloud backup service with Synology Hyper Backup tool. It supports backup and archival to many different services, including localized, external devices, Synology NAS devices, rsync servers and a myriad of different cloud services – including Synology C2.

Synology's Hyper Backup supports automated scheduling, multi-version backup and backup rotation to eliminate old or redundant data. It also features data deduplication, military-grade encryption (AES-256 and RSA-2048) and advanced compression to help you maximize storage space. Users can also pause and resume backup tasks at any moment and for any reason – thereby giving more control to the IT team while still providing the automated services needed by today's enterprise users.

The tool can even be used to transform a Synology NAS into a fully centralized backup and monitoring system. According to their website: "The independent package Hyper Backup Vault allows administrators to examine all repositories from different backup clients and monitor the storage consumption and backup history of each task."

As you can see, it's a comprehensive and versatile tool that's sure to make a huge impact in 2018 and beyond.
