Cloud Station Backup for PC protection

Featuring real-time incremental backup technology, your data stored on a PC can be backed up to a Synology NAS instantly, using minimal system resources, bringing a truly comprehensive and secure private cloud experience.

Incremental backup: fast while reducing performance impact

Real-time backup saving you from massive data loss
Cloud Station Backup carries out the most complete backup tasks in real-time. When data is voluminous, real-time backup prevents massive data loss due to unexpected disaster during backup cycles.

Sync your files Accross All your Devices

With Cloud Station Suite, every change made to your files will be automatically synced to other devices such as PCs, mobile devices, or another Synology NAS, while multiple data versions are retained so that you can recover files from a previous point-in-time when needed. There are many ways to manage your data with tools for administrators to monitor and manage various tasks.

Reviews
2 Bay Synology DS218J NAS, 2x 2TB HDDs, RAID 1 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install NAS with lots of features Having the NAS populated with disks and set up as RAID1 made it straight forward to install and set up. After reading the relevant parts of the Synology knowledge base it was easy to set up shared folders, and folders synchronised with two PCs. Lots of other features which I have not had need of as yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty easy set up Scan has installed two HDs so just needed to plug it in. Came well packed. Synology easier to set up than my previous Zyxcel NAS and as the disks are mirrored if one fails I should be able to replace it and keep going without reinstalling everything from back-ups. Good points: Looks OK Runs faster than previous NAS Well supported (but see comment below about back-up) Two Red WD drives (for NAS) should last a long time Bad points: Struggled a bit to get back ups to Cloud (I have Memopal account - Memopal do have a Synology app which I've now got working) Also I wanted to back up to an onsite NAS (not Synology) which took a little while to sort Overall pleased with product, feel safer with two (mirrored) HDs Am also experimenting with Synology's cloud offering - got a free introductory offer. This was easy to set up so as long as you think Synology are going to be around to support their cloud and you don't have an existing cloud provider, this could be the way to go for cloud back up with this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small business NAS drive Had no problems installing and connecting to the network so we could all access (as a small business). It took a while to figure out a sensible folder structure for each person and how best to configure but the application is reasonably good and easy to use. We needed a device that is up and running 24x7 and stable, unlike our old WD nas and so far so good. No complaints so far!
