Cloud backup application

Issue 7 2021 Integrated Solutions, IT infrastructure

Synology launched its newest Synology C2 cloud application. C2 Backup provides efficient data protection for Windows devices, whether they are located at home or distributed across multiple offices.

“With C2 Backup, we provide a fresh alternative for those who want to centralise protection of their devices, wherever they are,” said Yen-ju Lin, product manager for C2 Backup at Synology. “It is easy to set up and use and requires no additional hardware to protect Windows devices, allowing users to start backing up today.”

With C2 Backup For Individuals and C2 Backup For Businesses, everything on Windows PCs and servers can be securely and efficiently backed up from a single console. This includes system configurations and software, files and folders and external drives. Data backed up on C2 Backup is fully shielded against unauthorised access by end-to-end AES-256 encryption, with a user-held private key necessary to unlock backup files and sensitive information.

Flexible ways to schedule backups

C2 Backup makes use of forever-incremental backup to optimise storage and bandwidth.

Incremental backup reduces the amount of data uploaded for every backup to only those blocks that have changed, making backups more efficient.

Each subscriber can set their own individual version retention preferences. Retention policies can be tailored to meet individual needs or comply with corporate policies and regulations.

Finally, C2 Backup offers scheduling strategies to make sure that users never miss a backup. Users can choose to periodically execute backup tasks, or they can let them be triggered by events such as screen locking, account logout, or device power-up.

Fast and full restoration options

In the event of device failure, data loss or ransomware attacks, C2 Backup's fast recovery methods allow users to quickly resume services. File-level recovery allows you to retrieve any file you need immediately, while entire devices can be restored to their previous state with bare-metal recovery.

Pricing for C2 Backup For Individuals is based on storage use, with no limit to the number of devices protected under each subscription. Annual subscription rates start at $3.49 per month for 500 GB of backed up data or under $8.50 per month to protect up to 2 TB.
