infrastructure and related services.

Drive data protection

and sharing permissions, are both supported for backup.


Contacts protection
Customer and partner relationships are key to business success. By backing up the contacts on Office 365, Active Backup for Office 365 helps reduce the risk of losing such assets.


Mail protection
Data stored in a wide variety of Office 365 mailboxes, such as personal and shared mailboxes, along with their folders, folder structures, and attachments can all be backed up.


Calendar protection

Your NAS, your control

Businesses can enable continuous backup to minimize the risk of data loss while flexibly preserving backup versions by setting a specific time period for file retention.


Continuous backup
Continuous backup allows businesses to back up users’ services periodically, in a non-stop manner, thereby minimizing the risk of data loss.


Flexible file versioning
If changes are made, data will be backed up. When a backed-up file is updated to a new version, its previous version will be preserved for the period of time you set for file retention, so that at least the previous version will be available for restoration.

Management redefined

No matter how many domains are set to be backed up, admins can monitor and manage backup tasks effortlessly from a single interface.

Centralized dashboard
The cleverly redesigned dashboard enables IT admins to monitor real-time and historical protection of backup services, storage consumption, as well as data transmission history.

Account Discovery
Account Discovery, which can be enabled by service, detects users whose Office 365 services are enabled and automatically selects them for backup, saving admins the trouble of manual setup.

Storage efficiency

Synology’s advanced storage technologies enable businesses to keep the most data while using the least storage space.

Single Instancing
Mail/calendar attachments (if stored in Btrfs volumes) and OneDrive files that contain identical content will only be stored to Synology NAS once, which saves storage space.

Block-level deduplication
Files stored in Btrfs volumes on Synology NAS can be deduplicated with previous versions, minimizing the storage space required.
