Active Backup for Office 365

As cloud collaboration is becoming increasingly relied on in the workplace due to the flexibility and convenience it brings, businesses are also facing the need to own and protect the corporate data created and stored on cloud services. Hence, Active Backup for Office 365  is introduced to provide an on-premise backup solution to help prevent against malicious and accidental deletion, thereby ensuring complete control over employee data.

Take control of your business data cost-effectively

By going through a simple setup process, businesses can easily back up files stored on various OneDrive for Business to Synology NAS without configuring tasks one by one or relying on costly cloud-based backup solutions. 

Comprehensive file protection and restoration

In addition to files themselves, the corresponding metadata, such as the last modified time, and sharing permissions stored on OneDrive for Business are all supported for backup. When it comes to restoration, all the above-mentioned items can be restored to the original or any other OneDrive for Business directly without additional settings required, which is perfect for streamlining office collaboration.

Easy management

Active Backup for Office 365 allows businesses to back up OneDrive for Business in different domains and manage backups with its all-around features, thus maximizing IT admins' management efficiency. 

  • Centralized dashboard 

    A clear overview that enables IT admins to monitor real-time protection of OneDrive for Business on Office 365, backup status, storage consumption, and historical transmission at a glance.
  • Account discovery

    With the account discovery feature enabled, newly-created users will be automatically detected and selected for backup, which minimizes the possibility of leaving out any employee.

Your NAS, your control

Businesses can enable continuous backup to minimize the risk of data loss while flexibly preserving backup versions according to the time period set for file retention.  

Continuous backup 

Continuous backup allows businesses to back up users continuously, thereby minimizing the risk of data loss.

Flexible file versioning 

If changes are made, files 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.

Storage efficiency 

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

  • Single instancing 

    With single instancing, files that contain identical content will only be transferred to and stored on Synology NAS once, which helps save network and storage space.
  • Block-level deduplication

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

Self-service recovery portal

The convenient Active Backup for Office 365 Portal provides a simple way to browse and restore data for IT admins and employees. 

  • Efficient restoration

    Performing restoration tasks can be time-consuming for employees and might add to IT admins’ workload. With the intuitive Active Backup for Office 365 Portal, employees can easily restore files or folders by themselves  without the assistance of IT admins, which  not  only  enhances  efficiency  but  relieves  IT  team  members' burden  as  well.
  • Flexible role change

    For companies with a strict policy of prohibiting employees to restore data by themselves, MIS team members who possess admin privileges can flexibly switch between multiple accounts to browse different employees' backup tasks and help restore their data.

DSM integration 

Leveraging the maturity of DSM technologies and supporting the features of encryption and Btrfs, Active Backup for Office 365 ensures data security and storage efficiency. 

  • Encryption

    The built-in encryption feature strictly ensures confidentiality of data stored in shared folders, as no one can access their contents without a private key.
  • Btrfs-ready 

    For data stored in Btrfs volumes, compression can minimize storage consumption, while data scrubbing can correct major memory or storage errors.
