Overall Satisfaction with Synology DiskStation

Synology DiskStation is being used to perform local backups from multiple servers across our facilities. We manage an entire facility with more that 1000 employees and all information that is created under all applications from every department, warehouse, Final assembly, Quality etc, along with shared folder for all users is backup locally using Synology disk station. We rely in this unit perform daily backups for all information and to have this same date available at any time during any contingency.
  • Very easy setup.
  • Fast restores.
  • Excellent applications within the integrated OS.
  • Efficient support.
  • Easy to ready and understand log of events.
  • A display indicator in the device would be great for priority events.
  • The unit power supply failed, an alert with more details in this events would be great.
  • Even when restore is easy and in good time I believe it could be improved.
  • We had server hardware failure and withSsynology all information was safely store.
  • Shadow copy is disabled in our servers, and DiskStation provides us the easy restores we need.
For a local solutions the restore process can take minor time than Druva and I believe is faster than EMC.
