Ultimate Backup Solution

RS820+/RS820RP+ integrates various backup applications to safeguard your important data on any devices with an intuitive user interface and durable storage technologies.

  • Workstation/Server/Virtual Machine/SaaS backup: Active Backup for Business centralizes backup tasks for virtual machines, Windows PC, servers, and rsync/SMB file servers and offers various recovery options to ensure lowest RTO. Active Backup for Office 365/G Suite is an on-premises backup solution for public clouds with a centralized dashboard, optimizing storage efficiency through the single instancing and block-level deduplication technology.
  • NAS backup: Hyper Backup comprehensively backs up your data to a local shared folder, an external device, another Synology NAS, an rsync server, or Synology public cloud service, Synology C2 Backup5, to ensure data safety and availability can be achieved when a disaster happens
  • Computer backup: Synology Drive Client backs up your Windows, Mac, and Linux desktop devices to safeguard important computer files. RS820+/RS820RP+ is also compatible with Time Machine, allowing you to effortlessly back up your Mac to Synology NAS.

Btrfs: Next Generation Storage Efficiency

RS820+/RS820RP+ introduces Btrfs file system, bringing the most advanced storage technologies to meet the management needs of modern business:

  • Advanced snapshot technology provides schedulable and near-instantaneous data protection of share folders and iSCSI LUNs.
  • File and folder level data restoration brings great convenience and saves time for users who wish to restore only a specific file or folder.
  • Flexible Shared Folder and User Quota System provide comprehensive quota control on all user accounts and shared folders.
  • File self-healing allows Btrfs file system to auto-detect corrupted files with mirrored metadata, and to recover broken data using the supported RAID type of volumes, including RAID1, 5, 6, and 10.

Reliability, Availability & Disaster Recovery

System reliability is critical for business everywhere. RS820+/RS820RP+ responds to these concerns with wide-ranging availability and redundancy features:

  • Synology High Availability ensures seamless transitioning between clustered servers in unexpected disasters and ensures that your services remain online.
  • Snapshot Replication provides schedulable, near-instantaneous data protection, ensuring that your business documents in shared folders, virtual machines in iSCSI LUNs, or dockerized application data remain safe and available in a disaster.
  • Redundant power supplies (RS820RP+ only), system fans and network ports with failover support ensure continual service uptime.
  • High reliability system design, including fan-less CPU heat sink and passive cooling technology, prevents single points of failure.
  • Optional 5-year warranty1 is available in select regions.
