This article will focus on a single DSM 7.1/Active Backup for Business feature that was a long time in the making. Announced a few years back, and implemented for the first time in DSM 7.1, bare-metal DSM and data restore is now possible using Active Backup for Business package. The first solid info of this was presented at the beginning of 2022, during Synology 2022 and beyond event.

Review of the MASSIVE WD Red Pro 20TB Hard Drive for NAS You really have to stop and marvel at the speed at which hard drives and storage, in general, grow every year. Despite the established rule of Moore’s law that these things double in size every two years, the very idea that Western Digital and their larger-scale NAS-focused WD Red Pro series of hard drives has now hit 20TB with the WD201KFGX is still a heck of an achievement (lest we forget that 22TB was also unveiled a month ago). Yet, in line with all this growth in storage, consumers’ and businesses’ appetite for storage continues to grow too and as big as 20TB of free space sounds, it is surprisingly easy for some to contemplate how they might fill it. Then you have to...

Synology 2022/2023 NAS and WD & Seagate Hard Drive Compatibility If you have been considering a large scale business or enterprise NAS solution from Synology in 2022/2023, then there is a good chance you have heard about a relatively recent change in how Synology has approached hard drive compatibility in this tier of their portfolio. This change (in brief) is that this tier of systems is only designed to be used with their own branded range of hard drives and SSDs (the HAT5300, SAT5210, HAS5300, etc) and practically all hard drives from long-standing partners such as WD and Seagate are not officially supported in their business/enterprise-scale systems. Now, it is important to stress that this is NOT a complete closed-door policy...
Synology RS822+ and RS822RP+ Rackstation NAS Unveiled If you have been keenly following Synology hardware and software releases so far in 2022, then I think it would be fair to say that they have been rather business-focused. With many of us anticipating the reveal of a new plus series 22′ 2/4 Bay in their lineup, we have all rather been caught off guard with the number of Small/Medium-Business to Enterprise solutions revealed so far. And today we want to discuss another entry into that tier of the brand’s portfolio, with the Synology RS822+/RS822RP+ Rackstation NAS – a follow up to the RS820+/RS820RP+ NAS revealed back in 2019, that is going to arrive with a familiar range of hardware choices from Synology, but in this tight 1U...
NAS Brands in 2022 – Get it Right, FIRST TIME! If you have been looking to purchase your first NAS drive, or are looking at upgrading the system that you have been using in your home/office for the last few years, then it is understandable that it is ALOT of get to grips with. Network Attached Storage has evolved incredibly over the last few years and has gone from a rather niche area of the I.T industry into something that pretty much all users can benefit from in their daily lives. With the monthly/annual subscription costs of cloud storage providers (such as Google Cloud, AWS, DropBox and Microsoft OneDrive) getting higher, as well as the size of our daily data skyrocketing, making the switch from rented 3rd party cloud space to...
Synology DS2422+ NAS Review – Go Big or Go Home? I think it would be safe to say that Synology sells quite a lot of NAS. The brand has always had a strong focus on software and providing ‘solutions’, as opposed to ‘flogging hardware’, but ultimately the outcome is that Synology continues to be the top brand in network-attached storage worldwide. One of the biggest reasons for this of course is Diskstation Manager (DSM, currently in version 7.1), the fully-featured network software that is easily comparable in design, utility and quality to many top tier operating systems. DSM 7 is included with all Synology NAS systems to largely the same degree, but when it comes to hardware, their portfolio has tended to spread itself a little more...
Nowadays, security is a top priority for almost everyone, especially businesses. Running your own services, or storing data but still being able to get to it all while away from your network is a common question. There are ways that you can get to your data while you are away from your local network by publishing the services over revers proxy for example. The "problem" there is that you have to harden those services as best as possible or limit access if you want to increase security. Also, you have to allow access to those resources on your router in order to be able to access them in the first place, and that means, you are not the only one that can do that. But what about when you have multiple locations that you want to have...
