I have three Synology NAS units, two in the office and one at home.
In the office, one NAS is running as an SFTP server to allow customers to send order files. The second NAS is used purely as an onsite backup destination. Active Backup for Business backs up the first NAS and the PCs in the office. I also back up my Microsoft 365 data to this NAS.
My third NAS is installed at home and I want to use it as an offisite backup of the second NAS drive in the office. Should I use Active Backup for Business to do a complete backup of the NAS in the office or is Hyper Backup the better option?
The purpose of the offiste backup is to restore the full NAS if it fails or is lost. That’s why I’m thinking Active Backup for Business is the better option as it allows me to backup an entire Synology NAS.
We’re not using the NAS drives as file servers as we’re using OneDrive and Sharepoint for that. No one logs into the NAS drives other than me, the SFTP users and a file detection program to pickup the files and import them into my order system.
I’ve looked online and I’m unsure of the pros and cons of Active backup for Business and Hyper Backup and which is the best option for my scenario.
