  • File storage and sharing.
  • Create active data archives or for data backup and disaster recovery.
  • Host virtual desktop infrastructure.
  • Test and develop web-based and server-side web applications.

Backing up means to manually or automatically copy files from one location to another, usually from one physical drive to another, although it could also be to an online location. Syncing means to manually or automatically copy or delete files as needed to ensure that two locations have an identical set of files.

4. Does Synology have cloud backup?
You can easily backup your Synology with IDrive's Synology backup app. IDrive is the cheapest cloud backup for Synology, with its Personal plan offering 5TB or 10TB of backup storage at a cheap price with the first year discounted. This plan can backup unlimited devices for a single user.
