Synology announced the official release of two major backup applications

The two major backup applications announced by Synology in its Active Backup suite– one is an Active Backup for office 356 and other is an Active backup for business. The official version of the Active Backup package for Office 365 supports SaaS cloud backup. While on the other hand the Active back for business is still in beta stage and meant to provide data availability for workloads in physical and virtual environments.

The Active Backup for Office 365 ensures the availability of Office 365 data every time and also helps the businesses in lowering the significant amount of storage space by using single instancing technology, said by the Synology.

It also enhanced the content search function by combining the mail and attachments which allow users to find and recover emails in shortest time.
