Active Backup For Business (Synology)

Active Backup for Business is a backup software tool for Windows PC and servers. Developed by Synology, the software enables businesses to back up various data types efficiently while providing an all-in-one backup solution that protects physical and virtual environments. The software offers centralized management through Synology NAS devices, which let users store backups directly on the NAS without incurring additional costs from cloud storage or third-party solutions. Active Backup for Business supports agentless VM backup using VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V technologies. It also allows granular file restoration from VMs, applications, databases, email systems like Exchange servers as well as endpoints such as Windows PCs and server documents with near-continuous data protection (CDP) capabilities to reduce RPOs.
