Synology C2 Backup Highlights

C2 Backup is highlighted by its use of “forever-incremental backup.” This helps optimize storage and bandwidth while reducing the amount of data uploaded for every backup by only targeting blocks that have changed. In addition, subscribers can set their own individual version retention preferences to meet their specific needs or comply with corporate policies and regulations.

C2 Backup also offers scheduling strategies to help ensure users don’t miss their backups. With this feature, users will be able to choose if backup tasks are executed periodically or when events such as screen locking, account logouts, or device power-ups occur.

If a device fails or experiences data loss/ransomware attacks, users will be able to quickly resume services. Its file-level recovery retrieves files immediately, while entire devices can be restored to a previous state with bare-metal recovery. Moreover, C2 Backup uses end-to-end AES-256 encryption and a user-held private key, the latter of which is necessary to unlock backup files and sensitive information.

Availability

Synology offers C2 Backup in two subscription plans:

  • C2 Backup For Individuals: Users who register for Individuals until the end of 2021 will have the option of an extended 90-day free trial period to test the new platform’s capabilities.
  • C2 Backup For Businesses: Users who sign up for Businesses will additionally let Microsoft 365 users back up data stored on Exchange Online.
