Synology’s Active Backup for Business is a powerful, license-free backup tool included with many of their higher end “plus” and rackmount NAS units. Here is my latest video taking a look at its integration with VMware vSphere and ESXi. I walk through installation, setup, backup and restore.
In short, it is an excellent tool that provides features you’d expect to see from enterprise “paid” backup solutions. For those with home labs or smaller environments, it makes the value proposition of buying a Synology NAS much more enticing!
