synology nas:




'Also, Cloud Sync now offers one-way sync options, making things easier when backing up data to a public cloud or vice versa, while data encryption guarantees files sent to the public cloud remain for your eyes only. '


the nas drives with dsm / disk station manager 5.2 and later can do one way transfer to cloud services, with encryption.. and if thats not enough Im sure something like box crypt would work on the device would substantially improve the encryption.


Do any of you use this approach? I am buying a 2tb nas to try it out with.


netdrive 2 and boxcryptor has been working wonderfully, but i am finding i need a non computer approach, and if a nas can backup and delete, so much the better.

I'm a fan of our products (eg, "I eat our own dog food"). 


Specifically, I'd only every use a Synology NAS if somebody gifted it to me. And even then....

I'm definitely a BYOD guy. 


However, if you want a turn key solution, it definitely looks like a good one.

backup is backup... what ever makes it..

brave on with one method, but if another happens to work too.. why not.. its another backup.

one isn't necessarily superior.. as things like amazon cloud are limitless and both can be used concurrently.


I will mention if it is a folly or not. I will have one tuesday.
