If you own a Synology Network Attached Storage device your options for cloud backup just got a little bigger. IDrive today announced that they have released a backup app for Synology NAS. There are different ways to backup a NAS, one is to have a service that supports backing up a network share, the other is to be able to install the app directly on the device and have it backup directly to the cloud. If you have to choose the second is preferred over the first but there were not very many services that supported direct installation on the device.
You will need an IDrive account before you can use this new app. IDrive has been running a 50% off the first promo for awhile so you could get a decent amount of space to backup to for not to much money. If you have a Synology NAS it is something you or your business might want to take advantage of.
