Synology Data Recovery for Disaster Scenarios   

Thousands of enterprises worldwide rely on Synology products for large-scale storage. In 2011, only Netgear and QNAP shipped more units than Synology, which controlled an impressive 13.4 percent of the global market.

With top-rated models suitable for any level of storage, Synology RackStations and DiskStations provide dependable service for home and business users. The company offers optional RAID storage on all of its products with multiple HDD trays, and many RackStations ship with standard RAID configurations in place.

However, even with the distributed parity of a RAID 5 configuration or mirrored block redundancy, no storage device is 100 percent fault-tolerant. Synology NAS devices are not immune to component failure, and rebuild errors are always a danger for certain RAID levels.

 Some of the more common causes of data loss for Synology DiskStations and RackStations include:

  • Server Hardware Failure – Higher-end RackStations include redundant power supply units, but most Synology NAS rely on a solitary component to drive power, and power units are not the only single point of failure in Synology servers. Any component may fail unexpectedly, and hardware failure can place data at risk.
  • HDD Failure – Synology RAID is designed specifically for fault tolerance, but losing a single HDD places greater stress on remaining drives in the system. Running RAID arrays in a degraded state may lead to further disk failure, risking your files. Physical damage, such as fire, flooding, or magnetic exposure, may also cause multiple drive failure in Synology RAID arrays.
  • Software Errors – Synology servers ship with a proprietary operating system called DiskStation Manager, which can develop system errors. When not sufficiently secured, older versions of DSM may be vulnerable to hacking attempts or software failure that limit access to your files.

Human error can also damage software functionality, particularly during RAID disk rebuilds.      

Synology RAID is not immune to these hazards, but when disaster strikes, depend on Our engineers have been working with Synology servers since they became available in 2000, and we continually develop expertise with the company’s advancing technology, from SSD cache read/write support to the latest version of Synology DiskStation Manager.
